Family:  The Lost Concept 

  
The idea of family has long been forgotten in today’s culture. People no longer grow up around a family foundation. Then once someone reaches adulthood they are encourage to leave their home and move far away to begin their journey in the world. The structure of family is not based on the amount of members or the sexual orientation but it should be based on a group of individuals that are bound together. A group that is committed to being there for each other throughout the entirety of their lives. Unfortunately the influence we see that is being portrayed in our culture is that family consists of only a few individuals and they feel forced to be in the relationship. You have siblings and cousins that are close when they are kids but become so distant when they get older. Sure people grow differently and choices are made. Goals and interest change but that shouldn’t change the relationship in the family. The family is the foundation for our species. It’s where we pass on values, stories, and love through the generations. We are told that blood is thicker than water. An ideology that I believe is irrevelant. Once a memeber is established as a part of your family then they can never  be replaced or pushed out. Only new additions can be made. The family should be a strong foundation. A stronghold that no outside person can break. Neither should there be any internal struggles be allowed too. It is the responsibility of every memeber of that family to support each other and protect each other. Influences from outside precense will always be around. There will always be people who are jealous and envious. I will not call them enemies, just people that are lost and in search for something they can have of their own. Those people are around and they can be disguised as anyone. That’s why no matter what you and your family stand strong together. The government is not a supporter of the family. They legalize marriage even though it is a thousand year old tradition. Only to tax and make profit from it. They allow divorces, which is an even longer process, as another way to create revenue. We see different lineups of on TV of what a family is and what a family can be. But people misunderstand that television main purpose is to entertain and manipulate the masses. So don’t trust what you see on TV at times. I am not saying that it is wrong or unhealthy to have a single parent family household or adopt kids. I believe that all efforts, time, and energy should be spent on the family first before anything else. If this is done then many of the problems in our present day world will be eliminated. Such as, depression, bullying, low self esteem, and other psychological problems that are based upon the environment in which you were raised. So take the time now to make the change in your life to be more connected to your family, immediate and extended.

Diagnosis is Hypersomnia

  
Last year around July I started to noticed that I was falling asleep while commuting to work. Ok, no big deal. I assumed it made sense because I knew I was working a lot. I know my hours are at times not normal. The life of a shift worker is crazy. But I thought that I just needed more sleep. Then a couple of months went by and I realized that I was still tired no matter what. Even after a long night of rest I still found it hard to believe that there was something wrong with me. But after countless nights struggling to sleep and still feeling restless I decided to see my doctor. He told me that he did not believe I had sleep apnea. I was not overweight and I am too young to have it. Either way I felt something was wrong. So I asked to see a sleep specialist. After a couple of appointments and some sleep study tests he diagnosed me with Idiopathic Hypersomnia. A neurological disorder where a certain chemical in your brain is produced too much and causes you to always feel tired. It causes excessive daytime sleepiness. It’s similar to narcolepsy. Some studies say it effects 5% of the population. I know, when I first heard him say it I thought it was some made up bullshit too. He told me to go home and research it. He also prescribed me with medication to take to help treat the disorder though there is no known cure for it. When I did some research about it I was not too sure of it. But when I saw a video on YouTube of people describing their lives and personalities it finally hit home. I knew exactly what they were feeling. I could relate to their stories as well. I never knew that I had a disorder. I honestly believe I can never be hurt physically or have some type of disease or disorder. I think a part of me still feels that way. To think that my whole life when I slept all the way through high school there was something wrong with me. Or all the times someone called me lazy, I had a legit medical excuse. Even being late to work is because I suffer from this disorder….. Honestly I feel that this disorder has effected me my whole life but not being aware of it I have found different ways to not let it control my life. Yes I was diagnosed with it in December 2014 but now I feel like sharing it. I think I have just came to terms with it. I recently had a doctors appointment this week and I saw a pamphlet and a flyer for the Hypersomnia Foundation. Reading about the upcoming conference in Georgia forced me to come to the realization of what I have. Now I am ready to open up and talk about it. Below is a link that provides some information about it. If one person reads this and they are help in any way by this then I did my part in this world.

Relationship Advice…..

