The Shrink Rappers Rap With Dr. Mike Sevilla on Family Medicine Rocks!

In case you missed it, we were on Dr. A's BlogTalkRadio show last night-- Family Medicine Rocks hosted by Dr. Mike Sevilla. Sarebear and Crazy Girl called in-- it was fun! And we got to ramble about our book and what went on behind the scenes, with a shout out or two to our oh-so-tolerant editor, Jackie.

If you missed it, don't worry, it's preserved for all time on the internet and here's the link to the Family Medicine Rocks website/blog with all the info. Mike writes:

We had a great conversation about the origins of the book, the process of editing/finalizing the book, and how they didn't kill each other during this process - Hehe.

The setup for the book is interesting that they wrote fictional characters to explain how psychiatric patients are taken care of. For example, since Roy takes care of hospital based patients, his section talked about that. Clink is a forensic psychiatrist and she tacked questions like "What's it like in a prison setting?" And, Dinah is in private practice and she talked about issues like "What it's like inside the walls of a psychiatrist office during an appointment."

Oh, but I cheated just a little and changed Roy and Clink back to Roy and Clink, just for our Shrink Rap blog (they've long ago outed themselves...).

as far as the use of xanex. If it is use properly, xanex is the best anti depression, anxiety med out there. I have tried every, non- benzos-, including some benzo- including lorazapan, colonapion and other drugs that just didn't work, i have a servere anxiety and depresion problem. My doctor finaly let me try xanex and I can honestly say, used properly, is the best med out there. I am Bi- polor annd tried suicide. My heart stopped five times but with the grace of god and sone great doctor's, i lived. I take my meds exactly how prescribed. Take it how your supposed to,it is a life saver. Don't take it or give it away and you will have a long fruitfull life. Thank god for my Doctors and xanex. think about it!
