    Depression is stupid.

    I have been in a depressive episode for a while. My house went off the rails in filth. I hate to say, but I haven't cleaned out my cat boxes or rabbit cage in a month (at least). My garbage can is overflowing and I have resorted to throwing my trash in the boxes I've accumulated from Dinnerly deliveries that have just been sitting and taking up space in my kitchen. My sink is stacked high with dishes and I don't remember the last time I saw the bottom of it.

    But today I made myself change out the litter boxes and clean the rabbit cage. I also cleaned the shower that hasn't been cleaned in months.

    I'm getting there. Things have a little more meaning now that I'm vaccinated and I don't have as much fear of this pandemic.

    I got to see my friends last weekend for the first time since early March 2020. That's a long time considering we were on a 10 year streak of seeing each other at least every two or three months.

    It's hard. I'm clawing my way out. And I can only imagine how much worse it would have been if I wasn't on medication.

    MY DANCE THERAPY #REFITREV WORKOUT for #trauma #OCD #schizoaffectivedisorder & #ADHD

    I’m not a Refit instructor but wannabe!

    Dance has been my prayer, when I can find the words I set how I feel, my earnest hope, wish, and my solemn request for help or expression of thanks to music addressed to God as an object of worship, and God who knows the thoughts of men and heart’s desires knows what to pray through me.

    They say insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results, so channel those compulsions into dance and dance until there’s peaceful relief.

    People don’t see how OCD is torture; they might stop and stare, trying to figure out what they could do for them.

    #OCD IS LIKE… "Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a landmine. The landmine is me. After the explosion, I spent the rest of the day putting pieces together." — Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing, a famous SciFi writer.

    Turn what was meant to harm you into good and your sufferings through compulsions in to fitness entertainment as you get mindful awareness and focused attention that helps OCD survivors gain victory over their disease through dance!

    LET'S GO BZRK on OCD

    An adult dance fitness group that doesn't just dance together, but does life together, through REFIT® Revolution (a community-centered,value-positive fitness experience designed to engage the heart as a muscle and a soul). I'll post a workout routine for the week that we'll set out to do. Beneficial for both physical and mental health, dance therapy can be used for stress reduction, disease prevention, and mood management. In addition, DMT's physical component offers increased muscular strength, coordination, mobility, and decreased muscular tension.

    • Put rituals or Compulsions that are repetitive behaviors or mental acts that are carried out to reduce the discomfort associated with the obsessions as dance movements.

    • select your song to dance to based on what an artist speaks to you that you can relate to and release that energy that you’ve repressed through your dance therapy, sometimes the artist speaks it better than we can.

    Vision: To bring tranquility and restorative power to those of unsound mind while empowering to live victorious over OCD through dancercize.

    Mission: A world free from mental illness.

    Motto: Take what masters you and master it, beat OCD into submission.

    Scripture: Romans 15:1-7, 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 & 1 Corinthians 6:12-13

    Ocd makes you go and look berserk. So why not flip it and go berserk on OCD to turn tormenting turmoil into something good that brings about healing and growth?

    DUAL CONTROL - adj - (of an aircraft or a vehicle) having two sets of controls, one of which is used by the instructor : a dual-control pilot trainer. - noun - (usu. dual controls) two such sets of controls in an aircraft or vehicle.

    We are using dance as our dual control to train our recurring thoughts and irrational behaviors into where we want them to go under God's order.

    Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

    "People with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) are distressed by recurring thoughts and/or irrational behaviors that can be so time consuming that they interfere with work and social relationships. In severe cases of OCD, these thoughts and behaviors dominate virtually every minute of every day" (ref. 'Movies & Mental Illness: Anxiety Disorder,' Wedding, Boyd and Niemiec, pg. 14).

    "Obsessions are 'intrusive, inappropriate, recurrent and persistent thoughts, impulses, or images that cause marked anxiety or distress' (DSM-IV-TR). Obsessions are of greater magnitude than the everyday worry that is part of almost all our lives. Those with OCD repeatedly try to suppress these thoughts, but the very act of suppression serves to increase their intensity. These recurrent thoughts are disagreeable and alien to the sense of self (i.e., ego-dystonic). Common obsessional themes include harming others (especially children or helpless individuals), contamination with diseases such as AIDS, blasphemous thoughts n sexual misbehavior. Obsessions can also coexist with other disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorders" (ref. 'Movies & Mental Illness: Anxiety Disorder,' Wedding, Boyd and Niemiec, pg. 14).

