A deadly virus has spread through out my whole school and I’m the only survivor , I need a plan to escape. Most of the students and teachers left their laptops and phones here, my plan was to get every electronic device and play a certain song out load on every device. This will attract the zombies and I will be able to escape through the window. Once I jumped out I ran to my car and started the engine. My plan is to go to Walmart and then travel to Dicks sporting good for weapons every week. The top five things I’ll bring with me to say alive is food, water, weapons, health supplies, and people. If you want to survive a zombie apocalypse you have to be able to work with other survivors. I’ll hide in high ground due to the fact that I’ll have
It’s a struggle to get out of bed sometimes, I often just sit there struggling to comprehend the sequence of events which have taken place over the past year. I mean, I’m used to this now, its normal to me, but the fact that this has happened and that I am now ‘disabled’ as people would put it is hard to get my head around. And every time I look down I’m reminded of the pain and the struggle I faced, it’s a physical scar which links me to my grueling past, a physical and emotional journey.
Cancer has a serious effect on the people that have it. There are many different treatments for cancer. People who have cancer can go through a surgery that can remove the tumors in the body and that could remove it and they be in remission. Another one is chemotherapy which causes the patients to become weak and ill, because it is killing the cells in their body that aren’t needed as well as some that are needed. Bone marrow transplants take place in order to build the white blood cell count up. The treatments are very common and have been around for many ages, but they seem to put patients through more pain and uncomfortable situations. Medical marijuana can be used to help treat cancer but not cure it. Many people that have been through the process to get to remission or maybe not make it to remission but reached a point where they do not want to go through any more treatments, and feel that they will be better off just living the rest of
When I was first Diagnosed Bipolar I was ashamed and afraid of what people might think of me. I couldn’t imagine what crazy scenarios people would make up of me that could have led me to my diagnosis. The truth is I had become depressed and manic. I couldn’t sleep, eat and at times I was troubled by my own thoughts. At other times, I slept for day, wouldn’t get out of bed and couldn’t stand myself in the mirror. This didn’t last a day or two this lasted weeks, sometimes months. For months I could go feeling normal, happy, excited and under control and suddenly, BAM it would hit me. It started like a high, I was unstoppable, I could go days without hardly sleeping, I was getting A’s in all my classes, doing homework weeks in advance, becoming

Diagnosis Unknown When you hear the quote-"Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get" from the movie Forest Gump, it may not mean much to you, but it holds true to what my life has been thus far.

Marquiel Dodson 12/10/15 Psychology 201 Dr. Streeter Final Exam I enjoyed every bit of this Introduction to Psychology class. I put together many things about myself and my own life that I didn’t notice before.

“So how is our Jane Doe?” he asked, sinking into a purple armchair and crossing his legs.
My story begins when I looked at the world around me and wondered what it would be like without me. I would stare at the sunset near my home and just wonder. I thought things would function the same. I’m no one who's made a big impact in this world
My first interaction with mental illness was in high school. One of my friends was having trouble in school and had a complicated family life. I did not know how bad it was until I received a message from her talking about suicide. I was taken aback by this because I did not understand how someone could feel this way. This lead me to take a class in psychology during my high school years. This class explained possible risk factors that can lead to mental illness, but I really wanted to understand how you could help. This motivated me to not only take a psychology course in college, but I also applied for the major. As I continued through the program, I was introduced to the different areas of psychology and found one that really peaked my interest.
Darryl: I continued smoking and sexing, it’s a wonder the police never caught me. I frequented places I would have never gone to before using crack. I quickly ran out of money and both my mother and father were sending money to help pay my rent and I was using that to support my habit. I finally came to a moment of clarity that I could not continue on in this manner and I needed help. I contacted both my parents and told them what was happening, neither one of them were happy about hearing that I was addicted to crack. My father sent me a plane ticket to return back to Detroit. After arriving back in Detroit my father had me admitted to an inpatient drug rehab at Henry Ford Hospital. I went through a four-day detox and hospitalization for 28 days. During treatment I was required to attend AA and NA meetings on site, I was given a therapist to help me overcome and face my depression. I attended an outpatient program for over 6 months and attended NA meetings everyday until I was successfully clean for one year. I think my biggest challenge was facing my depression; I had never been to a therapist before because I did not want family and friends to know that I was suffering from mental disorder. I still to this day

The late 50’s were a time of hysteria for the baby boomer generation. The source of hysteria was a hip thrusting, heartthrob by the name of Elvis Presley. He captivated audiences and women and would hold their attention for decades more. One of the many girls he charmed went by
Yet, I am pulled away by a single phrase. One I had not heard since middle school. One I have found to mean nothing but ignorance and immaturity.
