For many years I used to find Ruby Wax used to portray the typical image of an American woman - loud, brash, in your face etc.
I saw an article where she described the psychological issues she had over the years and how these had affected her life and influenced her public persona and she was going to take a University degree to understand more about the causes of mental health and how the brain works.
Post degree she got a Master and a Doctorate and started speaking publicly about how the brain becomes injured, the development of neuro pathways, plasticity and mental health, She is really, really good about it, and speaks not only from her learning but also personal experience in a non accademic way. If I had a choice between all the NeuroPsychologists, I have seen and Ruby Wax I would plump for her.
Anyway the subject of the post is that Ruby Wax has a UK tour where she has a public performance on her new theme of "frazzled" and mindfulness. I haven't seen the show yet and just about managed to get 2 tickets in a local theatre and they all seem to be nearly sold out. It may be of interest to some of the forum members.
