Long Time Since My Last Post

It’s been a really long time since my last post. Unfortunately, it was because of all my writing has been dedicated and directed in areas which I am not fond of. Well, hopefully that is behind me now and I can write blog posts rather than serious official writings that I despise.

I think him back and look forward to writing and posting on my blog. There is definitely no shortage of things for me to write and rant about now.

 

THERE IS NO DEGREE FOR PTSD

PTSD GOES UNTREATED

     While there are probably other conditions that are not properly treated, PTSD in my opinion is among the most. It’s not that they do not try, or have ill intentions. They just don’t know how to treat it properly. This is because they do not understand it on a professional or personal basis. The severity of this condition is much more then any literature can attempt to explain.

     PTSD in my opinion and personal experience is one of the most misunderstood psychological conditions that remain for the most part untreated. PTSD is not a new condition, however, given the huge amount of veterans returning with this, it is not something that should or could be ignored.

     There needs to be some FORMAL TREATMENT or protocol for ALL SERVICE MEMBERS following active duty. There should also be a professional that is trained and qualified to treat PTSD. In every other medical field the Dr. is trained in a specific field …. Podiatrist, Cardiologist, Neurologist, Dermatologist, Endocrinologist, and so on…….

WHY ARE MENTAL HEALTH CARE PRACTICERS NOT BOUND TO A SPECIFIC ??????

What I love about Quotes (Creating them not copying)

There is something about a well designed quote that I can’t begin to explain. THIS WOULD BE A PERFECT EXAMPLE TO CREATE A QUOTE. Because, I could go on and on for pages explaining this or if I phrase my quotes in such a way that the words strategically selected and positioned can explain 20 pages of thoughts in less than a couple sentences. ………..A good quote to me has not only content, it also has interpretational depth with layers for those analytical people like myself to discover.

JUST TO REMIND EVERYONE- I HAVE VERY WEAK WRITING SKILLS, AND VERY TO NO EDUCATION IN ENGLISH REGARDLESS OF MY EXTENSIVE / EXPENSIVE COLLEGE EDUCATION. SPELLING, GRAMMAR, PRONOUNS, ADJECTIVES ADVERBS, ECT……. I WOULDN’T PASS GRAMMAR SCHOOL LOL…… GOOD THINK MY FIELD WAS PSYCHOLOGY WHERE THEY WERE NOT VERY CONCERNED WITH WRITING ABILITY.

I DO BELIEVE THAT BEING OVER ANALYTICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL APPLICATION TO WORDS, TONE, STATEMENTS, ECT PLAYS IT PART IN MY STRUGGLE WHEN I WRITE. I COULD SAY SOMETHING OUT LOUD PERFECTLY, YET ONCE I PUT IT ON PAPER OR TEXT THAT IS WHEN MY STRUGGLE BEGINS. **KNOWING THAT THE READER IS OPEN TO INTERPRETATION BASED ON THE WORDS THEMSELVES DISASSOCIATED FROM ANY EMOTIONAL OR PERSONALITY THAT GIVES THEM MEANING. OTHERWISE THEY ARE JUST A COLLECTION OF LETTERS, WORDS, SENTENCES.

SO, AN EXAMPLE HOW I WOULD TRY TO QUOTE THE ABOVE

“A DICTIONARY CAN PROVIDE A DEFINITION TO A WORD, BUT, ONLY A PERSON IS ABLE TO GIVE A MEANING TO A WORD”

THE HORRORS BEFORE MAKING CERTAIN CALLS

I am pretty sure that everybody can relate to this. Those phone calls, or discussions we really do not want to have, but can no longer evade. A lot of anxiety starts to build up as you get closer and closer to the time you need to make that call. This anxiety can be built up that day, week or sometimes even months prior! Your mind just keeps racing around and around in circles wishing for someway to avoid it.  Once you get it over with, you are relieved, and at the same time you realize that the experience YOU had leading up to that moment was far worse than dealing with the actual situation.

“THE WIZARD OF OZ” MY CRAZY INTERPRETATION- OR NOT-

POSSIBLE PSYCHOLOGICAL PERCEPTION TO THE STORY OF “THE WIZARD OF OZ”

This one of those things that came to me out of nowhere, completely unexpected, and have no idea what caused it to pop up! Whatever the reason, I began seeing a very legitimate and rational psychological application that my interpretation of the story seems to fit.

IT’S BEEN MANY YEARS SINCE I’VE WATCHED IT….. EVEN STILL, I’M PRETTY SURE THIS IS HOW THE STORY GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS-****READ MY UPDATE I PUT IN THE COMMENTS**** I WANT TO KEEP MY ORIGINAL POST UNEDITED… ANYTHING I’M GOING TO ADD AFTER WILL BE IN COMMENTS SO I CAN KEEP MY ORIGINAL UNEDITED VERSION 

AFTER SHE LOOSES CONSCIOUSNESS! AFTER THE TORNADO

Dorothy, is following the yellow brick road leading to the Wizard of Oz in Emerald City…. Along the way she comes across a Lion, Scarecrow, and the Tin Man…

These characters (INSIDE HER MIND) all were missing something! Courage, a Brain, and a heart…… da da da da dah…..

