Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder refresher

Kenneth J. Headen, M.D., psychiatrist and author, has written an excellent review about ADHD on his blog.

Dr. Headen holds a special place in my heart. He and ariadneK were the first to link back to the original Psych Patient, MD blog. Both Dr. Headen’s and ariadneK’s blogs are worth bookmarking. The links are listed under Mental Health Blogs in my blogroll.

Just in time for Mother’s Day

If only I had more time with my mom …

You Are Somewhat Like Your Mom

Believe it or not, you and your mom are pretty darn similar.
It may not seem like it at times, but you and your mom have a lot of common ground.
Over time, you’ll probably get closer … especially if you emphasize the things you like about each other.
Are You Like Your Mom?

Oh so true …

“More often than not, a hero’s most epic battle is the one you never see;
it’s the battle that goes on within him or herself.”

… it’s making me wait …

Okay, beautiful Sunday morning. I’m sitting at my computer going through my email, drinking a leisurely cup of coffee, and then … I gotta go. But I don’t wanna go. Not just yet. Just lemme finish reading my email. Then I’ll go.

Then the cramping starts. I really should go, now. Hmmm, okay. I’ll go. Just lemme finish my coffee.

So I get to the bathroom, and I CAN’T go!

Half an hour and lots of straining later, I have a clogged toilet!

We can put people on the moon. We can re-use space craft. Why can’t we make a psychiatric medication that doesn’t cause constipation?!

The most caring child

Help Comes In Many Forms …

Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he
was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the
most caring child. The winner was a four year old child whose next
door neighbour was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard,
climbed onto his lap and just sat there. When his mother asked him what
he had said to the neighbour, the little boy said, “Nothing, I just helped
him cry.”
