Good Day

Today reminded me why I went into psychology. I had a new client who has postpartum depression. As she told me her story, I felt like it was a replay of my own bout - no appetite, no sleep, can't do day-to-day-things, and the worst: feeling nothing for the baby. I'm sure she thought I could read her mind as I was going down the list of things she was feeling or not feeling without her telling me. So classically sad...

I'm proud to say she left my office with a plan and a smile on her face. Now that's why I do what I do.

Yay for you! A terrible experience turned into helping someone else.
