Has My Mother Lost Her Mind?

From a teen in the U.S.: I am concerned that my mother has lost her mind. Let me start off by saying that unlike many similar stories, my mother is not elderly. She is 36 and I am 19, the oldest of her children.I have always shared a strong emotional connection with my mother. Ever since I was a child, I have been her biggest fan. I can remember being absolutely ecstatic for her to come home from work when I was younger so that I could spend time with her. Lately I feel very distant from her, she is a completely different person and I no longer feel that I share the same connection, a feeling that is far worse than heartbreak.It began three years ago, very slowly at first. My mom was always a working woman who was independent and supported herself. She recently remarried (Maybe 8 years ago) and became a stay at home mom to my little sister. I believe this is where the issue ultimately stems from.It started with her skin. My mom has always been vehemently vain and placed a lot of impor…

Nobody motivates today's workers. If it doesn't come from within, it doesn't come. Fun helps remove the barriers that allow people to motivate themselves. --Herman Cain

Cyberbullying Victims May Be Twice as Likely to Self-Harm and Show Suicidal Behaviors

Children and young people under 25 who are victims of cyberbullying are more than twice as likely to self-harm and exhibit suicidal behavior, according to a new U.K. study.But new research also suggests that it is not just the victims of cyberbullying that are more vulnerable to suicidal behaviors. Bullies also are at higher risk of experiencing suicidal thoughts and behaviors.Cyberbullying is using electronic communication to bully someone else, for instance by sending intimidating, threatening or unpleasant messages using social media, researchers explain.The systematic review study, led by Professor Ann John at Swansea University Medical School in collaboration with researchers from the Universities of Oxford and Birmingham, looked at more than 150,000 children and young people across 30 countries over a 21-year period.The findings, published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, highlighted the significant impact that cyberbullying — both as bullies and victims — can have o…

Hour of Mindfulness Meditation May Help Anxiety, Cardiovascular Health

Just a single one-hour session of mindfulness meditation can offer psychological and cardiovascular benefits to adults with mild to moderate anxiety, according to a new study by researchers at Michigan Technological University.Although there is growing scientific evidence that meditation over the course of several weeks reduces anxiety, there has been little comprehensive research on the benefits of a single meditation session.In the new study, the researchers wanted to investigate the effects of acute mindfulness on cognition and the cardiovascular system in 14 study participants. Their findings, presented at the 2018 Experimental Biology Meeting in San Diego, may help improve how anti-anxiety therapies and interventions are designed.The research team found that 60 minutes after meditating, the participants showed lower resting heart rates and reduction in aortic pulsatile load, the amount of change in blood pressure between diastole and systole of each heartbeat multiplied by heart …

Had a Very Bad Past and Want to Make Up for It

I don’t know what to say or where to begin, it’s a long story of my everyday life. I think it starts with my family (either neglect or siblings abusing emotionally and physically.I’ve never been the strong kind or the kind that did well with violence around, my heart would pound, I try to avoid it all, no matter how simple, I even got traumatized once ( I don’t know if its considered trauma but I’ve seen my siblings fight as a child and everything turned into slow-motion, then i fell on my knees and started crying), I love animals and would never hurt them (or at least I thought I wouldn’t), and here the real problem begins (the results I think of what I’ve lived as a child). as a teenager I felt really weak even my friends have noticed it, so I went to seek help (and not the good/real kind) I met someone from a website, I found out after awhile the bad things that he made me do that he’s a sadistic pathetic sociopath, he’s been using me for his pleasure with sadism (wanting me hurtin…
