Gender Differences and Anxiety

We have known for a long time that women are twice as likely as men to suffer from an anxiety problem, like Social Anxiety Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, and others. You might assume that women are more likely to ask for professional help (and studies suggest they are), but they are also more likely to report the symptoms for these problems in community surveys.

Going Unnoticed

When I was in seventh grade I thoroughly enjoyed Sherlock Holmes stories.  I remember how impressed I was with the brilliance of Sherlock Holmes in Silver Blaze. In that short story, a race horse disappears and some sheep are found injured.

Social Anxiety and the Wizard of Oz

I really like old classic movies, but the Wizard of Oz has always troubled me. You know, flying monkeys and what not. And who wants to be surrounded by all those people telling you in song which road to take? But the part that really irks me comes at the end.
