It’s so disappointing to see posts on Tumblr with PET scan images detailing different brain chemistry between depressed and non-depressed subjects implying that the depressed individual has no control over the situation and the only solution is medication. It appears people are using this misleading information as an excuse, a crutch. However this is anything but the case. Just as genes and chemistry affect your brain, so do your behavior, thoughts and environment! Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been shown to be the most effective treatment for depression, implying that thought patterns are the source of depression.

In other news, my fantasy college gymnastics team is hurtin’. One of my All-Americans Katy Dodds (Maryland) tore her Achilles and another Jessie DeZiel (Nebraska) has an elbow injury.
