Stress reduction etc. : readings

I think it might be worth while to share, here, references to literature and writers of material that supports the reduction of stress and promotes the development of personal relationships, including BB's, that help us get over this wretched condition.

I recently became aware of a San Francisco Chronicle columnist, Adair Lara, who has written some essays (twice weekly) that seem appropriate. One is her anthology, "Slowing Down in a Speeded-up World", and there are others. She is also noted for writing about the stressful transition of her daughter into adulthood.

Do a web search on "Adair Lara" + "speeded" and you will get references to other writers as well as Ms. Lara.

Anyone else have a favorite or another contribution?

I have a ton of favorites who have helped me. Doctors Jon Kabat-Zinn, Herbert Bensen, Dean Ornish, Mehmet Oz, Joan Borysenko, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, and Candice Pert (all are either MDs' or PhDs' and have years of experience, research and books on stress, the mind/body connection and the healing power of support).

In the Dec. 17. 2001 issue of Time magazine , there is an article under the First person segment written by Michael Kinsley entitled In Defense of Denial. It deals with his and other's perspective on emotionally dealing with getting an incurable disease, his being Parkinson's. If someone else can find the link, it might also make an interesting discussion for us. It mentions acceptance , confrontation , and/or denial as a mental attitude. Most of us here are in confrontation with beb, trying to learn as much as we possibly can about it.
It's the people who know what caused my beb,and are in ladeda denial about it that bother me the most.
This is very different from the denial he mentions as the person having the disease or disorder.

Also Guideposts, a Christian publication is very inspiring. Someone gave me the book; i think it also comes out monthly as a magazine?
