The rest of my thoughts on Andrea Yates.

In talks I have often cited Andrea Yates, one of many women to have killed her children because god supposedly told her to do so.  I’ve done this to draw a parallel: Christians think Abraham was noble for obeying the voices he heard commanding him to commit filicide, but they think Andrea Yates was insane.

Your morning happiness: for every villain, a thousand heroes.

In the wake of professional League of Legends player Promise fallen victim to a fraud that could have (and may have) destroyed his career and his attempt to take his own life, the League of Legends community has swiftly pulled together.

Professional gaming rocked by Korean player’s attempted suicide.

Today’s morning happiness post will be the second post today.  However, as an avid League of Legends player, I wanted to write about a tragedy that has struck the world of professional gaming, perhaps morbidly signaling e-sports reaching the “big time”. In Korea, e-sports superstars are celebrities on the scale of our most idolized athletes in [Read More...]

On calling religion a mental illness.

The big topic around the atheist blogosphere the last couple of days is whether or not religion should be called a mental illness.  To spare you wondering where I stand, I’ll just lead off by saying that I don’t think it is even if at times religion is scarcely distinguishable from mental illness. There are [Read More...]

Linda Harvey: being gay is like being anorexic.

Mission America’s Linda Harvey gave an interview to the ironically named American Family Associan’s radio show the other day where she compared homosexuality (which the American Psychological Association considers to be a perfectly normal facet of human psychology) to anorexia (which the American Psychological Association considers to be a psychological disorder).  This is akin to [Read More...]

Update on me.

Hey again.  Saturday I felt a lot better and actually wound up eating a bit too much.  Boy, I paid the price for that on Sunday.  I did manage to get up to about 1400 calories near the end of the day though when I was feeling a bit better. Still having some problems this [Read More...]

Update #3

Hey everybody.  I did manage to get up to about 900 calories yesterday. This morning I feel better, but it’s the way I feel better that makes it not a good thing.  Because I ate so little yesterday today I feel 30 lbs. lighter.  It feels good.  It feels like success. It is in this [Read More...]

Update #2.

Hey all.  Michaelyn’s home from school and we’re chilling.  My 3pm alarm went off and I couldn’t eat.  I got to the kitchen and just couldn’t do it.  So Michaelyn made a Lean Cuisine (240 calories) and sat with me while I got it down.  The first few bites were really tough…I could taste my [Read More...]

Today sucks.

Here comes another one of those posts that’s a pain to write.  However, I made a commitment to be public about my disorder and besides, a writer needs to write what’s on his mind and this morning this is what’s on my mind. I woke up in a bad place with food.  For the last [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: love and understanding in Kansas.

Yesterday I wrote about how some of my anorexic tendencies are resurfacing.  So it wasn’t a total waste of a post I also wrote about how I manage.  One of the things I do is avoid mirrors.  At my lowest points I still hallucinate with mirrors (though this hasn’t happened in some time, praise be [Read More...]
