Well, its a beautiful, cool, breezy, summer morning in my neighborhood. I didn't get enough sleep (plane delays in Burbank) so I'm only half awake - but home.

The Archdiocese of Newark has anounced a new initiative: parish-based support to women suffering from post-partum depression. What an interesting idea. I wonder how this evolved? There's usually intersting stories behind something like this: a story that began in suffering.

This news comes via Postpartum Progress, the blog of Canadian entertainer Amy Sky, which offers lots of links and information about Post Partum Depression. She points out that something like 10 - 15% of all women who give birth in the US every year - at least 400,000 women - suffer from ppd in the US.

I have a good friend who suffered a psychotic break immediately after her first pregnancy and experienced more serious ones after babies two and three. She couldn't care for her own children for over a year after the last birth.

So no more children - for the sake of those she already has. The family are devoutly Catholic and remarkably upbeat and cheerful about the whole thing - but my friend will be probably be on anti-psychotic meds the rest of her life.

Knowledge and understanding at the parish level for new moms confronting ppd and more serious problems would be such a help. It is part of being truly pro-life.

If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama. My BF and I both agree that his son could not move into my home (which would ultimately be our home), so I am left to wait.
