I fell into all this entirely by accident, when attachment disorder hit me upside the head. Just as the latest brain science on how it works and how to heal was flooding in. So I’ve been going a bit ape (above), multiplying content here like rabbits — faster than I’ve been able to index it so you can find what you need. (Click on pics for clear shots; my software’s glitched.)
My webmaster finally spanked me (metaphorically speaking, of course) and said “There’s too much good info on here, with no way to find it! Re-index the place so that people can find your book, your Featured Topics, and your News Blogs of the Week.” So here’s a new page to help you find stuff:
Book: The first 30% of my psychiatric autobio “Don’t Try This at Home” is posted on the New Book page here. I’ve got 60% of it written, but all this trauma and brain science news has kept me tied up blogging, instead of “book-ing.” I feel so much better now than I did during the events in the book, events which got me where I am.
Dr. Peter A. Levine talks about how prey like an impala, running in full fight-flight, will suddenly go into freeze, pass out and keel over — an instant before a predator such as a cheetah gets a claw in. Any mammal’s vagus nerve will deck us like that when the nerve “neurocepts” overwhelming danger in the environment — no thinking involved.
I used to feel like that impala; the world was a dangerous place and I’d go into freeze… Not anymore! So who wants to write about 2011 when all this great news is happening in 2014? OK, ok, I’ll crack down and get the book onto Amazon soon.

If you find the site useful, do remember: I’m not a PhD studying “those people” with attachment disorder. I’m just a paramecium writing about how it feels to be a paramecium.
Kathy’s blogs expand on her book “DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME: The Silent Epidemic of Attachment Disorder—How I accidentally regressed myself back to infancy and healed it all.” Watch for the continuing series each Friday, as she explores her journey of recovery by learning the hard way about Attachment Disorder in adults, adult Attachment Theory, and the Adult Attachment Interview.
