Adverse Childhood Experiences & Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
Repeated adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) can change the body, brain, nervous system and ultimately an entire life. You may be incredibly resilient. The person with an easier life and more harmonious childhood may appear more resilient, but they have not been tested in the same ways. You may be an incredibly resourceful person — likewise, life has probably helped you hone these skills. You may be highly intelligent, empathic, kind or creative. You may feel very connected to your spiritual self. You may be navigating life from your heart and your smarts and yet wonder it’s not coming together for you. Trauma...

Caring for Yourself When Caregiving
The TV ads for a new dementia drug make it look so easy. “He’s been my everything, so now I’m his.” Everyone is smiling. The caregiver bestows a loving kiss. The person being cared for looks content. The message? “Take this pill and everyone’s pain and stress will evaporate.” I wish. However much we love someone who is chronically ill or suffering from dementia; however grateful we are for the years of love and companionship; however much we want to be there — “there” is a very difficult place to be. Most of us can manage a few days of emergency but when we know the emergency...

Having Both Depression And Type 2 Diabetes Increases Dementia Risk
By: Agata Blaszczak-Boxe Published: April 15, 2015 12:14pm ET on LiveScience.

Stimulating Brain Waves May Boost Creativity And Ease Depression
The secret to stimulating creativity may be to literally stimulate the brain. In a new study, scientists at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill were able to measurably increase creativity by altering electrical activity in the brain -- a finding that may have significant implications for the treatment of depression. The researchers stimulated the brains of 20 healthy individuals with a low dose of electric currents, transmitted safely and non-invasively through electrodes attached to the scalp. Afterward, the participants performed an average of 7.4 percent better on a test of creative thinking. The elect...

Let's Stamp Out Stigma
CONCLUSION: To scapegoat and stigmatize people with psychological problems may discourage them from seeking treatment and result in a backlash including the occurrence of an increased incidence of violent episodes. As a nation, we benefit from increasing access to psychological/psychiatric care, as well as propagating the principles of good-enough parenting, which can help: 1. Develop a healthy sense of self-esteem 2. Gain respect for human life 3. Acquire ways to deal with disappointment, frustration, loss and other grievances (which obviate the desire to act destructively). ______________________ Need help? In...

Overcoming OCD: A Journey to Recovery
My husband often tells me I have obsessive-compulsive disorder: Sometimes when I leave the house I check that I have locked the door, often going back two, three, even four times to ensure that the deadbolt is secure. I also do this with the oven, the stove, and my curling iron. Although rationally I know I have turned them off or locked them, my compulsion to relieve my anxiety outweighs my rational mind. (Luckily, I don’t do it every time I leave the house.) This is how we typically think of OCD: a series of checking, or the constant washing of hands. But, as Janet Singer and Seth Gillihan write in Overcoming OCD...
