Brains in Pain

Toss the Typewriter

OCDLast night, I started reading Overcoming OCD: A Journey to Recovery by Janet Singer and Seth Gillihan (1/22/2015).  It was late, well past bed-time, and I figured I was good for a chapter or two before sleep overtook me.  An hour later, I was still reading.

On April 7, 2015, I’ll share more about this compelling book. But right now, I want to applaud this author and other authors who take it upon themselves to educate the public about mental illnesses.  Thank you Janet Singer, Seth Gillihan, Xavier Amador, Pete Earley, Fletcher Wortmann (Twitter Authors May 2014), and others who courageously speak out about their family’s journeys.

Another family-destroying disease is Alzheimer’s.  The Alzheimer’s Site Blog has shared a YouTube video that explains Alzheimer’s in a straightforward, simple manner.

Here’s hoping we all continue to learn and grow in our understanding of these diseases of the mind.

interests, has an excessive influence on public opinion.”… Albert Einstein

“the Times of the nineteenth of December had published the official forecasts of the output of various classes of consumption goods in the fourth quarter of 1983, which was also the sixth quarter of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. Today’s issue contained a statement of the actual output, from which it appeared that the forecasts were in every instance grossly wrong. Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones.”…George Orwell, “1984”

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell…

Corporate espionage: Middlemen stole documents for Rs 1,000

Vicky Nanjappa

IMG_0277Even as the Finance Minister doled out sops for the corporates in the budget, the investigations into the corporate espionage case continues to go on in full swing. The recent arrest of two employees from the forest ministry and the UPSC has made investigators dig deeper.
An officer with the Delhi police probing the case tells OneIndia that no files have leaked out of the forest ministry. The two persons who have been arrested were only helping the accused build contacts in other ministries sneak files out.

Toss the Typewriter

In honor of my second draft of my first novel being 99% complete, here’s a photo of our backyard, and a link to my first guest post, Fear, Fraud, and Fiction, from last October.

Now, I shall enjoy a cup of coffee and linger calmly over my taxes…
