Depression is No Laughing Matter

If it weren’t for my sense of humor, depression would have killed me decades ago. To simplify things, let’s say that there are two kinds of depression: situational depression (brought on by a recent event), and clinical depression (chock-full of lots of other items).

Having Kids is a Blessing—But So is Not Having Kids

Having kids is a blessing, but so is not having kids. Aside from the obvious of being able to focus more on your career, other things about women without children are often taken for granted.

How to Make New Friends (And Hold On to The Old Ones).

As we pass through life’s milestones, starting families and getting older, making friends can seem like an unusually difficult task.
