DISCERNMENT is a function of MIND, i.e. the soul, and not the brain. As is DISCRETION.

So, simply put; if you know people who are not strong in either quality, they may need to seek out assistance to treat their unwell souls.🍎

Gives new meaning to the term #SOS, doesn’t it?Ja?
Dealing With Addiction: #FamilyMatters ✝️ #FamilyValues

As was said in Hosea 5:1, Hear ye this, O priests; and hearken, ye house of Israel; and give ye ear, O house of the king; for judgement is toward you, because ye have been a snare on Mizpah & a net spread upon Tabor. (KJV)
Folks; the economic, and moral enslavement of this world would probably not be possible, were society pivoted around wholesome #FamilyValues. One of the ways they break communities down is through the torpor of the youth; achieved (also) through the chemical reaction ...

Starting June 1, I will tweet a chapter each day from my new book goodreasons.info about how the light of evolutionary biology can dissolve the mists that swirl around mental disorders. Well, some mists for some disorders. @DuttonBooks @hbes2019 @LondonEvolution @ISEMPH
From the Preface: I wanted to write this book as soon as I realized that evolution could explain why bodies are vulnerable to disease. But the rest of medicine had to come first. Why We Get Sick stirred lots of interest. The new book is about why mental illness exists at all.
For each chapter I address the question, "So what?" Saying what is true changes only views unless it also changes what people do. Mental health clinicians who understand evolution do their work differently and better. For all others, self-understanding is valuable in itself.

Today, after extensive @NIDAnews research and @samhsagov support por favor funding for programs and research, there is still #Stigma about #addiction. I still hear people affected by SUDs refer to themselves as “addicts” “junkies” “bangers.” I get the culture, but there is more.
This keeps our loved ones and community members who struggle with #addiction locked into an old pattern of #stigma. We are repeating a process that has never worked. This only helps the heart wrenching results stack up as more and more die from this chronic disease.
72,000 mothers, daughters, sisters, fathers, sons, brothers and more died last year alone from an overdoson drugs. Many of those deaths were related to opioids, and let’s not forget that alcohol is the cause of so many deaths as well. This world needs to get woke about #addiction

Borderline Personality Disorder aka Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder is one of the most misunderstood, stigmatised & complex mental health diagnoses (Thread) #BPD #EUPD
#MentalHealthAwareness
One could write pages relating to the condition BPD and a layman’s understanding would still be incomplete. For this reason I am going to try and keep it short, simple and concise as I can and explain to you what BPD is to me.
BPD is intense feelings of loneliness & an inability to sit with myself without resorting to poor coping behaviours #BPD #EUPD #MentalHealthAwareness

It’s about time we take a more humanistic approach to #pain and #addiction. Policies to mandate dose reductions without risk\benefit assessments are not evidence based and reflect policy makers “attempts to do something”. That something can harm. healthaffairs.org/do/10.1377/hbl…
Here’s another perspective that is still timely. statnews.com/2017/02/24/opi…

This is why I want to #MAGA. #Family.

1. My mom and dad, married 61 years. Both raised in the coalfields of #WV. My dad is LTC-USA (RET), served in #Vietnam, and is 100% VA disabled. My mom raised 3 daughters pretty much by herself!

Where is the #America they loved?
2. My son, pictured here with his father. He served in the #USArmy, and due to his service, is 100% VA disabled. (He suffers from #PTSD and thus, #depression, and, sadly, #addiction.)

Will the #VA be there for him when he's old?
3. My daughter, here with me at her bridal shower. She's an elementary school #teacher, and works 12-hour days, making sure her students get the very best education possible.

Will she be forced to tell her students they can't say Merry Christmas?

1. These are just a few of the people who were betrayed & murdered by the Gov & Doctors b/c they suffered from #ChronicPain.
2. These people were, & millions more are, disabled & being actively & maliciously denied proper medical care b/c of the #OpioidHysteria
3. that has taken over our Government, Insurers, Doctors & Pharmacies. We are, apparently, the acceptable collateral damage in the
