Nothing but a ghost

No heart has she,

Her soul is blank.

Empty as the sea,

dark and rank.

She lives in misery,

In swamps of hate.

There is no mystery,

of her soulless state.

She sucks the life

leaves nothing but venom.

Twists the knife

Into her victim.

Yet the joke you see is on her

Who she pains the most,

Emptiness to endure,

When you are nothing but a ghost.

 

The brain

Ah the brain, magnificent functioning machine of man. Having discussed different mental disorders in this blog I thought I would delve into where it is all happening. The mysterious brain.

From Web MD

The brain is one of the largest and most complex organs in the human body.
It is made up of more than 100 billion nerves that communicate in trillions of connections called synapses.

The brain is made up of many specialized areas that work together:
• The cortex is the outermost layer of brain cells. Thinking and voluntary movements begin in the cortex.
• The brain stem is between the spinal cord and the rest of the brain. Basic functions like breathing and sleep are controlled here.
• The basal ganglia are a cluster of structures in the center of the brain. The basal ganglia coordinate messages between multiple other brain areas.
• The cerebellum is at the base and the back of the brain. The cerebellum is responsible for coordination and balance.

The brain is also divided into several lobes:
• The frontal lobes are responsible for problem solving and judgment and motor function.
• The parietal lobes manage sensation, handwriting, and body position.
• The temporal lobes are involved with memory and hearing.
• The occipital lobes contain the brain’s visual processing system.

The brain is surrounded by a layer of tissue called the meninges. The skull (cranium) helps protect the brain from injury.

My conjecture:

The brain is one of the most complex organs in nature. There are so many bits and pieces that something going wrong easily exists. In some mentally ill people some portions of the brain do not fire. Others misfire.In those cases reality isn’t real any more. Actually reality isn’t real it is made up of all sorts of bits and pieces of information we sort out in the brain. Don’t believe me? Pick an incident from childhood and compare your memory of it to your siblings or parents. We all see reality differently so which is the real?

Here is a link with research into that subject if you would like further information.

So now we find through research that the brain’s reality is different from what actually happened. How is that different for someone that is mentally ill and how exactly do we determine who is mentally ill or who is just seeing reality differently from us which means everyone?? My definition is that if someone’s internal mental life keeps them from enjoying a full experience in life then it could be determined to be a mental illness and need some sort of help coping. Otherwise we are all just different. There are also malformations of the brain that lead to other psychological issues. So many things make up who we are.

Another influence on our thinking is chemistry. In order for our brains to function correctly they need neurotransmitters. That is brain chemistry. People suffering from depression and there is a huge percentage of the population that do have a deficiency in those chemicals that control mood. Here is an article about that subject as well.

One of my readers asked very intelligently how I came to some of my conclusions. I am not a doctor I am just a very avid follower and investigator of mental issues. So much research needs to be done in this field and I am pleased to see it is ongoing. Hope that this little article clears up what I am using to form my opinions. If you disagree with any of them please I would love to discuss it with you. Through discussion we learn more. If we discuss these issues they come out of the closet where they never should have been in the first place. Thanks for reading!!!

 

 

Sociopaths the chameleons

sociopaths-are-master-liars

Sociopaths are tricky they are like chameleons sometimes you don’t know what they are until too late. They will worm their way into your world and your heart. Sometimes into your very self. They have no feelings or emotions so become adept at copying others so they can be just like a mirror. They take what makes you you and flips it around. So you fall in love or admiration for them. They then isolate you from others specially others that might see beyond the mask. You become the center of their world, the most important thing on Earth. Who wouldn’t be flattered? Where are you going? Oh let me come with you my darling. You are seeing them? Oh dear you know they really aren’t good for you. Why don’t you quit your job? Stay home I make enough you deserve it. Oh my you are going to wear that? Makes you look a little fat maybe you should wear something that doesn’t show as much skin. When they are friends they are the best friends in the world. After awhile you will see that they see through all your other friends. The notice that the other friends are jealous so you really shouldn’t be around them. They buy things for you. So you will be grateful.

chameleon

Notice the pattern? Then the reflection turns back on them. You must do what they tell you or lose their love or their friendship. There will be trials. If you love me you would. How can they be your best friend I am your best friend. Isolation.

When the isolation is complete they get control and soon you are doing and saying things that aren’t you because you aren’t you anymore. You have become the reflection of the sociopath.

Exhibitionist

Exhibitionist

I wonder what it is about social media that brings out the exhibitionist in some people. It can really become cringe worthy after awhile. So here is my rant about how much is too much to post.

