Supreme Consciousness by Boris Pelcer
Turning your mind inward is the only way to have a better understanding of the universe outside your head, for can we ever explore the inky swirlings mysts of the cosmos without first mapping the synaptic space between our own neurons? Prints of the some of the designs are available at Society6.

More and more, it feels like I’m doing a really bad impersonation of myself.

“The closer he looks at the child, the less he sees … The more he looks at it, there’s nothing there. He fears that the more you look at him the less you see. There isn’t anything there.” - John Hughes
An easy fear to share.

I cannot make you understand. I cannot make anyone understand what is happening inside me. I cannot even explain it to myself.

Submission. I had to go get this because it submitted oddly for some reason. If the one who submitted this will drop me a line saying who it was (because tumblr just has to delete my messages if I press publish) I will put your user in this description. sorry!
i have this thing where i am an introvert so sometimes i like to be alone, but that the same time, being alone makes everything about dissociation worse. except for crowds and busy streets and parties. those are even worse.

This actually terrifies me
one of many reasons i don’t have my license. others include randomly being a five year old and general anxiety attacks that come from the idea of being in control of a car and thus peoples lives.

i hate feeling like i am fighting against myself every second. i hate feeling like i am held together by a string that i have to hold taught or i will fall to pieces. i hate feeling some else that isn’t quite definable loom over me like a specter and momentarily take control. i hate feeling powerless and feeling like there must be something wrong with my will power because i can’t stop this thing that is me from doing everything wrong.

Imagine the federal government holding conversations about your privacy - except yours is the only voice not at the table. This is what people with psychiatric disabilities are facing as the House Energy & Commerce Oversight Subcommittee takes up the issue of mental health and privacy rights under HIPAA.
Rep. Tim Murphy, Chair of the House Energy & Commerce Oversight Subcommittee, is holding a hearing this Friday to try and argue that the HIPAA protections that protect the privacy of people seeking mental health services are unnecessary and a threat to public safety. Regrettably, Chairman Murphy has a history of threatening the rights of Americans with psychiatric disabilities. This Friday’s hearing is a continuation of a roundtable Rep. Murphy organized last month to try and showcase the inaccurate idea that people with psychiatric disabilities are more likely to commit violent crimes. Although empirical evidence shows no such link between psychiatric disabilities and violence, the roundtable made no acknowledgement of this simple fact. Furthermore, of all of the many witnesses called to testify, not a single person with a psychiatric disability was invited to share their perspective.
When a caller on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal program asked Rep. Murphy to explain his rationale for excluding the voices of people with psychiatric disabilities from the witness panel, he dismissed the need for the voices of people with disabilities themselves, claiming they would be incapable of testifying and that the most important conversation is one about parents and families’ experiences!
There is a time and a place for discussing improvements to the availability and quality of mental health services. A conversation about violent crime is not that time nor that place. It is inexcusable for public officials to use public safety as justification for an attack on the civil rights of an already marginalized and stigmatized population. Tell Chairman Murphy and Ranking Member DeGette of the House Energy & Commerce Oversight Subcommittee that the disability rights principle of “Nothing About Us, Without Us!” apply in mental health policy too. Don’t let our voices be forgotten.
Sign the petition and shut this shit DOWN.
Fuck shit. I knew this was going to happen in just a matter of time. I knew it. Well, that’s just what my anxiety needed.
Seriously, anyone who follows me, please, please sign this. I don’t know what good it will do, but this is absolutely the worst thing.
Law makers are not doctors, and not all doctors and perfect, and there is NO CLEAR WAY OF KNOWING WHO WILL BE VIOLENT. Like no one has figured out how to tell. Any guesses produce almost all false positives and people still slip by.
In addition, all this will do is keep people who need it from getting treatment.
DID I MENTION MENTALLY ILL PEOPLE ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE THE VICTIMS OF VIOLENT CRIME THAN THE PERPETRATORS?
AND THE MENTALLY ILL PEOPLE ARE LESS LIKELY THAN THE GENERAL PUBLIC TO COMMIT VIOLENT CRIMES?
because it is true.

Clara Lieu, guys. Brilliance in its simplest form.
This project is a visualization of personal experience with depression and anxiety. The condition brought on frequent episodes where I felt emotionally and physically out of control. Unable to “release” myself from these episodes, I waited for the physical limitations of my body to end them. Recounting the affected years, I realize how accustomed I became to depression’s influence; many emotions and feelings belonged to it and not my own personality. After an extended, untreated struggle, a diagnosis brought relief, and the process of unearthing myself from the disease began. (Clara Lieu)
