Phobia
I have a phobia, but I won't say what, because I am afraid someone will subconsciously post about it. I'm sure I'm safe in this space from anyone doing it on purpose, though!
 
Of course, the Internet is always listening and might post an ad related to it. Anyways, so I was laying down with my husband and we were chatting (we take forever saying saying goodnight) and out of nowhere my phone says really loudly,
 
"Okay, I will put that URL in."
 
That alone is a spooky thing to hear.
 
 
So I go to pick my phone up. It is unlocked (It should be locked) and the Wikipedia page for my phobia is pulled up, with a large picture of the thing that gives me anxiety/makes me sick/scares me. Needless to say, I tossed my phone at my husband, cried and told him to get rid of it. He did, but the next time I went on the Internet, it was still there! UGH! I was not having it and told him I meant for him to delete it, not just minimize the app.
 
It made me cry like a baby! I don't know how to explan why. That's a phobia for you.
 
 
My husband thought it was so funny that my phone just up and did something so weird and random. I told him I thought it was supernatural and a spirit was messing with me because there is no way that your phone will pull up a page, unlock your phone and the page be something that you can't stand/are afraid of. I mean what is the chance? He apologized; I guess it is a phobia he can't understand. He learned his lesson for laughing at me...;)
 
 
Truthfully, the lesson he learned is how serious a phobia can be. He felt so bad because he hadn't realized at first how upset the situation made me.
 
I was seriously spooked. I even asked the "spirit" to please not do that again.
 
 
 Do you think they will listen?

Managing Your Anxiety or Depression

Are you feeling extremely sad but don’t know what the real reason is? Never prolong the distress by searching for the right treatment for depression and anxiety. You need to straighten up your emotions before they consume you. There is one way to help you solve such abhorrent feeling, and it’s best done with consultations from a psychoanalyst named Patrick Mahony.

 

So, what is depression? It’s actually a feeling of being sad or in a low mood. Many people often feel such emotions, and it can turn more potent with sadness that it becomes unbearable. This is when it is classified as clinical depression where someone experiencing it will need professional help.

 

When you suffer from such illness, your cognitive, emotional somatic and behavioral components are combined to create a feeling of fear, nervousness and too much worry. This will affect the body by creating headaches, chest paint, nausea and heart palpitations.

 

Although they are different, Patrick Mahony recommends that depression and anxiety be treated in the same manner. It is believed that those experiencing depression are sometimes anxious. The treatment from a psychoanalyst will make the patient relax sometime and develop trust with the expert. After which, he may need to visit his clinic a number of days a week or months or even years, until he’s fully recovered.

 

As a medical practitioner, Patrick Mahony is the best person to tell you what type of treatment is most suited for depression and anxiety. Some may be given antidepressant drugs for those suffering the two illnesses. His therapy sessions will guide the patient to help himself or herself cope with his or her condition. The patient is aided to overcome his or her lowest points where he is asked to calm down physically until everything turns normal.

 

If you start feeling the depression or anxiety, or is in the healing stage, you need Patrick Mahony to advise you with some suggested relaxation techniques and exercises to keep you focused and balanced. You should also watch out what you eat especially those chemicals that trigger such emotions. Be careful in what you choose to consume for your body. The best ways are to eat right with vegetables, fruits and lots of water.

Book Review - The True Nature of Energy - Transforming Anxiety into Tranquility by Diane Wing
The True Nature of Energy: Transforming Anxiety Into Tranquility - Diane Wing

How can we embrace nature to enhance our own spiritual well being?  This is a book that gives you very useful tips on how to achieve just that goal. Setting out specific exercises and thoughts to change your life, for example - How many negative influences are in your life? - This could be as simple as removing someone who only calls to pass on bad news or is always complaining to you.

There are exercises that will also help you to feel better about yourself and how to attract positive influences in your life.  It explains why certain places and events affect your mood and character. Why do you go to a certain place to feel better? For me it was a visit to the watch the tidal movements that has this effect.

This is a book that I would like to revisit time after time to gain the maximum results.  An enjoyable, informative read from the author.

Wilma Jean the Worry Machine
Wilma Jean the Worry Machine - Julia Cook,Anita DuFalla

Wilma Jean the Worry Machine, written by Julia Cook and Anita DuFalla, is an awesome book to read to students. Wilma Jean worries about everything concerning school, whether it’s getting called to work a math problem on the board to not having anyone to play with during recess. The teacher does an activity which allows the children to write worries they can and cannot control. By doing this activity, this helps Wilma Jean control her worries. It gives parents and teachers insight on what students worry about on a daily basis. Reading this book to the class will help them accept things that they can’t change! I can do an activity similar to what the teacher in the story did, have the students write out the worries that the can and cannot control.

 

5 stars

I'm Not Okay
Not book related <.< sorry.
 
