IS THE WAY THAT YOU THINK, SPEAK, AND ACT WHILE AWAY FROM WORK CONSISTENT WITH HOW YOU PERFORM THESE ACTIONS WHILE AT WORK? IF NOT, THEN YOU ARE NOT BEING INTERNALLY AND EXTERNALLY CONSISTENT. YOU ARE NOT WALKING YOUR PATH. THIS DISSONANCE CREATES TENSIONS WHICH, EVENTUALLY WEAR YOU DOWN, EITHER PHYSICALLY OR MENTALLY. EVENTUALLY, ALL THIS COMES CRASHING DOWN, AFFECTING YOUR PERSONAL LIFE AND YOUR FINANCIAL HEALTH. IT MAY TAKE YEARS, EVEN AS LONG AS DECADES, TO REACH THIS BREAKING POINT, BUT YOUR MIND’S NEED TO RESOLVE (or at least decrease) THESE INCONSISTENCIES IS UNRELENTING.

CHILDHOOD TRAUMA AND NEGLECT AFFECT US, BUT DO NOT HAVE TO CONTROL US…

Parents’ behaviors may range from somewhat to totally pathological.  Often this is due to their own mental health issues, ignorance, how they were treated, or how they were taught to raise children. I’m a firm believer that our traumatized adults (who may have everything from personality issues, to depression, to anxiety, to PTSD to ADHD)Continue reading “CHILDHOOD TRAUMA AND NEGLECT AFFECT US, BUT DO NOT HAVE TO CONTROL US…”

I ASK PATIENTS TO NOT SUDDENLY STOP SUBSTANCES SUCH AS ALCOHOL, BENZODIAZEPINES (Valium, Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, Tranxene, etc.), OR SEDATIVE-HYPNOTIC DRUGS (these are sleep aids, which are typically long-acting benzodiazepines such as Ambien, Lunesta, Restoril, Dalmane, Halcion, etc.) WITHOUT PROFESSIONAL HELP. SUDDEN CESSATION OF THESE PRODUCTS MAY LEAD TO SEIZURES AND DEATH.

Often, unintentionally, or due to fragmentation of care, or due to improper documentation/lack of review of documentation, or due to concealment by the patient, some patients are also using alcohol while taking a benzodiazepine along with a sleep aid. The combination of 2 or 3 categories of products are especially dangerous (excessive sedation, confusion/delirium, falls,Continue reading “I ASK PATIENTS TO NOT SUDDENLY STOP SUBSTANCES SUCH AS ALCOHOL, BENZODIAZEPINES (Valium, Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, Tranxene, etc.), OR SEDATIVE-HYPNOTIC DRUGS (these are sleep aids, which are typically long-acting benzodiazepines such as Ambien, Lunesta, Restoril, Dalmane, Halcion, etc.) WITHOUT PROFESSIONAL HELP.

IS A 4-DAY WORK WEEK BETTER FOR MENTAL HEALTH THAN THE 5-DAY WORK WEEK? WHAT ABOUT THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF A 3-DAY WORK WEEK, OR A 2-DAY WORK WEEK? PART OF THE PROBLEM IS THAT GETTING BACK INTO A TRULY PRODUCTIVE WORK MODE TAKES SOME REORIENTATION, EFFORT, FOCUS, AND TIME. IT’S LIKE STOP-AND-GO TRAFFIC… IT TAKES QUITE A BIT OF ENERGY TO BOTH SLOW DOWN THE MOMENTUM, AND THEN GET BACK UP TO SPEED.

Do most jobs or projects really require an 8-hour work day (or really, when taking into account breaks and lunch time, a 7.5 hour or 7 hour workday)? Charles Tadros, M.D. August 16, 2022 Saint Louis, Missouri

WORKERS WANT THEIR BOSSES TO CATCH OTHER WORKERS NOT DOING THEIR JOBS. BOSSES CANNOT RELY ON WORKERS TURNING IN THEIR COLLEAGUES AND FRIENDS, EVEN THOUGH POOR PERFORMANCES FROM SOME WORKERS SHIFT MORE WORK, RESPONSIBILITIES, AND RISK ONTO THEIR FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES.

