BehindTheMedspeak: Can the iPhone do psychotherapy?


"Candorville" by Darrin Bell.

There's something to this.

A person can only focus on one thing at a time.

Changing that focus — especially if it's involuntary — is in many cases the key to resolution of emotional disruption.

Anything that works is worth considering, especially if the downside is minimal or nonexistent.

No psychiatric medication yet has been invented without side effects, in some cases worse than the condition being treated.

In your face on Monday morning.

What can I say?

From the website:


Each package contains the following business card


right in the poop! When they see the front of the card they will have to open the bag, releasing the nasty aroma, then dig it out of the poop only to find this


on the back.

Q. Can I send a custom message in the poop?

A. No, for legal reasons we do not allow customer-created notes to be sent in the packages.


More information here.

Testimonials here.

From $12.95, depending on type and amount.
