Below, are some recommendations for books, articles, podcasts, and videos that I hope will help. Sometimes when I'm feeling lonely and depressed, or anxious and worried, listening to someone else's story is enough to make me feel better. Other times, I want something more science-y that helps explain the why behind what I'm feeling. In this section, I've tried to include some links to resources that I have found helpful myself. 

May the resources here be of benefit.

None of the published works on this page are my own. I have tried link to the original work and credit the original author. Any impression that I am trying to take credit for this work is in error.
