Comment on Impulse Control Disorders NOS by Kent Brooks http://try-therapy.com/2010/09/23/impulse-control-disorders-nos/#comment-155 Kent Brooks Sat, 25 Sep 2010 20:01:16 +0000 http://try-therapy.com/?p=615#comment-155 I read that article, look at the gamers "rationalizing" in the comments. :) My favorite argument I used to use with my wife... "I could be out drinking, but instead I am holed up in the basement. At least you know where I am." Not exactly true, because I was anywhere BUT the basement.

After that, World of Warcraft for 3-4 years of the same grind. Toss in 3-6 months with each of the following... City of Heroes, Dungeons & Dragons Online, Conan, Planetside, Shadowbane, Horizons, Crysis, Neverwinter Nights... it would suffice to say d2S, you are absolutely correct. I have been meaning to do an article on MMORPGs but I have been distracted here of late by some other interests. Truthfully, I have been avoiding writing about the issue because even thinking about them makes me want to play. The feeling reminds of of a statement I heard once... Q: Once you try a cigarette, how long does the connection last? A: A lifetime, your body will ALWAYS want a cigarette. Such is life with online gaming, at least for me.

Comment on Sleep Disorders in Childhood by Kent Brooks http://try-therapy.com/2010/09/21/kidssleep/#comment-153 Kent Brooks Sat, 25 Sep 2010 19:47:27 +0000 http://try-therapy.com/?p=602#comment-153 Absolutely, thank you for visiting the site. I really appreciate your commentary on the sleep aspect... I will admit wholeheartedly... you are certainly qualified to call yourself a "sleep specialist" based on the quality of the articles you are producing on http://delayed2sleep.wordpress.com/ I am no sleep specialist, but I have to acknowledge that sleep is a very real issue that too often compounds and amplifies other mental disorders. Your contributions are both timely and welcome. The recent elevation of sleep disorders from syndromes to disorders speaks to the attention sleep DESERVES. The Western Medical Model has gone to great lengths to differentiate the mind from the body, but I am of the belief the demarcation between mind and body is much more difficult to differentiate that they would have us believe. Do you have any insight to add on this? http://try-therapy.com/2010/09/20/sleep/ Absolutely, thank you for visiting the site.

I agree with "Personally, I wouldn’t underestimate the possibility of the comorbid sleep disorders being bidirectional in nature," and I think that this attitude is gaining. The British Association for Psychopharmacology and others have recently started referring to comorbid sleep disorders, rather than secondary sleep disorders. And the disorders can be quite physical, also in children, such as apnea and circadian rhythm disorders, where sleep hygiene is of little help. Inadequate sleep may cause depression and tiredness in children, but is probably more likely to cause ADHD-like symptoms. Thanks for response and interesting thoughts!