    "Compulsions are repetitive behaviors or mental acts that are carried out to reduce the discomfort associated with the obsessions. Sometimes there is a logical connection between (e.g., repeated hand washing may help prevent contamination from germs). However, in other cases there is no logical connection between the two (e.g., the patient who feels a compulsive need to sing the first few lines of a popular commercial before pulling away from every stoplight knows there is no meaningful connection between the behavior and the likelihood of an accident" (ref. 'Movies & Mental Illness: Anxiety Disorder,' Wedding, Boyd and Niemiec, pg. 15).

    According to NCBI.NLM.NIH.gov. "As per data Thirty-six percent of the patients of OCD report lifetime suicidal thoughts and 11% have a history of attempted suicide(Torres AR, Ramos-Cerqueira AT, et al, 2011). There is a reasonable probability that the patient of OCDhave suicidal thoughts, plans or actually attempt suicide."

    Why is OCD so painful? OCD often latches onto some of our deepest fears. In my case, it was lying to people I care about (my readers) and manipulating them without meaning to. This dissonance (caused by intrusive thoughts, which I discussed in a previous Crazy Talk column) is a big part of what makes this disorder so very painful.

    Left untreated, OCD can lead to other severe mental health conditions, such as anxiety and panic attacks, and depression. Untreated mental health conditions are also a significant source of drug and alcohol addiction. People will often turn to drugs or alcohol to cope with the distress of an untreated mental disorder.

    OCD is a chronic, debilitating condition that affects every aspect of your life. Symptoms can sometimes be severe. A combination of medication and therapy is usually quite effective, but it can take time to work. There are also promising new treatments for severe OCD.

    How OCD can ruin your life? OCD can affect people in different ways. Some people may spend much of their day carrying out various compulsions and be unable to get out of the house or manage normal activities. Others may appear to be coping with day-to-day life while still suffering a huge amount of distress from obsessive thoughts.

    Can OCD turn into psychosis? Studies also indicate that obsessions can transform into delusions [3], and that OCD and symptoms of OCD can be associated with the development of psychotic disorder over time [4]. An increased prevalence of OCD in patients with first-episode psychosis has also been found [5].

    "People who suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder are preoccupied with perfectionism, orderliness and the need for control.” – Dr. Ben Michaelis, one minute dianosis, Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder in a Minute

    It never rains, but it pours.

    One of my aunts has had a stroke.

    Physically, she’s going to be mostly fine.  But her life is a shambles in every other way and nobody in my extended family, me included, knows how to help her because she’s denying she needs any help.

    And while discussing this with my mother, she let something slip about the circumstances of my grandmother’s death that I was NOT aware of, and which means I’m essentially going to have to go through the grieving process for her all over again, five years after the fact.  

    And I just...I’m finally recognizing that I’ve been in a low-level depressive episode since last August, and I’ve finally felt like I was beginning to come out of it within the last couple of weeks, and now...nope.  And I don’t even know when I’m going to be able to see my therapist next.

    I know I haven't posted here much. I've been in an emotional trench. I know I'll be okay, and it isn't even the deepest hole I've been in before lol. But it's hard to give all the effort when I'm this low.

    But, my sister bought me a plane ticket to come home and see her in August, and I am so excited for it. It's nice to have something to look forward to, too. We are both near 200lbs right now, and have made a pact to try to reach 'one'derland by the time I fly out! Fun motivation, I think.

    I haven't gained or lost any weight since I went to the beach with my family in April, which is good, but not quite good enough. These past few days I've been putting in more effort, so hopefully I will see changes again soon. If i keep it up of course.

    Today I ate:

    -smoothie

    -spicy sausage pasta

    -teriyaki chicken with cabbage and quinoa

    I stayed within my calorie goal. I also went on a long exploration walk with the dogs before all the storms moved in, and I'm glad I went when I went. We're under tornado watch again. Poor pups didn't get an evening walk.

    Hopefully having a few things to really look forward to will help me pull myself up again.

Sometimes there is a logical connection between (e.g., repeated hand washing may help prevent contamination from germs). However, in other cases there is no logical connection between the two (e.g., the patient who feels a compulsive need to sing the first few lines of a popular commercial before pulling away from every stoplight knows there is no meaningful connection between the behavior and the likelihood of an accident" (ref. 'Movies & Mental Illness: Anxiety Disorder,' Wedding, Boyd and Niemiec, pg. 15).

    According to NCBI.NLM.NIH.gov. "As per data Thirty-six percent of the patients of OCD report lifetime suicidal thoughts and 11% have a history of attempted suicide(Torres AR, Ramos-Cerqueira AT, et al, 2011). There is a reasonable probability that the patient of OCDhave suicidal thoughts, plans or actually attempt suicide."

    Why is OCD so painful? OCD often latches onto some of our deepest fears. In my case, it was lying to people I care about (my readers) and manipulating them without meaning to. This dissonance (caused by intrusive thoughts, which I discussed in a previous Crazy Talk column) is a big part of what makes this disorder so very painful.

