    over-medicating the nation

    “If you look closely here, you will see Oscar is the only one standing up. He’s the only one moving! We can’t get him to sit still. He’s in the bathroom every ten seconds, he drinks water like a fish! We just want the best for him, we love him, we really do and he’s a sweet kid…. We are positive your son has attention deficit disorder, and may benefit from some additional help to stay on task. We are happy we were able to spot this so early on.”

    Brain Shivers

    You feel like you’re coming down when you haven’t taken anything unorthodox. My personal experience meant I lost my peripheral vision and couldn’t access any higher level brain functions. It feels like you’re melting and that you’re only halfway there.

    ADHD In A Child

    ADHD In A Child

    ADHD, or in other words Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. I also like to call it the disorder that is often given by parents and teachers when they can't control the kid in the environment. Yes, there are some cases where the diagnosis is correct. Based on the children's behavior, learning patterns and more, it's easy to diagnose by far. I would like to tell my story on how my son was recently diagnosed with having ADHD at age 9. I of course will keep his name something different to protect him. We will just call him Jake in this case.

    I'm Marvellously Medicated Darling

    In this new mental health revolution we often speak about 'the 5 top foods you should be eating for your mental health' or the fact that you aren't a yogi master is the reason why you have crippling anxiety. Although I am a huge advocate for anything active or routines you can do to support being mentally healthy, I want to share my experience with medication.

    We Need to Talk About this One Problem that People with Mental Illness Are Experiencing

    Last night, I had one of the worst mental breakdowns ever in my life. My whole world just seems to have crumbled at my feet; this is the worst I’ve ever felt, like darkness just overcame my vision and all I see is black. My mind just started racing; most things that I don’t worry about, whether it is bills, budgeting for the month, even passing thoughts such as personal problems and things I usually have control over mentally are magnified 10x.

    How I Changed My Opinion About Medically Assisted Treatment

    How I Changed My Opinion About Medically Assisted Treatment

    After being in and out of treatment centers for heroin addiction and in and out of mental health facilities for bipolar disorder, I had formulated strong misconceptions about both the addiction industry and the mental health field. I thought there was nothing that would work for me—no pharmaceutical pill could take away the mental health symptoms I was dealing with. No type of therapy would be able to keep me sober, and I certainly wasn't going to agree to medically assisted treatment.
