She also opened up in her post about her past battle with perinatal depression.
“I have to say it is absolutely horrible… women didn’t talk about it back then … some people considered it dangerous if a woman complained like that with a baby inside her … but now women talk about it everyday … thank Jesus we don’t have to keep that pain a reserved proper secret.”
A court in November ended the conservatorship that had controlled her life and money since 2008.
The court was told that her conservators prevented her from marrying Ashgari and forced her to take birth control.
