"Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal." -Albert Camus

I like this. Camus' thought helps patients when they don't know how to respond to the friendly question, "What's new?" Have you been stymied by this question?

Trump Campaign may trigger your PTSD symptoms and your eating disorder

worried or frightened girlThe Trump Campaign may be may be awakening your PTSD symptoms. It may be triggering your eating disorder.

A large, bullying, arrogant man in a position of wealth and power who feels entitled to experience or own anything he wants is parading through the media blatantly derogating, belittling, humiliating, insulting and sexually molesting women through his words and actions.

On July 13 I received an e-mail  from my friend Anne, subject line, "Hello from Paris."  She is travelling in Europe with her husband  and about to take a small river boat journey through the center of France to Nice. I didn't respond right away. Her post got lost in a mass of e-mails in my inbox.

The next day I joined millions of people throughout the world in shock, horror and grief as Nice got her heart ripped out by a man with a truck and guns.  We were still reeling from the police being attacked and killed in Orlando.  Today, July 17, police were lured to their death by a phony 911 call in Baton Rouge.
