So You Didn't Win the Lottery…Now What?

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.



Now that all the mega-lottery winners have stepped forward, the overwhelming odds are you didn't win. Americans spent $1.5 billion in their quest to win the jackpot, fantasizing about how they would happily spend the $656 million to be paid out to the winner. As it happened, there were three winning tickets so the final after-tax take home for each will be about $100 million. Still, nothing to sneeze at.



Are you…

COULD WE SUM UP LIFE THIS WAY?

Today, while driving, I had an ephiphany of sorts. I heard something speak into my head: "Do my best with where I'm at." As I considered that, I started to translate it...

In depression? Do our best with where we're at.  In unemployment? Do our best with where we're at.  In mourning? Do our best with where we're at.  In celebration…

DRINKING IN THE DARK WITH THE LIGHT ON





Believe it or not, this title came to me as I was trying to fall asleep last night. It stuck with me all day. Weird. Well, here we are. I still have this title gnawing at me. So bear with me as I prayerfully try to flush it out...

There was a…

Addiction Recovery With Exercise

Whether you are addicted to alcohol, street drugs, prescription drugs, gambling, food, or nicotine, the neurological pattern that develops is the same. The reward center in your brain is underactive, and it takes more in life to tell that part of your brain that you're having a good time. Nothing but the addiction seems to satisfy that reward center, and the brain is tricked into thinking that the addiction is necessary for survival.



Quick bursts of exercise at 70-80% of one's… Continue

Facebook Rehab 6: The Epilogue by "Samantha Greene"

Facebook Rehab 6: The Epilogue

By “Samantha Greene”







Michael Corleone and I have something in common besides a love for Diane Keaton: “Just when I thought I was out….they pull me back in.” Facebook is my Mafia godfather, forcing me to prostrate myself and kiss his ring daily in the form of status updates and socializing with people tens and a hundreds and thousands of miles away.



I made it all of twelve hours off Facebook. To my chagrin and secret pleasure,… Continue

Facebook Rehab 5: The Group Therapy App

By “Samantha Greene”



Clearly, I hit a bump in the road last night, and it bounced me right off the wagon and flat on my ass. It was more than just a slip - I was glued to Facebook until the wee hours of the night. Besides posting umpteen Status Updates, I took the following quizzes: What is Your NPR Personality? The Kitchen Gadget Quiz, What Kind of Mask Do You Wear?, When Will You Die? (but I didn’t look at the answer because I got… Continue

Addiction and Mental Health Issues

When my son Michael required inpatient or residential treatment for addictions and bipolar disorder, I carefully discovered the treatment approaches of available facilities.



Early in our years-long journey I learned that some treatment philosophies denied the existence of biologically-based mental illness. Others eschewed drugs of any sort, regardless of who prescribed them and why. And still others functioned under the assumption… Continue

Where Weed Can Lead

I knew in my gut that my son Michael’s pot smoking was both symptomatic and causal regarding his mental health. We talked time and again about the damage he could be inflicting on his brain and about his doctor’s inability to treat his bipolar disorder correctly when he continued to use.



Deaf ears. No need to say more. But we have to get the word out. We have to share the facts. And the facts are now indisputable.



Marijuana, in addition to being a gateway drug (it is for… Continue

I feel bloated with dooce.

I'm an avid dooce reader,even though I just found her recently- like a month ago. Lately, she seems to be writing less than usual and when you get hooked on a blog, you kind of forget it's a real person writing about their daily life. They become like an online book and when you can't read what happens next, you can get frustrated. So, last night I decided to use the wayback internet machine to read as far back as the archives would let me to really get my fill of the dooce life from the… Continue
