The Search for a Deeper Understanding of Suicidality

quote [ ?Suicide,? goes the popular expression, ?is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.? [...] This tends to be the prevailing narrative around suicide and suicidality? [...] The problem with this, though, is the obvious reality that some problems really are permanent [...] We may, with the right therapy or psychopharmacological help, change our perspective of such problems so that they don?t cause us so much ongoing distress. But not all problems fade with time; some actually do get worse. It should not be irrational to acknowledge this existential fact, and yet it remains stubbornly difficult to talk about. ]

Butter-Scented Chemical Linked to "Popcorn Lung" Discovered in Vape Juices

quote [ In 2007, health officials in California revealed that numerous workers in local flavoring factories suffered from a rare, life-threatening lung condition called bronchiolitis obliterans, later nicknamed ?popcorn lung.? The illness, which scars the air sacs of the lungs and makes breathing difficult, stemmed from exposure to diacetyl, a yellow chemical used to give microwave popcorn its buttery flavor. Now, that chemical is at the center of a new study revealing that it?s harmful in vape liquids as well. ]

Sick Woman Theory

quote [ So, as I lay there, unable to march, hold up a sign, shout a slogan that would be heard, or be visible in any traditional capacity as a political being, the central question of Sick Woman Theory formed: How do you throw a brick through the window of a bank if you can?t get out of bed? ]
