  11. Depression Suffering By Robert Baird
    The 'experts' have tried to evaluate me as a sufferer of this but found no such evidence or behavior.

That would definitely be too serious and intense, as I would explain society's role i…

  20. Tuning the Music Therapist By Nick Arrizza, M.D.

The therapist may set out to c…


  21. Moods: Their Causes and How To Change Them By Dr. Mona Spiegel
    What is the difference between feelings and moods? Both words describe our emotions; the difference lies in how long they last. Feelings are transient; they are caused by the situation that you’re in and can change from one moment to the next. On the other hand, moods can last for hours or days at a time. An uncomfortable feeling often goes away by itself, but a “bad mood” may need some effort to change. In this article, therefore, we will focus on moods, their causes, and how to change t…

    It amazes me that 6-10 million Americans have been diagnosed with this isolating disorder. What’s amazing about this is that not much is written about BPD much less talked about.

    What can you say to a parent who loses a child to cancer? Whatever words we offer are inadequate to lessen their sorrow.

" For answers, I look to God's written word. It gives me a glimpse into His personality and thoughts.If God were to telephone and speak to you during times o…
