Column: Stop believing everything you read

"It's important to actually stop and review something before you screenshot and send it to the next person. Continuing the spread of misinformation can cause actual harm. If you don’t care enough to fact-check something before sending it, then you don’t care enough to send it in the first place."


Column: An SSRI might not be the solution

"Still, a doctor should spend longer than an hour working with patients before deciding to put someone on these types of drugs. A year of therapy has done more for me than any medication a psychiatrist ever prescribed me. And while my case is not universal, I am also not alone in this experience."


Column: My week of rejection therapy

"You get rejected – it’s an unavoidable aspect of life and you might as well accept its inevitability. I think I’ll pause on my rejection therapy for a while, but if you too tremble at the thought of asking for a refill while out to eat, it’s certainly something to consider."


Column: The Democratic party is disappointing.

"This is the problem. Democrats' don't do. They’ve taken up this somewhat “preventative” rhetoric. They emphasize all of the things they will prevent Republicans from doing (further restricting abortion access is an especially prominent example in this current election cycle). Telling voters all of the things you won’t let happen isn’t good campaigning. It's impassive and a scare tactic."
