This was shocking to me because of how bad the conditions are with people with disabilities. According to the USAToday it states that people with mental disabilities are not even getting the simplest care and is causing some to even die stating, "We have a wasteland of people who have died and been disabled because of inadequate care." this surprised me because it was more than just a social issue it was an issue that was taking the lives of people for no reason, just because they didn 't feel they were important compared to the people who were suffering from cancer when the results of both diseases can be fatal. That is why we need to start taking action. To start taking action people could do multiple things starting even before the child is born.
Overcoming adversity and obstacles can be some of the greatest struggles in life. Any type of challenge or draw back that someone faces will have some type of effect on their life. If it is something minor like being embarrassed or a major issue like a death, it will leave some sort of impact on the person, but their job is to overcome that barrier. Some ways to defeat obstacles are to never give up, understand failure, accept rejection, and believe in oneself. One key aspect for people who are trying to rise above adversity is to never give up.

Previously, the DSM-IV had reported that hoarding was comorbid with OCD, however, the DSM-V states that it is independent from negative, intrusive thoughts if one does not maintain an item. Hoarding disorder is also comorbid with medical conditions such as fibromyalgia, diabetes and obesity (Kress et al. 2014). It is inferred that compulsive hoarding is a result of significant trauma in a person’s life. Such trauma can include the death of a loved one, major decline in health and significant change in a person’s daily life.
Let’s just say that you happen to suffer a death in the immediate family, now you can approach it many different ways. There will be that period of grief and sorrow, but you cannot be dwelling in those unhappy feelings forever; That will result in you being unhappy and mentally weakened. In times like this, these adverse circumstances can make you take a different outlook on life
There are many different emotions, actions, and expressions associated with grieving, which helps the person come to terms with their loss. Not everyone has the same reaction to grief because every loss is different (American Cancer Society, 2014). The personal experience of dying or losing a loved one can be very difficult, especially if the death is unexpected compared to a person who has been ill for a long time (Kazanowski, 2014). Grieving includes the whole emotional process of coping with a loss and it can last a long time for some people. Grieving allows people to let the person close to them go so they can keep living in a healthy way (American Cancer Society, 2014).
There are major milestones that all people endure, such as the birth of a child, starting a career, or the death of a loved one. All of these milestones, no matter how insignificant they may seem to some, undoubtedly have a profound effect on the recipient. Truthfully, no one can successfully progress through life without enduring hardships or unfortunate circumstances. The success of the people who undergo serious life changes is dependent upon how well they choose to handle their happenings. “Choices”, written by Nikki Giovanni, stresses the importance of attempting to deal with one’s circumstances in a positive way, especially the circumstances that may be viewed as unfair or unfortunate.
As humans, we often make our own conflicts and struggles. Because of this, there will always be a battle between us, both external and internal. Our response to conflict allows us to come back and survive these battles, but one response always seems to work in one way or another. From a small diary of a young girl, a collection of encouraging letters, and an empowering speech that echoed around the globe, the best response to conflict is a positive attitude that can get people through hard times and influence you to work harder to help. Anne Frank is an interesting character.
Assisted suicide is when a person who is terminally ill, (meaning a person with a disease that cannot be cured or treated and will most likely result in death), has the “incontestable right to humankind’s ultimate civil and personal liberty”. People have the right to die in a manner and at a time of their own choosing; medicine has brought many benefits to humanity, and it cannot entirely solve the pain and distress of the dying process when ill. People who live with great pain everyday of their lives are in likely need of doctor’s assistance for most of their lives, and this is where assisted suicide comes into play. Assisted suicide is when a doctor “prescribes voluntary termination of one's own life by administration of a lethal substance with the direct or indirect assistance of a physician”;
Having a right to die is what causes assisted suicide so controversial. According to Karaim in 2013 “Decisions about sustaining life, allowing it to end or even hastening death are among the most difficult choices terminally ill patients and their families can face” (para 1). Patients going through this have a bountiful number of things going
Growing up with this disease has been the most challenging obstacle in my life. It has taught me to be proud of who I am and as ironic as this may sound, it has made me a stronger person. It has also taught me that being strong has so many variables. It doesn 't just mean getting through the rough times, it means accepting yourself and appreciating every great moment given to you. Going through this journey has also taught me that everyone has their own insecurities and that you never know what a person may be going through.
Its origins have been difficult to understand, which leads to difficulties in diagnosis and treatment. However, it’s very clear that hoarding syndrome can take over the lives of those affected by it. In severe cases, hoarders not only lose their loved ones but their lives as well. Which makes it that more important to focus more studies towards hoarding. For now the best treatment for hoarding is either a certain antidepressant or cognitive-behavioral therapy.
