Since having her baby 10 months ago Candace says that she's had gruesome thoughts.

"Making a bottle, I would peer over at a cabinet where I knew the household cleaners were and I could actually envision myself taking cleaners and putting them in the bottle," she says. "If I was holding her and I could see our reflection in the window, I would think, 'What if I just threw her out the window right now?' The scariest part was actually being able to see it play out in my mind and it was me doing these things to her and I didn't want to hurt her but I could not stifle these intrusive thoughts about hurting her."
