Paige durand's curator insight, March 5, 2014 9:36 PM

I think Howie Mandel is completely right and how mental disorders should not be ashamed of. I for one had the fear of gems and that they would somehow get me greatly ill or would spread all over me. I remember in high school how people would ask me why i constantly washed my hands or used hand sanitize just because i read someone else's paper. then once people began to notice it more, people would call me names or make me feel embarrassed because i felt like i needed to wash my hands. I finally got the help i need but i know how he felt and how horrible it was. He explains his story of his OCD, ADHD, and, depression. He explains how people actually need to get help when it first starts rather than wait since it only gets worse. But unfortunately when he was younger they did not know what his case was.

Invisible Walls: How to Set Boundaries After Abuse | Kinsanity | Scoop.it
When you’re depressed, anxious, abused, and/or have been isolated your whole life, it’s easy to feel like other people can’t really ever get close. Socializing is really hard for people who’ve had nothing but abuse. And we keep waiting for someone healthy to save us. But they can’t. So how can we fight this process and end the cycle? Well, there are three options that I’ve seen.

Note the few "light-up" areas in the genetials... The article notes that, "It's worth noting that the bodily sensations weren't blood flow, heat, or anything else that could be measured objectively—they were based solely on physical twinges subjects said they experienced." Which means I wonder how many people dared to mention "twinges" in their genitals?

The Selling of Attention Deficit Disorder ~ NY Times

The Selling of Attention Deficit Disorder ~ NY Times | Kinsanity | Scoop.it

by Alan Schwartz


"After more than 50 years leading the fight to legitimize attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Keith Conners could be celebrating.


"Severely hyperactive and impulsive children, once shunned as bad seeds, are now recognized as having a real neurological problem. Doctors and parents have largely accepted drugs like Adderall and Concerta to temper the traits of classic A.D.H.D., helping youngsters succeed in school and beyond.


"But Dr. Conners did not feel triumphant this fall as he addressed a group of fellow A.D.H.D. specialists in Washington. He noted that recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that the diagnosis had been made in 15 percent of high school-age children, and that the number of children on medication for the disorder had soared to 3.5 million from 600,000 in 1990. He questioned the rising rates of diagnosis and called them “a national disaster of dangerous proportions.”


“The numbers make it look like an epidemic. Well, it’s not. It’s preposterous,” Dr. Conners, a psychologist and professor emeritus at Duke University, said in a subsequent interview. “This is a concoction to justify the giving out of medication at unprecedented and unjustifiable levels.”

Living with & Loving Someone with Borderline Personality Disorder

Living with & Loving Someone with Borderline Personality Disorder | Kinsanity | Scoop.it

Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured. ~Mark Twain 

 

We are a psychologically sophisticated society. Emotional difficulties are now shared openly — not only by celebrities but by your average person. It’s not unusual for people to tell friends that they have an anxiety disorder, anger management problem, depression,panic attacks, phobias, eating disorder, substance abuse problem,OCD or ADD.

 

Yet, there is a widespread psychological disorder that most people know little or nothing about. Why? Because its symptoms are largely interpersonal, causing many to view it as a relationship issue, not a mental health one. Also, people shy away from the term because of its unflattering name: Borderline Personality Disorder.


Via PAT NOVAK
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

I find this article more than a bit misleading as it does not identify how truly rare Borderline Personality Disorder is; that said, the article does break things down easily -- so easily, in fact, these are decent relationship tips for many relationships.
