Humans are terrible at diagnosing the causes of their emotions. It’s the name for the scrambled logic behind our wants, and our tendency to poorly align those wants with what we’ll actually enjoy. Miswanting afflicts more than our romantic feelings. We usually fail in predicting what will improve our future happiness, and by how much.

Friday says even standard exam procedures can traumatize victims further, like her daughter being abruptly asked to remove her clothes and put her feet in stirrups. The cultural insensitivity of non-tribal hospitals leads a lot of women not to report, Friday says. And without official reports, there's no way to bring charges. But Friday thinks more women might report with the help of an organization called Safe Stars.

Humans have a love/hate relationship with the cliques, clades, and classes that compartmentalize their world. But now that neuroscientists have used maps of people’s brains to accurately predict intelligence, reality creeps ever so much closer to fiction.

A score of physical and cultural factors made me ashamed at my inability to feel joy. Screening for postpartum mood disorders was not standard procedure in the hospital in which I gave birth, nor did my OB/GYN ask me about my mental health at my six-week check-up, and I doubt I would have made mention of my troubles even if he did.

Smith is an ecotherapist, a practitioner of nature-based exercises intended to address both mental and physical health. Which means she recommends certain therapies that trigger in me, as a medical doctor, more skepticism than serenity: Listen to birdsong, in your headphones if necessary. Start a garden, and think of the seeds’ growth as a metaphor for life transitions.

When new mom Hayden Panettiere sought help at a treatment center for postpartum depression, several outlets noted the similarity between her real-life storyline and that of her character on the show “Nashville,” country singer Juliette Barnes. In reality, Panettiere, the actress, is seeking help — and that means she better resembles the breakout role that introduced her to most fans, cell-rejuvenating cheerleader Claire Bennet in the show “Heroes.”
