That Involuntary Opening Up

In my entry, Walls and Opening Up , I mentioned how magical that little room in Lagmay Hall was. I mentioned how my Doc was able to pierce through my thick and high walls. My therapy continued for almost a year, twice every month. And let’s face it. One of the biggest challenges regarding psychological help…… Continue reading That Involuntary Opening Up

Walls and Opening up

Yes, I had this wall. I could not remember anymore when and where I started building my walls, but I knew I already had them since the very first memory I could come up with. Also, I brought these walls with me, as I had always been doing, the first time I walked in that…… Continue reading Walls and Opening up

How I finally sought psychological help

It all happened in 2015. The nothingness, which I discussed in the entry Help. Please Save Me, had already been overwhelming back then. It was already affecting the different aspects of my life, especially in terms of work and relationships. Heightened nothingness I was a freelancer back then and the start of 2015 was not…… Continue reading How I finally sought psychological help

Societal Toxins and the Stigma on Mental Health

We may see a number of psychological websites and blogs using the term “toxic people.” I actually have mentioned them in the entry, Anxiety and Being Attached. Toxic people are often referred to as the persons who are not good for your mental health, or most probably those who have been stigmatized by the term,…… Continue reading Societal Toxins and the Stigma on Mental Health

Chester, Panic Attacks and Suicides

This week has been a shock to the rock music industry as Chester Bennington, of the American legendary band, Linkin Park, was found dead in his home in Los Angeles, California. I was not really a huge fan of the band but I could say that I grew up to their songs, as their music…… Continue reading Chester, Panic Attacks and Suicides

Anxiety and Being Attached

Anxiety may be hard to define basing solely on patient’s experiences. I and Doc (see my About page to have an idea of Doc) actually did not thoroughly define the term in any of our sessions, or maybe we just had not gotten the chance because I already quit. But anyway, in my last entry,…… Continue reading Anxiety and Being Attached

What is a support group?

In the entry, “Help. Please. Save Me,” I detailed how this so-called nothingness really feels like. In a nutshell, it is simply like floating onto nothingness, without any direction, until that sense of indirection reflects into the real world. There, I mentioned that lucky are those who experience nothingness, and being noticed by people around them.…… Continue reading What is a support group?

“Help. Please. Save me.”

In the entry, Burnout vs Fed up, I roughly discussed the difference between the two mental weariness. As a recap, the main discrepancy is that, when you get fed up, you can still continue with life. Burnout deprives you of that capability, and thus can be mentally paralyzing. The worst thing that can happen is…… Continue reading “Help. Please. Save me.”

Burnout vs Fed Up

At the end of a work or school day, people usually feel the weariness taking over their system. Some may say that this can just be replenished by some good food and a deep sleep. This can actually do the job at times. But as schedules get more hectic, the act of good eating and…… Continue reading Burnout vs Fed Up
