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.

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.…
