Tw: self harm, cutting, ignorance, Greg being greg…
Basically cutting yourself is one of the most fucking stupid things to do (…) and you could say “Oh my god, Onision is so insensitive, why would he say that”. It’s just fucking dumb. It makes no sense whatsoever. (…) You know, you were given a gift, respect that gift, don’t cut it up. You know the gift of life.
- Greg’s Speaks video “She cuts herself”
I’m pretty sure you’ve never actually researched cutting (or any type of self harm) because if you did, you would know it actually does make a lot of sense. While no person working within the psychiatric field would recommend or condone it, no person working within the psychiatric field would call it dumb, because they know the science behind it.
(Since English isn’t my first language and I don’t often talk about subjects like this in English I might mess up here and there, in that case I apologize). When talking about self harm it often eventually comes down to endorphins (endogenous opioids). Psychoactive chemicals that have a similar effect as that of morphine are called opioids. Oipoids have, since way back in history, been used to treat pain. So endorphins work as the body’s own painkillers. When we get hurt our bodies will release endorphins which relieve pain and stress and prevents us from going into shock. This also happens for athletes when they push themselves to the limit and suddenly reaches a certain “high” and can keep pushing on. That is the body releasing endorphins to decrease the pain. The body doesn’t care if the pain is caused by ourselves or an external source, the bodily functions are the same.
Studies have shown that people with broderline personality disorder have lower levels of endogenous opioids. Many, but not all, people with BPD have or do self harm (which as stated above releases endorphins).
The neurotransmitter dopamine has also been linked to self harm.One of the roles of dopamine lies in the reward-motivated behavior (a number of drugs such as cocaine, does increase the dopamine level in the brain). Dopamine also plays a significant role in when we feel aroused or sexually gratified. There are many psychiatric medicines, such as Seroquel (Quetiapine), that affect certain neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin. As a dopamine antagonist it can treat psychosis. High levels of dopamine can cause an elevated state of mind.
The neurotransmitter serotonin was discovered in the 40s I believe and it is also linked to self harm (and depression). It has an inhibitory effect on many bodily functions, such as apatite, pain, mood etc. Many people suffering from depression have decreased levels of serotonin and takes medication to correct it (such as sertraline). Higher levels of serotonin cause a more happy state of mind.
Self harm is a behavior that is difficult to stop once it starts. In many ways it has the same physical effects on the body as certain drugs do (as stated above). And we all know drugs can lead to addiction, and the same goes for self harm.
You have a very simplistic mind if you think self harm essentially just is a person picking up a razor blade and cutting themselves because they’re bored. Once again you make yourself look stupid. Why don’t you just read about what you’re talking about? Why? You search for things online in all of your videos, but just for stupid reasons. I don’t get it.
Lastly, just because life was a gift doesn’t mean it’s perfect or that we have to appreciate it. No one chose the life they were given and to tell people to appreciate life just because they live makes no sense. For a person who is in an abusive relationship, who suffers from cancer, who is bullied everyday for being gay or who suffers from schizophrenia appreciating the life they are forced to live simply doesn’t work. Why should they appreciate a life being abused or chronically ill?
We shouldn’t tell people to “suck it up! appreciate life! Don’t be so dumb!” because that is irrational and by all means dumb. We should do our best to help the people around us to get out of or get through difficult situations, to be with them through illness, to stand up for them when they’re being bullied and to visit them in the hospital when they are sick. To help create something in life that can be appreciated and hopefully in the long run support them towards a more happy life.
I’m so sick and tired of you Greg. And I feel sorry for you for being so dumb.
