Am I The Targeted Audience?

Always so cool.

There I was lying on my sofa feeling drained of all life and energy when a maxi-pad commercial comes on showing this beautiful woman jogging, presumably while she's menstruating. The next scene is of her showing up for rounds as a medical resident, after which she goes out for a night on the town with her girlfriends.

Really? All those months in pregnancy and breastfeeding seem silly now when I think about the joys to be had shedding my uterine lining. From now on I'll think of it as a career boost!

Lots of good advice for any family with a special needs child! Didn't know that about PPD! Now I know why my doctor called me a whole bunch after the birth of our second baby which was just less than a year after our oldest childs diagnosis!
