mentally blind

Yall need to stop boycotting Spilt

Okay, I usually don’t come on here with my own opinions but I feel the need to speak up. And fuck all yall haters.

Split is the most mental illness empowering movie I have ever seen.

M. Night Shaymalan used great care in handling both illnesses displayed (DID & PTSD) throughout the film. James McAvoy’s performance is well portrayed, chilling, and beautiful. I never felt like his character was a bad person. What I saw was a good man struggling with an illness in his brain and trying to live in a world that broke and triggered him constantly.

The movie itself is, at times, hard to watch but that is expected for a Shaymalan film. In true Shaymalan fashion, this movie is filmed in an artistic way that forces you to face some hard truths without actually having to shove it in your face.

I honestly feel that every person with any kind of mental illness needs to see this movie. I personally walked out of the movie last night feeling empowered and even more accepting of myself because for once the characters with mental illness had the upper hand in both bad and good ways and I had witnessed a movie that not only understood how things can be for a mentally ill person but was able to display both the up and down sides of the illness.

And to top it all off there is a surprise at the end that completely turns the film on it’s head and even changes the world that you believe the film is in.

So basically what I am trying to say is don’t bash this movie until you have seen it. Go see it and if you still feel like it displays mental illness poorly then hate on it all you want.

I, however, want to thank Mr. Shaymalan and his cast and crew for a tense, beautiful, well researched and well put together peice of cinema. This is what movies were meant to be. Thank you for all of your hard work.

Oh my Chuck!! you are right my friend. 

I can’t believe I even dedicate a blog to this lie.
Thank you very much, now I see the light. 
I will now close my account and burn all the material I was reblogging the last months to stop spreading its false message. 

Please join me in the burning of false propaganda and how my twisted imagination can make or ship anything like Destiel from them.
But thanks to your mighty intervention I see the light brother.
Let’s burn this misleading and false idolatry Imaginary (arranged in an random order, not of my creation, and taken from various sources that I hope don’t mind, or can please send me their inks so I can identify every one of them) of the poisonous cult of Destiel.

Police Have Shot Dead 385 People In Five Months!!!

U.S. police have shot and killed 385 people during the first five months of this year, a rate of more than two a day, the Washington Post reported on Saturday.


The death rate is more than twice that tallied by the federal government over the past decade, a count that officials concede is incomplete, the newspaper said.

The analysis is based on data the Post is compiling on every fatal shooting by police in 2015, as well as of every officer killed by gunfire in the line of duty.

“We are never going to reduce the number of police shootings if we don’t begin to accurately track this information,” said Jim Bueermann, president of the Police Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving law enforcement.

The Post analysis comes as a national debate is raging over the police use of deadly force, especially against minorities.

Federal Bureau of Investigation records over the past decade show about 400 fatal police shootings a year, or an average of 1.1 deaths a day. Reporting of shootings by police agencies is voluntary.

But the Post’s analysis indicates the daily death toll for 2015 is close to 2.6 as of Friday. At that pace, police will have shot and killed nearly 1,000 people by the end of the year, the paper said.

The Post’s analysis showed that about half the victims were white, half minority. Among unarmed victims, two-thirds were black or Hispanic.

Based on census numbers for the areas where the killings took place, blacks were killed at three times the rate of whites or other minorities.

The victims ranged in age from 16 to 83. More than 80 percent were armed with potentially lethal objects, mostly guns. Ninety-two victims were identified as mentally ill.

Even a blind man can see what’s going on..

Touching Base with Ancoms

Where we can agree:

1. Dismantling the State


Both ancaps and ancoms want an abolition of coercive State power. Disarming the systematic oppressors is how we will end systematic oppression. 

2. Human Entitlement to the Product of our Labor

While we disagree on how capital fits into the equation (or if it fits at all), both ancaps and ancoms agree that the product of our labor is an extension of the right to self-ownership and non-coercion. 

3. Right to Life

All anarchists agree that humans have an inherent right to stay alive. Where we differ is how that right applies.

Ancaps believe that negative rights, like the right not to be murdered or assaulted, cover the right to live by enabling people to acquire their means of survival without interference. Ancoms, on the other hand, believe that positive rights to things like food, water, and shelter are needed to truly guarantee the right to live.

This is a significant difference, but I believe our intentions are the same - we want people to be able to stay alive without interference. 

4. Minority Rights

A core part of anti-Statism is the protection of minorities from State persecution. LGBTQA+, women, religious minorities, people of color, non-binary people, and all other marginalized members of society should enjoy the same inherent rights as everyone else. Both ancaps and ancoms want to dismantle the State to stop persecution of the historically oppressed. 

