12 Struggles Of Having An Outgoing Personality But An Anxious Mind

Outgoing people with anxious minds – or minds that overthink – tend to feel anxiety the most intensely, often because we don’t talk about it. And by “often” I mean never.

Our anxiety is a contrast to our big, bold personalities. Strangers would never guess it. We never know when to fight or flight, and our self-angst is maxed out. We are often the life of the party but can also be mind-numbingly introspective, questioning everything.

1. Our day normally goes something like this: Anxiety: Okay but what if – Me: Homie we went over this a thousand times and we totally resolved it. Anxiety: Yeah but I’ve looked at it from a new angle and there are like 15 more reasons why you should worry about it. Me: ……go on.

2. We’re kind of a conundrum because we love people and need to be surrounded by people to be happy, but
our over-thinking and our apprehension to immediately trust someone is, in fact, what makes us very selective about who we surround ourselves with.

3. That might mean we’ll have lots of friends or acquaintances but very few close friends who we share our world with. But when we do, they become our entire life.

4. We still find it easy to talk and connect with people – we can be charming creatures and when we do choose to grace a party with our presence, we are the life of it.

5. But then we wake up in the morning and of course, we are over-thinking everything – Ahhh what did I say to that one person thatrather die than act like an idiot in front of? Did I talk too much? And what did they mean by “I’ll see you soon?” What does “soon” even mean? Like soon soon? Or “soon”?

6. Although we are very bold and outgoing, sometimes even the smallest things can stress us out and override our nerves. Whether it’s picking up our dry cleaning, finishing a project for work or making a call to our doctor, just the thought of having to deal with it makes our minds race.

7.Dating is hard, we have to explain that we’re not insecure control freaks, we just think. A lot.

8. I mean you don’t have to call us back right away when you’re out, but just know that our mind is playing out a bunch of horrible scenarios in which you’ve cheated. Or died. That’s right, if we reach your voice mail, we can’t help but consider that you might not be alive.

9. Even the smallest gestures make us melt. We tend to be overwhelmed very easily, so anything you do to make our life easier is greatly appreciated. Picking us up for a date, playing with our hair when we’re watching a movie, calling to see how we’re feeling or making us a cup of tea comes with the highest of thanks. We will never take your gestures for granted.

10. We’re hardest on ourselves, we are always gripped by the feeling that there’s more that we should be, or could be, doing in our life.

11. We try to trick our brain by doing as many things as we can during the day so we can fall asleep at night – HAHA what were we thinking? This is our brain’s prime time to annoy us; it won’t miss this opportunity.

12. We ebb and flow between wanting to be surrounded by many people, revelling in the attention we receive, to being very selective and sort of wanting to isolate ourselves to recharge and be left alone with our thoughts. Needless to say, we’re enigmas wrapped in bacon.

BREAKING NEWS: Bernie Sanders Announced this about Marijuana

BREAKING NEWS: Bernie Sanders Announced this about Marijuana

BREAKING NEWS: Bernie Sanders Announced this about Marajuana

BREAKING NEWS: Bernie Sanders Announced this about MarijuanaPresidential hopeful Bernie Sanders announced his support Wednesday for removing marijuana from a list of the most dangerous drugs outlawed by the federal government — a move that would free states to legalize it without impediments from Washington.

The self-described democratic socialist senator from Vermont shared his proposal during a town hall meeting with college students that was broadcast on the Internet to more than 300 campuses across the country from George Mason University in Fairfax, Va.

“Too many Americans have seen their lives destroyed because they have criminal records as a result of marijuana use,” Sanders told the crowd, which erupted with applause. “That’s wrong. That has got to change.”

No other presidential candidate has called for marijuana to be completely removed from the schedule of controlled substances regulated by the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Long-shot Democratic hopeful Martin O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland, has said that he would put marijuana on Schedule 2, a less-strict designation. The party’s front-runner, Hillary Rodham Clinton, has repeatedly said she wants to see how legalization experiments in Colorado, Washington and other states play out before committing to any changes at the federal level.

