This week I had the opportunity to see Mean Girls the Musical in New York City. Because I love anything Tina Fey does, I fully expected to like it. I was wrong; I LOVED it. It contained the themes from her blockbuster movie of the same name: human sexuality, bullying, hierarchical structures of the animal kingdom, and the possibility that people can change.

The Impact on Your Health from Stressful Childhood Events.
Have you had trauma in your childhood? I’m Dr. Keesha Ewers. I help people understand the meaning of trauma, and the impact that it has on your adult life.
One of the things that people say to me is “No, I didn’t have any trauma. I had a really good childhood.” I would like you to understand that everybody has had trauma; it just depends on where your bar is set.
You can have capital-T trauma, or you can have lower-case-t trauma.
Capital-T trauma is going to be sexual abuse, domestic violence, physical, psychological, verbal abuse, neglect; all the scenarios that were described in the adverse childhood experiences study that was done between 1995 and 1997 that I wrote about it in my book, “Solving the Autoimmune Puzzle.”
