A new school year often means new challenges for gender-expansive youth, especially those who are about to start at a new school, or who are expressing their gender differently than when classes ended the year before. Students often question where they can turn for help at their school, and what outside resources are available.

As I start to write, my mind goes back and forth between the unsettling atmosphere of right now and the comfort that presence of a partner and family brings. We are all dealing with the fallout from the travel ban, the transgender ban, climate denials, white supremacist meetings, and need I say more? It is the undoing of progress in all these areas that create yes, anxiety and depressive thoughts in most of us. Add to that the global reputation of the US, and it is hard not to want to dig a hole and crawl in it.

We’ve all heard the saying, “You can’t give from an empty cup.” And to be honest, it used to drive me crazy. I never understood the concept of taking care of yourself, so that you can give your best effort in everything you do. Unfortunately, for most of the population, this concept is non-existent. Most of us juggle many responsibilities and aren’t taking care of ourselves – physically, mentally, or emotionally. Having experienced total depletion on all three of these, I want to give you my top-five tips for making sure I’m taking care of my needs every day. I didn’t understand the importance of these until I could no longer be of service to my family, job, and especially to myself.

As a practicing urologist, as well as the author of The Ultimate Guide to Male Sexual Health: How to Stay Vital at Any Age (second edition), my professional activities have centered around the diagnosis and treatment of urologic cancers. I’ve been a longtime supporter of the LGBTQ community, and during my 30-year practice, it has been my clinical observation that the basic psychological, physiological, emotional, and physical aspects of sexuality are blind to gender identity and sexual orientation. Although my book mainly addresses male sexuality and the penis, my hope is that it will help all readers “with a penis in their lives.”

For the most part, I live a pretty healthy lifestyle. I exercise 30 minutes four to five days a week and I eat more vegetables at breakfast than most people do all day. I don’t mind eating the same things every day. My breakfasts and lunches are standard and I add some variety at dinner. While I try to limit my sweets I am not very successful. I can plow through a box of Oreos and Reese’s are my kryptonite.

By now, just about everyone in the US knows that a total eclipse of the sun will be visible over 14 states in the early afternoon of Monday, August 21st. Unfortunately, too few people know how to observe the eclipse safely or understand how important it is to protect their vision. And to make matters worse, the market has been flooded with dangerous fake “eclipse glasses.”
