Look, if you have a bad relationship with her, that's one thing. I can take pity and say I'm sorry you have a poor relationship with your boyfriend's mother. But coming on here and going all "FML" about another woman's psychological condition isn't gonna gain much sympathy. Maybe she felt she could confide in you and tell you this personal, painful bit of her history without you. All I'm saying is that, if your relationship is that bad, complain about something else, instead of her post-partum depression. One more thing: It's also not appropriate for a 17-year-old to talk about marriage. I seriously doubt you're mature enough or ready for it. (And no, that's not judging you personally. That's my opinion on all 17-year-olds.)

Postpartum depression/ psychosis is a very real, very scary condition! She was obviously opening up to you, and told you about an extremely personal, tragic time in her life. You should be ashamed of yourself for judging her so harshly.

i respectfully disagree with the marriage comment, talking about marriage is one thing, which I believe can be done at any age, as long as the marriage doesn't happen that young or close to then.

You say she was drinking when she told you this - she probably wasn't in her right mind. Besides, she's your mother-in-law, not your mother - at least you don't have to worry about inheriting her post-partum depression.

You don't appear to realize that the people on here don't care about your life's story, they care about a 1-3 sentence snippet about something bad (hopefully amusingly so) that happened to you. This fml wasn't funny to begin with, and your attempts at defending yourself just make it more pathetic.

#20. Actually, you're wrong. It actually is common for women with post-partum depression to be stressed and depressed enough that they fantasize about killing their baby. It's sad, it's scary, but it's something they have no control over. Don't judge. It's a very real condition.
