It is still hard for me to call it a “blog.” I began writing “columns” in 2001 on a website I built and then would publish each one and send them out to an email list. It was “The Coffee Chronicles” back then. But here we are, with a blog. This is where I’ll be posting new podcast transcripts, columns, and articles about mental health. You are invited to follow along.
Clonazepam in the Treatment of Bruxism
This should probably also be on my dental sleep medicine page but I am still experiencing technical difficulties. Clonazepam was brought up a few times in the lecture on bruxism at the AADSM by Dr. Gilles Lavigne as a treatment option. So that’s what happened! I just managed to put 2 and 2 together. This…Keep reading
This is one of those rare times that two of my my passions, dentistry and mental health awareness, interconnect. I am spending the weekend at the annual conference for the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM). I’ll have more to write as a wrap up on my professional page, Axiom Orthodontic Studios, but one…Keep reading
A Walk in My Shoes
It’s official! For Mental Health Awareness Month, I renamed, expanded, and republished my book. It is now available on Amazon and through my websites. It is the collected transcripts of the podcast to date, with a Foreword, Introduction and some editing. A hardcover will be available soon. An audio book will be coming along. Yes,…Keep reading
Lessons Learned from a Bar Fight
From posts I am seeing, I imagine that many people were disappointed by other people in 2022. I am reading a knee jerk reaction, about how if we don’t have expectations, we will never be disappointed. Umm, no. It is all about a bar fight in SW Philly.Keep reading
Perspective: Use It or Lose it
2022 was one of the toughest years of my life. It got downright ugly. I’ll make the jokes and share the memes on Facebook because they are funny, but I’ll also look back on 2022 fondly.Keep reading
Beyond the Check Marks: People with Disabilities Can Make Better Employees
When I was an employer, I looked for or ignored the “disabled” label. I knew other employers that veered away from it. As disabled myself, and currently unemployed, I never know what to check when filling out an application. I have silent disabilities, so I wonder if the recruiter or owner is someone like me…Keep reading
I am starting to get organized here and wanted to let subscribers know what is going on. This is something I meant to do when I first launched the page but am finally getting around to it. Posts are categorized into three different types and I finally have a page for each. The plan is…Keep reading
The Coffee Chronicles: Chance Encounters Or this might be a part of Let’s Get Naked About Mental Health! Anyway… I firmly decided not to have a Christmas. It was not a choice to be miserable, but just make it another day. There’s a podcast about it. In the podcast, I talk about my aversion to…Keep reading
The Book: Let’s Unmask Depression
I was going to wait until after Christmas but then I realized that you may be struggling like I am. Aye, the depression is kicking the hell out of me. It will get worse tonight I am sure. But it may not. The book is the transcripts of episodes 1-22 of my podcast. Throughout the…Keep reading
Episode 22: Paused
Hello everybody! I tried getting episode 22 done and out but the flu got a hold of me and wouldn’t let go. I tried getting it done anyway and the writing was awful. The audio sounded like I couldn’t breathe because, well, I couldn’t. After a few attempts, I decided to wait until next week.…Keep reading
