She still recorded and toured almost immediately after giving birth, and had paparazzi hounding her at every step. Oh, and her soon to be ex-husband wouldn’t allow her to see her kids very often. Did you ever think postpartum depression & the stress and anxiety from the paparazzi and not seeing her kids maybe had something to do with her behavior? Of course, at the time, most people thought she was crazy or on drugs. It’s amazing she didn’t act even worse, considering what transpired behind the scenes.
A few times in the book, she expresses regret for certain decisions she made, and admits to occasionally using Adderall.
Britney comes off as being pretty fair, sensible, and self-aware in her memoir. I hope she can work out her problems, and return to recording/performing, if she chooses. After all she’s been through, though, I wouldn’t blame her if she decides to live a private, “civilian” life. (Well, except for the Instagram posts.)
P.S. I wouldn’t be surprised if Britney has CPTSD after years of emotional abuse, but that’s for a real, impartial psychiatrist to determine.
