Alcoholics who quit completely do better than those who dabble. I'm not surprised | David Ferguson
I tried, and failed, repeatedly to control my intake of intoxicating substances. Eventually I decided total sobriety was the only wayIn my last week of using drugs in the summer of 2005, I had a moment of clarity during a binge that combined codeine cough syrup, Ativan pills and ground-up Oxycontin that I was snorting. I was stumbling around the room – I was always a mess of bruises from head to foot in those days – trying to decide whether or not to take all the rest of the Ativan in the bottle when it occurred to me to ask myself, “Why is it that I can never get high enough?

By Brandon R.

After reading my essay written this past winter entitled The Precarious Space Between Chemotherapy and Work, a friend and supporter of mine who is of my parent's generation, and whose wife was battling a third occurrence of cancer at that time, empathetically, yet cautiously, wrote to me expressing concern. He had noticed a "thread of anger" in my writing. He professed amazement at "how many judgments and putdowns I could fit into one blog." He admitted to having to step away from my blog as he and his wife fought her battle. And he repeated an axiom now all too familiar to me--his wife's struggles were...

I don't automatically recognize the date as being significant anymore. I took a moment when I saw the message from her to reflect. I thought about how different my life is now than it was before my diagnosis. Before my diagnosis I was sure that I had to do everything myself. I knew that people were unreliable; if I trusted anyone I was sure I would be let down. Cancer forced me to re-examine this principle. First of all, hospitals don't let patients go to chemo...

Treating status epilepticus through direct brain stimulation
Status epilepticus, a state of prolonged seizures, is a life-threatening medical emergency. The average mortality rate is 20 percent, and people who survive sustain lasting neurologic damage. Aborting the seizures is of the essence, but about 30 to 40 percent of patients don’t respond to lorazepam, the first-line drug usually given, and the drug itself can cause respiratory depression. A study in rat model of status epilepticus, led by Alexander Rotenberg, MD, PhD, of Boston Children’s Hospital’sDepartment of Neurology, is the first to test an emerging approach known as transcranial direct-current stimul...

Over the years, I’ve seen an increasing number of patients at my wellness clinic suffering from depression – many without even knowing it. This terrible rise is a reflection of a growing epidemic of depression that’s happening all over the Western world. Depression is often hard to diagnose, because the individual symptoms often point to so many other things. Psychiatrists often talk about chemical imbalances in the brain – as if they really know what the right balance should be. They don’t. In fact, they’re guessing. And it’s hard to calculate the very real impact of spending ever...

Medication and Anxiety
Medication can be an effective approach for managing various types of anxiety such as panic, hyperarousal, and constant worry. However, contrary to popular belief and subtle messages from pharmaceutical companies, medication is far from a cure. In fact, when it comes to “cures” for most psychiatric conditions, the data tends to support psychotherapy. For example, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) responds very well to psychotherapy, whereas the positive effects of medication are somewhat limited. The same is true for panic disorder. Although certain types of medication are very good at relieving panic sympt...
