一位母亲担心她的牧师丈夫在儿子出生后患上产后精神病后,正计划与一名护士一起逃跑。

31岁的EleCushing在她的孩子乔希于2016年1月出生后8天没有睡觉,并变得被妄想所吞噬。

她担心她的丈夫格雷格,34岁,有外遇,在精神卫生工作者诊断她患有产后精神病,并切片之前。

但这只会增加她的偏执狂,并变得害怕她在科幻电影《饥饿游戏》中,担心她会"被送上舞台去牺牲"。

虽然很少见,但产后精神病会影响怀孕后的妇女,尤其是有精神病家族史的妇女。

PIC FROM Kennedy News and Media (PICTURED: VICAR GREG CUSHING, 34, WITH HIS SON JOSHUA CUSHING, THREE, AND WIFE ELE CUSHING, 31, IN APRIL 2019) A first-time mum has revealed the trauma of being SECTIONED for three months with postpartum psychosis (PP) that made her believe her vicar hubby was trying to run off with her 'pretty' nurse. Ele Cushing, 31, didn't sleep for eight days after her son Joshua Cushing, three, was born as she became obsessed with keeping her home immaculate and found her mind constantly racing. The overwhelmed new mum started seeing connections and conspiracy theories everywhere she looked and quickly became consumed by delusions and extreme paranoia. Alarm bells started ringing for Ele's husband Greg Cushing, a 34-year-old vicar, when he woke up to find his wife's Bible reading notes erratically scrawled over in red pen. After a visit from a mental health crisis team, Ele was diagnosed with PP and sectioned - which only fed into her paranoia. By this point, Ele's psychosis had left her so distrustful that she thought Greg and a nurse from the crisis team wanted to 'lock her up' so they could be together. Once hospitalised, Ele descended further into 'absolute mania' and believed she was in The Hunger Games waiting to be 'sent into the arena to be sacrificed'. SEE KENNEDY NEWS COPY - 0161 697 4266

她说: 我的演讲就像语言腹泻。该病主要表现为偏执、怀疑和不安全。

当危机小组来访时,有一个相当年轻的女人在那里,我记得她以为她要送我去关起来,这样她就可以和我丈夫在一起了——他们一起在一起。

在医院里,他们把我关在一间有窗户的房间里,这样他们就能观察我,我以为我在《饥饿游戏》中。

我记得在玻璃上敲打着,害怕我很快会被送进竞技场去牺牲。

我感觉自己有超人的力量,这确实有好几名工作人员来约束我。

"我会充电的走廊,试图休息,我不得不平静下来。这是完全和彻底的破坏。

Ele说,在医院之间转院是她最痛苦的回忆之一。

她说:"在冬天,我赤脚穿着短袖睡衣上衣,从父母和丈夫身边走过,

"我独自一人在一个笼子里,不知道我要去哪里。我以为我被贩卖走了,被运走了

我甚至记得,我当时想,我所爱的人正紧紧抓住面包车的后座,我们开车时,一个接一个地摔下来,摔到他们的死亡中。

What is postpartum psychosis?

根据NHS,产后精神病是一种罕见但严重的心理健康疾病,在妇女生完孩子后不久就会受到影响。

症状可能包括幻觉、妄想、躁狂情绪、情绪低落、焦虑或睡眠困难、失去抑制、感到可疑或恐惧、不安、困惑或行为失常。

如果妇女有精神病家族史,已经诊断出双相情感障碍或精神分裂症,有创伤性分娩或怀孕,或以前出现产后精神病,则妇女患产后精神病的风险更大妊娠。

最严重的症状往往持续 2 到 12 周, 它可能需要 6 到 12 个月或更长时间从这个情况恢复.

但是,通过治疗,大多数产后精神病妇女确实完全康复。

婴儿乔希于2016年1月7日健康出生,体重8磅13盎司,但他的母亲被直接送往手术室缝合。

曾从事出版工作的Ele说,随着她越来越偏执,她开始把单词和意义联系起来。

她补充道:"我觉得男人与女人有密谋——就像我们只是他们游戏中的棋子一样,在她们离开婚外情的时候,他们期望生孩子,经历这些可怕的痛苦。我变得相当不信任的男人一般。

在精神病院住了八周后,Ele得以搬到温彻斯特的母亲和婴儿病房,在那里她花了一个月的时间重建她与乔希的关系。

她接受了奎塔平的治疗,这是一种用于治疗精神分裂症的精神药物。

自 2016 年 4 月出院并搬进新房子以来,Ele 一直与抑郁、焦虑和 OCD 作斗争。
