Light on Schizophrenia

I recently ordered this book on Amazon. I have a similar shorter book, which I have read. The main idea of the book is to use nutrition as treatment for Schizophrenia. The author is Abram Hoffer MD PhD. I remember trying this type of therapy a long time ago when I first came down with Schizophrenia. I thought it was helping me, but who knows if it really was? This branch of alternative medicine is ...

Anthony Robbins?

I used to be an avid believer of his material/teachings. But then I realized that perhaps one of the reasons I had gone mad was because of my decision to try to apply his teachings, which I most likely botched. What he preaches and advocates all sounds so great, but it is not the be-all-end-all. He doesn't know what it's like to have a mental illness for years and years. He claims to have helped ...

The Center Cannot Hold

Has anyone read this book? I have a copy of it and found it "entertaining" to read. I bought it about four years ago and read it once. I guess it helped me gain a common perspective. I also looked up the author and found video interviews. I recall Elyn R. Saks PhD (the author) saying that medication, a good support network of family and friends, etc., were her keys to recovery and success.

What books about anger have helped you?

Right now I’m reading The Dance of Anger by Harriet Lerner & it’s giving me needed perspective in my relationships with my family of origin. I want to change my moves with them, so we’ll see. I’ve also decided to no longer vent my anger because it’s not helping.

Buried in Treasure by David Tolin

I recommend the book Buried in Treasure by David Tolin for people who hoard & their friends & family. My biggest take-away is that if I want relief from my hoarding, I need to work for 30 minutes a day sorting & discarding. There’s no way around it. So I started sorting & discarding for 30 minutes today. It will take another 30 minutes to put everything away now, minimum. I had some feelings come ...

Help with being emotional

Can anyone help refer me to some good reading material for emotional self help. I am an emotional person and tend to wear my heart on my sleeve. I have good intentions and am a good person. However, in my personal life I feel that more often than I'd like I let me emotions show too often, at times when I should not. Emotions can overcome me in certain situations and I act on my ...

I have interest in psychology (Need Advsie)

Hello there,

applying cognitive science

Basically, I feel like it would be an amazing tool to know more cognitive science so that I could use it in prioritizing, scheduling, practicing better (I'm a musician), learning more effectively, etc. Is there an important book on the subject? Lots of my friends took psychology in high school but none of them changed their behavior based on the knowledge they recieved.

Both my parents have extremely emotionally stressful jobs, and when they ...