SOME PEOPLE HAVE TO SHOW US HOW MUCH THEY ARE PAINED, SADDENED, OR DESPAIRED BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE THE WORDS TO DESCRIBE, OR CAN’T EFFECTIVELY USE THEIR WORDS TO DESCRIBE, THE MAGNITUDE AND INTENSITY OF WHAT THEY FEEL OR WHAT THEY HAVE EXPERIENCED.

Expression of such strong emotions may lead to equally strong responses and reactions, such as: graffiti piercings tattoos mood disorders, anxiety disorders, personality disorders self harm substance abuse high risk behaviors violence Charles Tadros, M.D. August 10, 2022 Saint Louis, Missouri

PSYCHOTHERAPY, PSYCHIATRY, AND PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING INVOLVE EXPERTLY LISTENING, OBSERVING, ASSESSING, CATEGORIZING, AND DIAGNOSING CLIENTS AND PATIENTS. TOO OFTEN WHAT IS NOT SHARED WITH THESE CLIENTS AND PATIENTS ARE: THE THOUGHT PROCESSES, ALGORITHMS, DIAGNOSTIC CRITERIA, CONFLICTING RESULTS, AND ACTUAL CONCLUSIONS WHICH GUIDE THEIR THERAPIES.

WHEN MANY OF US USE ALCOHOL, OFTEN IT IS IN ASSOCIATION WITH POSITIVE EVENTS SUCH AS:

CONNECTING WITH SPOUSE/PARTNER, CONNECTING WITH FRIENDS, REWARDING OURSELVES AFTER MOWING THE LAWN/DOING YARD WORK, RITUALS OF BARBEQUING, COOKING DINNER, RELAXING ON WEEKENDS and DURING VACATIONS, SHARING TEAM SPIRIT AND ENJOYING SPORTS, RELAXING AND UNWINDING AFTER A HARD DAY’S WORTH OF WORK, AND PARTIES: BIRTHDAYS, ANNIVERSARIES, GRADUATIONS, WEDDINGS, SHOWERS, HOLIDAYS, COMING OF AGE CELEBRATIONS ALL OFContinue reading “WHEN MANY OF US USE ALCOHOL, OFTEN IT IS IN ASSOCIATION WITH POSITIVE EVENTS SUCH AS:”

WHEN IT COMES TO PHYSICAL CONFLICT, POLICE ACTION, OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZED WARS, UNOFFICIAL WARS, AND PROXY WARS, WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO PRAISE OUR HEROES, DEVELOP LIFE-LONG COMRADERIES, RECOGNIZE SACRIFICE, AND COMMEND EXCEPTIONAL LEADERSHIP WITHOUT SUCH HISTORICAL VIOLENCE, LOSS, DESTRUCTION, AND BLOODSHED. PEACE BE WITH ALL WHO ARE AT WAR.

Avoiding battle does NOT mean: devaluing extensive, multifaceted, coordinated military intelligence, or naively believing that diplomacy is a tool to be used in isolation, or underestimating the value of political will, or undervaluing economic strength, or underspending tax dollars on military equipment and personnel, or being unprepared for physical conflict Charles Tadros, M.D. July 24,Continue reading “WHEN IT COMES TO PHYSICAL CONFLICT, POLICE ACTION, OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZED WARS, UNOFFICIAL WARS, AND PROXY WARS, WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO PRAISE OUR HEROES, DEVELOP LIFE-LONG COMRADERIES, RECOGNIZE SACRIFICE, AND COMMEND EXCEPTIONAL LEADERSHIP WITHOUT SUCH HISTORICAL VIOLENCE, LOSS, DESTRUCTION, AND BLOODSHED.
