THIS! THIS THIS FUCKING THIS.
Wait no stop
In Japan, radiation creates monsters (Godzilla) and in America radiation creates superheroes
Shockingly, it’s almost like Japan and America have very different narratives surrounding nuclear fallout. Now, if we all think very very hard, maybe someone could think of why this might be.

People with depression or bipolar disorder often feel their thinking
ability has gotten “fuzzy”, or less sharp than before their symptoms
began. Now, researchers have shown in a very large study that effect is
indeed real – and rooted in brain activity differences that show up on
advanced brain scans.
What’s more, the results add to the mounting evidence that these
conditions both fall on a spectrum of mood disorders, rather than being
completely unrelated. That could transform the way doctors and patients
think about, diagnose and treat them.
In a new paper in the journal BRAIN, researchers from the University of Michigan Medical School and Depression Center
and their colleagues report the results of tests they gave to 612 women
– more than two-thirds of whom had experienced either major depression
or bipolar disorder. The researchers also present data from detailed
brain scans of 52 of the women, who took tests while brain scans were
The number of patients involved is large for this kind of mental
health study – which makes the findings more meaningful. The researchers
pooled data from several U-M studies, including the Prechter Longitudinal Study of Bipolar Disorder. They focused on results from women to take gender differences out of the mix.
Seen as groups, women with depression or bipolar disorder did equally
badly on the test, which required sustained concentration. The test
asked them to react rapidly when certain letters flashed briefly on a
screen, amid a random sequence of other letters. Compared with the group
with no mental health conditions, the groups with either diagnosis
lagged noticeably on this standard test of cognitive control.
And while many individual women with depression or bipolar scored as
well on the test as healthy participants, nearly all the test-takers in
the bottom 5 percent of performers had one of the two mood disorders.
On the brain scans, the researchers found that the women with
depression or bipolar disorder had different levels of activity than
healthy women in a particular area of the brain called the right
posterior parietal cortex. In those with depression, the activity in
this area was higher than in healthy individuals, while in those with
bipolar disorder it was lower. The area where the differences were seen
helps control “executive function” – activities such as working memory,
problem solving and reasoning.
“In all, we show a shared cognitive dysfunction in women with mood
disorders, which were pronounced in the cognitive control tests and more
nuanced in scans,” says Kelly Ryan, Ph.D., a U-M neuropsychologist and
lead author of the study.
“These findings support the idea of seeing mood disorders
dimensionally, as a continuum of function to dysfunction across
illnesses that are more alike than distinct,” adds Ryan, who sees
patients as a clinical assistant professor in the U-M Department of Psychiatry.
“Traditionally in psychiatry we look at a specific diagnosis, or
category. But the neurobiology is not categorical – we’re not finding
huge differences between what clinicians see as categories of disease.
This raises questions about traditional diagnoses.”
The fact that there’s a stairway to heaven and a highway to hell tells you a lot about the anticipated traffic
– Chances are their room is a disaster and they have -846 motivation to do anything about it. Helping them tidy up will make them feel a little less overwhelmed.
– Do their laundry. Even small chores seem to pile up when a person is depressed and not having clean clothes won’t make them feel any better. Washing their bedding is also great.
– Try to convince them to go for a short walk with you. There is a good chance they will feel a lot better after.
– If you can’t get them outside, at least open a window for fresh air and let some sunshine in.
– Prepare them a healthy meal with some fresh fruit. Many depressed people fall into bad eating patterns.
– If they aren’t eating enough, make sure they are taking a multi vitamin since not getting enough of a vitamin causes depression
– Make them a warm, nice smelling bath. Aromatherapy is a great way to treat depression and anxiety.
– Write them a letter or card to read for when they’re feeling really bad.
– Make them a recovery playlist with some of their favourite songs and anything up lifting.
– Make them laugh.
– Make them a cup of tea and sit with them.
– Listen to them and try to understand what they’re feeling.
Wish someone would do 1 of these with me/ for me.
People talk a lot about how Harry Potter taught them about friendship and bravery and love overcoming evil etc and of course I think that’s very important but like…
Harry Potter also taught an entire generation of kids that the news media can’t always be trusted to tell the truth, that the government can often be corrupt or incompetent, that the legal system isn’t always right, that the people in power don’t always have your best interests at heart. That bad things sometimes happen to good people, that your heroes aren’t always as perfect as you think they are, that even those with the best intentions can be wrong, that everyone can make mistakes and that often in order to make things right it takes a lot of hard work and sacrifice.
…and I think in a way that’s every bit as important as the more positive messages.
