Men who engage in gay sex while believing it is wrong are more than twice as likely to be unhappy than other men

By Tanner Garrity For better or worse, the internet has become a place to commiserate over obscure fears. Like: “listening to music with earphones on public transport and finding out everyone can hear it,” or “getting into an accident while driving somewhere I’m not supposed to be,” or, simply, “closely-packed holes.” The idea in sharing these phobias isn’t exactly to replace or downplay more conventional fears (like losing a loved one, Alzheimer’s or public speaking), but to have a bit of a nervous laugh. They’re a call for solidarity in the name of shared day-to-day agony, and more often tha… Read More “The Terror of Marrying Into a Turkey Trot Family”

In the middle of a rainy Michigan night, 88-year-old Dian Wurdock walked out the front door of her son’s home in Grand Rapids, barefoot and coatless. Her destination was unknown even to herself. Wurdock was several years into a dementia diagnosis that turned out to be Alzheimer’s disease. By luck, her son woke up and found her before she stepped too far down the street. As the Alzheimer’s progressed, so did her wandering and with it, her children’s anxiety. “I was losing it,” said her daughter, Deb Weathers-Jablonski. “I needed to keep her safe, especially at night.” Weathers-Jablonski install… Read More “When the Eye on Older Patients Is a Camera”
