Online daters are good people. Many seek long-term relationships. However, I often hear that there are “So many ‘bad apples'” on many online dating sites. Why?
Well, It is not that the online dating sites are bad, but how people are using them. Unresolved emotional issues from previous relationships make it hard to trust and be vulnerable again in another potential romantic relationship.
By using Personal Revolution Therapy mental tools, It will help letting go of painful memories and of distrusting of others.
There are three phrases you must pay attention to that will help you decide to end a chronic unsatisfying, unfulfilling, and unloving relationship.
We struggle to end a long term unhappy relationship because we feel we have invested our time and emotional energy to that relationship. Many times we stay in a bad relationship for particle reasons such as financial and/or keeping the family together. By the way, staying in a unhappy marriage because of the children is a bad idea. Children learn about relationships by watching their parents’ own relationship with each other. You are showing your children, especially, your daughters, that their happiness does not matter.
Many patients in their early 50’s and with memory problems tell me that they have suffered some type of head trauma while playing sports as kids. There is a higher probability that you will suffer memory problems if you have had head trauma from playing youth sports, especially, in high school/college football and cheering. The statistics on head trauma among youth sports is staggering.
However, I like to be more optimistic to think that we are doing a better job in informing parents about concussions, as well as, developing better sport equipments to protect our kids from suffering head traumas.
Youth football and cheerleading season is around the corner. Please, please, continue to monitor your kids that they use proper sport gear and, especially with cheerleading, that all possible precautions are taken to protect our kids from injuries. By taking these steps, we parents, are helping prevent our kids from having memory problems as adults.
The opioid crisis in America should focus on both intervention and prevention therapies. Not only do we need better treatments to help those suffering from opioid abuse, but we also need better medical and psycho-educational programs to prevent patients from getting addicted to those addictive medications.
Constipation is a side-effect of opioid usage. Some drug companies advertise heavily on drugs that supposed to treat constipation. This is the epitome of putting too much attention in alleviating side-effects of prescribed drugs. Equal attention should also be given in developing better preventive programs to avoid getting addicted to those drugs. Those who abuse opiates, for example, tend to have comorbidity with other psychological disorders. Chronic depression and anxiety are such comorbidity that need to be incorporated into preventive programs, more overtly.
Carol Gilligan’s book: In a Different Voice: “Psychological Theory and Women’s Development” was a mandatory book during my graduate school years in psychology. Her psychological theories about thinking helped me develop Personal Revolution Therapy’s , mental tool, technique number 2, ReThinking and ReExamining.
Ms. Gilligan said, “I’ve found that if I say what I’m really thinking and feeling, people are more likely to say what they really think and feel. The conversation becomes a real conversation.”
I think that having effective conversations is the key for positive change. However, how to establish effective conversations is a learning skill. We talk about the need to have good conversations, but we, sometimes, don’t take the time to learn that skill or admit that we may have deficiencies in the way we communicate, thus, leading to no change, personally and/or at the workplace.

I believe, change in behavior are the first signs of memory loss not in cognition. We are now studying those who are not diagnosed with Alzheimer’s to help fight this disease. Those who were not grumpy before and now they are, maybe the start signs of memory loss.
Throughout my twelve years of doing Alzheimer’s research, I always thought that doing research on those individuals who are not diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and are starting to have memory problems would be the ideal population to study in order to find effective ways to prevent and cure Alzheimer’s. It seems that is what Alzheimer’s researchers is doing now.
At this time, There is no treatment to cure or prevent someone from developing Alzheimer’s Disease. Bob DeMarco writes. “When Alzheimer’s strikes the first thing that happens is we enter a period of what could best be described as ‘deep sadness.'” When we discover that pills or apps/games that supposed to improve memory, propagandize by non-pharmaceutical companies, that is, companies that do not follow FDA guidelines, do not work, our “deep sadness” turns into despair, a complete loss of hope. That false hope prevents families from seeking real help.
We do have medications that help manage those who suffer from Alzheimer’s, as well as, social services for these patients and their families. Helping families cope with Alzheimer’s is a positive way that offers real information about this disease and helps caregivers learn more on how to manage the patient at home.
Alzheimer’s Researchers are seeking people in their early 50s and up with slight memory problems and NO diagnose of Alzheimer’s. These courageous individuals will help Alzheimer’s researchers find better medications that could prevent or slow down memory problems. Then, hopefully, opening the doors, for someday ,discovering the cure for Alzheimer’s, once and for all.

Any effective researcher knows that to discover what really causes what is not so easily proven. Achieving high reliability and validity, that is, cause and effect, that cellphone programs are brain hacking is very difficult to show. There are too many variables to narrow it to the programs on your cellphone.
Spending too much time on your cellphone, like other forms of media, is just another form of distraction to a deeper emotional and psychological distress. Ineffectively, it is often used to try to cope with depression or anxiety.
Do not blame the programs on your cellphone or any other form of media for being unhappy in your life. Instead, for example, focus on being a better parent. Effective parenting will teach your kids how to cope with diversities in life, including being distracted by the use of cellphones. So, do not blame the cellphone for why your child is spending many hours on their phones.
