    Steroid use, doping, performance-enhancing drugs; there’s been a surge in news reports of professional athletes using the stuff in recent years — especially in major league baseball. *cough Barry Bonds cough* And that’s what’s at stake in “Red Speedo,” Theatre Exile’s newest, debuting next week. Lucas Hnath, the playwright, and Deborah Block, the director, chatted with me about the play and the production. And I’m happy to report up front – there will be a cute dude in a speedo. “There will be a pool, there will be chlorine, there will be splashing,”…

  • Let’s talk about Jessie Ware

    I haven’t latched on to a piece of music like this in a while. In the past calendar year or two it’s been like this with: Sam Smith, St. Vincent, Little Dragon, Lake Street Dive, Disclosure, Daphni and, well, The Velvet Rope. These are records I can’t get enough of and can listen to beginning to end, anytime, anywhere. And while I was what I would call an early adopter of Jessie Ware, mostly because I was bugging the hell out over “Wildest Moments” two Junes ago, I never worshiped Devotion, her August 2012 LP debut. It just didn’t stick. “110%” is pretty damn slick, with its…
  • Locust Moon Comics’ “Little Nemo” tribute: graphic novel of the year?

    By Brooke Bolander In the beginning—before Garfield and Peanuts, Nancy and Doonesbury, Hägar and Blondie and a thousand other four-panel funnies relegated to the outer fringes of the Sunday papers—newspaper comics were literal giants. Rainbow-hued, massive in scale, they took up entire broadsheet pages, and the space and freedom afforded their artists resulted in some of the most intricate, beautiful work the medium has ever produced. First and foremost among these was Winsor McCay’s Little Nemo In Slumberland, an Art Nouveau wonder set inside a little boy’s dreams. In the world of…

    By Jaime Anne Earnest It’s been over a decade since I first negotiated with an unhinged, irrational human being in a high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse. That time, the topic was vaccines. Bless my initial clumsy attempts to convince a fellow citizen to not risk the life of their child and the lives of others in their community; my hands shook, and my throat seemed to collapse in on itself. I recall heat raging on the sides of my face as spectators clustered in an anticipatory mob, waiting for a single verbal misstep. My years of careful study and internship hadn’t prepared me for this; no…

    As you may know,  I’m a bipolar coach and I specialize in working with parents and partners who have a loved one with bipolar disorder.  One of the most common questions I receive is from parents and partners about how they can better recognize mania. Here are some tips on how to recognize euphoric mania. (I will do a post on how to recognize dysphoric mania in the next few days.) If you’re not sure of the difference between the two, please use the search button to the right of the page and either type in euphoric or dysphoric to read more about the two types of mania. Mania…

    Hello Internet world. My name is Jess, and I’m pretty new to this blogging paradise that I have recently discovered. Bear with me as I am still trying to figure out all the kinks. I’m not too sure yet on how to put a bio somewhere on this page, so I guess I can tell you a bit about myself. I’m 21 years old, turning 22 in about 5 months. I live in Canada, and just moved back to my hometown 6 months ago, and am currently living in my parent’s basement. How depressing, I know. I live with my Mum and Step Dad, my younger sister, and my cute pup. My older brother lives on his…

    A Mad Reality

  • Self-harm take two- I'm huge

    15 Oct 2014 | 3:58 pm
    One of the reasons I self-harm, probably the biggest reason, is because of my body. I sometimes get to a point where I can’t stand it. I am so uncomfortable in this body that I need to do something to express that pain. I am huge. I am trying to stay positive that over time I will lose weight. It’s not working. I just feel I can’t deal with this body another minute. I am so uncomfortable. I’m trying to resist the urge to release the pain. I just can’t distract myself.Short and to the point.
  • End of therapy?

    14 Oct 2014 | 4:15 pm
    I am pretty sure I’m stopping therapy. I am not working on what we discuss in those sessions. I’m wasting my time and his time. I’m taking up an hour that could be given to someone who is actually committed. I don’t have the motivation to fix the problems in my life.Which is funny in a way. Funny in a sad way I guess. I’m working towards helping people in similar situations, trying to get people to understand what they are going through, to accept it, and to get help for it. Yet there is a step that I’m not including in that; and that is that THEY have to work at it. Something…
  • Psychomotor Agitation

    11 Oct 2014 | 2:44 pm
    The only way I can sit down to write this right now is because of Xanax.There are periods where I just can’t stay still. I have to constantly be moving; whether it is walking around, clapping my hands, or wiggling my fingers. I just have to be moving. I cannot control myself. I have a very hard time trying to explain what it is like, but for the first time I looked into these symptoms. I came across Psychomotor Agitation. It usually appears with a depressed or manic/hypomanic episode. I found this on natashatracy.com“If you’ve ever suffered from psychomotor agitation you can attest to…
  • Happiness and weight loss

    9 Oct 2014 | 4:49 pm
    I went to the gym today. I did very little. I had no energy and no motivation. I just kept thinking “what’s the point?”. I really feel like it’s impossible to lose this weight. I know I need to work to get what I want, but I just don’t have that drive. Seems easier just to stop eating. Even with that I have such a long way to go. I really wish I was back to the weight I was two years ago. It was the first time in my life where I was comfortable with my body. It just angers me that I’m not there anymore and I probably never will be again.I know two years ago I was in a bad place. I…
  • How family members deal with depression

    8 Oct 2014 | 7:42 pm
    Depression does not only effect the person who has it; it effects everyone around them, especially friends and family. They suffer as well. I knew this morning that I wanted this post to be about the subject of family members living with a person with depression, however I didn’t know what to write about. I’ve never been in that position. At least not to the degree that my family feels when it comes to my mental illness. So, I tried to do some research about what it is like living with someone with depression. I actually found very little. Found a lot about how to support your family…
