September 2019

Today is a sad day, but also a happy one. We're moving to a new domain with a new name will be The Oracle Media. This means we don't sound like a bloody boy band anymore. It also means that we can bring you more personal content than before.

Our new logo is below:
We'll still bring you the content you know, just under a different name with a different logo, at a different address.



Voices, the word that people shy away from telling you because they fear your reaction. Voices are hard to deal with, whether they be internal or external, or whispering or across the room. Some people love them, but most find them scary. Whether you think they’re the devil or believe, they can see the future, they’re not an experience most people get. 

My friend hears them all the time, but I luckily only hear them when I’m ill. Mine are both cross the room and whispering. They usually lead to delusions. So what advice can I give you? Well, that depends. Are the voices brief, or are they prolonged? If they are fleeting, just take a deep breath, kindly ask the person you're with to stop speaking. I know it can cause distress but say to yourself, these voices are not real, I know they’re not real. If they still continue, go to the bathroom and drink a glass of water. Focus on the water, ask yourself questions about the water. For example, feel the cold (or warm) water run down your throat and ask yourself questions like, whether the water that you are drinking was drunk by one of your favourite celebrities or your favourite historical figure. Remember, there is only so much water in the world.



If the voices are more consistent, have a bath or a shower if the voices are still there, and you can hear them muffled from under the water then they are real and someone talking about you or to you. If you can again listen to them clearly as day and there is no change, they’re in your head and not real. These are hard to deal with because they know everything about you and can feed off that. The best way to deal with these is to tap on the chair, focus on your taps. Hear the echo they make, feel the echo. Close your eyes and focus on them. Count them if you have to.

The best advice I can give you is don't get too caught up in the voices. Just let them come and go. Eventually, you will find your own coupling techniques. I found, and most have my friends have found that the best one is the five senses. Counting five things you feel, taste, hear and see five times. That's the one I've tried to teach in this blog post. 




At first, I didn't like this podcast. It seemed too childish for any adult to listen to (and don’t forget adults will hear when their child are listening). Until chapter 5, this is the case. They set it at the beginning in the classroom, making fun of the teacher. It was very dull and bland. It was trying to be something it wasn’t, hilarious. After chapter 5, it all gets interesting, and you get taken through in time with voice actors. They tell you what sayings we have that the Romans also used and rank the Emperors in order of most foul behaviour. One such gent cut off the nose and ears of gladiators he met in the ring. It's not very long, about two hours it took me to listen to.

Homunculus: The Adventures of Langdon St Ives


Our life is so precious.
Yet every second of every day seems to be taken for granted?
The world is at a standstill when it comes to knowing what’s coming next.
Does no one know what is going on?
The PEOPLE of this planet are protesting against something our world leaders are refusing to take more action on.
Climate change
Trading of weapons
Poverty and the minimum wage
Homelessness
Do you get the picture?


The time we spend on earth is tiny compared to the size of our universe and still, we spend it wasting away because of some suits and ties acting as if they know what’s best for this planet?
Everything is economic growth.
Money, trading, wars and poverty for some.
Some get lucky enough to have a home and have the cash to afford a lavish lifestyle.
whereas some sleep in slums lost without mums or dads.
This isn’t some charity ad.
Though I wish I could help more.
This is a message.
Your life means so much.
The world you inherit means so much.

Just imagine the things we could achieve given a good leadership-driven toward peace and prosperity.
Instead of tyrants who lie to the monarch for the simple fact, he couldn’t handle his job.

Politics has always baffled me as I’m sure it confuses a lot of the younger generations. Our future is in “the mans” hands and, we’ve no say?
Look at human history.
We’ve powered in unity.
But unsurprisingly no one does anything?

Every other day I’m hearing about a stabbing in and around my area.
Are kids not able to go home to a warm bed, instead they lay dead?
And everyone continues on with life as if it means nothing?
A son isn’t coming home tonight.
His mother will probably lose sleep for weeks.
Someone’s in the hospital fighting for this very thing we should fight for, our lives.
We’ve always been told the future is what you make it.
What’ve we made it?
Besides for personal gain, people don’t seem to care a lot about anything else as long as they are happy right?

