Written by Dr. Dorree Lynn

If nothing else works, try talking to your machine. I knowrepparttar system you selected does not include that inrepparttar 126308 instruction manual, but it is a trick I have learned overrepparttar 126309 years. And foolish as it may seem, perhaps when no one is looking, caress your machine and give it a kiss.

Your system is only as good asrepparttar 126310 user and when upgrading, there can be no such thing as foolish pride. So if at first you donít succeed, try and try again. If all else fails and your system continues to deteriorate, please call in a certified technician before it is too late.

Life is too hard to do alone,

Motherhood And Madness

Written by Dr. Dorree Lynn


Continued from page 1

In spite of their original hardship, two ofrepparttar children blossomed, and two took many years to straighten themselves out and to grow into decent functioning men. Barbara made many mistakes alongrepparttar 126307 way. But who can blame her? In my view, she deserves kudos and badges for courage and perseverance and forrepparttar 126308 knowledge that she not only needed help, but also that she managed to find it.

It is a myth that mothering is easy or always joyous. There are few women in our society who donít knowrepparttar 126309 feeling of wanting to hurt a collicky or screaming child or leaverepparttar 126310 room in order not to. Most women haverepparttar 126311 feelings and never act on them. A few, like Andrea Yates, break and go overrepparttar 126312 edge into a realm unthinkable byrepparttar 126313 majority. These women are desperate and in despair. And, if married, their husbands, are equally culpable if they turn away from what they know is going on.

Barbara has remained a close friend. Her life path is very different from mine. But,repparttar 126314 wisdom gained from her struggles so generously shared with me, has taught me not to judge harshly. Motherhood is supposed to berepparttar 126315 best time of our lives. For many of us, as much as we may love our children, simply, it is not.

This column's for you,
