The number of posts each month since the inception of this blog. Pretty scary how revealing metadata can be about one’s life.

Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.

I slept ~12 hours last night, seems excessive.

More like breath to a drowning man.

A drowning man does not always realize how hard he is clenching to the life line. How he pushes his rescuer under in blind panic unaware of the perilous position he puts them in.

But understanding that most people can float if only they slow down, fill their lungs with air and just focus on keeping their face above the surface. Often it is our struggle that gets us. Tires us or causes us to choke on the brine.

That’s not to say the seas some swim in are not stormier than others.

Originally, in the 20s and 30s, the stereotype of someone who was schizophrenic was the housewife who was sad and withdrawn, and would not do her duties as a housewife; would not do the housework. This was the typical case of schizophrenia. And then, in the 60s, something shifted. The actual criteria for schizophrenia shifted. A lot of psychiatrists and hospitals and police were encountering young, angry black men who were part of the civil rights movement. Who were part of the riots – the uprisings – in the Black Power movement. Who were angry. Who were perceiving a conspiracy of power against them, that was called paranoia. They would see it is white privilege, but it was called paranoia. And so we actually see the diagnositc criteria for schizophrenia change. So now you have anger and paranoia and hostility being included as criteria, whereas 30 years before they hadn’t been. Because the stereotype has changed. So there’s a way in which the DSM and the perspectives of the psychiatrists and the doctors who were giving these diagnoses is thoroughly politically constructed, and thoroughly dependent on the culture and context that they’re within.
