[ - ] I'm supposed to choose insurance plans soon. Should I go for the plan that covers my existing therapist, or one that doesn't? The one that doesn't is much cheaper. Sounds like a stupid question, but I've been thinking of changing therapists for a while now so this could be the push I need to finally do it (she doesn't do CBT and I want to try that) . But I am scared that I will miss seeing her since she has helped me a lot and I've been with her for almost 2 years. It will take ages to get the new guy up to speed on everything I've told her. 18 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] I know this sounds mean, but I'm home this summer and I am blown away by the sahm lifestyle in my NYC suburb. They are together constantly, sitting at each others pools or at the beach. Going to dinner to get a break. They talk local gossip, home improvement, kids and joke about all they didn't get done. Its really not that my job is so meaningful. Maybe it's just that work exposes you to different types of people and at some point you have to get something done or there will be consequences. These very nice people spend all day with people just like them and consume and demand service, while they have very little demands placed on them. It's mind numbing. 24 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

We talk about politics because politics is a process of listening to information and then making a decision. New information comes up every day. Look at the the DNC emails released yesterday that show top officials at the DNC conspired against Bernie Sanders, trying to portray him as an atheist, among other things, and wrote to NBC's Chuck Todd, telling him to stop Mika Brzezinski from being critical of Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Information and discussion are important. Democracy isn't about having your mind made up and closing your ears to new information. That's fascistic. [ Reply | More ]
