OK, I'm sure we've all heard things from doctors / counselors in the past that are just off the wall. I wondered if we could share them for a laugh?
I went to a counselor after birth of first daughter on the advice of my ob/gyn. She was a total nut, and told me (after talking to me for about 15 minutes) that I wasn't suffering from "post partum depression", but rather a "soul death" because I wasn't making time to be creative enough anymore. She told me that she would like, not to send me to a ppd support group, but to a group of her clients that were retired women who were, in her opinion, going through the same things I was - trying to find themselves after a life change. I was like, "Hey, before the baby I'm fine. FINE. After the baby I'm not fine anymore. NOT.OK.ANYMORE. I seriously doubt that finding a hobby is going to give me the will to live!!!!"
I never went back. Called my doctor, told him this woman was completely off her rocker, and perhaps it was HER that needed a counselor!
