You already know that doctors can find out a lot about you through a blood test, and now there may be another one that could have a major impact on many people worldwide. A new blood test developed by Eva Redei, PhD, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, can detect clinical depression. For many, this could be the breakthrough that eliminates years of misdiagnoses and useless medications.
We all face obstacles, challenges and crises in life. Facing a crisis does not mean the we have done something wrong, deserve to undergo the crisis at hand or are forever doomed. Our lives are not determined by whether or not we will face a crisis, or even the crisis itself,; rather, our lives are determined by how we handle each given crisis.
Today, more than ever, it has become a great challenge for many of us to successfully manage all aspects of our lives. These areas include, but are not limited to: family, work, friendships and time for self. The challenge to effectively balance these key areas is further multiplied when we are dealing with parents or parenthood. Oftentimes, both parents in the household are employed full-time, making time spent as a family unit exceedingly difficult and scarce.
