Happy Memorial Day!
- Jung, C.G. – The Red Book that link is text. And here are a small taste of the paintings. — . For information on this book look here and here. I’ve got a copy of the book but have not been well enough to read it. I relish the thought of being able to delve into it in the hopefully not too distant future. The book is 10 lbs and needs to be on a table and read while seated which is the biggest problem for me now. I still need to be resting most of the time and when I’m up I do more active things.
- Film captures mood swings of bipolar disorder — Reuters (the Reuters link wasn’t working so this is Yahoo, from Reuters) I have no idea what this film will be like. It could be really bad.
- Doc, Am I Normal? Yes. | World of Psychology — Our culture does a pretty terrible job educating us about normal human functioning. In fact, after 12 years of school, and then 10 more years of college and graduate school, I never once had a single full lecture on “normal” or “healthy” functioning. That fact alone helps me understand some of the questions or fears my clients have. Before we go any further, one thing I want to note is that all of the experiences below can still be unpleasant, and we can benefit from learning new perspectives and approaches.
- Popular diet drug ‘can potentially cause serious liver damage’ – Telegraph — The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in America, which issued the warning, said that the move followed reports of 13 cases of severe liver damage in patients. The organisation has now asked GSK to change the labelling of the drug in America to make consumers aware of the potential risk.
- Increasing BPA levels in urine associated with worsening male sexual function, study finds — another of the dozens of reasons to avoid BPA. I’m going to can enough tomatoes this summer for the whole year.
- Killer ramen: College students who eat cheap instant foods are at risk for chronic diseases — so is everyone who eats like this.
