for those who have kids or have been pregnant, AND/OR for those who work in or around the counseling/therapy fields....

i need your help...

hmm, i really have no idea what i'm going through right now, or if it's related to the pregnancy in any way (though it feels like it)...
but i keep having stuff popping up from my past, and some of it is quite bothersome. it's mostly related to my childhood and parents which is why i think it might be related to my pregnancy in that i am becoming a parent and will have a child soon...

but i don't really know which is why i ask. maybe i need help, or maybe i need antidepressants, i don't really know... but i really do NOT want to go through regular old talk therapy, because some of this stuff is stuff i don't want to talk about right now...

maybe an interactive counselor that can help give me ideas on how to get some of this dealt with in a healthy way... but who do i look for?

i'm scared i wont be a good mom if i don't get help now...

Today is the day

Choose today to face the challenges, and you'll come away stronger. Decide that
you will find a way to do what you know must be done, and the value you create
will endure long after this day is over.

Rediscover the sense of real, honest and irreplaceable fulfillment that comes
from moving in the direction you know is right. Experience the satisfaction of
knowing that you are truly making a positive difference.

Plant seeds of hope and encouragement with those you encounter. Keep your heart
filled with gratitude for the beauty and the possibilities that flow through
your world at all times.

Enjoy the reality of being alive and aware at this moment in this place. Look
for the positive in every situation and you will find it.

This day is your opportunity to put your dreams, your values, your hopes and
goals and desires into action. This day is your opportunity to allow the best
that is inside you to flow out into the world.

Jump enthusiastically into this day and live it as if everything you become
depends on the path you choose to follow. For on this day, it does.

Moms are human too!

Hello mothers, mom-to-be's, and future mommies!

This sounds like a great community and I can't wait till it takes off...

So someone on my friends list posted this article about Jailing Pregnant Women. I was wondering what your thoughts are on this topic...

To me, it's absolutely disgusting that the law/courts are even threatening women for their alcohol abuse problems. Women who have drug abuse issues aren't deliberately trying to harm their unborn children - drug abuse is a mental illness, it's an addiction that can't just be stopped cold turkey.

Now on a different but similar subject... To incarcerate a woman because she is practicing her LEGAL RIGHT to accept or deny medical treatment, it shouldn't even be an issue that these women are sent to jail or prison!!!

Absolutely disgusting to me... But I'd love to hear other opinions whether in agreement or disagreement with my own....
Just wanted to get a discussion started... :)
