There is no metaphor, there is no simile,
                                                                                and there is no rhetoric
To nudge us to their caress.
The trees remain the trees, God help us.
And memory, for all its warmth,
                                                 is merely the things we forgot to forget.

—Charles Wright, from “Dude,” in Caribou (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 2014)

Never really realized how much fat was inbetween organs too!

This is why people shouldn’t get discouraged when they first start losing weight. Its not gonna come off your tummy and thighs first its gonna come off between the organs.. where it shouldn’t be!

These visualizations are some of my biggest short-term motivators. They help me remember that a lot of the physical changes that occur from healthy habits are in parts we can’t see.

I couldn’t agree with Risa more. It’s easy to get discouraged when you feel like your hard work isn’t yielding any results, but things like this help me to remember that progress isn’t always visible. But that certainly doesn’t mean it isn’t occurring.

  • self diagnosis does NOT contribute to mental illness stigma.
  • self diagnosis is NOT the same thing as ableism
  • self diagnosis does NOT make your institutional diagnosis less valid
  • your diagnosis is NOT a club where you get to police who is allowed to be a member

The bottom line is: mental illness does not only exist within the institution of psychiatry. If you have a diagnosis from a psychiatrist, that is a privilege.

Scientists have found that memories may be passed down through generations in our DNA
New research from Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. During the tests they learned that that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations.
According to the Telegraph, Dr Brian Dias, from the department of psychiatry at Emory University, said: ”From a translational perspective, our results allow us to appreciate how the experiences of a parent, before even conceiving offspring, markedly influence both structure and function in the nervous system of subsequent generations.