Profile pictures seem to be just everything. I saw one with two men’s bare rear ends on a woman’s profile. Another had a BDSM picture of a woman. Now these profile pictures can be seen by anyone on the internet. They don’t last very long as they are sometimes so offensive they get reported and taken down like these two were. No one cares about your freaky sex life except for your significant other and maybe a couple hundred of your social media friends. Please share it with them not the rest of us. I have seen naked men’s butts they are hairy and do not make good profile pictures.

There seems to be a lack of a filter of common sense with some of the stuff that is posted. Personal stuff about relations, affairs, sexual proclivities. All on a public profile. People there is a little button you can click to make these things to your friends only. One assumes your friends are into the same sort of fun. That is fine I like a bit of spice as well as another person I just would choose not to share it with the world. If you are being cheated on dump them or keep them it is up to you but don’t discuss it with the rest of us. Honestly it is your PERSONAL problem. Think they cheated with someone else. Deal with them don’t drag out your ridiculous drama all over for others to see. Besides nobody can take someone else unless they want to go WAKE UP!

Some also put every picture they can post publicly of their children. Pedophiles are rampant on the internet. Why you would put those pictures for every stranger on social media is totally beyond me. Again try that little button. Share your wonderful kids, pets etc. with your friends people that you supposedly have some idea who they are. Also bear in mind that your pictures can be copied and used in places you probably don’t want them to be. You don’t want to see that wonderful picture of your children on some pedophile site.

Another older lady put where her city was and posted a huge diamond ring to brag to the world about her station in life. No doubt her name and address is in the local phone book. I only hope she has an alarm system in her house. She is going to need it. People put all kinds of personal information on their profiles including where they work and live. Social media is a stalkers paradise. Don’t feed them the information to stalk you unless you really need friends that badly.

Recently the US military informed their members that ISIS is stalking social media to find military members to attack. Don’t put your unit and pictures in uniform on your page. We know you are proud to be US military. We are proud of you too but want you to remain safe so use a filter. Make your profile as private as possible.

The rest of us also don’t want to know every detail about your personal life. Share your medical problems with your friends and family or don’t that is even better. People tire of that after awhile as they do all the poor me posts you put on your social media. The bottom line is use some common sense. There are almost a billion people on Facebook alone. Do you really want everyone of them to know your business???

tmi social media

Stay safe everyone. Think about what you post.

Delusional jealousy is a mental disorder where a person has delusional beliefs around the idea that the person with whom they are romantically involved with is cheating on them. It is sometimes called morbid jealousy or Othello syndrome, taking its name from Shakespeare’s play in which delusions of infidelity play a major role. Less common names for the condition are erotic jealously syndrome and sexual jealousy. Sometimes it is a condition of its own, but more often it is a symptom of another psychiatric disorder.

Psychiatric professionals distinguish between regular jealously and jealous behavior that may be delusional. A healthy sense of jealousy or suspicion only occurs as a response to evidence of infidelity. It also changes over time to reflect the facts surrounding a situation. Jealous delusions have no basis in reality, or do not change in the face of new facts or proof otherwise. These delusions manifest themselves in obsessive thoughts that can become the center of the person’s life. A person suffering from delusional jealousy will often repeatedly accuse his or her loved one of infidelity, constantly search for evidence to prove the accusations and may even resort to stalking both the significant other and the person whom they think they may be cheating with.

As the delusions progress, they can also take up the entirety of a person’a life. Personal and professional relationships can begin to suffer, and the mental health of the person with the delusions can degrade even further. Delusional jealously can even become life-threatening for those suffering from it and the people around them. Stalking behavior based on delusions can turn violent. Suicide is also a concern, as the delusions can lead to severe depression.

Many times, delusional jealousy is a symptom to another mental disorder. Borderline personality disorder (BPD) can often lead to delusions. Sufferers of BPD frequently go through periods of extreme anxiety and depression. They also tend to be defensive and easily offended. All of these combined tend to make them more susceptible to feelings of jealously, and extreme cases can lead to delusions associated with jealous thoughts. Depression and other mental problems such as bipolar disorders and schizophrenia can also lead to delusions of infidelity. External factors such as sexual dysfunction or drug and alcohol abuse have also been shown to contribute to delusional jealousy.

via What Is Delusional Jealousy? (with pictures).

Jealousy is a sad thing people with this disorder never have a moments peace. They ruin their lives and others though their delusions. Social Media has made a forum for these sorts where they post outrageous things about others due to their perceived lover’s betrayal. Instead of confronting the love object they vilify and attack anyone that even friends or says a kind thing to them. It is a very sad state of affairs and makes the suffer of this delusion a pathetic, obsessed person.