  
The worst advice to ask for is any advice dealing with a relationship. You can not ask someone to give you advice on something that is so subjective. You’re requesting the person put themselves in your shoes and determine what they would do. That’s damn near impossible. Not only does everyone feel and react differently in relationships but also because decisions are made based upon all of the facts and information. Which is most likely not given because there is way too much to say. It might seem like a simple question when asked but it is a difficult task for the person answering. Truthfully when someone asks for advice they are really doing two possible things. They are either looking for confirmation on their decision or perspective. Or they are just venting some frustration and asking for someone to listen. No matter what there really is no point in asking. The best option is to talk to the other person in the relationship. Open up a healthy dialogue. One that consists of two way communication and active listening. 

Modern Day Slavery

  
When we were young we were told that in order to survive in this world we must have a job. We must wake up and go to work for a company or corporation so that we can attain money. Then that money is used to purchase food, goods, and housing. Now stop and think for a moment, does having a job directly put food on your table? Does it directly build you a home? Think of all the ancient cultures and think of the types of jobs they had. For the most part their jobs focused on farming, hunting, constructions, things of that nature. Now in society today we have jobs where people work at Best Buy. My point is why do we have these created jobs that do not directly provide or supply the basic needs in life. It’s because the work you do at your job fuels the profits and revenues of the worlds top 1% of earners. Those few 100 or more people who have and control the majority of the resources in this world. Our energy and efforts provides them their needs. A job should be something that contributes to the sustainability and the improvement of a community. And thus contributing to the greater society. How many jobs actually do that? How many jobs are utterly meaningless? From the workers’ view a lot doesn’t make sense but when you think in terms of profit you realize that you are just a slave in a very large and complex machine. You are the small cog that is apart of the machine. You are lubricated, inspected, and when you are no longer of use you are then replaced. The system survives only because we the common worker allows it to. They distract us with their politics. They entertain us with their movies and tv shows. They brainwash us into thinking that we need to have the lastest technology or clothing that is marked up over 300%. Simply because they want 10 billion instead of 1billion in net revenue. It’s all one big system to control us. Slavery has been in existence throughout human history. It has never ended. The only thing that has changed are the tactics. When you think of slavery you think of the physical aspect. Which I honestly believe is an easier thing to break. But the slavery we face today has been indoctrine into our lives since we were infants. The mental chains that have been placed on us is cunningy, cruel, and one day it will end. I leave you with a quote from The Matrix. A moment when Morpheus was speaking to Neo and trying to get him to see the truth….. “Free your mind.”

Question Everything

In today’s world being called a conspiracy theorist is almost a slander term.  A word used to describe a loner who sits at home and spends countless hours searching random things on the Internet.  Someone you picture as an overweight white male, living in a one bedroom apartment.  He works a dead end job that pays slightly above minimum wage and he has close to zero social life.  But why do we (the general public) image a conspiracy theorist as such.  Maybe to much mainstream media and popular tv programming has manipulated our minds into this image.  Maybe it’s a way to discredit anyone who defines themselves as one and to scare all potential theorist.  But we as free human beings who are capable of our own thoughts, how come we do not question things too.  Is it not normal to question why on a particular day you may pay $3.20 for gas then a week later you are paying $2.99?  How many times in your life have you wonder why we have certain laws and regulations?  I believe it is a completely natural thing to have questions and concerns about subjects that you feel are not right. We are taught in school to ask questions when we do not understand a lesson that is being taught.  But when we become adults we often hear that “Things are the way the are.”. Let’s be honest, when you watched the plane fly into the building then minutes later the building collapses onto itself, did you not think “How does a plane take down a huge ass skyscraper?”.  When we were told that they killed Bin Laden and they had proof with a video and a body.  Then also in the same speech we are told that we can not see the video and the body was thrown over board.  There’s no way in hell you did not wonder if they were just making up shit. The truth is that there are many “official” stories that do not make sense.  You don’t have to have a degree in Rocket Engineering to be able to notice the discrepancies in stories.  So the point is, if you have ever had any question about anything, does that make you a conspiracy theorist?  If so, does the profile of a typical conspiracy theorist fit you?  Do not let the term conspiracy theorist scare you.  There is no such thing.  There are only regular everyday people who have a few questions about what is going on in the world.
