I found myself relating to certain feelings within in the book but as the intro states I found it hard to read. It made me more anxious. When I decided not to finish the book I felt happier and more grateful and have been loving my baby ever since! ( )

A wonderfully honest account of what postpartum depression is really like. See www.marrit.info for more about the book. (I have the URL on my desk on a "I'm a Crazy Mama" bumper sticker that Marrit -- a writer buddy -- sent me.) Also, don't miss this interview that ran in the Austin American-Statesman.

Ingman documents the agony of elimination diets and tearful, sleepless nights with the same candor and humor she does the ecstasy of mama's night out and her own invention, the Playgroup Drinking Game.Ingman addresses her own postpartum depression, her feelings of inadequacy, and her self-admittedly ridiculous perception that her infant son truly hates her. With irony, sarcasm, and wit, Ingman paints a portrait of parenthood far unlike the popular image of glowing bliss. She recounts the painful and difficult moments of babyhood with her colicky, difficult child with a mix of humor and anguish that reflects the transformative process of becoming a parent-the compromises, struggles, useless advice, and failed expectations.… (more)