5. Peace and Good-Will

Regardless of our differences in philosophy, I truly believe that most ancaps and most ancoms want to see a world that is better for everyone. We’re tired of hierarchy and coercion being substitutes for voluntary exchange and authentic compassion. A world built on oppression, coercion, thievery, and blind mob mentality is one we’d like to see give way to a brighter future, with the oppressive arm of the State forever broken. And hey, we’re in the minority. Can we really afford to be at each other’s throats? I think we already know the answer.

IM’s comment about robron fans having to take their counsellors off speed dial is so gross for many reasons including (but not limited to):
- implying that young woman are somehow “crazy” for being angry.
- turning a blind eye to the fact that many robron fans are mentally ill.
- turning a blind eye to the fact that many robron fans are members of the LGBT community, who have higher rates of mental illness than our straight counterparts.
- apprantly forgetting that both Robert and Aaron are mentally ill
- just generally disgusting tbh like why even say that?

We have defined disability as a matter of social justice—disability residing not in paralysis but in stairs without an accompanying ramp, not in blindness but in the lack of Braille and audio-recorded books. Disability itself doesn’t live solely in depression or anxiety but rather in a whole host of stereotypes and damaging material realities, not in dyslexia but in teaching methods unwilling to flex, not in lupus or multiple sclerosis but in the belief that certain bodily conditions are a fate worse than death.

Smiley is a beautiful golden retriever that was born in a puppy mill without any eyes. Other than the obvious, he also has a few other differences than your average golden retriever; he’s smaller, has larger teeth, and his back legs are slightly bowed. These disadvantages don’t get Smiley down nor do they hinder his love for life and humans. Not only does Smiley live with an amazing family, he also works as a therapy dog for children with special needs, the elderly, and the mentally ill.

I need somebody to shout at me on Monday to do the following;

  1. Make a dentists appointment
  2. Make an opticians appointment
  3. Make a doctors appointment

because I have been meaning to do all of these things for weeks (my mum stopped nagging me about the docs appointment when I stopped telling her about the pain in my head LOL) and I guess I should do all of these things before my little body falls to pieces?!

PLEASE SOMEBODY SHOUT AT ME

Ichazo’s Enneagram: Type Four

Passion: Envy
Virtue: Equanimity, Emotional Balance
Fixation: Melancholy
Holy Idea: Holy Origin

PASSION:

Envy. Envy results from the loss of contact with the Virtue of Equanimity, and leads to the feeling that something is missing in us. We are not sure what it is, but other people seem to be happier, better off than us. Rather than investigate the source of our unease, in the throes of envy, we focus on comparing ourselves with others, believing that they possess qualities that we do not have, that others have had better childhoods, parents, or luck than us. Other people are somehow more alive and more whole. Other people seem to be having more productive lives and careers and wonderful marriages, and envy leads us to believe that these things are not possible for us. (“No one suffers the way I do. ”) In short, envy sees in others qualities that we would like to have for our own self-completion, but perpetuates the sense of inner lack without dealing with the root problem.

What can Operatives teach us about Observation?

When thinking about Operatives, secret agents or Espionage officers the unusual mostly comes to mind. Whether it is fancy cars, unaccounted for tricks, gadgets and suits, however the real beauty resides beneath the hood. Operatives can be quite lethal in dangerous situations, they are trained and primed to function in the most unpleasant scenarios. Always accounting for the worst, and prepared to engage in the face of danger. After all, the slightest mistakes could result in death, political complications or more often leakage of information (should the operative be not so fortunate). The trick here does not revolve around technique as much as it has to do with the mindset these operatives adhere to, in order to be fully engaged when the occasion favors. Of course these habits/mindset could be devised through some articulated models, but these models are quite useless if not equipped with the right method of thought.

Observation is key

One of the most essential elements/skills an Operative must master during their training, is their ability to be engage and observant when necessary. Out there in the field (And I assure you, I am not experienced as much as I am educated and informed) It is vital that Operatives should keep an eye out for the unhidden and the unseen. This requires full utilization of the five sense, and a little cooperation from the memory. A good operative would want to be selective in the information he/she gathers out there in the field, and they should also account for all the least obvious objects/notes that should be observed. It is very common to miss out on information which is not presented/obvious. The Omission neglect cognitive bias is very common, especially when once if faced with complicated and tempting data to subdue to in a short time. This sort of mental pressure could blind the observer from the missing facts/information. Marketers are experts at using such technique when trying to sell products to consumers, of course the least of skeptics and critical thinkers fall prey to such devious mental tricks. However, Omission neglect is not the only fiend facing observation, there is another psychological bias which most people are not immune to, even operatives.

