Older Adults: Alcohol and Drug Issues

older adults alcoholand drug issues
Talking with your older loved one about his/her use of alcohol and/or drugs may be difficult for some. Many people become defensive when asked about their alcohol or drug use, and often do not tell the truth. This is especially true for someone who has been approached by people about drinking in the past. Here are some guidelines to help you address these issues in a way that is more likely to be heard as concern for their well being, rather than a desire to control them. [More]

Navigating Online Dating

navigating online dating
What makes online dating so appealing? Well, firstly, it’s EASY! You don’t need to dress up, drive anywhere, or put much physical effort into it. And the other appeal is that it actually works.

Listen Up! For the Good of Your Relationship

8. April 2014 05:55 by Casey Truffo | Comments

listen up forthe goodof your relationship
Give your partner a little time and breathing room if they’re struggling to communicate their thoughts, concerns or needs - especially if the topic is emotional or directly concerns your relationship. If you feel you are being attacked by an aggressive tone and language, say so (calmly) —but try to refrain from retaliating with angry retorts of your own. Likewise, if you feel like he or she is bringing up ancient history that is not germane to the topic at hand, say that too. However, if you can try to steer the conversation back to a more productive back-and-forth, do so. [More]

Are You an Emotional Eater?

are youan emotional eater
We all emotionally eat some of the time. Eating emotionally is a normal part of life. At weddings, celebrating birthdays, or during holidays we may eat when we're not really hungry. When food becomes the primary coping strategy, emotional eating can get out of control.

Adult ADHD: The Journey from Childhood to Adulthood

6. April 2014 05:55 by LuAnn Pierce | Comments

adult adhd the journeyfrom childhoodto adulthood
Many of the symptoms that seemed so problematic in childhood (school and peer relations) are easier to manage (for some). But, with the advent of adulthood comes new responsibilities, physical changes and competing expectations. This often requires new skills and abilities that are not in our repertoire. It is during the initial transition to adulthood that many young people with ADHD get lost on their journey. [More]

Positive Ways to Use Social Media to Connect to your Child's World

positive waysto use social mediato connecttoyour childs world
While there are many precautions that should be considered when it comes to children/teens and social media, we have come to a time when facing it with a positive attitude may be the key to helping children use these mediums appropriately. Some curiosity, exploration and healthy discussion with your children can go a long way. So, the next time you see your child giggling at something on their phone, engage them in a conversation. Learn their language so you can speak their language. [More]

does halle berry havea split personality second picture
DID is a rare mental illness that results most often from early trauma, such as incest, repeated child abuse or sexual assault. People with DID develop distinct personalities referred to as ‘alters’. A person with DID may have as many as 100 or as few as 2 different alters. The alters usually differ greatly; some may be very young and vulnerable (a victim personality), while others may be aggressive or violent (a protector personality). [More]

Taking back control of chronic pain through social media

takingbackcontrolofchronicpainthroughsocialmedia
Chronic pain patients can and often do feel like they have no control in their lives. We have to rely on doctors, medication, tests and treatments that aren't very effective. We have to rely on family and friends who don't understand to help care for us. We have to fight with insurance companies and social assistance for disability benefits.

Caring for Yourself When Burned Out in Your Career

2. April 2014 05:55 by Rachel Eddins | Comments

caringfor yourself when burned outin your career
When we’re very stressed out, burned out and overwhelmed we are unable to see the forest through the trees. It’s common to be thinking, “I need a break, I need to go on a vacation, or I just need to sleep. I can’t possibly imagine what to do next in my career, but I want a career change!” When you’re burned out or exhausted it is very difficult to see objectively what changes need to be made to have a more satisfying career.

Dating After Divorce

dating after divorce
No matter how long a divorce has been in the making, the idea of actually dating again is going to feel a bit surreal, at least in the beginning. It’s been years or maybe decades since you’ve socialized romantically with anyone other than your ex; chances are, you never expected to do so again. The first order of business is simply to take your time. Divorce is an enormous adjustment, almost akin to mourning the death of a loved one. [More]
