You’re Not Helping

United States (GREED) – It is another morning I must awaken to. I am fatigued, and a year’s worth of sleep would not help. In a few hours, I will suffer headaches, among other disturbing symptoms. Yet, many people claim my daily battles are fake or made up. Mainstream and alternative media has painted mental illness in a disturbing light. The Citizens Commission for Human Rights argue that mental illness is merely a scheme for profit because it isn’t caused by bacteria. According to their website, certain psychiatrists claim that biochemical imbalances do not exist. Psychology Today states mental health diagnoses Read More

It’s A Strange Money Game

It is the catapult of capitalism, of any society, really. UNDERSTANDING CURRENCY In 1913 President Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act into congress.

Unclean Confessions: The Reality of Addiction

Why do they become so cold; how can they care about ONLY getting the next fix?  Here is some insight from those who have suffered addiction. My only hope is to help all gain some understanding. HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN? There are many reasons someone may decide to start using. It could be for fun, in celebration, for relief of a feeling, pain, anxiety, or practically anything else.

A Short Guide to Unity

Lancaster, Pennsylvania (GREED) – So there I was, sitting at the bar, alone, while my friends drank their beers and molded into their couple-hood respectively. My boredom must have been apparent because a lady approached me: “What’s your favorite song?” “Ummm… Sweet Child of Mine,” I replied. “Okay! Can you dance to that? I’m not a lesbian.” She made sure I understood, “But you look like you need to dance!” So she requested my song and we danced with no strings (or judgement) attached. I will never, I CAN never, forget that platonic princess in soft, shiny armor. She reminded Read More
