Ridiculousness.

Al the events in my life that I’m experiencing now, joblessness, stuck in the rut with nothing much to do and literally waiting things out, numerous health issues, last but not least my current hearing impairment are the nasty consequences of a culmination of events which occurred in my teenagehood. I have finally come to…

Things I Learnt From my Ongoing War with PTSD, et al.

I decided to publish this early, making this weekend 2 posts this week! Take it as a comeback gift to all of you readers who have stayed with me. I truly appreciate your readership, even though usually there are few commenters. Also because World Mental Health Day was just three days ago, this sort of…

Eye of the Storm

I’ve heard this saying somewhere that the eye of a storm is the calmest spot. That aptly describes me whenever it’s deadlines looming time. Come Sunday I’ll only have 1 week left to do one of my essays before having just 1 week to do my other. I’ve been panicked all week last week and…

That has unfortunately not come to fruition as my energy levels are shot and I am inexplicably tired these days (bye regular strength training)….

Self-awareness of a different kind.

Somehow it dawned upon me tonight that I should start being more conscious of my online actions such as commenting on news articles on sexual assault.While I do not get emotionally agitated, perhaps it would do my mental health a little better to save my energy for more worthwhile things than commenting on the same…

What is wholeness, really?

I’ve started working out again, since about 8 days ago. It’s a downright irony that my appetite never increased while on my mirtazapine, which apparently is why dieticians counsel young people for the weight gain issue while on it (this info from a diet I can in my church group). Yet, my appetite has seemingly…
