New Parents: my-discourse-blog: ryrythescienceguy: Children being naturally exposed to a variety of germs from a very young age (from dirt, pets, playplaces, sandboxes, other kids, etc) is actually really good for the immune system and can even prevent the development of allergies. The reason food allergies are so common these days is precisely because parents are avoiding exposing their kids to possible trigger foods and not letting them get dirty (also the overuse of antibacterial soaps/hand santitizers and antibiotics!). Source: grew up on a farm, played in the dirt and with germy animals and germy siblings/cousins/friends all the time, and very rarely took antibiotics… today I’m 24, have zero allergies, and a great immune system (even my little sister is the same, and she wasn’t vaccinated until she was a teenager). This is also why oldest siblings and only children tend to have more allergies in my anecdotal experience; the parents often get overprepared and don’t let their kid get exposed to ANY germs/allergens—by the time other children come along the parents are jaded enough to not care about it as much, and thus the kids afterwards are exposed to more germs from birth! If this sounds weird and backwards, it’s because for a long time doctors used to teach the exact opposite. Keep your child clean and away from germs and potenial allergy triggers. Until they saw the long-term side effects of this and are now starting to tell new parents how to do it better. NOTE: I AM EXTREMELY PRO-VAX! DO NOT MISTAKE THIS COMMENT AS ANTI-VAX. VACCINATE YOUR FUCKING CHILDREN AND EXPOSE THEM TO GERMS IN A CONTROLLED WAY. THE HUMAN IMMUNE SYSTEM IS CAPABLE OF MANY THINGS BUT IT’S NOT A MIRACLE WORKER AND IT NEEDS HELP!!! Can confirm this is true. I’ve studied food science for 5 years and have 3 qualifications in food safety.

New Parents: When people say these books are children's books, as if to demean them, I balk. These books dealt with themes that adults do not fully understand or wish to. It dealt with racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, prejudice, and general ignorance. These books taught us that it doesn't matter how you were raised, but at you get to choose to be kind, loyal, brave, and true. They taught us to be strong u nder the pressures of this world and to hold fast to what we know to be right. These books taught me so much, they changed me as a person. So just ause they're set against a fantastical backdrop with young protagonists does not mean that their value is any less real This First book Starts with the double murder of a pair of twenty-one year olds who e much missed and leaving their baby son a war orphan abusive conditions that would give Cinderella the horrors. Dealing with peers and teachers who are bulies. The fickleness of fame (from the darling of Gryffindor to the outcast.) The idea that there are things worth fighting and dying for, spoken by the child protagonist. Three children promptly acting on that willingness to sacrifice their lives, and two of them getting injured doing so Second book. The equivalent of racism with the pro-pureblood attitude by an eleven year old girl being groomed and then used by a charming, handsome older male. The imbalance of power and resultant abuse inherent in slavery. Fraud perpetuated by stealing something very intimate. Plot driven hird book: The equivalent of ableism with a decent, kind and competant adult being considered less than human because he has an illness that adversely affects his behaviour at certain times. A justice system that is the opposite of just. Promises of removing an abused child from the abusive environment can't always be kept. The innocent suffer while the guilty thrive. Fouth book: More fickleness of fame. The privileged mistreating and undermining the underprivileged because they can. A master punishing a slave for his own misjudgment, and the slave blaming herself. A sports tournament which involves mortal risk being cheered by spectators. A wonderful young man being murdered y because he was in the way. A young boy being tortured, humilated and nearly murdered. Fifth book: PTSD in the teenage protagonist. Severe depression in the protagonist's godfather, triggered by inherited mental health issues and being forced to stay in a house where abuse occured. A bigoted tyrant who lives to crush everyone under her heel, torturing a teenager for telling the truth in the name of the government (and trying to suck his soul out too). The discovery that your idols can feet of clay after all. An effort to save the life of someone dear and precious actually costing that very same life. The loss of a father-figure and the resultant guilt Sixth book: The idea that a soul can be broken beyond repair. Drugs with the potential for date rape are shown as having achieved exactly that in at least one case, resulting in a pregnancy.

 government (and trying to suck his soul out too). The discovery that your idols can
 feet of clay after all. An effort to save the life of someone dear and precious
 actually costing that very same life. The loss of a father-figure and the resultant
 guilt
 Sixth book: The idea that a soul can be broken beyond repair. Drugs with the
 potential for date rape are shown as having achieved exactly that in at least one
 case, resulting in a pregnancy. Well-meaning chauvinism trying to control the lo
 life of a young woman. Internalised prejuidce resulting in refusing the one you love
 out of lack of love but out of fear of tainting them. The mortality of those that
 seem powerful and larger than life
 Seventh book Bad situations can get worse, to the point where even the
 end up suffering and afraid. More internalised prejudice and feaf hysterical terror of
 ting those you love. Self-sacrifice and the loss of loved ones, EVERYWHE
 se who are bitter are often so with a reason. The necessity of defeating yo
 inner demons, even though it's never as cool as it sounds. Don't underestimate
 those that are enslaved. Other people's culture isn't always like your own. Things
 often come full circle (war ending with the death of a dearly-loved pair of new
 parents and their orphaned baby son living with his dead mother's blood relative
 instead of his young godfather). Even if all is well' the world is still imperfect,
 because it's full of us brilliant imperfect humans.

New Parents: A mother-of-two suffering from postpartum depression has posed for a powerful photoshoot featuring two vastly different parenting scenarios to show what it is really like to live with the mood disorder Kathy DiVincenzo with Paul DiVincenzo and Danielle Fantis May 2 at 7-27am- Chances are, you're feeling pretty uncomfortable right now (trust me I am too). I'm going to challenge you to push past the discomfort soclety has placed on postpartum mental illness and hear me out May has been declared Postpartum Depression Awareness Month and as someone with diagnosed postpartum depression, anxiety, and OCD I feel like it's time to show you what that can really look like, not just the side of me that's Facebook worthy The truth is, both of these pictures represent my life depending on the day. I would only ever comfortably share one of these realities though and that's the problem. The only thing more exhausting than having these conditions is pretending daily that I don't. I work twice as hard to hide this reality from you because I'm afraid to make you uncomfortable. I'm afraid you'll think I'm weak, crazy, a terrible mother, or the other million things my mind convinces me of and I know Im not alone in those thoughts. We need to stop assuming that the postpartum period is always euphoric, because for 1 in 7 it's not. We need to start asking new parents how they're doing in a deeper way than the normal, "so how are you doing? that triggers the knee jerk, "everything's greatl" response. We need to learn the signs, symptoms, risk factors, and support plans for postpartum conditions. We need to break the stigma and BEndTheSilence by sharing our stories and letting others know theyre not alone. If you have had a postpartum mood disorder please share your story below, or simply postto show you can relate. Let's show athers that they don't have to suffer in silence n case no one has told you, you're doing an amazing job. You are loved and you are worthy. You're nat alone. Information to local and national support will be in the comment section. I know how unbel ievably hard it is to reach out, but I promise you it is worth it. YOU'RE worth it Thank you to my close friend Danielle from Danielle Fantis Photography, a fellow mom that struggled with ppd, for capturing these images for me and encouraging me to share them with you. She encouraged other women who have dealt with postpartum depression to share their stories. Many did Lauren Fisher So very true and such a serious topic that needs to be out in the open more! I struggled with both postpartum depression and anxiety. I'm lucky to have a great support system of family, friends and doctors that helped me through it.
