This week, I'm exhausted but I wanted to talk about "doing your best." I'm not trying to convince you to do more and measure up to some impossible standard. I'm trying to explain that "doing your best" is personal, constantly changing, and all you need to do on any given day. maybe your best today is getting out of bed and taking care of your baby. That's enough. Don't push yourself to do more than you can do until you are ready, and stop comparing yourself to everyone else. For more information about the show, head over to PPDadventures.com or email Courtney@PPDadventures.com. The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com. Thanks for listening and have a great week.

I am back from my summer break, so this week, I'm just catching everyone up on the past few months. I share an update on my slow and steady weaning off of medications and talk about my new interest in learning about menopause. I'm only 38 but I refuse to be blindsided by the next big transition in my life as a woman. Email Courtney@PPDadventures.com if you would like to share your story on a future episode. The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com. Thanks for listening and have a great week.

In episode 45, Vivianne shared her adventures with maternal mental illness. Since her interview, her diagnosis and medications have been changed. Her psychiatrist now thinks she might have bipolar disorder. In this mini-sode, I read an update from Vivianne, which I will post in the show notes at PPDadventures.com. Thank you, Vivianne, for sharing so much of your story with our listeners!

This week, Vivianne shares her adventures with maternal mood disorders. At the time of her interview, it was still unclear what her diagnosis was. Her psychiatrist thought she might be experiencing bipolar II onset. After we talked, she was diagnosed with untreated postpartum depression and ADHD. It never ceases to amaze me how similar but different our stories are. Thank you, Vivianne, for sharing your story! Show notes will be available at PPDadventures.com. If you would like to share your story on a future episode, or if you just want to say hello, email me at Courtney@PPDadventures.com. The intro music is "Cute" from Bensound.com.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
