January 16, 2006 | It's not just Tom Cruise who thinks post-partum
depression is a myth. As Karen writes in:

"I forget when I saw this, but a woman wrote in to Ann Landers saying that she had a young daughter but instead of being happy, she was miserable. Mrs. Landers told her to look into post-partum depression. In response, another reader wrote back a furious response claiming that post-partum depression was a patriarchial myth designed to make woman blame their bodies for a 'natural' resentment of the children who 'stole' their figures and careers. Of course, Ann Lander's flip-flopped and praised the letter-writer for her practical sense and experience."

Heard some awful advice? Don't just sit there— warn others!
