This story breaks my heart and makes me angry at the same time. Here’s the title of the article:
“Mother quit antidepressant because she breast-fed son.”
It’s pretty self-explanatory.
“The sister of the 30-year-old who leaped from a Highway 401 overpass early
Sunday evening, ending her son’s life and her own, said Ms. Johnson made that
fateful decision based on two fears: appearing crazy, and hurting her son,
Sulla, who was still being breastfed. “She thought it would affect her baby,”
her sister, Charlotte Batticks, 18, said yesterday.”
