I'm grateful for my parents because they challenge me. They don't always tell me what I want to hear. My father, in particular, knows when to push me and when to comfort.   He didn't always. For a long time, I wouldn't characterize either of my parents as at all effective in facilitating my treatment.… Continue reading I’m grateful for my parents, and they’re grateful for me

I'm taking this amazing upper level Philosophy course titled The Ethics of Diversity. In this class, we are each allowed to spearhead our own day of discussion about a particular sector of diversity. I immediately chose neuro-diversity. My partner for the day is discussing The Minority Body and its corresponding implications for physical disability. My half of the… Continue reading My Philosophy Presentation on Mental Illness as Disability

If you know me, you know that I rarely watch television or movies. I know, they feel like the kind of thing Olivia should be interested in, especially considering how much free time I’ve had, but during my concussion era I couldn’t watch screens in that way and otherwise, I just feel antsy and anxious… Continue reading Mindhunter, Sociopathy and Psychopathy

TRIGGER WARNING: Physical/psychological abuse, rape, eating disorders, general mental illness.   This is going to be a long one, so buckle in. I get a surprising amount of questions from friends and strangers alike that are very far off from the timeline of my life.

If you don't know who Shane Dawson is, he's a very famous Youtuber whose vast amount of subscribers check in on him to see long, expose style mini-documentaries on relevant internet topics. Most recently, he did a video titled "The Return of Eugenia Cooney." It's really excellent and I recommend you watch it, it'll give… Continue reading VIDEO: Re: Shane Dawson and Eugenia Cooney

Today, I filmed a video. It was an hour long. It detailed the entire timeline of what my emotionally abusive, sociopathic ex did, from the moment I first saw him and remarked on his visual similarity to Harry Potter to the last time we communicated. I got it all out there. My intent was not… Continue reading The Power of Not Posting

I’ve dated more people than can be counted on one hand, approaching two hands. I have been through many breakups, makeups, rebounds and long lost reunions, likely much more-so than folks my age usually have. This is generally attributed to my constant craving for emotional connection, and the number of breakups attributed to bad luck.… Continue reading Breakups: Sociopathy versus Sadness

I’m going to college soon. I’m so happy. I actually got into the college that my ex is going to, and can’t go for financial reasons. A real blessing in disguise. In any case, my chapter of discussing him on this blog is coming to an end. This’ll be the last one, unless something new… Continue reading Gas lighting in Pictures: My Last

I’ve gotten a few questions (and concerns) recently about how and why I choose my article topics. No one has asked this specifically, but in addition to exploring how and why, I want to talk about why I talk so much about past relationships and gaslighting. First of all, I sometimes choose what I write… Continue reading Why I write on the topics I choose
