I’m sure you’re wondering… Why brains?
Well, I’m a brain geek. Thinking, processing, storing, controlling… I love brains and learning all about how this tricky organ works.
My degree is a BSc in Psychology specialization, which means my major and minor were in Psychology. I really just couldn’t get enough of brains. In fact, they couldn’t get rid of me and after graduation I spent two years working as a research assistant at the University. Since my youngest son joined our family I have returned to my study of the brain, taking courses, researching and meeting with many professionals.
My geek heart gets all fluttery when I get to talk about what’s going on between our ears.
When I started this website I picked all the popular topics that I knew I would enjoy writing about, but the one thing I wasn’t sure about was brains. I mean beyond any zombie’s who happen to stumble across my blog, how many people are really interested in brains?
In the end I decided to add in this category. Brains are my thing. My kids have fascinating brains. I love learning and talking about brains. I want to learn more and I want others to have a better understanding of brains.
It’s all quite meta when you think about it. Thinking about thinking. But I hope you enjoy these little discussions and will jump in with your own thoughts and experiences.
And if you don’t like brains, it’s all cool, I have lots of other fantastic categories where we can hang out together!
If you wish to read a story inspired by childhood trauma, please read my fiction story: Shattered Embrace. Although it is fictional, the story is very real and pulls on the threads of my own experience and those I’ve connected with over the years as we face childhood trauma together.
