    The Summer Top Up Sale

    The Summer Top Up Sale

    Keep some moisturising cream on hand for those hot summer days in the sun. The best place to buy it: The Body Shop. I did some research to determine how much I saved on my fine luxury items that I had bought in The Body Shop summer sale; I had to do a bit of maths to know what the percentage was of each product, I do have to point out that I did have to use a calculator to work it out. Never got on with maths in the first place; plus the receipt didn't really have much of the original price on it, so I had to look it up for starters.

    My Friend: Acne

    My Friend: Acne

    Acne: I've had it half of my life. I'm past hearing the reasons behind my acne from unqualified people with perfect skin; you wear too much makeup, you need to wash your face more, you need to let your skin breathe, you eat too unhealthily. Please, we've heard it all a million times.

    A Definition of "Heroic Measures"

    A Definition of "Heroic Measures"

    Heroic measures. What do these words mean? In a hospital, when this phrase is heard, it means that if a patient's body tries to quit, a group of people will do everything in their power to keep the person alive. The group of people is the "code team". There are doctors, nurses, nurse's aides, x-ray techs, and respiratory therapists on the code team. Their goal is to keep you alive, according to your wishes. It will be assumed that these are your wishes unless there is a POLST or DNR in your chart, signed by yourself and your physician. Basically, A POLST/DNR says, "Let me die naturally, according to the function of my body". It means "no heroic measures".

    Struggle

    Struggle

    We all hear the saying don't judge until you walked in my shoes. My struggle has been a long one. I don't think anyone has seen my real struggle. Because the struggle is within me not just on the outside of me. It's the hardest thing; I must explain. Let's go back to 2006. This is where the struggle got super bad. I was in the position of trying to find my place and pushed into a place. I started drinking and cutting myself. I felt super crazy, depressed, and didn't know what to do. This was my first run in with a therapist. I started going when there was on at my high school. I felt like I was not making any progress, so I stopped going. I pulled away from everything I loved doing. Kept looking at my scars and thought I was ugly. I got teased because of my limp. I got teased because my hand doesn't work like everyone else's. I already had a hard time with my mom being sick. I just lost an uncle that year. My world was crashing in on me.

    Everyone Wants Happiness

    In life, we all seem to desire our own individual things. It may be about money, family, romance, friendships, anything to do with ourselves physically, or an ideal career. However, everything mentioned above comes down to us all desiring the exact same thing. Which is happiness.

    8 Tools to Break the Negativity Cycle

    8 Tools to Break the Negativity Cycle

    The more I experience and learn of PMDD, the more I think its treatment may actually be in the mind, not by altering it with prescription drugs like anti-depressants or even, necessarily, traditional “talk” therapies, but through retraining it to think different thoughts and take on new habits, to the extent we can, at any rate.

    When in Doubt, Write it Out

    When in Doubt, Write it Out

    There are few things I can think of that have helped me over the years more than simply writing out whatever difficulty was going on for me at any given time. Whether by handwriting, typing, or talk-to-speech it can be so much easier to work through any issue by simply externalizing our thoughts and feelings for our own benefit.
