Today’s podcast is a little unusual. Dr. Margaret’s telling a bit of her own love story with the man she married almost 28 years ago. She wrote a post about their marriage in 2014 that went viral on The Huffington Post, which she’s going to share with you, along with a few back stories of why these particular ideas came to her mind at that time.

Incredible photographers Christine Mathias and Deborah Payne Strauss generously offered their gorgeous and evocative photographs to create what is now available as the book, “Marriage Is Not For Chickens.”

Her listener email asks questions about crippling anxiety, or Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and panic disorder — what treatment modalities might be used, other than cognitive-behavior techniques?

My new book entitled Perfectly Hidden Depression will be arriving November 1,2019! Its message is specifically for those with a struggle with strong perfectionism which acts to mask underlying emotional pain. But the self-help techniques described can be used by everyone who chooses to begin to address emotions long hidden away that are clouding and sabotaging your current life. More to come.
