all by itself…

Posted on Sunday 23 March 2014

When I saw this, being a chronic follower of Dr. Nemeroff’s doings, I clicked on the link. It’s a topic he talks about a lot. There was no Abstract or Article posted on this side of a paywall…

    When he hired Nemeroff back in 2009, Dean and Senior Vice President of the Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine at University of Miami Pascal Goldschmidt said, “There will be particular scrutiny of his activities to protect him and the institution and to make sure there is no bias in his work.” Way to go, Pascal!

    He doesn’t have to say much more; who is it that’s being the most deaf and should be listening the most?

    Besides potential victims of Nemeroff’s?

    “Elucidating” there is a word in common use today. In a time when there is so much abuse of children and young adults I find this attitude, combined with the conflicts, to be rather pretentious.

    Obviously Dr. Nemeroff is a leader of his profession. Why else would so many companies and organizations want his opinion?

    I am a survivor of childhood abuse who was borderlined for rejecting psychiatric treatment, and I’m battling nausea right now.

    This study suggests that epigenetic changes in ID3, GRIN1, and TPPP genes, in combination with experiences of maltreatment, may confer risk for depression in children. The study adds to a growing body of literature supporting a role for epigenetic mechanisms in the pathophysiology of stress-related psychiatric disorders. Although epigenetic changes are frequently long lasting, they are not necessarily permanent. Consequently, interventions to reverse the negative biological and behavioral sequelae associated with child maltreatment are briefly discussed.”

    Ingrid, you might want to read this:

    Having one adult a child can trust in their lives can immunize them from a lot of the effects of abuse.

    wiley, thank you so much for the link. I have printed it out for more careful reading. This might fit perfectly into something I’m writing now.

    I was lucky and had many adult friends as I was growing up. Here is the story of Soldier:

    “Someone who had seen me” was an important factor when I first began to allow memories and emotions from old harm to thaw, more than a quarter century ago. In that scary and chaotic period, when I deep down inside knew that I was going to drown and die, Soldier said something in a dream:
    «One cannot sink who is a boat.»
