Schizophrenia: patients usually have less brain tissue
Major Depression: scans show less brain activity in depressed brain
Alzheimer’s: brain tissue significantly shrinks, hippocampus is usually the first region to go
ADHD: less brain activity in the frontal cortex (area associated with decision making) 
OCD: high brain activity 
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): hippocampal volume reduction (area involved in memory) and increased activation of the amygdala (area involved in emotional responses) 

This is so important! I usually don’t reblog posts but people need to understand that mental illnesses are NO CHOICE! You cannot get over it, or snap with your fingers and just be okay again. It takes constant fixing and a lot of strength to get out of this.So to everyone who judges people with mental disorders: people don’t get a choice to develop a disorder or not, but being stupid and telling them to get over it is a choice.PLEASE DONT JUDGE THINGS UNLESS YOU UNDERSTAND!

11AM

I finally mailed the journal! Sometimes mail services is crazy ‘cause she got it the next day :o She love it! She said even her boyfriend thought it was one of the most amazing/thoughtful gifts he had even seen (I think he said that about another gift I made) well he better thing that considering how many hours I spent working on it. Of course then she felt like crap because she never got my anything for my birthday, she’s the only person I know that would feel guilty when getting her birthday present, even if it doesn’t last long.

Lately I’ve been going to bed late and getting up early so I’ve been super tired, to the point I think I’ve been sleep walking. All I know is, today was the third day at like 4 in the morning (which is NOT when I planned on getting up) that I’ve woken up not in bed, this morning I was wondering around my apartment, I don’t remember what I was doing the other morning but I think I was just standing there and the first morning I was in my kitchen staring at my alarm because I thought it had gone off when really I had forgot to even set it.

It’s like I’m slowly going crazy. 

Also, I don’t know what to do when I wake up because I don’t know why I got up so I’m like “maybe I have to go to the bathroom” so I just go to the bathroom and plop back down in bed because it feels weird to just go back to bed because I had to get up be wandering around for a reason.

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.



Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST

All I wanted to do was move my popcorn to a different cabinet so it’d be easier to reach, but because I knocked of a magnet in the process and broke it I have now swept, mopped, vacuumed, cleaned my bathtub, sink and mirror and now I’m sitting here hold half a magnet waiting for the stupid glue to dry because it falls apart if I set it down.

I didn’t even want to eat the popcorn, I just wanted to move it.

10PM

Hit 67

Okay, so that thing that I said I wrote a while ago and would post (and then never did, sorry about that) here it is, completed even, although not by choice, if it had been up to be it would still be sitting unfinished in a notebook somewhere and be completely different than how it turned out, but it’s alright. If you have a comment on it or anything feel free to let me know though, it’s for my fiction writing class and it’s due in like two weeks :p

Murderer. Killer for hire. Hitman. Personally, I like to think of myself as paying off a debt. And it just so happens to involve the death of a few people. Sixty-seven to be exact, so far. Soldiers have killed just as many people during war time, but we call them heroes because they’re employed by the government and say they’re fighting for peace, justice and our freedom, they’re hired and they kill people, killers for hire. See that? Not much of a difference. Now serial killers, all they have to do is kill three people, minimum, and there’re people who idolize them. And they do their killings for free. They’re also known as murderers, again, not much of a difference. So why the hell do I get crap for killing people? The only difference between us is that I didn’t choose to be a hitman; this is not what my eight year old self saw my 23 year old self doing. I should have been a professional soccer player. Instead I have people after my head because of a profession I don’t even want. If this was back during Nosferatu’s time I’d have an angry mob with pitch forks and torches after me. And the people leading this mob? The same kind of people that hire me, this is all for show for the poor dumb citizens that truly think their tax dollars are being used for what the politicians tell them they are used for, rather than my allowance. I felt kind of bad for them.
