British actress Billie Piper was diagnosed with post-natal depression following the birth of her son, but refused to take any medication to treat the condition.
The Secret Diary of a Call Girl star welcomed her first child, Winston, with her husband Laurence Fox in 2008.
Piper went back to work on the TV show not long after giving birth, and admits she struggled to cope. Five months later she consulted a doctor, who diagnosed her with the baby blues, but the 27 year old was determined not to take any "pills" to make herself feel better.
She tells Britain's Glamour magazine, "The doctor said I had post-natal depression. Secret Diary was a stressful time. I had started leaving Winston. I was finishing breast-feeding, which is really emotional. I don't know what warrants post-natal depression. They prescribed pills but I never took them. Pills frighten me. They're a road to nowhere. I feel I'm too strong in mind and spirit for pills. I didn't feel it was that desperate - it was just a bad day."
