Voice from the Vaults-2 by SinistrosePhosphate

Greetings, my fellow inmates: 

Hallowe'en is coming up soon. If you ask me, I still like to think it is the most wonderful time of the year. In my little corner I have been thinking about reviving old traditions and implementing new ones in this community that we call a home (since leaving the Asylum for good seemed to be something of a luxury, I suppose it was fair to call it a home.) Unfortunately, yours truly is alone in the darkness and found himself presently indisposed. 

But all is not lost, no. 

Our affiliates are running Hallowe'en-themed contests at the moment. And I would like to direct your attention to them: 
:iconda-morgue: is running a "Bad Moon Rising" contest: 

And :iconthe-lunatic-asylum: is running a doll-themed contest: 

I highly recommend you to take a look at them, and join them if you wish. Both of them seem quite interesting. 

If you have ideas on how to make this little community a better place, please let me know. If you think you can led this old, poor soul a hand, please let me know as well. It'll be much appreciated.

:iconscarsbybullying: is holding a Write 50 Reason's Why You Love Yourself Challenge
Deadline: ??
More info:
* Quote:
"I challenge you to write 50 reasons why you love yourself. Number the entries and start them all with, "I love myself because..." The reasons can be about anything, but you should think about 50 reasons you love yourself after being bullied. Sometimes after such experiences, it's hard to think of why you love yourself, and that's why this challenge was created. It'll boost your self-esteem and make you realize what a beautiful person you really are."

Psychosis (from the Greek ψυχή "psyche", for mind/soul, and -ωσις "-osis", for abnormal condition) means abnormal condition of the mind, and is a generic psychiatric term for a mental state often described as involving a "loss of contact with reality". People suffering from psychosis are described as psychotic. Psychosis is given to the more severe forms of psychiatric disorder, during which hallucinations and delusions and impaired insight may occur. [1]. Some professionals say that the term psychosis is not sufficient as some illnesses grouped under the term "psychosis" have nothing in common (Gelder, Mayou & Geddes 2005)

Sending this message in a bottle to every dark soul who survived to Eclipse and this madness named 2020.
At The-Lunatic-Asylum the show is going on and we have the Halloween contest up. The theme is Cabin Fever. 
We are still collecting prize donors so if you cannot participate, which is totally fine (the theme may be a bit triggering) 
please consider to spread the word about it. The more weirdos we are, the better.
The Quicksands of Loneliness: Cabin Fever,Greetings, lovely patients and casual visitors stopping by the Asylum.It’s that time of the year again, Halloween is upon us and this year despite a lot of incovenients -like our man of letter counselor Dr Syn gone missing during a dangerous mission, or an enraging change in the lands of deviantART which makes gathering funds harder and in general anything more frustrating- we are holding a contest and I hope you’ll find time and inspiration to join us.Now without further ado, let me illustrate the contest:ThemeIf you’ll browse through DSM-5, the very thick Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, not only you’ll experience the alarming suspect to have many of these disorders, but you won’t see anything named “Cabin fever”. It is not an official diagnosis since it’s not a defined psychological disorder. Nonetheless, it is generally acknowledged by mental health professionals as a very real problem.The expression has been around for well over 100 years. Originally, it described the irritable feelings of people who lived way out in the country and who were stuck in their “cabins” due to winter cold and snow, without the ability to get roads plowed. Without phones, or mail, country people in those days often lived in isolation for weeks, even months at a time. Their only social interactions were with the people they lived with. Over time, people got restless, bored and irritable. They felt sick with loneliness, no wonder it was called a “fever”!But country people are not alone on this lonely boat.Researchers going to polar expeditions also generally undergo psychological changes resulting from exposure to long periods of isolation and confinement, and the extreme physical environment. Aviators sometimes suffer hallucinations during long, monotonous flights. Moreover we don’t have to look to such extreme situations to see what damage isolation can do. All we need is to walk past the daunting gates of a prison.The experiences of prisoners held in solitary confinement—the despair, the disorientation, the hallucinations—are well documented. During the ’50s Donald O. Hebb, a professor of psychology at Montreal’s McGill University, set out to study how sensory isolation affects human cognition. The results were dramatic. Depriving a man of every sensory input, he soon discovered, will break him in a matter of days. A series of cognitive tests showed that the volunteers’ mental faculties were temporarily impaired. While in isolation, for instance, the subjects were played tapes arguing that supernatural phenomena, including ghosts and poltergeists, were real; when interviewed later, they proved amenable to such beliefs. They performed poorly on grade-school tasks involving simple arithmetic, word associations, and pattern recognition. They also experienced extreme restlessness, childish emotional responses, and vivid hallucinations, visual, acoustic or even tactile (like reaching out to touch a doorknob and feeling an electric shock).Indeed, “Cabin fever” is a series of emotions or symptoms people experience when they’re confined for extended periods of time. As said above this may be due to a variety of circumstances, such as a natural disaster, lack of transportation, or even willingly social distancing for pandemics like Covid-19, basically anytime you feel isolated or disconnected from the outside world.The symptoms can go far beyond feeling bored or “stuck” at home. They’re rooted in an intense feeling of isolation and may include: restlessness decreased motivation irritability hopelessness difficulty concentrating irregular sleep patterns, including sleepiness or sleeplessness difficulty waking up lethargy distrust of people around you lack of patience persistent sadness or depressionRecognizing the signs and finding ways to cope with these feelings may help make the isolation easier to deal with. Coping techniques can vary, from spending time outdoors when possible, exercising, to following a structured routine, meditating, or like for this contest, expressing your creative side.RulesHere are the general rules to abide by: I.

Psychic, Forensic psychiatrist and Medical director C. Syn, D. Div., guest consultant (if he comes back in time, fingers crossed)EntriesCannot wait to see what your twisted mind will come out with, don't be shy and start creating!Also,Some words about the current situation...Either you join this contest or just enjoy as as part of the audience, this year more than ever we need to stay united and get the best of a bad job. Just because we are living in this big and scary place (which could be an Asylum in the dark land of deviantART, or the world experiencing a global pandemic) doesn’t mean we cannot have a good time.Some of our patients know well how to tread carefully in the Quicksands of Loneliness, some may experience these symptoms for the first time and feel very helpless, overwhelmed and scared (and rightfully so)… while some know this treacherous land way too well and fear to not be able to escape it unscathed this time.I’m just a humble human being and I don’t have all the answers, but what I can do is to do my best and that’s what the staff and I expect from all of you as well. You can slipper and fall, but don't sink without asking help. You are not alone in this.If we stay calm and united without being selfish or reckless we’ll make it.It will be alrightWith love,,“Loneliness will sit over our roofs with brooding wings." Bram Stoker
Thank you
