It seems that any ill we have now a days has a pill that we can take to cure it.
I went to the doctor's yesterday for a routine check up, while talking it came out that I am tired (nothing to do with a new baby being around) and I asked to have my iron checked. By the end of the conversation my doctor is trying to convince me that I have postpartum depression and that some anti-depressants will really help. (Apparently, he had just come from a conference that said 30% of all women have postpartum depression and even though I don't fit the "classic" case, I could probably get more energy by taking the drugs.)
So I asked my doctor if there was anything else I could do! He had a few suggestions but came back to the drugs. Just for everyone's information there is A LOT you can do besides drugs. For more information on the Depression Recovery Conference coming to SLC, this November 7 and 8, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyway, slightly on the same note, check out the Parental Consent Act of 2009.
