A moment that changed me: meeting the rescue dog who comforted me through unfathomable loss | Shirley Manson

When I first held my dog Veela in my arms, I was grappling with my mother’s dementia, which was followed much too soon by her death. The teachings of my little red dog helped me surviveThe first time I rescued an animal was almost 15 years ago, while I was on hiatus from my band, Garbage, in 2007. Shuffling around Los Angeles with little to occupy my time and my catastrophic imagination, my husband suggested we might consider adopting a rescue dog from one of the local shelters. I was a little h...

The era of Covid ambivalence: what do we do as normalcy returns but Delta surges?

We imagined a gleeful summer of pandemic relief. Instead, new anxieties have replaced old onesWe were promised a Hot Vax Summer.The term – a riff on Hot Girl Summer, the hit 2019 summer single – emerged this spring as predictive shorthand for the (perhaps literally) orgiastic welcome of a post-vaccine reality. But, as might be expected of a phenomenon named for the last great summer anthem of a world before Covid-19, Hot Vax Summer connoted more than a gleeful exchange of fluids. It came to sign...

DMT: the strongest psychedelic you’ve never heard of

Psychedelic therapy shows promise where other mental health treatments have failed. DMT, an incredibly powerful drug, may be particularly useful in conjunction with therapy.The use of DMT is still highly experimental and possibly dangerous.

One of these is DMT, which is the subject of a slew of new studies about its potential use in treati...

Does the term “neurodiversity” do more harm than good?

There's been a recent push to label those with abnormal neuropsychological behaviors as "neurodiverse" rather than "autistic" or "dyslexic."This is an attempt to both remove the stigma attached to these abnormalities and also to call into question whether there is any such thing as a normal brain.The problem with getting rid of neuropsychological labels, however, is that it risks ignoring those individuals with developmental issues who need help. "Neurodiversity" is an umbrella term that encom...

No goals: why is it so hard to do something for enjoyment’s sake?

Being wholly goal-driven sets us up for constant comedowns, but some high achievers have found a solutionEndurance races would surely feel like they go on forever, even though hellish events such as Death Valley’s Badwater or the Marathon de Sables might “only” last two to six days. But the planning component can last all year, and for many, that’s where the real enjoyment lies. Related: 53C heat and melted shoes: is the 135-mile Badwater the world's toughest race?

Time to face the brutal truth: there’s no glamour at the bottom of a glass

Alcohol addiction has long been romanticised in films, TV shows, books and adverts. Let’s stop glossing over the destructive drudgery and sheer sorrow of the diseaseWhen I was 21, I decided I should make a proper effort to be a writer. I knew what I needed: countless films and television shows had told me. I needed a typewriter, fags and a bottle of whisky. I acquired them, and set myself up at the kitchen table. Yep, I thought. Now I am the business. I was Dorothy Parker, Carson McCullers, Raym...
