Helping yourself feel better

I’ve got a post up at Postpartum Progress that goes back to my time with the horrible, awful psychiatrist. (Remember her?)

She told me at one point to make to-do lists for myself that covered basic things, like eating and showering. At the time, I wanted to smack her.

I did come to realize that, while we’re struggling with something like postpartum depression, there is value in forcing ourselves to look at whether what we’re doing is helping us or keeping us stagnant. But I do (of course) have some suggestions for how she might have worded it differently.

Come and visit me over there.
