6 Ways To Grab Your Mental Health Issues By The Balls

6 Ways To Grab Your Mental Health Issues By The Balls

It's the little things that count

Ever feel like you’re going to pee yourself almost every other minute when you’re at work or are suffocated by social anxiety and it gets worse when you’re forced to interact with fellow human beings? Or how about completely squashed by depression when you can’t leave your own bed because the cinder block is beyond what you can lift? Fear not for you are not alone, and I am sharing my six favorite techniques to conquer your mental health disorder like a badass and to take control like a boss!

1. Take Your Meds RELIGIOUSLY

No matter what, make sure you take your meds and if you forget, call up your local pharmacy for advice. If you’re going to be out all day and won't be able to go back and forth, I recommend putting your meds in an empty pill bottle ahead of time and you'll be set to go!

2. Watch Something Absolutely Ludicrous and Hysterical

Remember to make it so funny that your tears of laughter reap the seeds while your tears of pain merely dry on the ground.

3. Self Deprecating Humor Is a Medicine That You Don't Need Covered by Insurance

So utilize that! Life isn't so serious after all!

4. Masturbate

I'm not kidding. It's a proven stress reliever and also good exercise... I mean, if you hate the gym but need the endorphins, why not use what you have on hand? *pun intended*

5. Eat Dark Chocolate

This is another proven medicine that adds more fun to the experience beyond the pill and simple water.


We aren't perfect. We will never be anything but who we were meant to be. And of course, it's so easy to compare yourself to every other single person who appears to be perfect in the eyes of society, but what makes that "perfection" any different from the perfection you already embody? I hope this list can help and inspire whoever is reading, and just remember that you're never alone and there is no shame in whatever disorder you've been blessed with!

13 Gross Things Girls Do That Boys Don't Know About

From a girl, about girls.

There's always talk about how gross boys are all the time, it's now time to talk about how gross maybe even how much more disgusting girls can be. It may not even be disgusting, but just weird, but we are girls. What can we say?

1. Gorilla legs.

It's not that we don't want to...okay, that was a lie. Every girl can agree that they only shave during bathing suit season when you're wearing a dress, or when you're gonna get it on. Basically, If she shaves her legs you're special.

2. When did I last wash this bra again?

We wear the same exact bra, for days, and weeks, and who knows for how long.

3. It's not just the bra's, it's the pants too.

We wear jeans and leggings like twenty times before we think about washing them.

4. We don't wash our hair every day.

Because unwashed hair is the best styling hair. Also because looking good takes too much work.

5. We are always picking at our faces, especially pimples.

As soon as we walk by a mirror, its a must. Car mirrors are awesome to pop those suckers and pluck rampant eyebrow hairs. We pop pimples like its our job.

6. We will live in your clothes.

If you somehow let your significant other or friend wear your sweatshirt you're never getting it back... and she's never taking it off. Girls will wear that sh*t until your scent is gone because we love it.

7. We poop.

Believe it or not... it happens to us too. Women don't make it as much as a show as boys do. We hide it from you and will hold it until you're not around. And you've probably received a lot of selfies on the toilet.

8. The dreaded monthly gift.

Probably the most disgusting thing to ever happen to the human body. But everyone knows about menstruating, but most guys don't understand the other things that come along with it, like the cramps that bring period farts and the nasty bowel movements and blood clots.

9. Finding hair from our head in our butt cheeks.

Yeah, it's a thing. Your head hair crawls it's way down there occasionally.

10. We smell ourselves a lot.

We are super conscious about how we smell...especially down there.

11. We let it fly.

We will hold in our farts from you, but as soon as we are alone... that's a different story. You better hope we don't get too comfortable around you too quick.

12. Sometimes we have to improvise.

Sometimes mother nature likes to come when we aren't ready, or prepared with the supplies. There are numerous occasions where we start bleeding and have to create this bundle of toilet paper and just shove it down there.

13. Looking at our panties and trying to figure out what came out.

Sometimes you just don't know for sure.

To My Fellow Overthinkers, I Promise You Aren't Doing Anything Wrong

It's OK to be an overthinker. I think.

Dear fellow overthinker,

Trust me. I know how hard it can be. You are always analyzing and overthinking a conversation or interaction that you just had with someone. But know that it's OK. It's OK to be an overthinker. Sure, it can be unhealthy and frustrating, but you cannot change who you are.

One thing my mom told me, and something that I will never forget, is that I get 10 minutes to worry about something. A whole 10 minutes. But after that time, I have to move on with my life. Don't let your thoughts bog you down for longer than 10 minutes. Life has so much more to offer. Go out and enjoy it, and live all the experiences available to you.

It can be so easy for us overthinkers to sit there and tear apart the last 24 hours down to the second and over-analyze everything that happened. But it's equally as important to take the conscious effort to do the opposite of just that! Allow yourself those 10 minutes to overthink, and then simply move on. In the long run, that girl who may have brushed you aside when you tried to say hello was probably not upset with you. She was probably just late to a meeting or a class.

Also, don't be afraid to open up to the friends closest to you. I know I often overthink my friendships and my interactions with my friends all the time. I find any and every reason that my friends could possibly be mad at me. Or I may overthink one slightly abrupt response to me because someone is stressed as a sign that my friend is mad at me. Trust me, that is no way to live. Don't let your mind trick you into these lies!

You are beautiful, perfect, and your friends love you. That's right: You, the person who is reading this right now, have done nothing wrong. I know, that's easier said than thought! But really, talk to your friends about how you're feeling. Your feelings are real and valid, but your friends are there to tell you that everything is OK. And honestly, I'm sure they want to know how you're feeling and doing! I recently talked to my best friend about how I have been overthinking so many things, and she was so glad I was honest and open with her. Your friends care about you and want you to be happy. Being open and honest also tends to strengthen friendships.

So if you take one thing away from this, fellow overthinker, let it be that you are doing nothing wrong. It is OK to overthink. But don't let it get to a crippling point where you start to isolate yourself Don't let it all bottle up inside until you explode. Get the help you need. Talk to your family and friends. Be open, and be yourself. There is nothing wrong with you or the fact that you overthink. It's an innate part of being human. Know that your friends are there for you and love you no matter what.

Don't let your mind and thoughts control you.
