I wish we said “fancy” in America. As in, “I fancy you.” It’s such a more agreeable term than “I have a crush on you.” What’s a crush? Like, I AM A BOA CONSTRICTOR AND I AM GOING TO IMMOBILIZE YOU WITH MY MISPLACED AND OBSESSIVE AFFECTION. “I fancy…
Depersonalization Disorder is where a person “looks at themselves from the outside”, and observes their own physical actions or mental processes as if they were an observer instead of themselves. This often brings a sense of unreality, and an alteration in the…
DIRECTIONS: Look at the chart to measure how far you slant. Slant reveals the degree to which you express your real emotional feelings to others, depending on your mood. (Does not matter if you’re left-handed or right-handed)
Slant A — Emotionally ill. Totally emotionally repressed (keeps back) and locked up in his or her own world. Cannot be reached. Leans over backward to avoid emotional situations. Past- and self-oriented. (Among convicted rapists, there is a preponderance of leftward slanters. An inability to properly express real feelings.)
Slant B — Represses (keeps back) real emotional feelings. Appears cold, evasive (avoids answering directly), and self-absorbed. Independent, hard to fathom (understand), and difficult to get along with.
Slant C — Represses real emotional feelings. Cool exterior masks inhibited reactions. Diplomatic, reserved, not straightforward. (This is saying that how you react on the outside isn’t really how you feel on the inside; you put a mask on.)
Bold and independent Aries usually won’t make a secret if he/she doesn’t like the gift. The most relevant keyword is probably surprise. The price is not important, but the quality is. The person that Aries cares about doesn’t have to spend much on the gift, if they know how to, under the moonlight with the champagne glasses jingling, dedicate a star to Aries. Aries will not be happy with a frying pan, underwear or a pen for Christmas.
Aries believes that he/she was born to do great things and, despite of his/her age, hopes to become famous. So Aries doesn’t want any meaningless trinket that will be left to dust on a shelf somewhere. Aries hopes to receive gifts that would show him/her as famous, rich, successful or beautiful. He/she always has the perfect gift chosen, all you need to do is ask – he/she loves red things that make noise or at least smoke, e.g. aroma lamp used for healing nerves. Aries could also use a talisman because he/she always gets into trouble or has an accident. The perfect gift would be a mirror in a golden frame – he/she is very vain.
Beware, Aries hates antique and old junk and demands that his/her present would be wrapped in a shiny paper!
There are two main types of mood disorder: major depressive disorder (also known as unipolar or clinical depression), and bipolar depression (formerly known as manic depression). The distinguishing feature separating these disorders is the presence or absence of manic episodes. Specifically, if the person has manic episodes they are diagnosed with bipolar depression.
Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) includes a number of different categories:
1. Atypical depression: This is characterized by extremes (such as experiencing alternating episodes of excessive sleep with insomnia), significant weight gain due to comfort eating, a feeling of heaviness in the limbs, and social impairment. The person usually feels hypersensitive in social situations as they expect to be rejected by others.
