I have wanted to write an article about body language for some time now and... this is the month! As it turned out, my one article about body language morphed into a whole series. Seven in total.
At first I was just going to write about understanding body language because this is something that those with social anxiety disorder (SAD) might need help with. The less you have practiced trying to read nonverbal communication the harder it is to know what all those different body signals mean.
However, it quickly became clear to me that there were many other angles to cover.

Recent events have thrust Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke back into the spotlight years after his original difficulties with social anxiety disorder (SAD). During a game against the San Diego Padres, Greinke through a pitch that hit Padres player Carlos Quentin. One thing led to another, and soon Greinke was left with a broken collarbone and Quentin with an eight-game suspension.

Do you ever feel overwhelmed? Like there is too much to do and too little time? All the time?
I go through these phases I'm sure like anyone else. This month the to-do list is unmanageably long and time is short. Such is life with a not-yet-toddler. Actually he's not even crawling or sitting yet, so I am pretty much his only source of entertainment.
For those with social anxiety disorder (SAD), having a lot to do can also bring out an aspect of the disorder that doesn't get talked about too much. Procrastination!

Happy Easter Everyone! And Happy April Fool's Day right around the corner. Do you have any pranks planned?
I have, as they say in the world of writers, a bit of a block today. So, instead of tackling a new topic, reporting on a news item, or dealing with a human interest story, I will simply be doing a little roundup of all the new articles that were published on the site this month for those that might have missed one or more. Hope you enjoy them!
