the female brain.



let me tell you why i love my mother.

the last time she came to visit, she brought me this book and told me to read it, except for the sex chapter. so i read that chapter first. 

let me tell you, this book was SO interesting. even more interesting were the lines in the book that i came across every now and then that my mom had whited out. only, i was so curious about what would have been so bad for her to cover up, that i would hold the pages up to the light so i could see what was under the white out. that probably defeated the purpose. sorry mom.

but back to the book. it was written by a neuropsychiatrist who explains the way womens' brains are wired and operate - from the birth of the female brain, to the mommy brain, to the mature female brain.  the book is a combination of findings from various articles and books, along with accounts of patients from her clinic and explains what is occurring in the female brain during each phase of her life.

read it. you will love it.
and it will make you feel a lot less crazy.


4 left some love.:

Hahaha I'm pretty sure I've done that before. Blessed mothers. If they REALLY didn't want us to read it, they'd have used permanent marker and just dealt with the missing sentence on the next page.
