I have a B.A. in creative writing from San Francisco State. Can people please donate? I'm very low-income. I need to start an escape the Ferengi plan.
How To Cope With OCD During a Pandemic
The pandemic is causing me and everybody else high stress. OCD is aggravated during times of stress. I know that I can stay well by avoiding people, and wearing a mask. Masks go a long way to stopping germs from getting through. Wearing a mask is a great way of preventing illness, but not everybody is wearing one so far as I can see. Never mind the general incompetent handling of the pandemic from a head of state who now has the illness. My OCD germ phobia is sky high, and I don't know about anybody else who is dealing with similar situations.
Better Ways of Treating Sociopathy
Treating sociopathy is all about making them get into therapy in order to learn empathy for others. A sociopath in treatment has to be trained to look at themselves very hard, and be like, hey, I'm a jerk. Remember, readers, I do not have a degree, in anything save a BA in English, and so I'm writing this as pure satire. Narcissistic people have an inflated sense of arrogant importance which means they are hard to treat because they don't like therapy, not when therapy forces one to admit they are "wrong" or to see and air out your weaknesses dirty laundry. In a job interview, a sociopath would skirt around the question "what are your biggest weakness?" Or "what is your biggest weakness?"
Treating All My Mental Health Problems
I would like to treat all my mental health problems at a rehabilitation facility in Los Angeles called Bridges To Recovery. For this to happen I have to make my own money, and move out. I'd rent a house in LA to start with, so I can put my things there, then live at the facility for like a year while taking online classes, and starting a Bachelor's in film and television and an MFA program next at UCLA. I don't know if I'm stable enough to go to school if I freak out at Greyschool's workload.
What Are The Symptoms Of Agoraphobia?
Agoraphobia is a schizoaffective thing, since you feel like everybody is watching you, thinking negative things about you, and talking about you in general. This is merely a schizoaffective symptom that gets way better with medication, not to mention getting your head out of your hat. Agoraphobia is a thing, it makes people not feel well, it makes one paranoid, and only because it is the way it is. I also have anxiety and such; because I have multiple anxiety disorders give or take the way my body is built. I have PTSD, OCD, and generalized anxiety. I may feel well enough to do occupational therapy Zoom groups just in case.
Why We Should Eliminate Sociopathy From the Gene Pool
Eliminating sociopathy from the gene pool, now that is a concept. If we could rewrite the genes of a baby at conception, this idea could work. It is one way to treat genetic disabilities at any rate, and since I have 22q, Velocardiofacial syndrome, it is a way to treat this disorder that researchers at major clinics like Stanford are working on. Narcissism or sociopathic spectrum mental illness is not always something that you are born with but rather it is something that a person can develop due to something that happens at the age of 2 or 3, due to parenting styles.
How Is Agoraphobia Tied to Schizoaffective?
I had to go to school with obvious agoraphobia related anxiety. Not being treated for schizoaffective comes form the depths of hell, and is very stressful. Medication is great because it helps you with stress management. Well, mental focus on breathing can also help with stress management. I have schizoaffective, which means I am schizophrenic and bipolar at the same time. I also have OCD. OCD will be something I will cover in other articles this month. I have many anxiety related disorders I'm trying to control, live with better, and contain but I have seen that I need to put myself in the hands of mental health rehabilitation centers in Los Angeles, which there are plenty of.
Environmental Problems I Run Into While Gardening
My phone's camera is broken or something so I can't send pictures but I can describe it, as my zucchini is very tall. My tomato plant is surviving somehow, two of them. The small one is growing straight now as it was bending to the left while my beefsteak tomato is growing tall. I'm seeing that the hot weather and rain is useful but the heat sooner or later might fry my plants. I need to grow them in a mini greenhouse in order to make sure they survive winter. I have seen some greenhouses on eBay and Amazon.
I guessed at my own autoimmune disorder, caused by none other than 22q, my genetic disability, just this year, only because I was wondering what it was. I pestered my endocrinologist about it, and she finally came out and said I had autoimmune thrombocytopenia which is low blood platelets in plain English, a medical condition where the white and red blood cell count is low. There are nowhere near enough books to read about this condition. Apparently not enough blood platelets are made in the bone marrow, they breakdown more in the bloodstream, and in the spleen or liver. What scares me the most about this condition is that it means shaking off viruses is hard, although I have not had a cold or flu in two years since the last one, which lasted a week?
The Drake Equation
N = R*FpNeFlFiFcL. This equation is known as the Drake Equation, also known as the Green Bank Equation, referring to Green Bank, West Virginia when it was first put together in 1961. It is not necessary to use the term "discovered" but rather built only because scientists were piecing it together as a way to find the number or N of technically advanced societies in the Milky Way. This equation was coined at a conference on the "search for extraterrestrial intelligence," held at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, at Green Bank, West Virginia R* is about the rate stars form that become suited to having intelligent life evolve on them.
The Piri Reis Map
Ancient maps have startling similarities to the way the coastlines are shaped for now. Antarctica may have been free of ice three million years ago, a fact gleaned from the Cenozoic unicellular algae in 1983. Earth-crust displacement moved Antarctica further south by two thousand miles, something discovered in 1953 by Professor Charles Hapgood, a teacher at Keene College in New Hampshire. Antarctica was free of ice until 4,000 B.C, a thousand years before Egypt and Sumerian civilization started to explore the sea. The PIri Reis map was drawn with accurate Antarctica contours, since Antarctica was discovered three hundred years after the map was drawn.
The Aurora Crash of 1897
On April 17th, 1897, 84 years before I was born on April 16th, 1981, a large, silver and cigar-shaped object dropped low in altitude reaching the small town of Aurora, Texas, which was situated twenty miles northwest of Fort Worth. The UFO had its equipment falling apart, which is probably what accounted for the low altitude, given the way UFOs crash land on Earth all the time, and this was at least 50 years before Roswell. The UFO crashed into a windmill, with debris being scattered over multiple acres. Years later, when journalist Jim Maars went to investigate this crash, he was shown the airship pilot's grave, which was not full size, but rather child-size, as this grave had a rock headstone, with a design like a large V on one side, and inside the V shape were three small circles, resembling portholes.
UFOs I Have Seen
I've seen plenty of UFOs, starting when I was 12, and saw the Catalina lights, in a row one minute, stringing itself into a spinning circle the next, and disappearing since we were taking a cruise to Catalina, and Ensenada, Mexico. In Spain, I saw a UFO when I was in Muros, Galicia, at the beach sitting in the sun when I saw something in the sky that didn't look like a plane, but like a ship. The term "cargo ship" popped into my head, I sat there thinking, where did that come from. This was many years ago, when I was on vacation visiting cousins.
