    “…If you read these comments from the bottom up, you’d never think we were having a discussion about PPD. Especially the deeply philosophical–and circular–points of this guy Matt which fail to reverberate with me, probably due to the fact that he’s not talking about women and PPD at all, or the Mother’s Act for that matter…”

    Not circular… It’s a spiral – we may return to the same place, but it looks different, the second time around, because it’s viewed from a slightly different perspective.

    Anyway, if you want something other than circularity, or the semblance thereof, then you would have to have an objective, because if you don’t have a reference point, how will you know whether or not you’re progressing in the right direction? And if you can’t be sure that you’re headed in the right direction, there seems precious little point in moving off the spot.


    PS Unless somebody’s going to reveal that they have experienced what they take to be PPD, then it would be difficult for any of us to discuss it, given that we would have no knowledge of it, and nobody to ask.
