Life Today

Today seems like it has the potential to be a good day. I think my anger of the past week might be hitting an end. I got the book Mother Nurture from the bookstore the other day, and all I can say is wow, I so have Depleted Mother Syndrome. I haven't read a lot of the book but I am very impressed by their position that nutrient status directly affects depletion . . . after all, I was recently denied by a doc who thought I was in denial because I wasn't on medication for depression and she feared she would be considered responsible if I "went into a deep depression" and basically implied I might harm my children or myself in some way . . . in all fairness, this is after I told her that I was suicidal in my very early teens . . . but jeez, that was over 15 years ago!
Anyway, I'm rambling, and that wasn't really the whole story (I forgot to tell her, for example, that while my 6 mo has never seen a doc, we were under a midwife's care for 6 weeks after her birth). Point is, the book is great even if I do disagree with their exact ideas of healthy eating.
