    MyNDTALK - Defiant  - Janine Shepherd

    As I looked back over the landscape of my life, and the many setbacks I had endured, I saw that every loss also offered a gift, even if I didn't recognize it at the time. Whenever I was called upon to loosen my grip on some cherished part of my life, I was consequently given the opportunity to start again, to create anew something of value . . . every ending carried the seeds of possibility, a chance to start over."

    MyNDTALK – Finally Out – Dr. Loren A. Olson

    Dr. Loren A. Olson has frequently been asked two questions: How could you not know that you were gay until the age of forty? Wasn't your marriage just a sham to protect yourself at your wife's expense? Dr. Olson answers these questions by telling the story of his evolving sexuality, into which he weaves psychological concepts and gay history. Olsen discusses human sexuality, particularly the sexuality of mature men who, like Dr. Olson, lived a large part of their lives as straight men--sometimes long after becoming aware of
    their same-sex attractions.

    MyNDTALK - Is There A Reason To Hurt? - Dr. Aneesh Singla

    "Why must we feel pain?
    It is a question humans have asked for centuries. Harvard-trained pain specialist Dr. Aneesh Singla offers a physician's point of view as he takes a journey through medicine, history, and the world around us to provide some insights into our experience of pain, what we can do about it, and why it hurts in the first place.

    Drawing upon over a decade of experience, Dr. Singla offers an honest and insightful look at how we must balance our desire to "cure" every type of pain with the urgent need to manage the colossal problem of chronic pain, which afflicts over 116 million Americans, and many millions more across the globe.

    As the opioid crisis in the United States is reaching critical levels, we live in a world where misinformation about the nature of pain is all around us. Countless books offer miracle cures for all kinds of pain, with varying levels of success. However, pain can be a transformative experience, and the idea of resilience and how pain can and does make us stronger is often ignored.

    The fact is, humans have evolved to feel pain as a necessary part of life. From children born without the ability to sense pain, we have learned that a life without pain can have serious and often times fatal consequences."
