According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, hope is: “a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen,” “a feeling of trust,”  “want something to happen or be the case.” When used to describe the sense of desire for recovery regarding mental health, it carries with it, the belief that some positive outcome can ensue, that things can improve and that symptoms can abate. When a person succumbs to the illness, often it is because he or she has relinquished the possibility of healing. This month the suicides of designer Kate Spade and chef Anthony Bourdain had many quest...

Anxiety can stymie our lives in so many ways. Whether it’s a debilitating panic attack, constant worry or an all pervading fear, anxiety is often an unwanted companion that seemingly only wants the worst for us. However with the right help, guidance and support, there are a variety of techniques that can help. Of course it’s important to note that we’re all different, and what works for one person may not be as effective on another, but from personal experience, my own road to recovery led me, thankfully, to yoga therapy. After years of struggling with depression and anxiety, I moved to to South East Asia...

Excessive cell phone use is a trend that is growing every day. We are consumed with life behind the screen. But why? Because often, in the digital world, flowers are blooming and the sun is always shining. Many of us seek and gain validation from likes and comments on photos or ideas we post online, and naturally, we crave more of that every day. But when does this craving become obsessive and possibly an addiction? Many individuals form a smartphone addiction because they can’t live without the acceptance and information they have access to on their devices. We should avoid getting trapped in the infatuation of wha...

We studied the effect of chronic injections of serotonin reuptake inhibitor fluoxetine to rats during pregnancy on physiological and behavioral characteristics of female offspring during the prepubertal period. Fluoxetine reduced body weight in newborn females, but this parameter was restored to normal values by the age of 25 days. Fluoxetine also increased animal anxiety, but did not change the level of depressive behavior and cognitive capacities. It was shown that chronic injections of physiological solution to pregnant female enhanced nociceptive responses in the offspring during the prepubertal period, while fluoxetin...

Therefore, we aimed to longitudinally examine whether older age ...

Last week I wrote about my approach to assessing sleep problems in those with persistent pain. As an ex-insomniac I’ve spent a while learning about sleep so I can understand what’s going on, and why sleep can be such a problem. In this week’s post I want to dig a little deeper into what’s going on with poor sleep, as well as some of the unique features of sleep in people experiencing persistent pain. Having reviewed the five main areas that are fundamental (and can/should be assessed by anyone working with people who experience persistent pain), the next area I want to look at with people is mood. T...