Sanders’s plan would not automatically make marijuana legal nationwide, but states would be allowed to regulate the drug in the same way that state and local laws now govern sales of alcohol and tobacco. And people who use marijuana in states that legalize it would no longer be at risk of federal prosecution.

His plan would also allow marijuana businesses currently operating in states that have legalized it to use banking services and apply for tax deductions that are currently unavailable to them under federal law.

, the Justice Department essentially agreed to look the other way in states where marijuana is legal, provided that the marijuana industry in those states remained in compliance with state laws. But that memo is not legally binding, and a new administration or a new attorney general could easily reverse course.

Marijuana’s current classification is reserved for drugs with no medically accepted use and a “high potential for abuse.”

Many researchers who work in drug policy say that this designation is not appropriate. Last week, the Brookings Institution said that marijuana’s current scheduling status is “stifling medical research.” The American Medical Association has called for marijuana’s scheduling status to be “reviewed with the goal of facilitating the conduct of clinical research.”

Sanders has hinted at his position before, including during a broadcast last week on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on ABC, during which he said: “I am not unfavorably disposed to moving toward the legalization of marijuana.”

 “We have more people in jail today than any other country on Earth,” Sanders told Kimmel. “We have large numbers of lives that have been destroyed because of this war on drugs, and because people were caught smoking marijuana and so forth. I think we have got to end the war on drugs.”

In response to a question during the first debate for Democratic presidential candidates, Sanders said he would vote in favor of a local Nevada measure that would legalize recreational pot use.

“I would vote ‘yes’ because I am seeing in this country too many lives being destroyed for nonviolent offenses,” he said. “We have a criminal justice system that lets CEOs on Wall Street walk away, and yet we are imprisoning or giving jail sentences to young people who are smoking marijuana.”

In the first debate, Clinton said she supports the legalization of medical marijuana and alternatives to imprisoning people for nonviolent drug crimes. But she stopped short of endorsing recreational legalization, saying she wants “to find out a lot more than we know today” about the experiences of states like Colorado and Washington.

Sanders’s proposal is in line with the thinking of a growing number of Americans and a solid majority of Democrats.

According to a Gallup poll released earlier this month, national support for legalizing pot is at an all-time high, with 58 percent of those surveyed supporting such an outcome.

Still, the ability of Sanders or any Democratic president to move the needle on federal marijuana policy through a reclassification of the drug is likely to face stiff resistance in a Republican-controlled Congress.

Medical marijuana is now sold in nearly half of the country, and one red state — Alaska — has legalized it for recreational use. Veterans of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are clamoring for access to treat post-traumatic stress disorder. In three swing states — Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida — the loosening of pot laws fares better in polls than any presidential candidate.

But in July, conservative House Republicans killed a bipartisan proposal to create a sub-class for marijuana so that researchers could simply study the substance legally and offer fresh guidance on whether it should continue to be classified alongside drugs such as heroin and ecstasy.

OMG BREAKING NEWS MUST See the B.C. Drunk Driving Laws CHANGES

 

BC Supreme Court, DUI, Drunk Driving, BC Laws, Constitutional Law, Motor Vehicle Act, AA, NA, SMART Recovery, SMARTRecoveryBC.com, Case Law, Breaking News

VANCOUVER, BC – The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that current drunk driving laws in B.C. are constitutional and don’t violate basic rights.

The ruling stems from two cases where drivers were given roadside suspensions following either failed or refused breathalyzer samples.

In the first case, Lee Michael Wilson was pulled over in 2012 and the two breath samples he provided registered in the “warning” range. He was given a three-day driving suspension as a result.

Wilson argued that the breathalyzer samples alone weren’t enough to constitute the suspension and impounding of his vehicle. He said that he’d also need to be showing evidence of intoxication, such as slurred speech or erratic driving to justify the suspension. He also said the laws were “ambiguous” and violated the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

The B.C. Supreme Court initially ruled in his favour, but the B.C. Court of Appeals overturned that decision.

