The sound of reaching the shore

I lie in my bed after a shower. I’ve tried to wash away the day and give
my feverish body energy to fight nasty bacterias who fight their (hopefully) dying battles. Birdy’s wings plays in the background, setting the mood. In two weeks my life will take a different turn. I will not live in the same apartment I’ve stayed in for three years, but move back to my father and then into the apartment me and my boyfriend have bought together. Changes, always changes. Sometimes so many that I’ll have to sit down and think about it all: The last year has been like living inside a bubble of crazy incidents. I’ve been like a manic cat trying to catch birds that fly in all directions. I have enjoyed the roller coaster, and will continue to do so. But sometimes I need rest, like everyone else. That’s when I type these words or let my eyes settle on solid pages that never change. Writing, reading and thinking have been my closest friends for many years, and they will be for many more. I love them as much as I love my exuberant new friends: They always smile, have thousands of dreams and ideas that they manage to follow through. My golden luck ill wear with pride around my neck. I’ll never forget the Chances I’ll been given, and try to give back as much of it as I can.

Blog for mental health in 2014

5 02 2014

m6We blog for various reasons. I do it because I love to write, and because I love to learn, share information and meet other people who want to fight for the same things as me. A subject I focus on all the time, is mental health. This comes natural to me, since I work as a psychologist, and I hope I`ll never stop with what feels meaningful and might help others. I blog for you, the reader, with hope that you`ll find something meaningful or inspiring in what I write.

This year, like last year, will be full of activities where writing will be a central part of what I`ll do. I need to express myself like others need air. :

I need to share what I know, and I need to help fight stigma against mental health. That`s why I`ll promise to write about mental health. I will share from my personal knowledge, experience and dreams, and will always fight for a better tomorrow.

Here follows my pledge“I pledge my commitment to the Blog for Mental Health 2014 Project. I will blog about mental health topics not only for myself, but for others. By displaying this badge, I show my pride, dedication, and acceptance for mental health. I use this to promote mental health education in the struggle to erase stigma.”  Relevant Reads:

Brains grow

26 01 2014

I have always been fascinated by brain research, and when I watch videos like these, I am even more eager to learn more. Neurocells are the building blocks to everything we experience, and to watch them “live” is fascinating and mind boggling.

I got chains and you got wings

But I got chains and you got wings

Angels were never meant to fall
And you were the loveliest of all
If I thought God could fix this, I’d pray for your forgiveness

From the blog: Dating a psychopath

The link under is a good documentary with Louis Theroux. In this video all the classic character traits of a charismatic sociopath are there.

The truth about Jimmy Saville did not come out fully until after his death. He was a very celebrity in the UK, and operated behind his mask of charisma for decades. This is a really good video. Unfortunately I can no longer find this on youtube.

Amadeus  He never returned the cat after he got him. I never got the chance to say goodbye.

It`s actually quite sad that psychopaths/sociopaths never (?) can experience the range of feelings we have. People with shackles who are freed, can truly live in every way. Many psychopaths have no meanings in their lives, because without feelings, everything is flat. Its sad really, but they have to help themselves. It can`t be family or their lover. The people closest to us, don`t have the necessary distance that people must have to handle the pscyhopaths
Am I a sociopath? (part 1) from the blogger in:

Sociopath World

 So wonders a reader:

Hello.

I think I might be a sociopath, but I’m not sure. I don’t have a conscience per se, it’s more like a logical guide for what is right and wrong. Nothing turns my stomach, no type of immoral behavior enrages me unless I’m on the receiving end. All of my responses, even my “emotional” responses, are calculated and performed.

I know I’m not the smartest person on the planet–VERY WELL, but I feel it. As far as my heart and soul are concerned, there is nobody smarter on this planet, even though the very mind in question knows that’s not the case.

I use people when I can, so long as it doesn’t hurt them in the process. I’m not sure if that’s because I don’t want to hurt people or because I’d like to believe I’m not manipulative. Generally speaking, I don’t lie about anything except for my feelings.

But I don’t go out of my way to hurt people. I actually go out of my way NOT to hurt people. Pretty much my entire life IS an act, and I don’t really know who I am… but I’m definitely not normal, nor do I fit all of the negative aspects of the sociopath stereotype.

What does this sound like to you? I’m asking because as much as I’m able to make sense of the world around me, I cannot for the life of me make sense of myself. That is the one thing that my mind can’t penetrate. I can state facts about what I do, what I don’t do, my habits and tendencies, etc, but trying to form an opinion about myself is like walking through a minefield of self-deception and convenient stray thoughts.
