It was the darkest time of her life
Mackenzie’s husband believed that she was cheating while also threatening to kill herself, so he decided to move out for a while. She continued, “My postpartum was so bad. I was in the bathtub and Josh took the kids. I definitely needed him, but I was pushing him away. He would come home from work and I would be crying and I would threaten suicide. He couldn’t handle it.”
‘Go Kill Yourself’
Josh was no help to Mackenzie even though she claimed that she never even flirted with the guy she was texting. She recounted, “He said, ‘I don’t love you, you’re crazy.’ I was suicidal. He said, ‘Go kill yourself, but don’t do it in front of me and the kids.'”
However deeply she fell into depression, she was able to find her way out of the darkness. Josh came back home, and they now live as a happy family of five.
