Russian delusions

17 06 2013

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, the President of the republic of Kalmykia, made the extraordinary comments on Russian state TV last week, claiming he spent several hours in the company of aliens in 1997.

He said he was relaxing at his Moscow apartment when he heard his balcony door being opened and someone calling him. “I went there and looked. There was a semi-transparent pipe. I went into this pipe and saw people in yellow spacesuits.”

He claims to have communicated with the aliens/humanoids through brain waves. “I was shown around their spaceship,” he said with no apparent sign of irony, adding that the aliens explained that they were collecting samples. “I would probably have not believed this if there had not been three witnesses – these were my driver, a minister and my assistant.”

Andrey Lebedev, a Russian MP, has even demanded that the Kremlin investigate the incident.

Did you say you felt unnormal ?

Let us change the world

When you think about the world today, its easy to get overwhelmed. We see news every day, where the current themes are war, unemployment, hunger, extreme weather and people dying of different diseases. I am lucky, and live in one of the wealthiest countries in the world. In rankings, Norway are number 2 when it comes to overall happiness, only surpassed by Switzerland. We have it all.

I remember a friend in United Kingdom (a wonderful man who doesn`t realize it himself) shaking his head because we actually GET paid (some of it we have to pay back, but to a very low rent) for studying, and we can study for 8 years before we have to start working. He worked from early morning to late in the evening, and he was lucky, because it is so hard to actually find a job in London. Here this would lead to…

Have some fun

Psychology is serious stuff, but sometimes its allright to just do some fun things. I found a quiz, and personally love to do small stuff like that. Maybe you also want to reveal more about you own character?

This is an emergency

4 06 2013

From a blogger who lives with bipolar disease

 Bipolar For Life

Hypervigilance: Emergency Mode

Imagine that your ears are tuned and listening constantly for the drop of a pin in silence that signals impending explosion.

Imagine your eyes scanning the room, straining to see behind your head as you walk, even half-open in rare moments of sleep, unable to close for fear of missing the approach of the evil that comes with the dark.

Imagine your skin so thin and so sensitive that even the still air rubs like a rasp.  Clothes are agony.  Underwear is torture.  No, no, don’t touch me!

Alert, always alert, and jump at the least sound.  Don’t close that door.  No, don’t open it.  Move my chair, I want to be able to see that door.  No, I don’t want that window at my back.  Close those drapes.

Who cooked this food?  I don’t want it, then.

My bags are packed.  I can leave at any moment.  My taxi money is set aside.  The driver’s number is in my phone.  No, not any driver.  Only this one.  I know him.

The bags inside my brain are always packed.  I can leave at any moment.  Any time and anytime, if my eyes see me something, if my ears hear me something, if my skin crawls at the feel of the air.  Or if the air in my lungs chokes danger, I can be gone in the blink of an eye.

I am always on the move, never in one place for more than a moment or two, maybe less if you think about it.  There is no place to rest: I must stay alert, on guard, watch out: someone may approach, may get too close, may brush my skin and leave raw places and burns that turn into scars, scars that hold pain, scars that pile on top of scars.  Don’t touch me.

Tough?  You said I must be tough, then.  No.  The opposite.  The longer I travel, the more I am lost.  My bags are packed.  I can go at a moment’s notice.





Anxiety

3 06 2013

In my work as a clinical psychologist, meeting a lot of lovely people in different age-groups, what I like the most, is their own description of their problems. They are invaluable, and how one person feels can never be just compared with somebody else. There will still be some things in common, and I found that this blogger had a pretty good sense of it, and therefore present her knowledge about anxiety:

  • WHAT SHOULD EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT ANXIETY?

    By Chelsea Henry, I’m anxious

    http://maniacfire.wordpress.com/

    • It can affect anyone at any time. It doesn’t discriminate.
    • It’s a mental illness. Just because it’s not like more main-stream illnesses doesn’t mean it should be treated differently.
    • Just like other mental illnesses, it is highly stigmatized. I wish this wasn’t the case because so many people deal with some form of anxiety on a daily basis. Being able to talk about it without being looked down upon would be a beautiful thing and I think more people would be inclined to seek help, talk to others, and share their stories.
    • It’s not a cop-out or an excuse; anxiety is a very real thing. Some seem to think it’s something you can just get over and that you can just relax. It’s not like that at all.
    • Some people who have anxiety can barely leave their houses, others are totally fine with things like that. Not all anxiety is the same, and it shouldn’t be treated that way.
    • That said, sometimes the thought of leaving the house is absolutely terrifying.
    • There are different kinds of anxiety disorders: Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, etc.
    • Anxiety attacks and panic attacks are two different things. Anxiety attacks are usually caused by a specific stressor (like fear) and aren’t as intense as panic attacks. Panic attacks can happen for no reason whatsoever and are totally unpredictable. The symptoms of panic attacks are a little more intense — think heart palpitations, lots of trembling and shaking, feeling like you can’t get enough air, etc. Panic attacks are also scary as hell
    • If you’re someone who is around a person who suffers from any type of anxiety, telling them to “relax” or “calm down” does not help, it mostly just makes us feel really stupid. I promise if we could relax, we so would.
    • Anxiety can make you really really sleepy. After the adrenaline dies down, sometimes all you want to do is sleep.
    • While anxiety can be treated with medication, it doesn’t always have to be. Breathing techniques and guided imagery are invaluable; you can bring yourself down from a 9 to a 5-6 if you do them correctly!
    • Learning to look at anxiety as a part of you rather than something that is wrong with you will help you deal with it so much better. It’s just like having asthma or a food allergy. It’s just a part of who you are.20130602-215142.jpg 32200962ee6fd3e6c1577af201ba1f30