    Left untreated, OCD can lead to other severe mental health conditions, such as anxiety and panic attacks, and depression. Untreated mental health conditions are also a significant source of drug and alcohol addiction. People will often turn to drugs or alcohol to cope with the distress of an untreated mental disorder.

    OCD is a chronic, debilitating condition that affects every aspect of your life. Symptoms can sometimes be severe. A combination of medication and therapy is usually quite effective, but it can take time to work. There are also promising new treatments for severe OCD.

    How OCD can ruin your life? OCD can affect people in different ways. Some people may spend much of their day carrying out various compulsions and be unable to get out of the house or manage normal activities. Others may appear to be coping with day-to-day life while still suffering a huge amount of distress from obsessive thoughts.

    Can OCD turn into psychosis? Studies also indicate that obsessions can transform into delusions [3], and that OCD and symptoms of OCD can be associated with the development of psychotic disorder over time [4]. An increased prevalence of OCD in patients with first-episode psychosis has also been found [5].

    MY DANCE THERAPY #REFITREV WORKOUT for #trauma #OCD #schizoaffectivedisorder & #ADHD

    I’m not a Refit instructor but wannabe!

    Dance has been my prayer, when I can find the words I set how I feel, my earnest hope, wish, and my solemn request for help or expression of thanks to music addressed to God as an object of worship, and God who knows the thoughts of men and heart’s desires knows what to pray through me.

    They say insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results, so channel those compulsions into dance and dance until there’s peaceful relief.

    People don’t see how OCD is torture; they might stop and stare, trying to figure out what they could do for them.

    #OCD IS LIKE… "Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a landmine. The landmine is me. After the explosion, I spent the rest of the day putting pieces together." — Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing, a famous SciFi writer.

    Turn what was meant to harm you into good and your sufferings through compulsions in to fitness entertainment as you get mindful awareness and focused attention that helps OCD survivors gain victory over their disease through dance!

    LET'S GO BZRK on OCD

    An adult dance fitness group that doesn't just dance together, but does life together, through REFIT® Revolution (a community-centered,value-positive fitness experience designed to engage the heart as a muscle and a soul). I'll post a workout routine for the week that we'll set out to do. Beneficial for both physical and mental health, dance therapy can be used for stress reduction, disease prevention, and mood management. In addition, DMT's physical component offers increased muscular strength, coordination, mobility, and decreased muscular tension.

    • Put rituals or Compulsions that are repetitive behaviors or mental acts that are carried out to reduce the discomfort associated with the obsessions as dance movements.

    • select your song to dance to based on what an artist speaks to you that you can relate to and release that energy that you’ve repressed through your dance therapy, sometimes the artist speaks it better than we can.

    Vision: To bring tranquility and restorative power to those of unsound mind while empowering to live victorious over OCD through dancercize.

    Mission: A world free from mental illness.

    Motto: Take what masters you and master it, beat OCD into submission.

    Scripture: Romans 15:1-7, 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 & 1 Corinthians 6:12-13

    Ocd makes you go and look berserk. So why not flip it and go berserk on OCD to turn tormenting turmoil into something good that brings about healing and growth?

    DUAL CONTROL - adj - (of an aircraft or a vehicle) having two sets of controls, one of which is used by the instructor : a dual-control pilot trainer. - noun - (usu. dual controls) two such sets of controls in an aircraft or vehicle.

    We are using dance as our dual control to train our recurring thoughts and irrational behaviors into where we want them to go under God's order.

    Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

    "People with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) are distressed by recurring thoughts and/or irrational behaviors that can be so time consuming that they interfere with work and social relationships. In severe cases of OCD, these thoughts and behaviors dominate virtually every minute of every day" (ref. 'Movies & Mental Illness: Anxiety Disorder,' Wedding, Boyd and Niemiec, pg. 14).

    "Obsessions are 'intrusive, inappropriate, recurrent and persistent thoughts, impulses, or images that cause marked anxiety or distress' (DSM-IV-TR). Obsessions are of greater magnitude than the everyday worry that is part of almost all our lives. Those with OCD repeatedly try to suppress these thoughts, but the very act of suppression serves to increase their intensity. These recurrent thoughts are disagreeable and alien to the sense of self (i.e., ego-dystonic). Common obsessional themes include harming others (especially children or helpless individuals), contamination with diseases such as AIDS, blasphemous thoughts n sexual misbehavior. Obsessions can also coexist with other disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorders" (ref. 'Movies & Mental Illness: Anxiety Disorder,' Wedding, Boyd and Niemiec, pg. 14).

    "Compulsions are repetitive behaviors or mental acts that are carried out to reduce the discomfort associated with the obsessions.
