Eastenders and postpartum psychosis

(2 Posts)

Just wondering if anyone else watches EE and has experienced postpartum psychosis?

I have bipolar and experienced psychosis after my DS (now 2) was born. I was lucky in that it was picked up and treated relatively quickly because of the excellent post natal care from my psychiatrist and psychologist.

I enjoy Eastenders but I'm feeling a bit weird about watching the storyline. I think they usually handle Stacey's storylines well and I don't feel like I'll find this triggering as such just... Difficult to watch maybe?

I wanted to know if any other EE fans had similar experiences and wanted to chat about the upcoming storyline? I'm on the main EE thread but didn't feel it was appropriate to post there.
