Today's OPP is from Laura:



I haven't been myself since a couple of weeks after my son was born. I've been having mood swings and times where I'm kind of depressed. My husband is constantly pressuring me to go to the doctor and get on antidepressants but I don't want to. I understand women suffer baby blues and I'm pretty sure that's what it is, but I don't need a pill to help me. I don't want to be another one of those doped up suburban zombies that goes through life in a fog, forgetting her own emotions just to please everyone around her. I think the women that rely on a pill to make them happy are weak and lack the mental strength to deal with their own problems. Life is full of highs and lows and I'm going through a low period right now. I'll get through it. So how do I get him off my back and realize I'll handle my issues on my own?



How does she get her husband off her back about going on antidepressants and let her deal with her own issues?
