By Catherine Durkin Robinson on Sep 25, 2011 - 8:38:45 PM

grief-hugging-three-A.jpg

pills_prescriptions_medications_drug_pill-A.jpg
LOS ANGELES—I give off a certain “do-it yourself” vibe. This attitude, combined with my independent streak and naturally curly hair, might suggest to some that I’m against professional help of any kind. Don't let shame stop you from getting help.

pornography-A.jpg
LOS ANGELES—
Happiness is a lot like pornography. We may not always be able to define it, but we know it when we see it. The movement or trend to bring happiness to every man, woman, and child has hit a major roadblock.

By Catherine Durkin Robinson on Jul 17, 2011 - 6:21:49 AM

Dry_Skin-A.jpg
LOS ANGELES—

Hearing_Loss-a.jpg

Middle-aged adults are in an interesting demographic between kids and parents, neither of whom listens. What to do when hearing loss makes communication even more difficult?
