Borderline Personality Disorder
I can go for weeks at a time, occasionally months without feeling the shift. For anyone who ever wants to know what Borderline Personality Disorder feels like, it feels like pain ultimately, often chronic and varying in body location from person to person.
What is the meaning of life? We have always been unable to impartially address this question, nevertheless, plenty of people have discovered solace in various philosophies and ideologies to stifle the uneasiness that it causes.
Four Films for Psychological Analysis
It is my goal within this editorial to remain neutral and "on the fence" (that is not to choose a side, team, or camp) in regards to the nature/nurture debate that psychologists have described and presented to philosophers and medical professionals. I am familar with the debate enough to provide a brief explanation of the teams. Team Nature would present the benefits of human connection, the family unit, genetic factors, and examples of Naturalism for evidence that appear without technological assistance. Team Nurture would present the benefits of human invention including technology, memory (human and computer), and the necessity of certain provisions and comforts for human development. Having quickly defined the "teams" (although there are many books and articles that give a more in-depth explanation and understanding of the debate) I would like to share with you my thoughts on four films that make me think about the debate: "I am Mother" (directed by Grant Sputore) and "mother!" (directed by Darren Aronofsky), the film "Harry Potter" (book written by J.K. Rowling) and the film "Joker" (directed by Todd Phillips). These films will provide various viewpoints for my "fence" standpoint in this discussion. Team Nature will comprise the films "Harry Potter" and "mother!" whereas Team Nurture consists of the films "I am Mother" and "Joker". All four films use scary and dark themes to prove points for their side of the debate. I remain on the "fence" and do not choose a team because I believe and agree with the validity of all the points made by both sides of the argument.

6 Fun Facts About Synesthesia
Have you ever said something to a friend or family member that they thought was really strange? Like maybe that a certain song sounded orange or that you could ‘see’ music? Or that the number 5 is green to you? If so, you may have Synesthesia, a neurological condition that scientists are still trying to figure out more about it and why it happens. The word means to blend the five senses. People with synesthesia (known as synesthetes), experience the world differently – to put it simply, think of it like crossed wires in their brains – their senses are hooked up to each other in weird ways where one sensory source produces another result – such as tasting sounds or hearing colours. There are many different types of synesthesia such as Chromesthesia – where a person hears a sound and sees a colour associated with it (high pitched sounds are often brighter colours and lower sounds are darker). Different people may see a certain sound as a different colour. One of the most common forms of this condition is grapheme-color synesthesia– where people will see letters or numbers with different colours. For example ‘A’ might be yellow and 12 might be a shade of blue.
I woke up crying. I feel my hospital bed moving. “What happened?”. I thought to myself. I stand up. I see my mom and I hug her, she looked so tired. I cried a little bit as the nurses transporting me waited patiently for me to get back on. They moved me to a different area, where the adults were. I was just 18 y/o so I was in peds when I first came in. “What were you thinking?” Asked my mother. Now I was confused. Was she really about to lecture me about suicide at the hospital? Can I go home first? Ugh! “Why did u attack the nurse?”. “I didn’t attack any nurse, what are you talking about?” I replied. I don’t know where my aunt went. I wasn’t sure of what time it was so I guess it must’ve been pretty late. “Yes you did! She came to put the IV in & you pinned her against the wall, smacked her, & choked her”. I couldn’t believe what she was saying. Hell, to this day; I can’t believe it. I cried harder. “Luckily she didn’t want to press charges”. “Where’s Beth?” I asked again. “Home with the girls”. I was calm now. She was home with my baby & Diana. I thought to myself, “How could I attack a nurse?” A different nurse came over to tell my mom she couldn’t stay because the hospital wouldn’t allow it since I was no longer in pediatrics. Great. We said our goodbyes and she promised she’d be back in the morning. Time to rest.
We walked into the service room. There was a line leading up to her casket. Everyone was sad, wearing all black. Consoling each other When we got to the front, that I observed her, I couldn’t believe it. How could such a beautiful young lady take her life away, she was just a teenager. I could see the bruises on her neck from the rope and I really observed her well. Pam looked tired & the room was full of emotions. Here go the waterfalls again. Crying seemed to be all I did. I felt weird for a second, looked at my mom & told her I needed a restroom. We walked out and found one in the lobby not far from the service room. I ran in a stall & threw up. I got so sick I told my mom we had to go. I couldn’t go back in there. I began feeling weird again. I didn’t feel like myself anymore.
