In the March NAMI Advocate newsletter, it is reported that research indicates that Omega 3s in general, could be taken before a psychotic disorder fully emerges (with far less side-effects than anti-psychotic medications).
From my personal perspective as a religiously/spiritually-observant psychotherapist, personality disorders can be a psycho-spiritual issue. My sense is that people with these disorders also appear to have spiritual barriers.
I think I figured it out. What was puzzling wasn’t the dog’s behavior-it was the videographer’s. How could the cameraman keep this worried animal in suspense and not go to the canine companions’ rescue?

I remember back in the 1960s when my father stored all the family’s “important papers” in one or two accordion files.

In fact, upon reading the book, we weren’t so much struck by his inability to “pick up on” normative social interactions as we were by how shallow and deceptive our “normal” social interactions actually appear when analyzed by someone with Asperger’s!
