The Ladies

aka Women rethinking their lives

As a feminist therapist and nursing professor, I had the privilege  of hearing about and observing the kinds of choices other women have made that, from a distance, may appear absurd. Unfortunately, some of my friends have noticed that each of the "ladies" appears to reflect some aspect of my own personality or life experience or issue about which I feel strongly.

Sometimes, when confronted by others about some of the incredibly questionable decisions I have made in my own life, I can only reply "well, it made sense at the time."
