Book Review: When Someone You Know Has Depression  
We all want to help and support the people we care about in our lives — whether they’re friends, family members, or significant others. After all, they do the same for us. When one of those people is dealing with a mood disorder, however, it’s easy to feel like you’re out of your depth. You might be afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing. You may worry about making the situation worse. In her book, When Someone You Know Has Depression: Words to Say and Things to Do, Susan Noonan offers concrete suggestions for caregivers attempting to support loved ones dealing with depression and bipolar disorder. Above all...

The Nature Of Consciousness: Resonance Between Ancient Philosophies And Current Science
What is consciousness? Is it an essentially human characteristic or a fundamental characteristic of the universe? Questions about consciousness have intrigued philosophers and scientists for thousands of years. Neuroscientists, like myself, are asking questions about the essential characteristics of consciousness, and the extent to which it is dependent on activity in the brain. In the laboratory, I have studied consciousness through my research on meditation, and more recently the phenomenon of near-death experiences. Authors of the many ancient philosophical texts of India have also explored the nature of consciousness...

OCD and Depression
When my son Dan’s obsessive-compulsive disorder was severe, he was barely functioning. He isolated himself from his friends, and could barely move from point A to point B. He’d spend hours at a time either sitting in his “safe” chair or just lying on the floor. Eating a morsel was a struggle. Not surprisingly, he was diagnosed with depression. Even on a “good” day, when he was somewhat able to go through all the motions of normal living, he was tormented nonstop by obsessions. Who wouldn’t be depressed living like this? Thankfully, even though he was battling depression, he was still totally invested in bea...

"It's A Scandal" -Daryl Hall on Doctors Denying Chronic Lyme
Growing up a musically-obsessed child in the 80's, Daryl Hall was one of my biggest inspirations. A masterful, inventive songwriter with an ocean of soul, he set me on the path to being an artist, to never waste a word, and to sing because I mean it. With six number ones and five additional top ten hits throughout the 70's and 80's Daryl Hall and John Oates are the number one duo in music history. Still at the top of his game at 69 years old, Daryl has won legions of new fans with his hit MTV Live show Live From Daryl's House. In February of 2015, at my very sickest from chronic Lyme and Bartonella, after it was missed b...

Book Review: What Men Should Know About Women
From William Shakespeare to John Dunn, poetry has a unique ability to tug on the heart strings, stir emotions, convey deeper meanings, and even transport the reader to another time and place. In the case of Erica M. Loberg’s work What Men Should Know About Women, I experienced each of the above; however, the experience was not a positive one and I found myself in a place I never wanted to be as a reader. Loberg’s take on “what men should know about women” is divided into three loose chapters, covering the topics of self, the body, women, and the city. Her foray into examining the concept of self includes estimation...
