Saddest Story in the World

This sad story comes to us from Texas. A mother, suffering from postpartum depression, cut the arms off of her 11 month old daughter, resulting in the baby's death. Covered in blood, she called the police and waited for them to arrive.

My heart goes out to the family and the police and paramedics who were called to the scene. The person who will receive the least sympathy is the mom and that's too bad.

I don't know what happens to a woman when she is suffering from post-natal depression. I don't know what goes on in her head. When this woman snaps out of it, if she was sane to begin with, she is going to feel so guilty, we'll probably hear about her suicide in days to come.

It's a sad story all around.

I don't know if it is a other story but i heard a story that is a mom who has very bad depresion and brain damge and has medicine for it so she may have kids! One day she had a feeling her medicine was not working so she tryed everything, calling her friends, police and husband they all ignored her! so it got worse and she grabbed a gun and shot her youngest and the other wounded in the arm!

I don't know what happed to the woman but i hope the kid it alright!
