#417018 Kindness

Posted by eddy1886 on 14 January 2017 - 02:10 PM

On here we are dealing all of us constantly with mood swings...This has an affect on what people write....Its the nature of mental ill health...

 

We are all up and down like yo yos....

 

I actually think no one on here intends to upset another intentionally...Often what we write can be misinterpreted...

 

The answer for us all is to SUGGEST ways to recover to each other but at the same time NOT to discount what has worked for others....

 

The only 2 things that bug me about this forum is the "You will only recover PROPERLY if you do this" attitude and the "Meds are bad" attitude....EVERYBODY on here is different...As a result EVERYBODY on here will get better in different ways....The words "Open Mind" come into play here...We all have to be open to suggestions from others BUT we cannot shoot down something that has worked for somebody else because we believe it to be wrong or because our own experience has been different....

 

Emma dont worry too much...Auto is a good member with lots of vital experience...Im sure he just misinterpreted what you wrote...

 

Go easy on each other people...We ALL need each other on here....One of these days one of us is gonna discover the cure that works for every single person in the world that has DP.....Until then we need to look after each other....God knows most of the doctors and shrinks and therapists dont really care too much for us...

My newest 240 Litre Aquarium Aquscape...Everyhting inside is real and from nature...Rootwood, Rocks, Sand, Plants etc...Next will be the fish....

 

Water is slightly cloudy...This is normal for a brand new setup...Its a bacteria explosion...It will clear pretty quickly....As soon as I add fish and the water clears I will update with a new better pic...

#415033 multiple intelligences?

Posted by eddy1886 on 08 January 2017 - 03:50 AM

Every single human mind on the entire planet no matter how sick or disabled or "retarded" (f*****g hate that word) or mentally challenged the individual might be is an amazing mind....

 

EVERYBODYS mind is powerful and each individual has the power to do things with their mind that nobody else can...

 

I think therefore I am....what an amazing statement !!!!

 

The problem with society today is that if your not a brain surgeon or a rocket scientist you are considered inferior...What a load of bull...

Can a brain surgeon fix a car engine? Can a rocket scientist cook gourmet meals? More than likely not!!!

 

Everybody contributes to the world in their own individual way...It may just even be a small contribution but its priceless in the great scheme of things that is human existence and survival....

 

There is no such thing as a dumb question or a bad idea.....That is how humans have evolved and learned...We f****d up and asked stupid questions which lead to great discoveries!!!

 

Maybe its just me being fantastical but i believe every single last one of us has amazing capabilities....And NOBODY is useless!!!

We all need to reduce the stress in our lives (no matter how subtle it may seem)

#412522 is alcohol really a drug?

Posted by eddy1886 on 31 December 2016 - 03:19 AM

is alcohol really a drug? i don't know. it's strange. everyone drinks alcohol at dinner time and like...it doesn't bother me so much.

Drink alot of it and then decide  ;-)

 

It absolutely is a drug and probably the most dangerous one in the world because its legal and tolerated socially in most countries...

 

Next time your in the hospital ask a nurse or doctor how many patients are in there because of alcohol related accidents or illnesses...You will be shocked...In fact the other socially tolerated drug (smoking cigarettes) probably fills the rest of the hospital beds....

 

Both are seriously bad for your health....Although "very very moderate" drinking is ok and will do you no harm...

 

Here in Ireland in hospitals we have what we nicknamed the heart operation assembly line...Its just person after person being lined up to have either heart or bypass surgery (I watched my own dad go through a quadruple bypass operation) They all have 2 big things in common...The smoked cigarettes and drank excessively....Alot of these people are some of the thinnest people you could ever meet so obesity plays less of a roll....Its the drinking and smoking that does most of the damage...




#412242 Thudding sensations in head

Posted by eddy1886 on 30 December 2016 - 01:14 PM

I also often experience the tightening scalp sensation...kinda feels like theres things crawling in your hair....

 

Head tensions and odd sensations all over the scalp and inside the skull are very common with DP

#411826 Severe memory problems

Posted by eddy1886 on 29 December 2016 - 01:23 PM

It makes learning, studying and reading  very difficult.....Anything that basically involves reading pages and pages of text is a basic waste of time...

 

To get any new information to stick nowadays I have to watch You Tube videos....It has to be a moving visual and verbal source of info for me to absorb any of it...

 

Reading just plain text is futile to me now....

 

As im even writing this I have forgotten where I started lol....

 

Here goes the check, check and check again routine :P




#411818 Artificial lights

Posted by eddy1886 on 29 December 2016 - 01:14 PM

Yep, I try to avoid all stores really, I usually only shop online for this very reason. When walking around stores I feel off-balance and floaty. The people milling about, the products on the shelves, it all kind of comes at me and makes my head swim. I always felt worse when seeing doctors and psychiatrists about my DP too, and it took me a while to figure out it was due to the lighting in their offices.

Exactly what this says!!!   :sad:




#411738 Severe memory problems

Posted by eddy1886 on 29 December 2016 - 06:02 AM

Heather I actually believe its a concentration thing and not a memory thing when people talk about DP wreaking havoc with their short term memory...

 

DP f***s up your concentration big time and can almost make it feel like you cant remember what youve been doing throughout the day...

 

Often I will sit down in early evening and think to myself "what the hell was I doing all day?"

 

The truth is I CAN actually recall what I was doing when I really think about it.... I just question if I actually really did whatever it was I was doing.....This used to make me feel like I was becoming forgetful but the more I thought about it I realised I was just experiencing awful concentration levels throughout the day and not really forgetting...

 

Maybe this is just me though! :P




#411713 Artificial lights

Posted by eddy1886 on 29 December 2016 - 12:51 AM

Im an Electrician and I can tell you that LEDs are the way forward....The light from them is much more natural....I replaced every bulb in our house with LEDs recently too...

 

They save you a fortune in the long run also...

 

You will also be contributing to a greener planet...




#411017 Xanax

Posted by eddy1886 on 27 December 2016 - 02:42 AM

The main problem with xanax is that tolerance builds very quickly....you soon get into a situation where you need bigger doses and need it more often to get the same desired effects...

 

It is strictly a short term drug!!!!!!!!!

 

Otherwsie you could end up in a serious addiction trap and it can be extremely difficult to get off the drug without alot of difficulty...

 

This applies to all Benzos (Valium etc)
