Apologies for the late posting. Avrum has Strep Throat, and is curled up in a ball, waiting for the antibiotics to work their magic.

Shout out to Lorna’s clinical supervisor, Carolyn Jacobs, Ph.D., whose wise words about friendship were paraphrased in this podcast. http://www.socalbowentheory.com/
