Do you know what sun depression is?
We know that character determines a person's life. If introverts tend to think badly when encountering things, they are more likely to suffer from depression. In fact, depression has become one of the most common mental illnesses in today's society, and the number of people suffering from depression is rising every year, especially in the workplace. what is the reason? Depression is mainly caused by biological factors, such as the decrease of some important neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. This leads to neuroendocrine abnormalities in the human body, leading to depression.
A person who loves to lose his temper, in addition to negative explanations, he must also actively explain for the purpose of promoting psychological construction
Yesterday’s graffiti text wrote, “A person does not lose his temper because of accidents, but because he is such a person.” Explained from the physiological structure of the brain and the theory of personality traits, it can be better to empathize with this person.
I bought 75 pounds of TSA confiscated scissors from eBay. It was 2008 and I was preparing for my MFA thesis project. I was in NYC completing my creative degree 7 years after the Twin Towers had fallen and TSA had made a bunch of new rules to protect us all from the threat of “Weapons of Mass Destruction.” Does having our scissors and other sharp objects confiscated from our bags, suitcases and purses help keep us all safe?
Lost Soul Found
At 19 years old my life ended and my journey began. With a history of Bipolar in the family my father thought it would be an excellent idea to prescribe me an SSRI to cope with the depression brought on by a surprise divorce and a cheating girlfriend. 18 pills and a fuck load of meth later I died. This would be the first of many.
Being agents of pure, unfiltered chaos, every kid wants to cut stuff up. Forget scribbling on the walls or finger painting the kitchen table; cutting things up is the real attraction. It’s the draw of the forbidden! After all, it’s not like you’re ever denied crayons as a child. But scissors? Forget it, kiddo.
Weighing on the mind
I start with the admission that some make proudly, some make shamefully, that I make somewhere between the two. I am fat. Chubby. Curvy. Overweight.
To me words are persnickety; they never string themselves in an appropriate manner. I struggle to express myself accurately aloud, to trudge through the conflicting barrage of emotions and make a symphony of coherence. I envy those who can. The past year has brought a wave of anxiety, loneliness, and doubt, but I prefer to work out my sentiments physically. Perhaps that’s why I’ve picked up countless crafts. Just in the last year and a half I have taken up embroidery, clay crafting, sewing, painting, diamond painting - you name it.
Per Therapist's Request
I have OCD. Yes, I'm obsessive-compulsive, but not in the way the mainstream media would have you believe. My room is unkempt at its best moments, the pictures I hang on my walls somehow always come out crooked, and I am a big believer that most germs won't kill me. While being diagnosed this year, I've learned that there is no cookie-cutter standard to having OCD.
You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink
“You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.” This saying seemed to haunt me growing up. It followed me from school to school and teacher to teacher. I was seen as a perpetual case of unfulfilled potential. My mind was a chaotic combination of a strong will to succeed and a complete lack of motivation. I always knew there were things I wanted to achieve but when it came down to it, I was unable to put in the necessary hours or effort to do so. As a result, I left in my wake a sea of unfinished projects and uninspiring grades. That was until my life was altered by an ADHD diagnosis at the age of 19.
Introduction Experiencing abuse and neglect during childhood can cause a person to have difficulty growing into an adult. They find comfort in toxic and unstable relationships, acquire maladaptive coping skills, have self-internalized feelings, co-dependency issues, etc. This stems from the need to be nurtured, loved, and supported. How many of you can relate? How many of you never received that? I promise more people relate to this than you can imagine. I know you are supposed to grow and learn how to care for yourself, but how can you do that when you have no idea where to start? Many were neglected as children, raped, mentally and physically abused, and molested. How do you grow emotional intelligence when you were too busy trying to survive? Individuals who endured this did not get to experience a real childhood.

My Darling Daughter Sophie
