Minni's Nest


I never know what to write when a site suddenly asks for a description. I suppose I'm supposed to write about myself, but it's like there's a limit to how much I can write so I'll be able to See what I'm writing, and I've never been a fan of blind writing, because? I'm a typo queen! I'd like all the people in the world to love me, but that's not possible, just like it's impossible for me to see what I'm writing here! So unnerving! I'm 24 and turning a year older on November. Oh! And I'm a girl. I don't even remember if I put a space in that just now, oh well.

I'm sorry, I'm writing nonsense. I'm known for writing nonsense. Anyway, I'm a fangirl and a nerd for anime and sorts, and I also cosplay my many many fandoms, be the bands, musicals or a-ni-me. So, if you read me, that's what you'll find here. Be my guest, take a look~

Ask me anything ♥

Does anyone else have that OTP where person A can be shipped with literally anyone and you’d enjoy it but the second you see person B with anyone else you cringe?

help I’m having emotions about a cartoon antidepressant trying to be useful

DID YOU GUYS SERIOUSLY GIF AN ABILIFY COMMERCIAL 

yes but look at it, it cares about her and just wants to help her be able to function. It’s like “I know you’re sad. here, I’ll help you.”

LIKE OKAY THOUGH can I explain why this is exceedingly brilliant??  Because when anti-depressants work right, that’s what they DO.  They don’t make you happy or emotionless or unhealthy in any way, they make you FUNCTIONAL.  They make it so that a depressed person who can barely get out of bed can start to support themselves again and more importantly, start to THINK for themselves again without the permeating presence of depression.

Depression is a cyclical disease, that tells you to think a certain way, and, because you’re depressed, you generally believe it, and then things get worse and worse.  The ONLY thing anti-depressants do is to STOP that cycle in its tracks!!  Which is something to be ecstatic about and celebrated, even if you don’t realize it at the time, because when you’re depressed, getting out of bed is climbing Mount Everest.  Antidepressants help stop that cycle so that one day soon, getting out of bed can JUST be getting out of bed.  They don’t even expedite the recovery process in most cases, they just make recovery POSSIBLE IN THE FIRST PLACE.  So this little guy is portrayed with a fuckton more accuracy than I ever expected from a commercial.

It’s back and adorable

Honestly, that was the massive difference I saw when I finally got on meds after a decade of resisting the idea.

I.

Could.

DO THINGS.

It was like being a fucking superhero all of a sudden! Hold down a job long-term? Alright. Go to the store? Sure, I’ll stop by after work! Accept invitations to get a drink after work with coworkers or do lunch with the department? Sounds fun! Need to do laundry or clean the kitchen? Bleh, but ok, it does need to get done.

As opposed to “stress grinding me to bits and exhausting me so I can barely think and end up quitting or sabotaging myself after a couple months”, “oh god no it’s ok I will just eat crackers for the next eight meals to avoid going grocery shopping I can subsist on simple carbs alone right?”, “oh god oh god oh god I want to cry with exhaustion at the idea of going out with people but if I say no they’ll think I hate them and they won’t like me anymore”, and “it’s too much I can’t make myself do it because it’s so fucking overwhelming I have anxiety attacks when I try to even walk into the kitchen”, respectively.

Especially since the hardest part of depression for me was the broken motivation link. I read something once that described it as getting in your car, turning the key, and the engine just sputtering and not turning over. I could think “hey I need to do thing”, then “okay I’m gonna go do thing”, “alright it’s time to go do thing”…and nothing would happen. Some crucial connection in my brain just would not work, could not bridge the gap between decision and action.

Did the antidepressants stop me from also being a lazy motherfucker sometimes and putting stuff off just cause I don’t wanna do it? Lol no. I still do that. But it no longer takes a superhuman effort to convince my body to get up and do stuff.

THAT is what my meds gave me. Functionality. I can now screw up my life on my own merits, rather than out of helplessness in the face of misfiring neural circuits.

The Doorway Effect: Why your brain won’t let you remember what you were doing before you came in here
I work in a lab, and the way our lab is set up, there are two adjacent rooms, connected by both an outer hallway and an inner doorway. I do most of my work on one side, but every time I walk over to the other side to grab a reagent or a box of tips, I completely forget what I was after. This leads to a lot of me standing with one hand on the freezer door and grumbling, “What the hell was I doing?” It got to where all I had to say was “Every damn time” and my labmate would laugh. Finally, when I explained to our new labmate why I was standing next to his bench with a glazed look in my eyes, he was able to shed some light. “Oh, yeah, that’s a well-documented phenomenon,” he said. “Doorways wipe your memory.”
Being the gung-ho new science blogger that I am, I decided to investigate. And it’s true! Well, doorways don’t literally wipe your memory. But they do encourage your brain to dump whatever it was working on before and get ready to do something new. In one study, participants played a video game in which they had to carry an object either across a room or into a new room. Then they were given a quiz. Participants who passed through a doorway had more trouble remembering what they were doing. It didn’t matter if the video game display was made smaller and less immersive, or if the participants performed the same task in an actual room—the results were similar. Returning to the room where they had begun the task didn’t help: even context didn’t serve to jog folks’ memories.
The researchers wrote that their results are consistent with what they call an “event model” of memory. They say the brain keeps some information ready to go at all times, but it can’t hold on to everything. So it takes advantage of what the researchers called an “event boundary,” like a doorway into a new room, to dump the old info and start over. Apparently my brain doesn’t care that my timer has seconds to go—if I have to go into the other room, I’m doing something new, and can’t remember that my previous task was antibody, idiot, you needed antibody.
Read more at Scientific American, or the original study.

I finally learned why I completely space when I cross to the other side of the lab, and that I’m apparently not alone.

this is actually kind of great and it’s nice to know there’s something behind that constant spacing out whenever i enter a different place

FINALLY AN EXPLANATION