 
TW: Mental Health & Suicide
 
Disclaimer: **I am not diagnosed (as an adult) for my mental health disorder(s), but I don’t need a doctor to write on paper to tell me I have depression & social anxiety/general anxiety. I don't deny that it would be helpful to know my exact disorders so I could get treatment/therapy, however, we have no insurance yet.(soon! crossing fingers) As a child I was put on antidepressants, so I was diagnosed with something at one point. These are my thoughts and opinions on mental health, and my own personal experiences. Everyone’s mental health journeys are different. End the stigma! Talk about mental health disorders and invisible illnesses!**
 
---
 
The nitty gritty about having a mental health disorder is that it can be so up in the air. I never know if a day will be good or bad. I guess you get so used to the feeling of sadness, random outburst of crying and dark thoughts, that it feels normal, and you don’t notice it get gradually worse. When you are buried so deep, you don’t care about taking care of yourself, so you are in a vicious cycle that is hard to break out of. You stop taking care of your hygiene, stop caring about eating enough or sleeping enough. Or maybe you eat too much (binge) and sleep too much, or maybe you don't sleep enough! Executive dysfunction doesn’t help, of course.
 
I think my normal state of feeling is sort of a numbness or a nothingness. It is really scary, to be honest. My emotions, even love for people or passion for my interests can be turned off on a dime and I have no feelings. I can be in the worst meltdown and then stop on that dime and freeze up and think or say “never mind. I’m fine.” I believe that is one of the reasons as a kid when I would cry or “throw a fit” and just stop out of nowhere, my mom joked about me being good at crocodile tears and that I should be an actress.
 
I am not sure I fully know what true happiness feels like because it is always clouded with dark, depressing thoughts. I don’t think people understand how you can be depressed or have a mental health disorder, but also have days of “wellness” If you smile, laugh or act goofy, they think “oh, yay, you’re cured now.” Even worse, they believe nothing was ever wrong with you. Some people actually believe depression and anxiety is not a real thing. People with mental health disorders or neurological disorders have become very good at masking/faking in order to fit in. Thank about that.
 
Anyone can have an invisible illness. The number of people in the entertainment industry who have died from suicide is an indicator of this. They are rich, famous, usually well-loved, yet they are ill, sad, probably feel alone in a crowd of people. They get so much attention because they are famous and a lot of it is negative from people who can’t comprehend how someone rich and famous who has “everything” can end their life.
 
You can have everything and feel like you have nothing. It doesn’t matter who you are, mental health disorders and invisible illnesses do not discriminate. When someone who suffers from a mental health disorder dies by suicide, they did not commit anything, no crime. They lost a battle with their long-suffering illness. We shouldn’t judge anybody. We should be there for each other, even strangers.
 
If someone looks sad, ask if they are okay, or if they want to talk. Smile more, at friends and family, even at strangers. A smile or heartfelt compliment could change a person’s day for the better. These are things I know, but I don’t always practice them, because I am stuck in my own downward spiral. It is hard to dig out of that hole when nobody is around and your emotions come on strong and then sometimes shut off altogether.
 
I do nothing, at least that is how it would appear to people who don’t understand me. I don’t have a job. #1 Social anxiety & depression #2 Chronic pain makes it limited to what work I could actually do.
 
I sleep, eat, get on the computer and live vicariously through so many people on YouTube. It is like a coping mechanism, it makes me feel better, or sometimes emotionless, which is better than crippling despair, I guess? I go through phases of what type of videos I like. Sometimes about books, sometimes more “real talk” sort of videos where people just share their everyday lives. Lately, I’ve been into watching true crime and ghost hunting videos.
 
Sometimes I read books. Sometimes I play games on my phone. Sometimes I mess with my doll collection. Yes, so, to the outside world, I do nothing. But something very big that I am doing is LIVING. I might not have a paying job, but it is a JOB just to keep myself alive. I would be lying if I said I didn't have suicidal thoughts.
 
I’m sorry if you don’t understand or if that makes you sad. It’s just the truth. Thinking of death, wanting to die and believing the world would be better off without me are just some of the dark things in my brain. My mental health and chronic pain are huge factors to these feelings. I am more inclined to think about dark and morbid things. My mind tells me nobody cares about me, it nags at me that I am a burden to people. I do know this isn’t true, but sometimes I can’t understand why people would care about me, let alone love me.
 
I don’t hardly reach out to friends and family because of being depressed and social anxiety, but how many times do they reach out to me? (And I mean heartfelt reaching out, not tagging me in a spam post or liking a post, or something.) Everyone is dealing with their own stuff, I get it. Also, understand when you do reach out to someone with depression, they might not respond at first or they might not know how to respond. If you care about them or love them, don’t stop letting them know.
 
Just... I’m lonely. I miss the time when it was so simple to make friends and maintain them. I’m not okay, but I am trying to cope.
