Psycho Babble by Jamie Inman

Some people think that psychotherapy is for self-indulgent whiners who won't face their problems. I have learned from both chairs in the counseling office that real therapy, the kind that produces transformation, can be arduous, sometimes tedious, and always courageous. It is hard work that requires a ferocious honesty that most people cannot imagine, let alone practice.

Psycho Babble: No charge!

You might have landed here because you know me from my activities as a health activist in the breast cancer world. There is much overlap of these two worlds, particularly for people facing breast cancer.  Self-image is so closely interwoven with body image, especially in our highly sexualized society, that mental and emotional stability are often deeply shaken by a diagnosis of breast cancer. A big part of the breast cancer experience is adjusting to the "new normal," both physically and emotionally. 

Although struggles with breast cancer and mental health usually go hand in hand, the reverse is not true: most mental health issues have nothing to do with breast, or any other, cancer.

So this blog is set aside for topics related directly to mental health and emotional well-being.  I will write about marriage, kids, stress, fighting fair and other relationship issues.  Or I might talk about depression, anxiety, or PTSD.  And I would love to address questions from readers.    Oh, did I mention sex?  That, too.

Anyway,  welcome to my funny farm!
