The Evolution of Heterosexual Relationships

The Evolution of Heterosexual Relationships

Back in the day, I spent 13 years as Medical Director for Community Mental Health in cottage country Central Ontario. This area, part-time home to the rich and shameless bourgeoisie of Toronto provided an opportunity to practice bread and butter psychiatry, by that I mean everything in the DSM several times over. Every variety of anxiety disorder, depression, perversion, and eating disorder were to be had in abundance

Sea Snails and Shock Therapy

I was talking with my editorial advisor who has an interest in malacology. Read mollusks. Molluscollogists, even have their own journal. His particular sub speciality is cataloging sea snails while fending off bull sharks while diving off the coral reefs of the Caribbean. Everyone needs a hobby I guess.

Dr. Al’s Antidepressant Culinary Regimen

Back in the day, I was given a copy of Freud’s Own Cookbook published by Hillman in 1985. Such recipes as Fettuccine Libido, Erogenous Scones and Interpretation of Creams were designed to improve mood through levity. But they were actually serious recipes as was Luncheon Interruptus. Only Freud has had the courage to define the matzoh-ball for what it is – ”the ego in the midst of the primal broth.”

Anal Reflections

Anal Reflections

Republicans and Muslims surprisingly have a lot in common psychodynamically. They fear secularism, modernity, rely on religious truths laid down in medieval or ancient times, and support traditional gender roles and the subjugation of women. As well they both like swords and guns.
