Returning to Work from Maternity Leave and Depression at One Year Post Partum.

Currently I’m working through a hard season.  I'm in a disease flare-up (severe exhaustion and pain) and a depressive episode.  The two intermingle and make it a very difficult time mentally, emotionally and physically. The gravitational pull is hard to overcome and this is where self-care checklists feel almost impossible to accomplish. You're just in… Continue reading Returning to Work from Maternity Leave and Depression at One Year Post Partum.

How to Have a Great Maternity Leave: Harness the Great World of Apps

From a very young age I've been quite comfortable around technology.  In fact, some of my earliest memories were helping my parents package up mid 1980s computer technology.  Floppy disks (yes those strange things you inserted into slots in the computer hard drive) and dongles (no not a sex toy!)