I guess the point I’d like to make is that everything you do is important even if it’s a mistake in life, it’s still important because it’s yours.
The person next to you is important too, they’ve felt the unbelievable pain just like you.
So say hello and just appreciate everything a little more
&
Fight climate change.

Love

Psychosis, commonly referred to as a loss of reality. And doctors around the world can't decide what qualifies you for having it. Do we refer to the DSM-5 or the ICD 11? Does borderline psychosis count? What about schizotypal? Is it derived from a personality disorder, or can it be standalone? Why are people so scared of this psychosis? So many questions go thoughts through my head, is that normal? Am I normal?
Psychosis affects 6% of the population. Some people that have it may never know that they have had it, and some will be moved into other care.
My diagnosis is schizophrenia, I was first diagnosed at 19. It was all strange to me; I knew of schizophrenia, I just didn’t believe I had it. I wasn’t like the other I insisted. My friends were all terrified for me, and they too didn’t know what was happening. A lot of them now have left my life, mainly because they did not understand what I was going through. I wouldn’t talk, I’d just sit there. Staring at nothing, all the time in my head. My head was going through everything, collecting all this information and putting it together… I was working it all out! I was going insane.
Psychiatrist (doctors who treat the mentally ill) keep a lot of what you experience during psychosis a secret. I will not break this in this post and won’t in any other. I’ve met too many people who have lied about having psychosis.
The thing is with psychosis, you won't just get it once. A full recovery from schizophrenia when I was 19, and I'll get it again when I reach my 40s. That goes for most, not all the people. 

I think what made me write this post is that 6% is so many people. Consider this, 8.136 million live in London. 6% of Londoners that will be psychotic in their lives is 488,160, and that's in London alone. All these 488,160 will experience something that brings them together but in such different ways. Not one of those 488,160 people will have the same delusions, see the same thing or hear the same voice. Like all human's what we take in and experience makes us an individual and psychosis is individual.

Lego has released yet another Lego game, this one being Lego: Jurassic World. This game is like all the other Lego games, has a sense of humour and general premiss is the same as what you already know.

Can't really remember why I put this game on the review list, it's actually hard to review something that is the same as its predecessor. The story has changed to match the movie and you can play as a dinosaur in this one, so there is that. The movie is 12, but the game is 7 and up - think about that for a second. There are things I love about Lego, the comedy and the style in which they embrace the fact that they are just Lego pieces. There is talking in this one which makes a big difference, but then again there has been talking in most of them up to this one. Just all very samey, samey really.



The Harry Potter ones were good, and I liked the Lego DC Super-Villains one. Anyway, the story is about a mutated other Dinosaur. They have crossed it with two others and now it's super evil; you get to see it eat someone... maybe that's why it's a 7+.



It's not targeted at me, it's targeted at young children and I'm sure if you have a child, they will love it. These games do have an adult gamer base, but it's very few.

If you would like to buy this game, the link is below.

I'm here to talk about the big M.
The one thing that everyone has in common yet divides us - Mental health! 

Along my journey of life, I’ve experienced lots of traumas and a lot of pain at the hands
of other
people who had similar tendencies to what I have nowadays. 
Being defensive over little things and getting angry when it feels as if someone is trying
to be above you.

My condition is called Borderline Personality Disorder also known as EUPD 
Emotionally unstable personality disorder 
Whichever one you prefer both are still very painful to handle.
My illness takes many forms.
Neglecting positive friendships, because do I really deserve them? 
Manipulating people into staying in my life even if they do not plan on leaving
because they were going to leave anyway right? 
Getting paranoid about everybody I see now this one is the hardest.
Dealing with EUPD is a daily struggle alongside the struggles of our times nowadays
I am very
shocked I am still around to be writing this. 
I guess there is one positive I can take from handling EUPD on a daily basis,
is knowing the
importance of life, being suicidal most of my teenage and adult life I’ve been
echoing away from
death forgetting this life is the only thing I have. 
Put aside all of those materialistic things your heartbeat should mean the most to you. 

We live in a society so fixated on money and power everything the younger generation
is seeing is “you need this” or “you need that” that makes fitting in such a challenge
for people who
struggle with their own identity especially when that person has a mental health difficulty. 

So many more teens need inpatient care in mental health hospitals all over
the UK and for what?
