floating bookshelf

How do you guys like my new super-shelf? I’ve been lusting after this floating shelf since I first saw it, and now it is taking its proper place as comic book holder.

anonymous asked:

I have DPDR, and these days every time I stop moving /something/ inanimate is moving. The furniture is breathing, the walls are tilting, the bookshelf is floating upwards, etc. I have been stressed and anxious and that is making it worse. I see flashes of color that aren't there. Objects I look at change shape. I fear that inanimate objects are sentient. Are these hallucinations? Is this normal for DPDR? I feel like visual distortions aren't talked about as much as other aspects of dissociation.

I know exactly what you mean, it can make me feel really dizzy and in fact quite disorientated, I had some trouble with vomiting and bumping into objects around me a lot as it was like i not only couldn’t touch watch i was seeing from the derealisation symptoms but also like they were visually changing. changing independently so it wasn’t like my eyes were just acting up as some objects would be more distorted than others. carpets are the worst for this, repetitive patterns, that i have to walk and orientate over?! its always doctors offices too that have the most violently moving patterns aha, but i try not to look down, walking up slopes and crossing roads can be scary as my perception of distance is all ‘wrong’, (roads with traffic are dangerous and i often misjudge traffic as of the visual issues and have ended up in some risky situations so make sure you are getting treatment!), i see flashing lights on say bathroom doors with speckled marble plastic designs, and some people describe objects changing colour as a very common effect, sitting in the shower and growing bigger or smaller, the shower or room im in shrinking or the floors rising and i feel im falling through it, pathways move around me and i can’t tell where im walking sometimes, the list could go on aha. But i completely agree with you! when i was trying to explain my visual issues to firstly optomitrists to then mental health workers and doctors i pretty much got the same strange looks from both groups, but despite this, apparently, it is a common symptom! although very distressing and can affect daily functioning to an extreme in some cases doctors dont seem to notice it as such a debilitating symptom. the only way i know to ‘reduce’ it is to kind of experience the world out the ‘corner of my eye’, and that way without fully letting my brain focus attention to the world around me there is less motion (as it is created in the brain rather than eye), i do the same for reading text as dissociation effects my ability to visually and mentally process language, a sort of guess words and auto piolet read, letting my autopilot guide me when walking too (although this method can further dissociative state, i only do it to kind of make sure im not stuck in the 50/50 state where im aware enough to see the issues and violent dissociative symptoms im experiencing, to block it out almost) but i only do this as my visual symptoms are not treated yet!!. I experience the same with walking outdoors, it can be even more scary when the whole outdoors .im not a doctor obviously only someone that has been through the healthcare system for my dissociative disorders. which is why ive only described it as a symptom like language like visual disturbances and distortion but i think (i might be wrong) that hallucinations are a ‘sysmptom’ word so technically they are visual hallucinations ? though i don't know if hallucination is exclusive to completely new objects or forms appearing in someone's sight that aren’t there or can also be alterations of already visable objects in a space.

Im from the UK so theres no such thing as psycriatric service dogs or mental health dogs to treat mental health issues so people in the UK with my symptoms will struggle to get the same support as those with similar partial blindness symptoms, if they receve any support at all so many become homebound out of fear of their lacking vision getting them into dangerious situations or accidents, so im seriously glad you brought up this topic! as it is geniounly under discussed, even in the dpdr and dissociative comunity, as i know it was the first issue that brought me to the doctors office because of how it effected my quality of life and safety and then how long it took to get the right help for me.

so thanks again anon for your ask! 💕, and becuse it is a symptom of dpdr i think it is treated when the dpdr is treated appropreatly so no doubt if you find the treatment care plan best suited for you these horrible side effects of the disorder will be gone or at the very least reduced. i wish you the best and hope your dpdr is at least less intense as soon as possible for you ! wishing you the best xx

how did you do the floating bookshelf?

OKAY SO because I’m cheap and Amazon refuses to ship me their floating bookshelves I ant to a hardware store and bought some of my own “L” shaped brackets. 

Now you need to gather the other things. You need one book (hardcover) that will have to be sacrificed. You need glue (I used hot glue gun stuff. A glue stick won’t work you need something with a thicker consistency and a bit of it). You need a wall and a drill and screws. 

So open up your hardcover book from the back. You want the bracket to rest between the hardcover and the last page. (good photo skills tilly)

Now you’re going to put a truck load (expression of speech) of glue on the bracket and hardcover page. It needs to be stuck to the hardcover stuff. Put glue on the top of the bracket too and then force that book closed (with the bracket inside) Keep it weighted down or clamp it or sit on it or put a brick on it until it dries. 

SO BY NOW IT’S DRIED and you’ve got your book stuck to this metal thing. You go to the place that has luckily been chosen and your drill/screw that into the wall. Make sure it’s tight. 

Then you just stack other books on top and TA-DA. (Careful using the “L” brackets though because they’re not as strong as the one you can get from Amazon. Mine are a bit rocky when I’m moving books around on them but they hold up my books easily.)

I’m obsessed with bookshelves. When I go into a room that’s the first, if not the only, thing I notice. I’m drawn to them. They’re so beautiful and you never really know what to expect when you find yourself standing in front of one. I just want a reading room and floating bookshelves, that’s it.
