Or, you know, “woman wears dress”.

Daily Mail, what the ever loving fuck. 

I can’t decide if this is more sexist or more ageist, or just equally both.

The Four Temperaments: Melancholia - Black Bile

Melancholy: from the Greek melas-, meaning “black” - the same root found in melanin -, and kholé-, or “bile”

An overabundance of black bile in the system was believed to cause introversion, with a strong tendency towards depression, moodiness, and “the vapours”. Later, while this trait was believed to be easily imbalanced, it was not believed to be entirely negative - “melancholics” were thought to be studious and perfectionist in their works, and good at observation.

People with a chronic overabundance of this bile were believed to be possessed by the devil by Hippocrates, but by the age of Galen (500 years later), that belief was no longer considered accurate. The failure to re-balance the humours was at that point believed to be because of an insufficiently considered diet, and a predisposition towards a certain set of traits.

Facets of Melancholia:

  • Element: Earth (cold and dry)
  • Season: Autumn
  • Planet: Saturn
  • Direction: South
  • Organ: Spleen
  • Opposing humour: Blood
  • Characteristics: Introversion, perfectionism, retention, guarded nature, despondence, sleeplessness. Balance between feminine and masculine.
  • Associated diseases: Myriad, including nearly all non-schizoid mental disorders, paralysis or stiffness of joints, cachexia, slow digestion, and cancers. Disorders associated with a lack of blood, such as ischemia (restricted bloodflow to an area, often causing tissue damage), were also associated with black bile.

To re-balance black bile, warming and moist herbs and herbal tinctures were the most common cure. Adding “bulky” (fibrous) foods and eliminating nightshade vegetables (such as tomatoes, eggplant, and potatoes) was a common later suggestion, during the 18th century.

Stewed meat and blood-benefiting (so as to counteract the black bile) foods such as nettle were also suggested by Avicenna.

Audio Cut & Run

lovefushsia:

So do they use accents on audio books? I try and try but I can never hear Ty & Zane properly in my head :-( Maybe time to have someone else read them to me (other than my husband who puts on silly voices and calls Ty T.Y!!).

They do use accents.  There are two different narrators, tho, so results may vary  ;)

Sawyer Allerde does C&R and S&S.  Sean Crisdon does F&C, D&C and A&M.  I love them all, but most of the minions I’ve talked to prefer Sean’s delivery style - I crack up every time I hear him say McCoy’s line “I will fire you all. on. the. spot!” in D&C.

Schizophrenia: patients usually have less brain tissue
Major Depression: scans show less brain activity in depressed brain
Alzheimer’s: brain tissue significantly shrinks, hippocampus is usually the first region to go
ADHD: less brain activity in the frontal cortex (area associated with decision making) 
OCD: high brain activity 
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): hippocampal volume reduction (area involved in memory) and increased activation of the amygdala (area involved in emotional responses) 

This is so important! I usually don’t reblog posts but people need to understand that mental illnesses are NO CHOICE! You cannot get over it, or snap with your fingers and just be okay again. It takes constant fixing and a lot of strength to get out of this.So to everyone who judges people with mental disorders: people don’t get a choice to develop a disorder or not, but being stupid and telling them to get over it is a choice.PLEASE DONT JUDGE THINGS UNLESS YOU UNDERSTAND!
