The Side Effects of Being Human - ASMR Supportive Friend / Mental Health vlog
Video Preferences (ASMR FM :: Ephemeral Rift :: The Side Effects of Being Human - ASMR Supportive Friend / Mental Health vlog)
I act as a supportive friend while rowing my boat down a winding stream of consciousness that contains my unadulterated thoughts, views, feelings, advice, knowledge and experiences on a wide variety of mental health topics primarily suggested by viewers that they themselves or someone they know are dealing with. I also swear. A lot. Sorry, but I get very emotional and defensive whenever I talk about how people are mistreated in this world. What can I say, I wear my heart proudly on my throat.
Please remember - if you are having suicidal thoughts, dealing with severe depression, self-harm, etc., please call a national or local hot-line, emergency office, etc.
I call this "The Side Effects of Being Human" after compiling the list of topics provided by viewers and seeing how it looks like the side effects listed on a prescription drug label. Says a lot about our species.
Much love, peace and respect to you and yours always.