-I’m not even going to get into the wicked witch (neighbor toto bit before this unconsciousness), or the relevance of any other characters (right now) ! lol

BUT!

PUT TOGETHER ALL THE “TRAITS” OR “NEEDS” OF HER “UNCONSCIOUS””FRIENDS” AS SHE FOLLOWED THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD…. JUST THINK ABOUT THESE TRAITS/QUALITIES BEING APPLIED TO AN INDIVIDUAL—- IT’S LIKE THIS STORY WAS A DEPICTION OF PSYCHOLOGICAL COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY, OR AWARENESS. LOL  ——

(THE ROAD LED TO THE WIZARD, AND IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, THE WIZARD WAS ACTUALLY NOT EVEN A WIZARD AT ALL! -THANKS TOTO!- HE DIDN’T GIVE THEM ANYTHING EXCEPT FOR RECOGNITION THAT THEY ALREADY ATTAINED WHATEVER IT WAS ON THIER OWN DURING THIS JOURNEY….) NO? YES?

BUT!

RIGHT AFTER THAT, SHE JUST WANTS TO CLICK HER HEELS TO “GO HOME” TOO MUCH FOR HER TO HANDLE I GUESS….

MAYBE, SHE COULDN’T HANDLE BEING IN A LOGICAL AND MENTAL STATE OF COMPLETENESS – BECAUSE SHE REALLY JUST WANTED TO GO HOME! WHERE EVERYTHING WAS “NORMAL” AGAIN LOL

FOLLOWED THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD ALL THE WAY TO THE ANSWERS, AND THE GREAT OZ!-

THAN RIGHT BACK TO -“THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME”

— THIS SEEMS TO STILL BE A COMMON BEHAVIOR FOR PEOPLE….. PUTTING IN SO MUCH EFFORT TO FIND AN ANSWER TO SOMETHING THEY MOST LIKLEY WON’T BE ABLE TO ACCEPT, THAN TURN/RUN AWAY FROM IT SO THEY CAN  RETURN TO “NORMALITY” … BUT AT LEAST THEY KNOW THE ANSWER LOL

WHEN YOU SEEM LOST, OTHERS MIGHT TRY AND HELP YOU SEE THE WAY (QUOTE)

“IT IS USUALLY DURING TIMES OF NEED THAT OTHERS WILL WANT TO HELP YOU SEE THE WAY OUT. AS GOOD AS THIER INTENTIONS MAY BE, REMEMBER THAT THIS IS ONLY AN OFFERING OF THIER VIEW. YOU SHOULD STILL ULTIMATELY COME TO RESOLVE SEEING IT YOUR WAY, NOT THIERS.”

ACTING NATURAL (QUOTE)

“SOME PEOPLE PUT SO MUCH EFFORT INTO TRYING TO ACT NATURALLY? THEY ALL FAIL TO REALIZE THAT ANY EFFORT WOULD AUTOMATICALLY NEGATE THE POSSIBILITY OF BEING NATURAL!”

JUST FOR ARGUMENT

I’M NOT ONE TO ARGUE LOL

BUT

AN ARGUMENT, BY DEFINITION, IS (AN EXCHANGE OF DIVERGING OR OPPOSITE VIEWS, TYPICALLY A HEATED OR ANGRY ONE)…….

MY QUESTION IS – WHY ARE OPPOSING IDEAS OR VIEWS USUALLY EXCHANGED WITH SUCH RESISTANCE AND DEFIANCE? RATHER THAN BEING WELCOME AND DESIRED?

I’VE SAID IT MANY TIMES, IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS……..BUT, AGAIN I’LL SAY –

OPPOSING THOUGHTS ARE MORE THAN WELCOME! THEY ARE ACTUALLY BEING ASKED FOR AND NEEDED!!!!!!!

EVEN THOSE ABLE TO THINK UNLIMITED THOUGHTS, ARE STILL LIMITED BY THIER THOUGHTS!!!!!  THERE IS AN IMMEASURABLE VALUE TO THOUGHTS CONTRIBUTED BY OTHERS    CAN NOT EVEN DESCRIBE IT — 

ARE THEY YOUR THOUGHTS? (QUOTE)

“ANYONE WITH THOUGHTS CONSISTENT WITH GENERAL ACCEPTANCE, MIGHT WANT TO QUESTION THE ORIGINALITY, AND QUALITY OF THIER THOUGHTS”

KNOWING SOMETHING- (QUOTE)

“THOSE WHO THINK THEY KNOW SOMETHING ONLY FAIL TO REALIZE THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN BE KNOWN. YOU CAN REASON WITH A PERSON THAT BELIEVES SOMETHING, BUT NOT WITH SOMEONE WHO CLAIMS TO KNOW SOMETHING.”
