My brother has been on a long business trip for the past 4 months, it must be until Tet that he will finish his business trip to the company’s headquarters to work as before.
When he left, his sister-in-law was 8 months pregnant. Now she has given birth for 3 months, my brother’s work is busy, he only got a week off when she gave birth, then he quickly went back to work.
Fortunately, my brother and sister lived with my mother, so I had someone to help take care of my sister-in-law while giving birth. Her mother-in-law passed away early, her father married a new wife. When she gave birth, they only visited and gave gifts, but did not help during her confinement. I got married quite far from home, and I was busy, so I rarely went to play with my sister.

Last weekend, I took my children to my mother’s house to play. When I got there, I was startled to hear her crying in the room. I panicked and wondered, where did my sister-in-law and mother go to leave the baby alone with no one to comfort and take care of?
Rushing to my brother’s room, I was scared to see my sister-in-law holding a small sharp knife to her wrist. She cut into the flesh and the color began to flow. She stared blankly at the knife, not paying attention to the crying child next to her. I didn’t even come to her.
I was afraid to tremble, screamed for 1 hour and then quickly ran to snatch the knife from my sister-in-law’s hand, shouting why I suddenly thought about it? At that time, it seemed that my sister-in-law had just recovered, but she also remained silent and did not answer me, only quietly coaxing her daughter with her head bowed. And then, no matter how much I asked her, she definitely wouldn’t say a word.
I am also a woman who has given birth, looking at her sister-in-law’s signs, it is possible to predict that she is suffering from postpartum depression. After my mother returned, I asked her how she took care of her recently, whether my brother cared to encourage his wife or not.
– Oh, how to make matters so important, women who are not pregnant, in the past, when I gave birth to two of you, no one cared to ask how I was still healthy, the baby was still big.
Then I asked about it and found out that my mother took care of my sister-in-law quite superficially. She only looked after a month of confinement, when she went out of the month, she let her sister take care of the children all day and night, sometimes she was away all day, she had to cook and clean while taking care of the crying children. My brother’s wife just gave birth not long ago, but he doesn’t often call to visit with the reason that he is busy with work. I don’t know if he’s really busy or something shady, but it’s not difficult to call his wife and children for 5 to 10 minutes a day.
I told my mother that my sister-in-law seemed to be showing signs of depression, and she angrily dismissed it as saying that now women are so happy that they have many problems. In the old days, women and girls suffered much more, but never saw anyone suffering from depression.
I have decided to take my sister-in-law to see how her condition is. (Illustration)
I understand that my mother is from the previous generation, so I will think like my generation. Even I am her biological daughter, but when she gave birth, she did not come to take care of her, only occasionally came to visit. But now everything is different, how can we compare the past and present? Fortunately, I still have a husband nearby and caring.
I have decided to take my sister-in-law to see how her condition is. But the important thing is who will take care of her when she comes home. I still have my own family, my sister-in-law doesn’t have a biological mother, my mother is so conservative, and I can’t convince her.
I think that I love and care for my sister-in-law so much. Not only my sister but also my niece will be affected if my sister-in-law’s condition does not improve. I want to help her but don’t know how. Please everyone give me advice.
