The Unique Features of Complex PTSD
“If we could somehow end child abuse and neglect, the eight hundred pages of DSM (and the need for the easier explanations such as DSM-IV Made Easy: The Clinician’s Guide to Diagnosis) would be shrunk to a pamphlet in two generations.” – John Briere The term Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD) was first used in 1992. It originates in the observation that many of the symptoms exhibited by sufferers of PTSD are also found in those who experienced prolonged periods of abuse or neglect as children, including flashbacks, nightmares, insomnia and feelings of fear, often unrelated to any presen...

Dealing with Borderline Personality Disorder
Those with borderline personality disorder (BPD) suffer from a pervasive fear of abandonment and are often triggered into feeling put down or mistreated. They defend against feelings of abandonment, with rage and anger, and become misunderstood when they’re longing for love. In the heat of the moment, they can send the angry text. They can look like a toddler that gets angry, when they protest as a bid for love. It is important to look at what is behind the actual behavior of a borderline person, rather than react. Most of their behavior is a way to communicate how they feel, but it comes out the wrong way. The indiv...

The Day I Tried to End My Life
It was a Monday. May 22, 2017 to be exact. I had been thinking of this day for years, precisely ever since I was 15 years old. I always thought about suicide. It always fascinated me as topic, as I had never truly grasped the idea of why people decided to end their lives, until depression hit me. When I turned 15, everything started to change. My mood started to change, my behavior started to change, as well as social life. Such problems may seem normal at that age, in fact, there had been multiple times where I used to try and find a solution to these problems, however, such answers are impossible to find on the internet....

The Melancholic Artist
For many, the artist is an admirable, cultured poet, living above society, constantly assessing the human condition and nature. The artist is seen as the ultimate division from society, in that they devote so much of their waking and dream life to the fire that burns them — their art. This is an overly romanticized idealization of the artist, possibly because non-artists have only ever known the final result (the image prepared by the artist) to go by in understanding the artist. It is easy to deduce with those results that the artist is philosopher, great genius provided with superior understanding of the human con...
