Dear Dr. Ted:

I woke up this morning and was thinking about the phases of grief and how they are playing such an enormous part in my life these days after the loss of my father. I have heard you talk about the phases of grief and how acceptance is not an easy process and has so many different meanings. Can you say more, as I’m finding acceptance to be a tough pill to swallow?

Dear Dr. Ted:
 
I have encountered many losses this year including the loss of a parent, the pandemic, loss of job, loss of friends, and the pain of watching a world hurting, fearing, and dividing. You have talked about compounded loss, and I am aware that is what’s going on, but I’m interested in why after a loss there seem to be no highs or lows in my world. I look out the window, and I don’t see colors I see grey. It is almost as if everything is running through a filter and not quite getting to me nor me connecting with other people, nature, pets, or experiences. I’m worried this is forever and I will just have this feeling of once removed. What do you have to say to that Doc?

Plastic waste is a growing existential threat polluting our land and water, but an international group of scientists are working on new ways to make - and break - plastics.

Gosh, darn it. We've all been through a lot, and it's still happening. Life in the United States is quite exhausting these days and it feels like no Bluebirds of Happiness will be landing here anytime soon. Even life out here in the Southwest isn't as blissful as it used to be.
