Content Advisory

Content Advisory: Whereas: this blog occasionally employs "colorful language,"

may also occasionally contain implicit and explicit references to

tobacco, alcohol, and other substances, as well as sexuality,

and favors logic over dogma, any or all of which may offend some,

and whereas I may occasionally give disclaimers,

but I do NOT give "trigger warnings,"

therefore, be it resolved that: this blog is intended for mature readers.

However, this blog is not age-restricted.

The Nocebo Effect: Negative Thoughts Can Harm Your Health

From Dr. Lissa Rankin's "Owning Pink" blog at the Psychology Today website, something I've told many people who JUST WOULD NOT BELIEVE ME for whatever reason(s) (personally, I think stubbornness is the primary culprit in two or three of these cases):
The Nocebo Effect:  Negative Thoughts Can Harm Your Health

I do hope this will wake some people up to the undesirable effects of constantly dwelling on their miseries, and the benefits of optimism.
