  1. I was listening to one of your programs from a few months ago when you had Dr. Twerski. He mentioned a few times that there are different types of depressions: one type is a chemical imbalance with no known cause that needs meds, and another type is when someone’s depressed for a specific reason (example: grief) and then they need coping skills.
    I was suffering from depression that was clearly the result of certain circumstances. I went to therapy, but for a long time I hesitated to go on meds because I knew the logical cause of the depression. I finally went on meds when I was desperate and had a hard time functioning. Even though the situation has not changed, the issue is not taking over my life like it used to, and I’m able to function and enjoy life.
    So I was wondering what your thoughts were on this. Is there really no overlap between “chemical imbalance” and depression from a known cause? Based on my experience I would say there is.
    The psychiatrist that prescribed my meds said that obviously meds can’t solve different life problems, but it can help with coping.

  2. What is a good cause for a mother to hit a child? (ex: chutzpah, lying,)
    Also, if a child refuses to eat supper, should I force feed?

  3. I am 30 years old and just lost my father several months ago. He died of pancreatic cancer after just 4 months post-diagnosis. I find myself thinking about him and worrying about my mother all day every day. I am generally emotionally reserved and I find myself crying suddenly, seemingly unexpected. I want to know – is this a normal part of grieving? is there anything I can do to cope?

  4. I’m in therapy for 9 months now to help me with PTSD. I went consistently every week, sometimes even twice a week. My therapist does not do EMDR. While she agrees that EMDR would probably be a great way to heal the trauma, she does not feel that I am ready for a switch. I am still working on feeling safe with this therapist and starting all over and trusting a new person will take time and I’m not ready for that now.

    What do you think?
