  1. https://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/Three-People-Found-Dead-In-Redondo-Beach-Home-in-Apparent-Murder-Suicide-488051721.html This hit especially close to home for me, as I knew Ivana Waz from working at Mattel.
  2. Hi all, I wanted to reach out because I recently published a book called Angels Can't Swim that focuses on abuse, sexuality, and mental health in college swimmers. If you are interested please check it out! Thanks and have a great day. https://alexandramccann02.wixsite.com/mysite

    Volunteer baby snuggler

    In a world full of terrible news everyday, from natural disasters to whatever orange Voldemort tweets and does and more, I think it's important to remember to take care of our mental health now more than ever. So I thought we could have a thread with feel-good stories and things to make us smile. To start off, here is the story of an elderly man who volunteers as a baby snuggler at a NICU, because some of the parents are unable to be there to do that themselves.

    Xojane: Clickbait gone bad

    Did anyone else see the xojane article that has upset so many people? A woman wrote about the death of her mentally ill former friend, calling the death "a blessing" and saying her friend was beyond help. A lot of sites have written about it, but here's one: http://www.mediaite.com/online/everyone-angry-over-that-xojane-piece-celebrating-a-mentally-ill-womans-death-is-right/ I saw it really early on and it really was shockingly terrible so I'm glad other sites have picked it up. I'm not a fan of xojane at all but I read sometimes because I think the obvious clickbait articles and ensuing drama in the comments can be pretty funny. I mean, the other day there was an article about how all male OBGYNs are perverts! That's prime outrage material right there. This, though, has made me realize I need to stop supporting this kind of thing with my clicks. This is by far the worst example I've seen, but it's so common to see sites encouraging young women to write really personal essays then leaving them to the wrath of the internet, or encouraging terrible think pieces because they know controversy attracts readers. Personally, I'm done with those sites and I'm ashamed at myself for having supported it so long just because I thought the drama was funny.
  5. http://www.slate.com/articles/life/cover_story/2016/04/at_mercy_multiplied_troubled_young_women_come_to_believe_their_mental_health.html Slate has this really great in depth article about this network of Christian counseling centers - and how its services have affected so many young women and their families. Some of the personal stories are just heartbreaking. It's pretty amazing to me that something like this can exist with no oversight from any government body. It just seems so shady and yet it pulls in so many people because they supposedly have a religious focus.

    The Rise of Biblical Counseling

    I just read this article about Biblical counseling and wondered what people here thought about it. http://www.psmag.com/health-and-behavior/evangelical-prayer-bible-religion-born-again-christianity-rise-biblical-counseling-89464 I thought this was a sad statistic: On the other hand, having known a lot of Christians who don't really believe in mental illness, I was almost surprised that the number wasn't higher. I like that the article pointed out that it can be helpful sometimes, but other cases are horrifying. The article quotes one man who has a book that sounds interesting, The Failure of Evangelical Mental Health Care: Treatments That Harm Women, LGBT Persons and the Mentally Ill. (amazon link) That definitely makes me think of the Duggars. I hate to think what they must be taught. That idea that the mentally ill are insufficient believers is one I have heard a lot and still deal with from my own family. I never received any type of counseling, biblical or otherwise, while I was a Christian, but I know others who did have decades of trying to cure their mental illness that way with no success, which just made them feel guilty and like a bad Christian. Anyway, I found the whole article interesting, and I'm curious if others here have had experiences with this type of thing themselves.
  7. well okay so my ex and i are on good terms i guess this is going to be weird as hell because i'm still salty but we shall see pray that i'm able to keep my composure and not try anything stupid

    ok, cupid?

    i've been disassociating for about 2 weeks straight, which has really impeded on my studies. I took a Vyvanse today to see if that would help, and so far it's working. anyways, so I joined OkCupid on a whim because a friend mentioned it casually in conversation. it's very LGBT friendly! moreso than I thought it would be. I've met several people from Iran. I went on an OkCupid date Saturday which went really well!! we went out to a coffee shop kinda near me and I had a great fruit smoothie. the boy I went with is very sweet; he's interested in socialist discourse and how misogyny, racism, etc. all derives from capitalism and exploitation. not quite what to think of that theory yet, but it was nice listening to his opinion. I'm pretty excited for more dates, but knowing my BPD ass, I should take it a little slower. i need to get a new shrink. i love my current one, but it's hard to get in with him because he's in Russia all the darn time (with family. he's from Yekatrinberg), and i feel like i need to try out new meds. prozac has been nice, but I think an SNRI (releases norepinephrine along with serotonin) would suit me, given how well I do on Vyvanse (Vyvanse releases both dopemine and norepinephrine but is expensive AF because no generic until 2025 ) i should stop with the pharma-babble, i'm not even in actual pharmacy school yet, still pre-pharm *sigh* i should be writing a research paper on grassroots organizations but instead i am blogging about pharmacy and online dating. thanks FJ

    Duggars and Mental Health

    How do you think the Duggars deal with mental health concerns within their family? Surely they understand that prayer can only do so much and that some of their kids might need someone to talk to who could provide another perspective. I know there are a few theories around regarding when Michelle seemed to have some sort of mental breakdown and whether of not she's on medication. If that's the case, then maybe a few of the older kids are on medication as well. I know I'd probably need something to deal with all the damn noise and general fuckery, but maybe it's different if you grow up with it/are indoctrinated into believing that this is how things should be for everyone.

  11. http://iblp.org/seminars-conferences/basic-seminar Pay attention around the 1:30 mark of the video. Note the "outcomes" of not curing yourself through God. Perversion? Really? Because it can't be said enough: FUCK YOU GOTHARD. The evil government will end up paying disability for many of his followers who can't deal with the perfection and the inevitable stress that his lifestyle demands. Hell, Mullet had a breakdown 12 kids ago and she had to be rescued to keep her sanity. Not that she's exactly stable these days. She needs meds beyond Boniva (or other osteoperosis meds she should have been taking years ago, but NOOOOO. Kids are like flowers. Being a black thumb gardener, I'm not surprised at the outcome of her brood, or that she denied pretty much every doctor's advice and had a dozen more. Just one example of why fundies are so sick. I know it's been said a zillion times around here, but many of us can attest to the fact that prayer doesn't cure a brain that misfires in ANY way. Gothard DEMEANS any kind of mental illness. Again, FUCK YOU GOTHARD. /born this way eta: They've done a nice job of taking the wrinkles out of an 80 year old guy's face, especially when other pictures depict him older. I guess Robert Staddon is earning his brownie points. *snicker*

    When did Michelle Duggar go crazy?

    I was having a discussion with my friend and I was wondering what you all thought. When do you think Michelle went a bit crazy? 1) After the birth control incident (miscarriage) 2) When she was doing laundry that one night and started crying because she was so overwhelmed with 5 children (I personally feel she had a nervous breakdown that night) 3) A combination of both 4) Something else
