Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies is going beyond her usual words of self manufactored joy of motherhood ending depression. Now she’s claiming that having the right attitude during motherhood prevents depression. I guess in Nancy’s world things like hormone imbalances, bad times, trauma, physical ailments and the like never happen unlike the real world.
Nancy says it. Nancy orders you to believe it.
Hey Nancy, depression does not work like that. There’s no depression-joy-flu shot, there’s not a magical hoodoo formula to stop it. Depression can be situational, physical illness, brain chemistry, hormones, so many things and NONE OF THEM INVOLVE ATTITUDE!
This is the lie in Quiverfull that has a body count. This thinking kills, leaving no room for human frailties like post partum depression, which is a real thing.
Going to repeat myself, if you are depressed, please reach out to a qualified health care professional to look at the causes and what can be done to help you through it.
