  By Tony Leys GRINNELL, Iowa — A for-profit company has proposed turning a boarded-up former nursing home here into a psychiatric hospital, joining a national trend toward having such hospitals owned by investors instead of by state governments or nonprofit health systems. The companies see a business opportunity in the shortage of inpatient beds for people with severe mental illness. The scarcity of inpatient psychiatric care is evident nationwide, especially in rural areas. People in crisis often are held for days or weeks in emergency rooms or jails, then transported far from their h ..read more

  In this series, I want to share lessons I’ve gleaned over the years to offer some perspective to co-travelers on life’s journey because learning from others’ experiences means avoiding unnecessary pitfalls and charting more fulfilling courses for ourselves.

The painful mistake was investing all that time and emotions into relationships that only drained me, rather than uplifted and supported me. Giving love to the wrong people can take many forms: staying in toxic friendships, rom ..read more

  By Emma Durand-Wood Did you follow “Do not put your family in a small car”-gate a few weeks back? In this viral tweet, a husband shared photos of his wife’s badly damaged SUV: while driving with their child, she’d been hit head-on by a delivery truck whose driver had had a seizure. He described the terror of being alerted to an accident and pulling up to the scene, not knowing what he would find. Incredibly, there were no serious injuries, but police told them if they’d been in a smaller vehicle, the collision would have been fatal. The tweet ends: I am so thankful they are okay (and t ..read more

Addiction Is Boring

  People often wonder if their shrink ever gets tired of hearing them talk about their problems. I rarely do, with one exception, the person who is in active, late-stage addiction. The day they get serious about recovery, they start to get interesting again. When they’re in the throes of addiction, I always know what they’re going to say, what they’re going to do, and what they think of it all. They’re single-mindedly focused on one thing only, getting high. Oh, maybe three things. Looking to get high, getting high, and recovering from getting high. Maybe four. Coming up with reasons for ..read more

Often those of us who have experienced neglect and abuse have a really complex relationship with anger (actually, most people do, but that’s another story). One, we may have experienced a parent, partner or authority figure use their anger to intimidate and manipulate us, creating an association between anger and being a really crappy sort of person. Two, we may have experienced the same person or people being very dysregulated and unable to control their anger, creating genuinely terrifying situations where we learn to do anything to appease them and make things ok again. And three, we have ..read more
