Tyler… I came across this on Altassian’s blog first… In a good-natured way I chuckled because if you work in IT (I have for over 20 years now), you probably have some form of mental health ‘issues’. I think there is something unique about the way our minds are wired that makes us successful in IT, but also makes us susceptible to mental health issues.

Take some time to read the following:

I have other friends who suffered from anxiety, and we share some common experiences with dietary changes really helping. There is emerging science which shows that gut flora (the bacteria in our gut) actually communicates to the brain. The fascinating possibility is that the same dynamic which creates food cravings might also contribute to what we otherwise consider mental health issues…

I am a charter member of the pocket-protector set, but old enough to make fun of them and otherwise have a healthy skepticism of tech. https://goo.gl/2z5Snr
