students with serious mental illness were at much greater risk for exhibiting alcohol abuse/dependence and/or nonmedical use of a prescription drug than were students with no mental illness. However, the risk effects posed by the severity of mental illness were strongest where co-occurrence was concerned and weakest with respect to prescription-drug misuse only.

my mind is so big.

someone in the office who is above me in the hierarchy calls me dear when she asks me to do different things. it drives me nuts.

One of the most vital documents every adult should have is a written will. A will is the legal declaration of a person’s mind as to the disposition of his or her property after death. Thus, a will is a way to transfer your property according to your wishes after you die. Although wills are simple to create, about half of all Americans die without one. Personal Finance, 10th ed.

While the DSM-5 Personality and Personality Disorder Work Group is developing a complex hybrid categorical-dimensional approach that retains six specific personality disorder types, the ICD-11 Working Group is promoting a simple dimensional model that rests upon essentially two components: the measurement of severity and the identification of trait domains.

In addition to considering the validity of the proposed specifier, an additional consideration is the potential harmful consequences of using a pejorative label like “callous-unemotional” as part of a diagnosis…there is an empirical literature studying the negative effects of the use of the term “psychopathic traits” when applied to children and adolescents…there is a danger that if terms that seem to connote a less severe disturbance (e.g., “uncaring”) are used for the specifier, this could actually be more harmful by resulting in many children and adolescents with less severe disturbances being diagnosed by clinicians.

I wore perfume today. Do I smell good? I dressed up today. I wore makeup today. I painted my nails today. How do I look? I put on mascara, lipstick, eyeliner. Do I look beautiful?

That’s not even me that you’re smelling or seeing though, so how can you say I smell good, I look beautiful? You aren’t complimenting me, you are merely complimenting my taste. You are attributing me with a bottle I found on a shelf. It’s not my smell you like, it’s a smell I liked. It’s not my face you are appreciating, it’s a powder, a gel, and a liquid that’s covering my smell, my lips, eyes, and nails.
