Are you needing the adrenalin rush?

We’ve all heard of someone being described as a drama queen – man or women. And we may even fall into that category ourselves. You know, the times when we turn something unimportant into a major issue, blowing things way out of proportion. The behaviour can be overt, with shouting or holding the focus of people’s attention by talking on and on about an issue. Sometimes it can be more covert with things like loud sighs and excessive shuffling of papers. When in this state, we experience a chemical high from the adrenalin that is rushing around our bodies. This can become addictive. It can be a real problem to the drama queens as they need to create the drama in response to the addictive need for the adrenaline rush.

As with any addiction, this is a serious problem as the body is craving the chemicals and cannot function without the fix, in just the same way as a smoker needs that puff.

Some people create the drama wherever an opportunity arises, others seem to only create the drama with certain people or certain situations.

To find out more, here is a humorous and helpful article.

You don’t have to be lonely – there is a cure

It is the month of love, and as relationships are brought to the fore, it can become apparent just how lonely you feel.
Loneliness reportedly affects around 1 in 10 South Africans, both young and old. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, it is affecting increasingly more, and in some ways has become an epidemic on its own.

Is sex taking over your life?

Is sex taking over your life?

Although sex is a powerful bond in a healthy relationship, it has also sadly often become destructive. What is it about sex that can bring out such extremes as addition or abuse?  Being mindful of the impact that sex can have on both body and mind is an important foundation for nurturing your own sexuality.
