Does talking about Suicide encourage Suicide?

I'm a firm believer that in order to fully understand the cause of something we must ask as many questions as possible. Being afraid of the answer is not going to get rid of the problem much less solve it.

#growingupwithanxiety : More Than a Trending Hashtag

#growingupwithanxiety _More Than a Trending Hashtag

Every time I log into Twitter, the first thing I do is check the Trends.  Sometimes I click through a few of them, often times I don’t, but today there is one that really hits home for me.  That one is #growingupwithanxiety.

I was diagnosed with social anxiety disorder and generalized anxiety disorder soon after my second child was born and my marriage to my (now ex-)husband was ending.  Up until I sought out a therapist, I really believed that everything I had…

Being more than Mrs. Mommy

I have two t-shirts that I thought I had specially made just for fun. The first one was shortly before my wedding. I had it made to say "Mrs. XXXXX" (but instead of the Xs, it was my husband's name). The second was right after my son was born and it says XXXXXX's Mom (but instead of the Xs, it has my son's name).…

Driving Anxiety 101 – Thirteen years in the making.

First Step: Experience a traumatic event in which you feel you have no control.

When I turned thirty, my world shrunk drastically. I took a road trip with my three year old from North Florida to the Appalachian mountains in my 15 year old crappy Toyota van to visit another single mom friend. We never made it to the mountains. Instead, the van’s electrical…

The Anxiety of Having Too Much

Having too much stuff is a growing epidemic in our modern world.  It is  commonplace have houses, garages, attics, basements, and storage sheds bursting at the seams.  Besides the enormous financial effects of owning all these things, what is it doing to our health?

I recently came across the book "Life At Home In The Twenty-First Century", which was the end result of a nine-year project by researchers at UCLA.  This book examines what is really in our homes,…

How Does A "Neat Freak" Deal With A Bathroom Remodel?

Ok.

Ooooo Kay.

In two days the bathroom remodel (that has been desperately needed for over 10 years) begins in full force.  Our cast iron tub will be demolished with a sledgehammer, our old parquet floor will be torn up, cracked sink thrown in the dumpster and the walls will come a tumblin' down.  I'm trying to focus on what the final product will be - not on the…

Something new to worry about: Passing along anxieties

When I let my son watch Finding Nemo, I always start it at the scene where Nemo is waking his dad up for the first day of school. I know that fairy tales and children's movies have a long history of removing mothers from stories because moms represent safety and security. But in the case of Finding Nemo, I think that the opening scenes are a little too traumatic. My son…

Do you like number one or number two?

I recently went for my annual eye exam. My vision is poor, even without all that blue light at night, so I try to be as good to my eyes as possible. I have a good rapport with my eye doctor; she is amazingly gentle with the battery of vision and pressure tests and she understands why I giggle during the main vision test (thanks,…

Are You Stressing Your Kids Out?

This content originally appeared on www.playdatesonfridays.com.

Two travel soccer leagues, piano, gymnastics, horseback, theater and various school activities.   And sometimes a lacrosse clinic. Or basketball. Or we may take a cooking class some place.

Sometimes when I write it all down, it freaks me out a bit, and I ask myself, “Are we doing too much? Do my kids have enough time to play, or breathe?”

And then I…

School Avoidance (Part 2 of 2)

As I mentioned in my previous blog, we have had an increase in calls to our Family Support Line related to children refusing to go to school. If you did not read the previous blog, it would be a good place to start regarding general information on heading off school avoidance in children.

What is school avoidance? The website, Human Illnesses, defined school avoidance as “when children and teens repeatedly stay home from school or are repeatedly sent home from school, because of…

School Avoidance (Part 1 of 2)

We have had three calls to our Family Support Line in the last month related to children refusing to go to school. It occurred to me that this might be a good topic to address in the blog. In the twenty years that I have been working with children and families, I have noticed that school avoidance seems to rise around the holidays. I believe there are a few reasons for the peak in school avoidance around this time of year. The first is that the semester is finishing up and the stress…
