Thank the lord, I was waiting for an intelligent person to say this. There's nothing bad about setting personal parameters. Nothing. That's her fucking prerogative.

Um, no. It's absolutely rage inducing and you are not disproportionately angry. I'm a psychologist and just as fucking pissed off as you are. I think I may have blacked out from being so mad when I read it the first time.

Ugh. I know exactly what that is, and I feel for you. People can't understand how awful the racing heart feels unless they've experienced it. Just the sinus node tachycardia alone would make me think twice about putting a person under general. It can be done, but not without some very serious consideration. I've seen Read more

I have two things: 1, these people deserve to be shamed. 2, never read comments that Eileen makes, or engage with her. She advocates the dissenting opinion on every article, either for attention or because she's an asshole.

Negligence. That's just fucking unreal. I take my patient's blood pressure before we even start a therapy session (psychologist) and people make fun of me sometimes for being overly cautious, but if I have someone on multiple meds, I gotta have those vitals, no matter how neurotic that is. If someone came in with a BP Read more

Someone put you under general with a pressure of 60/40??? Holy shit. I'm happy to see that you are still alive.

Oh Yeah. I've heard all about the placenta printing. I had a patient a while ago sipping placenta smoothie out of a regular cup, like the ones that Starbucks uses for iced drinks. I knew all about it but said not one word. I don't.... I can't comment to them about it, really. If I say something disapproving, then I'm Read more

This never fails to make me laugh until I choke. He goes into full fight or flight mode.

In my experience, there are many, many parents for whom the "well planned" part would be a major stumbling block. Plenty of good intentions, but lacking in forethought.

Lol. There was no racial connotation in what you wrote at all. Specifically when you referred to them as back of house employees. You didn't say 'dishwashers' or anything that could possibly be misconstrued. I don't know how people come up with this shit.

They certainly could. If someone has always believed in a natural cure for everything (your crunchy home birth moms, for example) and then they achieve a relief of depression symptoms while consuming their placenta, they have that moment of realization that confirms what they thought all along. Because their Read more

Hey now, I was just agreeing with you in response to the doula baby killer troll. I think you're misunderstanding me.. I don't believe in any placenta eating benefits. Of course it's a placebo effect. I was just saying that I don't see the harm if a patient of mine is taking actual prescribed meds as directed and Read more

Again, I didn't say that there are benefits. I said I have had patients who THINK there are. If they are responding well to actual treatment and following treatment rules, I don't care if they are taking placenta pills. It's the same with the diet fads that promise people better mental health. I can tell a patient Read more

Alcohol and Beverage Control agents? Well, mercy me! It must be difficult living up to the standards of such an important title. I'm sure they try their very best, though.

I'm pretty sure I felt the same reaction you did to: baby killing doulas. Like.... what?

I read my comment again, and I can see the confusion. To be clear, I meant that women being treated with medication and therapy have had the placenta pills made on their own. It's something that I have noticed. I didn't want to come out and say that there are no benefits from placenta consumption, at the risk of Read more

What? I don't give them that, and that's not what I said. I said patients doing it on their own, and them swearing by it. Yes, I think that they are responding favorable to medication and therapy. But if they think that the placenta pills are doing it, in a placebo way, I don't see the harm. If a patient is following Read more

I have patients who have responded quite favorably to placenta pills during the course of treatment for postpartum depression and psychosis. Most of them are just regular women who gave birth in the hospital without the services of a doula, not really hippies, and I live in a large city. It's obviously not something I Read more
