The gunman accused of killing 10 people and wounding 13 at a Texas high school last week was in a state of mental confusion, his attorneys said today, as schools beefed up security for students returning to classrooms.

On being liberal about delusion 21.5.2018 DNA: Popular News
After suffering almost N-th social media post on a story of a gentleman in Gujarat government service claiming to be Kalki-avatar of Vishnu, I am now deeply intrigued, not about this strange reincarnation of Vishnu, but about those writing these posts. Most such writers are well educated Indians qualifying to be liberal intellectuals known for not missing a single opportunity to make tongue-in-cheek statements about Gujarat, so I have no doubt that they will treat a delusional man from Gujarat as a God-sent gift. My only problem is, if I pick the same group of people for a panel discussion on Ms Padukone's depression, I will have them gushing over the need of being sensitive and considerate for those suffering from mental health issues. The same lot will be full of understanding if Ms Fernandez opens up about her tryst with anxiety. In short, they are those who are proud to be better sensitised about mental health. While I have no diagnostic expertise on psychology of delusion or for that matter on Kalki ...

Actor Alyssa Milano has revealed that she suffered from her "first anxiety attack" after she gave birth to her first son, Milo in 2011. The 45-year-old actor has opened up about her brush with generalised anxiety disorder, which she claims was most likely triggered by "postpartum depression". "In 2011, two years after suffering a miscarriage, I learned that I was pregnant with my first son, Milo - and it was a dream. My miscarriage was heartbreaking, but this pregnancy was beautiful: I did not experience morning sickness; I went to prenatal yoga five times a week; I walked two miles a day; and I took naps in the afternoon. "Following this idyllic image of motherhood, I wrote a strict birth plan: no induction of labour, no pain medication and no C-sections. I equated a natural birth to my value as a woman and as a mother - and I was determined not to stray from that course," Milano wrote in an op-ed for Time magazine on account of Mental Health Awareness Week. The "Charmed" alum said ..
