There is only one [brain] disease

I don’t know what to call it yet. But give me a chance to explain.

Here are the symptoms:

  • depression
  • obsessive compulsive behavior
  • fear
  • loss of eyesight
  • tiredness [poor sleep]
  • aging
  • anxiety
Mood
  • apathy
  • general discontent
  • guilt
  • hopelessness
  • loss of interest
  • mood swings
  • sadness
Sleep
  • early awakening
  • excess sleepiness
  • insomnia
  • restless sleep
Whole body
  • excessive hunger
  • fatigue
  • loss of appetite
  • restlessness
Behavioral
  •  agitation
  • excessive crying
  • irritability
  • social isolation
Cognitive
  • lack of concentration
  • slowness in activity
  • thoughts of suicide
Weight
  • weight gain
  • weight loss

 

Treatment:

  • Caffeine
  • Glasses
  • SSRIS
  • Stimulants
  • Illicit Drugs
  • Alcohol

Each of these loses their effect over time in the same manner. As the mind develops resistances or weaknesses, depending on how you look at it, it becomes dependent on these drugs [and devices] as their strengths need to gradually increase as the patient’s mind weakens.

Cure:

No known cures at this point. The disease typically progresses as the subject ages. The mind and the body begin to break down. The subject eventually dies of “natural causes.”

So how can I possibly lump all this together? We were all given the most perfect and complex machines to run our bodies, and some of us need to re-calibrate, or even need to relearn how to use them. Our computers catch these loops, and latch on to our treatments, and we can start downward spirals that end up killing us, sooner or later.

Your eyes are the way in. They can change your mind. They are your treatment. You brain is perfectly capable of doing everything that you need it to on its own. Your fears are slowing it down. Fears about the present, the past, or the future. Maybe your dysfunction has the same name as mine, or maybe not.

You were made for happiness. Your mind is a perfect tool that you need to relearn how to use. Fix your vision and fix your mind.

  1. […] It’s associated with OCD, ADD, ADHD, and sleep disorders. This shouldn’t surprise you at this point. We’ve discussed the nature of these diseases and how they are more related than anyone knows. In my opinion, the brain is binary. It’s either working properly or it’s not. And if it’s not, there’s a host of different functions that will be impaired. [see There is only one brain disease] […]