The bias is common for Attentional Blindness. According to (Irvin Rock (1922–1995) was an American experimential psychologist who studied visual perception at the University of California at Berkeley) Attentional Blindness is defined as Inattentional blindness, also known as perceptual blindness, is a psychological lack of attention that is not associated with any vision defects or deficits. It may be further defined as the event in which an individual fails to recognize an unexpected stimulus that is in plain sight.


Operatives are thus trained to keep calm while collecting information, and remain un-judgmental with pieces of data they acquire. This sense of objectivity provides them with a competitive edge which aides them later on during the hypothesis phase. Now, I would like to return the former basics of observation, the five sense. The first would be sight, Operatives are trained to be actives observers. They are always on the lookout for any deviations that breach their pre-established baseline. These deviations force operatives to raise red flags and take notes of any elements which alerts as out of the ordinary. But it is very inconvenient to rely on the sight by itself, Observers need to remember and note the smell, and feel of their objects, this combination of senses makes Operatives out the in the field less prone to fall victim for their fallible memory. As many of us believe, the memory is not recorded but constructed on the spot every time a memory is recalled. These constant and repetitive constructions leave out small details as they gather impulses from many neurons in the brain, leaving the memory deformed and defragmented. Although the memory is not inconsistent with the Observation phase, the fact should still be noted in order to reduce the amount of error in the near future. Operatives are thus advised to keep their observations either documented or noted continuously, to leave out the element of human error.

It’s sad that there’s not a lot of support services for those who have lost their hearing or eyesight. Like yeah there’s courses we can take to learn braille or sign language, but how many of us do? Also when I say support services i mean as in organisations that focus purely supporting them with their emotional needs

Some background

Before I get far into talking about my agnosia, I’d like to give a little background information into my other diagnoses and how they affect me.

My agnosia was discovered as an indirect result of a severe concussion I had in late September last year. The recovery period of this concussion took about six months, and I’m still in recovery for the spinal injury I had with the same incident. Because of the concussion, I had to take nearly four months entirely off of school, and when I could return, my capacity for schoolwork was very low, and I’ve only recently returned to being able to do as much cognitive work as normal. I had almost six months of make-up school work piled up; I’m still working on catching up in school, all while dealing with the tons and tons of doctor’s appointments and various therapies (for reference, I’m doing three days of occupational therapy, a day of vision therapy, and a day of therapy with my psychologist every week).

Anyway, since before the concussion, I’ve dealt with generalized anxiety and panic attacks, depression, and OCD. Shortly after I returned to school, my OCD was getting gradually worse and worse; eventually, my rituals were taking up so much time that I was severely sleep deprived and my health was failing. I was having frequent psychogenic seizures. Because of how far I’d degenerated, I spent several weeks in the intensive program at a psychiatric hospital. Through the help of this treatment, I reduced my time spent on rituals from more than three hours per day to less than twenty minutes. As I reduced the ritual time, I was less sleep deprived and my seizures decreased in frequency.

Additionally, I struggle with misophonia due to my auditory processing disorder. Essentially, my auditory system overcompensates for my lack of visual capabilities. I take in and process information too quickly, so I benefit from hearing faster, rather than slower, speech.

The point is, almost all of my diagnoses correlate in some way or another to my agnosia. In some ways, it’s almost a game of “which came first, the chicken or the egg” with my anxiety and my agnosia. I have been anxious for as long as I have been conscious; am I anxious because I have anxiety, or am I anxious because I have agnosia and am constantly barraged by stimuli I can’t understand? Either way, everything is connected, and I see all my diagnoses as an irrevocable part of who I am, regardless of how much I would prefer not to have them.

Okay but can you imagine how painful it actually was for Rhysand to objectify his Mate Under the Mountain night after night? To have to make her feel as if she was being violated and drug her to take away her pain, part of which he was responsible for?

Can you imagine him watching her nearly be slaughtered, having to contemplate whether or not he’d be able to winnow into the battle soon enough to save her, dooming his entire Court in the process? Or the true meaning of his triumphant smiles as he watched her succeed, the knowledge that yes, she truly was special—how impressive she is.

Can you imagine the fear, the anguish the night he winnowed into her cell, after being abused for the countless time, unable to tell her, unable to hold her? How broken he was seeing her broken?

Seeing her corpse. Seeing her run to the man who helped murder his family with love in her eyes.

Can you imagine the first nights after he felt the bond snap into place—the full realization that his Mate was being taken to bed by such a horrible person, being mentally and emotionally abused, blinded.

Rhysand is probably one of the most complex, beautiful characters in modern day fiction. Four for you, Rhysand.
