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.
