Medication Monday: Paxil

Winter seems to be on its way out, but the Mondays just keep coming, and so do the Medication Mondays, the weekly series that offers a brief, informative introduction to the various mental health medications available on the market. While this is not a substitute for medical advice, it is meant to help you be […]

On Anger

This week’s episode over on my podcast, A Light in The Darkness, focused a lot on anger. And the fact is that while people often think of depression as being mostly about a lack of energy and interest, the fact is it can also manifest as anger. I know I have experienced this during my […]
