Something to look forward to...

Not only do current fathers warn me about the perils of fatherhood (my next door neighbor today: "get your sleep in now!"), Yahoo! is now on my case. Apparently, according to them, I have a 10% chance of getting postpartum depression.

From last Monday's HealthDay News:

"Almost as many new fathers as mothers suffer depression after the birth of a child, a new study shows. About 14 percent of mothers and 10 percent of fathers showed signs of moderate or severe postpartum depression, according to the study, which followed more than 5,000 members of two-parent families."

If I had a team of researchers following me, I'd be depressed, too.
