About A Month Ago . . .

Written by Gena P.
About a month ago, someone very close to me received a phone call from a non-profit organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. My heart sank. Though this foundation is wonderful in its doings, I was not quite prepared. I found myself asking myself, “Is she really this sick?” I know she is, but no one ever wants to think the worse. This group of people wanted to grant “Mickey” a wish. It could be something she wanted or would like to do before things got worse…

Making Anger Productive

Written by Lori R.
When I broke my favorite Miami Dolphins glass that belonged to my brother while putting it into the dishwasher, I was angry with myself. It was a mild anger, though… more on the disappointed side. When someone is following me too closely on the road and then passes me in a fury in a no passing zone, I am immediately angry, or at least extremely irritated. What happens when you feel full-fledged anger; anger that is personal and emotionally fueled by hurt or betrayal? What we choose to do with…

The Stigma of “Treatment”

Written by Lori R.
When you say “treatment center” there is such a stigma attached. What will my family and friends think? Will my employer ever look at me the same? Will I get fired? Everyone will know there is something “wrong” with me. The truth is that everything that is “right” about you just needs to be strengthened in a process called recovery. You can receive “treatment” anywhere, but for true recovery, every aspect of your being must be addressed. I used to be hesitant to mention that I attended grief counseling or…

Immerse Yourself in a Good Book

Written by Administrator
When I was little I used to get caught staying up past my bedtime. I wasn’t the typical child playing or making noise or jumping on the bed. My mother would find me lying on the floor beneath my desk, reading a book by the shine of my nightlight. How can you scold a child for READING?? She would say “Ten more minutes,” or “Finish that chapter,” because she understood. Reading has always been a love for me and its purposes really haven’t changed through the years. I read to…

The Many Shades of Depression

Written by Lori R.
The Fifty Shades movie is all the rage because of the sexual content in the story line but far more interesting to me is the psyche of the main character. There are allusions toward his upbringing and the mental distress he suffered that caused him to develop unconventional relationships. Skip to the scenes that speak of his childhood, his traumas, his unbearable secrets! As a psych major and compassionate person, I want to “figure him out” and “fix him,” not be entertained by his fantasy world. Outside of fiction, in…

Emotional Sobriety

Written by Yolanda F.
Sunday night, along with millions of other people, I watched the 2015 Oscars. The host, in case you didn’t already know, was Neil Patrick Harris who played a character known as Dr. Doogie Howser on TV from 1989 to 1993. Like many actors, Harris has a long list of personalities he’s stepped into like second skins. When I tuned in an hour late and I saw him, I thought to myself, “Oh, look! Doogie Howser!” It made me think about how after all these years I would still associate him…
