How Freud may explain habits. A list of habits explained using the psychodynamic approach to psychology.

I decided to lighten my mood today, and pretty much distract myself. (I havent blogged in a few days) I thought, I love psychology, blogging is a distraction, let's do something fun with it today.... I find the psychodynamic Theory, in general, well...fascinating, and amusing. I don't necessarily believe this theory, but funnily enough, theories…

Good Day or Bad Day? It’s All How You Look at it – Six Steps to Positive Thinking

Neurodivergent Rebel

Is the racoon looking in or is he looking out?  Either way he can climb that fence – unless he is locked in a cage. We can’t tell the perspective.

Our joy, and perhaps even our curse, as human beings often comes from our ability to chose the way we will view and interpret the world.

People who are able to grow a more sunny outlook on things are happier and have less stress than those who tend to focus on problems.

It seems like a no brainer – always think about the best parts of every situation. Still, many of us find ourselves stuck on the negatives in front of us.

If we are fortunate we discover, and master, positive thinking at a younger age. Looking around at people of all ages, it is painfully obvious (and sad) that some people will go a lifetime and never uncover the answer.

Do I sabotage relationships unconsciously? Do I neglect? And the Riley-Day Syndrome – the painless life…

After looking at self-destructive behaviour, I realized, that most of the self-destructive behaviour is UNCONSCIOUS. (Yes there is more to it then just the extreme, suicide, check it out here and here) I started thinking….Do I do some self-destructive behaviour without realizing? after all apparently, some of them are UNCONSCIOUS, and there was a feeling…

Self-Confidence Self-Pity, behaviout modification, and Reduplicative Paramnesia Syndrome….

After putting together my last few blogs (‘Alien Hand Syndrome’, self-destructive behaviour, behaviour modification and Why do we do stupid things? Some interesting facts about our behaviour, aaaand, becoming an animal…Lycanthropy Syndrome) I started thinking....Do i do some self-destructive behaviour without realizing? after all apparently, some of them are UNCONSCIOUS, and there was a feeling of familiarity…

Overwhelmed.

Brilliant coping strategy at play

Discovering Sooz


Im lying awake… Finding the world the most overhoverwhelming place. Reading the news is too much. The world is terrifying and the media exacerbates that beyond any reasonable belief. I end up worrying about worrying. . I know, worrying doesnt help anything.

Maybe if I write a few of my worries down then… A problem shared, and all that!

Politics
Obviously the incoming American President has caused almost a tsunami of hate, changes and all round unrest. It scares me, theres so many changes and people agreeing to things which are, in my mind utterly ridiculous. The media obviously reports it in such a way to get maximum sympathy to the side of the cause they think most deserves it.

War
War is a daily worry and has been for a long time. I worry how we would ever cope. The country has changed so much since the second world…

My Theory About Stress & Invisible Illnesses

Interesting theory, the mind Is very powerful

Invisible Illnesses

I have read through many blogs about people having chronic illnesses, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis and many other invisible illnesses. I have talked to people over the years of my time dealing with invisible illnesses and came to notice that most people with chronic pain, fibromyalgia, interstitial cystitis, and other illnesses, have had trauma in their lives before developing symptoms of these illnesses.

I have the theory that pure traumatic stress has caused our bodies to develop these illnesses or syndromes. And once one illness develops, the body becomes weakened, leading to more stress, leaving the body free to develop more illnesses which leads to even  more stress.

It wasn’t until after PTSD, that I developed any of my invisible illnesses. I had a migraine occasionally, but they were not an issue until after the traumatic event. I had never heard of interstitial cystitis or fibromyalgia until after the PTSD.

I…

Why do we do stupid things? Some interesting facts about our behaviour, aaaand, becoming an animal…Lycanthropy Syndrome

So yesterdays blog got me thinking (‘Alien Hand Syndrome’, self-destructive behaviour, behaviour modification) If, just about everyone has engaged in a self-destructive behavior at some point in their lives, including  engaging in risky behaviors (gambling, unprotected sex, and substance abuse), having dysfunctional relationships, and neglecting one’s health, or intentional physical harm to yourself (cutting, banging…
