  8. It Ain't Easy Being Brave By Marsha Jordan
    A zoo attendant entered a lion cage carrying only a broom. He casually swept with no concern for the wild animal. He even poked the big cat with his broom. The lion hissed at him and moved to another corner of the enclosure. An onlooker remarked "You certainly are brave." The sweeping man chuckled and said, "I ain't brave, that old cat ain't got no teeth."In situations where there's not much danger, bravery comes easily. However, most of us face some very scary stuff.

  15. Turn Depression into Joy By Ann Stewart
    Depression is the most prevalent disease of our time. Under the guise of informing the public, both the medical profession and the media are constantly "warning" us of the dangers and probabilities of the disease most likely to terminate us.

Do I have a magic pill that will make all the bad go away? No. But, there are ways to help us stay out of de…

  18. Surviving the Storms of Life By Mary Gardner
    August in Florida has a daily ritual that Floridians take with a grain of salt. It’s the daily storms that pass by and that are filled with more electricity than in a 4th of July fire works display. It’s no wonder they call Florida the “Lightening Capital of the World”. Because rain clouds can be literally feet away from you and dump a huge storm on the people across the street and meanwhile your side of the street remains dry. It just depends on where you are located at the moment to the degr…

  20. Talking About Depression By S. A. Baker
    In many ways, our society has allowed many people to believe that they can not communicate their feelings to others. Sometimes, we think that no one will understand. We think that what we are feeling is simply not important, not validated, or just wrong. If it was any of these things, we wouldn’t feel this way. These feelings can be symptoms of depression.

  21. Are You Someone's Puppet? Four Ways People Manipulate Others By David Bruce Jr.
    With the current interest in mental health topics, a mental health language has emerged with words such as manipulation, boundaries, limits, rescuing, dependence, and codependence. Many people are unclear what these words mean when applied to relationships.

Webster’s New World Dictionary defines manipulation as:“managing or controlling artfully or by shrewd use of i…

  23. The Expression-Repression-Depression-Connection By Ken Donaldson
    With all these rhymes I was tempted to write a poem (and I may still...stay tuned for the sequel!!) about this topic. However, I decided I would just be straight-forward with these dynamics, seeing how critically valuable they are in our day-to-day lives.We have a choice we make many times during the course of a day: Express it or repress it.In other words, we either find a way to release our expression, which may be referred to as “emotional discharge”, or we “stuff it”, which is synonymous w…

Depression, left untreated, can be a disabling condition.Andropause depression is due to dropping levels of testosterone.…


  25. Antidepressants: Control or Cure? By Chris Green
    What’s curious is that most of them will be on these drugs for life. Equally curious is that over seventy percent of people who stop taking them, for any length of time, will relapse into another painful episode of their illness.Something’s rotten in Denmark. Because if these drugs are as effective as their manufacturers claim, then sufferers should be cured of their illness. Clearly, this isn’t happening.Why? I mean, if these drugs are so good, why don’t they cure stress, anxiety and depressi…
