 'I'm Using Denial As Defence To Deal With Life', Says Octomum
Nadya Suleman, who became a history-making mum after giving birth to octuplets on January 26, has confessed that she uses denial as her defence to deal with life.

The 33-year-old, who conceived all her kids through in vitro fertilization, faced much heat after delivering eight babies, adding to her previous lot of six.

The single, unemployed mum said denial was her way of bracing the reality.

"I'm using's a defense mechanism," Us Weekly quoted her as saying in her daily video blog on

"I keep telling my head and rationalizing over and over that next week that [interest in my life] is going to die down," she added.

But Nadya, who has agreed to use the services of a non-profit agency to raise her brood of 14 after moving into a new house, was committed to her family.

She added: "It's going to take a long time to prove not only to myself but to the world I can be a very good mother and I can take care of these children.

"I'm obsessed with their health, safety and well-being."