The other case involved several plaintiffs who either failed the roadside breathalyzer test or refused to take it entirely. Refusal to take a breathalyzer results in a 90 day driving suspension and a 30 day vehicle impoundment under the Automatic Roadside Prohibition scheme, which was created in 2010.

The plaintiffs argued it was unconstitutional to get a roadside suspension for blowing over 0.08, the legal limit.

One of the plaintiffs, Richard Goodwin, “failed to provide an adequate breath sample,” and was issued a 90 day driving suspension, according to court documents. The courts found his punishment didn’t violate his basic rights as he had argued.

Justice Minister Suzanne Anton said in a statement that the court ruling was the right choice and B.C.’s drinking and driving laws save lives.

“That is our plan – to continue to have one of the toughest drinking driving laws in the country and to continue to protect public safety by getting these drivers off our roads,” said Anton.

Anton said 260 lives have been saved since the roadside prohibition law was enacted in 2010.

All three focus groups declared Sanders the victor.

1. Frank Luntz Focus Group: “The participants agreed overwhelmingly that Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders was the big winner at the first Democratic debate.”
2. Fusion Focus Group: “Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders was the most popular candidate among a group of young registered Democrats responding to Tuesday’s Democratic presidential debate in Las Vegas. The panel voted 8 to 3 for Sanders against the runner-up Hillary Clinton, with one panellist saying it was a tie between the two.”
3. CNN Focus Group: “Majority of CNN Focus Group Think Sanders Won First Debate”

Time Warner Inc owns CNN.
Time Warner Inc is Hillary’s 7th biggest financial supporter.
CNN is posting all over that Hillary won the debate.
CNN’s own polls show that 81% of their viewers think Bernie won.
CNN will not even post the results of their own poll.

If this isn’t some Orwellian 1984 behavior, I don’t know what is. We need to show corporations that we’re not taking the manipulation any more. ‪

CNN, under direct supervision of its parent company TimeWarner, are turning into Fox News-style news by only providing a biased look at the current presidential election. Ignoring dozens of feedback polls that indicated Sen. Bernie Sanders won the first democratic debate by a landslide, CNN has done all it can to promote HRC and is losing the trust of the people.

Bernie Sanders is NOT Happy with Pharma Martin Shkreli

 

Pharma CEO Martin Shkreli failed to respond to Bernie Sanders about his drug hike — and Sanders is not happy

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Sanders pauses during a speech at a campaign event in Chicago

US Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) gave Turing Pharmaceuticals three weeks to respond to a letter requesting more information about its controversial recent price hike on the critical drug Daraprim.

Sanders and co-author Sen. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) are investigating sudden hikes in the costs of older medicines. In their letter to Turing, the pair requested that the company hand over information about the company and its revenues for the sale of the drugs as well as the identities of individuals in the company responsible for the recent price hike, which raised Daraprim’s sticker price from $13.50 to $750 a pill.

The 62-year-old drug is commonly used to treat patients with AIDS, cancer, and malaria.

Sanders and Cummings have been putting pressure on drug companies for a while, reaching out to them to explain drug price hikes and considering legislation to curb pharmaceutical drug prices in general.

The deadline for responding to their letter — Friday, October 9 — has come and gone, and Sanders and Cummings have yet to get a response from Turing. And as of last week, the price of the drug had not been reduced.

Sanders is not happy.

“On behalf of the American people, we are sickened by these actions,” Sanders said in a news release Friday. “Mr. Shkreli is holding hostage the patients who rely on this lifesaving medication, as well as the hospitals that administer it, by charging unconscionable prices for a drug on which he has a monopoly — just because he can.”

In the meantime, Turing has hired lobbyists, perhaps to fend off the requests of the letter. Shkreli, who set his Twitter account to private after announcing that he would lower the price, has now returned to public Twitter in full force, responding to critics and announcing company news.
