- Schizophrenia: patients usually have less brain tissue
- Major Depression: scans show less brain activity in depressed brain
- Alzheimer’s: brain tissue significantly shrinks, hippocampus is usually the first region to go
- ADHD: less brain activity in the frontal cortex (area associated with decision making)
- OCD: high brain activity
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): hippocampal volume reduction (area involved in memory) and increased activation of the amygdala (area involved in emotional responses)
This is so important! I usually don’t reblog posts but people need to understand that mental illnesses are NO CHOICE! You cannot get over it, or snap with your fingers and just be okay again. It takes constant fixing and a lot of strength to get out of this.
So to everyone who judges people with mental disorders: people don’t get a choice to develop a disorder or not, but being stupid and telling them to get over it is a choice.
PLEASE DONT JUDGE THINGS UNLESS YOU UNDERSTAND!
One of the best videos I’ve seen on this.
He’s the reason why I live sometimes
I literally had no idea this kind of stuff was happening on youtube at such a grand level. I’ve read racist comments and have seen questionable videos before but I never thought that it was so entrenched in not only the fans but also the youtubbers themselves. This is some very scary shit
Add some heat to your Tuesday nights.
when ur parents come back home and u remember all the things u didnt do
I love shopping!
why are people reblogging the short vine version when this exists
Someone took a candid photo of a fight in Ukranian Parliament that is as well-composed as the best renaissance art
this is currently my favorite thing on the entire internet
what if everyone was born wearing a t-shirt and your soulmate had a matching t-shirt and you had to find them
If you had on the same shirt all your life wouldn’t it get dirty, or rip, or not fit you at all because a new born was able to wear it? Would they be brands or generic? Wouldn’t that destroy fashion and cripple the economy as well? That’s what I think would happen.
i clearly didn’t think this post all the way through
