“I have been struggling with a lot of different things emotionally since I had Genevieve,” she opened up on her official Facebook page last night.

“I was diagnosed with post-partum depression and was on medication for a little while for it, but I never followed up with my appointment.

"My mood wouldn’t stay stable for very long, I was extremely impulsive, couldn’t focus, the smallest things would set me off, and my anxiety got worse, as did my depression and OCD.”

After feeling “there wasn’t much of a reason to live anymore,” Cashmyer went to extreme measures.

“After trying to overdose, I was taken to the hospital and have been in there since then,” she wrote.

The young mum was hospitalised and her daughter, Genevieve, was cared for by her parents, as well as ex-boyfriend and the baby’s father, Derek.

Thankfully, though, the new mom, who works in a Baltimore strip club, has since been released from hospital and is now feeling hopeful for the future.

“They felt that I had made enough progress that I could go home today,” she said.

“I am now on medication and feeling great. I feel like my normal self; happy, smiling, talkative and thinking clearly.
