Midlife stress may raise women's dementia risk
Conclusion Overall, this study suggests an association between reported stressors, distress and dementia later in life among a group of women living in Sweden. It does not provide proof that stress occurring in mid-life leads to dementia. The study has some strengths, including that the sample was reportedly representative of the population, and that women were followed for a long period of time (38 years). Also valid diagnostic criteria were used to diagnose dementia subtypes. Despite these strengths, there remain several limitations of the study, some of which are reported by the authors. These include: Stress and di...

OCD: Getting the Right Treatment Can be a Challenge
Over the last few years I’ve connected with a lot of people who have obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Most of these OCD sufferers have some kind of story to tell about their early experiences reaching out for help. And they’re usually not positive ones. They are accounts of misdiagnosis, no diagnosis, or mistreatment. They are tales of being told by family they are fine, or they must be exaggerating. They are advised to just “suck it up” or at the very least relax. If they are lucky enough to receive a proper diagnosis early on, they are often either just given medication with no offer of addit...
