Giving people space and support does not mean that they will abuse you or your kindness.

“You will never say or do anything to shock me or change my perception of you as a worthy person.”
(All of us deserve to have heard this truth from our parents.)

I’ve chosen to stop running through the rain when I’m caught without an umbrella. I’m learning to settle into my imperfections and unpreparedness while learning to live with the consequences.

It’s OK to love someone who is hurtful and toxic, while keeping them at an arm’s length. This includes family and friends, as well as former business and romantic partners.

Being a good person does not include standing by, silently, while being endangered, shamed, embarrassed, controlled, or abused.

A hangover is, in part, due to an acute withdrawal from the previous night’s alcohol consumption. Hangovers may happen with the consumption of just one alcoholic beverage.

Pediatric and adolescent angst…

Ci, the gender non-binary person from Utah, described the physical symptoms of panic attacks (not the physical symptoms of depression, as Ci had stated) starting in the 3rd grade.
Both diagnoses can give debilitating symptomatology. Both diagnoses often cohabitate the same sufferer.
The misinterpretation of symptoms (by a patient/client) and the misdiagnosis by a medical professional may send a patient/client down the wrong path of therapies for years.

As an aside, many who suffer with undiagnosed, or untreated, panic disorder will often become depressed due to the persistent dysfunction and disability from the panic.

For a variety of reasons, many of our pediatric and adolescent population develop extremely uncomfortable psychological symptoms (loneliness, sadness, fear, shame, embarrassment, anxiety, abandonment, etc).
If there is a significant delay in communicating, or a total lack of communicating, these symptoms to an appropriate, helpful, adult, then the natural drive to “self-explain”, or self-treat these psychological discomforts falls on the youngster, who has to use any source or means available to their young minds.
Often there are seemingly adequate explanations for these discomforts, by observing their friends and family, or by watching and listening to a variety of media.
Self-treatments (anything to decrease the internal tensions and unpleasant feelings) for these youngsters include everything from avoidance, to isolation, to distractions (e.g. screentime), to self-medication, to self harm.
