 Angelina Jolie Succumbs to Postpartum Depression
Topnotch Hollywood star and new-mummy Angelina Jolie seems to have hit the pause button for a while now. Reports suggest that, following the birth of the Jolie-Pitt twins Vivienne and Knox, the celebrity mother has slipped into post-natal depression.

According to the National Enquirer, the babies are said to be suffering from colic, a common but largely unexplained condition that causes repeated episodes of excessive and inconsolable crying.

Sources claim that the Tomb Raider star is struggling to cope with the twins' constant state of distress and has slipped into "depression mode", raising fears that she may be suffering post-natal depression.

"The 33-year-old has been trying to control her emotions" around her older children Maddox, 7, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, 2, but "her mood swings have been hard on the entire family," according to the source.

"She has been staying in bed most of the time, all she does is sleep. She has little energy and has to force herself to remember to eat because she is still breast feeding," the Daily Telegraph quoted the source, as telling In Touch magazine.

"She cries at the drop of a hat and laughs at inappropriate times," the source added.

I love Angelina Jolie as an actress and a public person.
But she needs to just deal with this problem she has the best medical people and household help available to her and this is just nonsense on her part. Slap yourself in the head and go on with your life. It is afterall just "LIFE" so come on now. Take your pills and enjoy your blessings and get on with the show.
