    Another great show with Dr. Dave and Rubin Naiman. I like the point of view that a disease is a fact, but illness is a subjective experience that can be altered to be experienced in other ways. The goal is not to be healthy, but to use the vehicle you have. I am fairly obsessed about health and will modify my outlook to fit these ideas if I can.

    Gloria’s comments at the end of the show, about her dreams and that her expression of them is her equivalent of The Red Book made me laugh in sympathy. My crude drawings with accompanying commentary are my version, too. I even did a fancy first letter on some of the quotes.

    Thanks shrinkrapradio!

    Great show! I am a mental health counselor working at a college integrated care wellness center. When I think about the care that my clients receive, it is often above and beyond traditional care they would receive if they simply received counseling or health services. Throughout my doctoral program, I’ve conducted research on the impact of integrated care at colleges and it is definitely an emerging trend for college health. I would love to hear more in a future interview from a physician’s perspective.
