The Victorian era would've been so exciting. They had gas and oil lamps, and for the first time they could see inside the home after dark. They began caring about what was on their walls. Wallpaper was all the rage. Even better, Green Wallpaper. If you were keeping up with fashion, you had a green room, with green wallpaper. The shade of green to have was called Scheele’s Green. It was the most vibrant and it was EVERYWHERE. It's estimated that within British homes contained 100 square miles of this green wallpaper.
The problem? This color green was made from copper arsenite.
Arsenic. Extremely poisonous.
Many of these deaths were children who would lick the wallpaper, or spent a lot of time touching the walls. As is this wasn't bad enough, the arsenic was actually in the air. Fumes, especially on a hot day, would fill victorian homes, and death would follow.
Add to this lead paint on children's toys, deadly baby bottles which mothers were told not to bother washing, too-tight corsets, and exploding gas stoves, the Victorian era was a dangerous time to be alive.
Tonight is a sad night. My brother passed away, suddenly. He was a great uncle to my son. He was a Cliff Claven. He was someone that I honestly didn't see myself living without. Despite our 'differences' we defended each other to any outsiders. In case I didn't say it enough, I love you, Sam. Thanks for being my big brother. #eaglesfanforlife#unclesam#bestuncle#bigbrother#silentkiller

Silent Killer by #beverlybarton
Dalam rentang waktu kurang dari tiga tahun, tiga orang rohaniwan tewas terbakar di kota kecil Dunmore, Alabama. Tanpa saksi dan bukti-bukti kuat yang mengaitkan ketiga pembunuhan kepada orang tertentu, polisi mengalami kesulitan menemukan pelaku yang kemudian dijuluki Pembunuh Api dan Belerang. Korban pertama, Mark Cantrell, tewas di hadapan istrinya, Catherine, yang kemudian menderita gangguan mental setelah menyaksikan hal itu. Cathy yang baru keluar dari tempat rehabilitasi berusaha memulai kembali kehidupannya. Sayangnya, semua tidak berjalan lancar sesuai rencana, terutama dengan kedatangan pria yang menjadi cinta pertamanya. Jack Perdue, seorang veteran yang terluka dalam perang, kembali ke Alabama sebagai deputi sheriff yang baru. Ia terkejut ketika mendapati bahwa salah satu korban adalah suami Cathy, wanita yang pernah dicintainya. Meskipun Jack awalnya enggan berhubungan lagi dengan Cathy, tapi ia tak bisa menyangkal bahwa dirinya tidak pernah bisa melupakan wanita itu. Dan ketika terjadi pembunuhan berikutnya, Jack tahu bahwa ia sedang menghadapi seorang pembunuh berantai dan harus segera menangkap si pelaku sebelum Cathy dan putranya menjadi korban...
I was tackling this touchy subject of depression in yesterday mornings writing... Then I hear about another dude who decides there is no other way out -A LOT
Of talent is lost to this silent killer - Dudes, talk about it!
-------- This is a chapter I could have quite easily missed, it would not have been obvious if it wasn’t there and I would have barely noticed either. That is part of the issue, we don’t like to talk about it, myself included (clearly I have got better). Men especially sweep this under the carpet as “real” men have a strong mindset and depression is for the weak right?
It hit me pretty hard. I have a history with it and to gloss over this very real pitfall, that given the wrong circumstances can happen to anyone of us, would have been a massive dis-service to you. On top of that I would not have been being completely honest with you, living aligned, honest and open with your true self is one of the few fixed/compulsory components to “Awaken Your Alpha”. On the flip side, from experience, not living this way is also a way to open the door to the savage potential of depression... -------- #depressionisreal#silentkiller#awarenessiskey#dontsuffernsilence#ithappens#dontgetittwisted#backyourself#itllgetbetter#mentalhealthawareness
When people say- "why would you commit suicide? It's selfish..." Obviously they don't know what it's like to feel like nobody cares, like nobody would miss you when you're gone, like your very existence could improve every one else's by not being here anymore. You don't know what it's like to be trapped in a vicious cycle where every night the lonely mess brings back the pain, like what if someone was actually here with me to help me. Only to be reminded that nobody is there and that nobody is going to move a finger to try and save you. You wouldn't understand what it's like to be on the other side of the life spectrum. The side where you are alone with your thoughts/brain. The most powerful weapon that can be used against someone is their own mind reminding them every night that tomorrow is going be exactly the same; alone. But nobody seems to care. It's just that some are more or less afraid of death and that's why not everyone has committed suicide. Chester, I feel you man. Rest in Paradise brother.
Mental Health... It's great that we want to remove the stigma, it's great to raise awareness, but sometimes for sufferers it's just too hard to talk about.. We feel we have to be OK, we have to be strong, we have to get on with things.. Mental illness is crippling, it affects so many in so many different ways. Never shut someone out just because you don't understand 💚 Mental illness is not a weakness... #mentalawareness#mentalhealth#mentalillness#ruok#itsoktonotbeok#silentkiller
I'm so saddened to read the news this morning.
Undeniable that #mentalillness is a #silentkiller . A stark reminder today to prioritise your own wellness and #beaware .
Do something today - if you know someone going through their own struggle, check in, drop them a message. The small things are #everything . 🙏
shocked & heartbroken by the news today surrounding the lead singer of Linkin Park, Chester Bennington
their music not only got me through high school, but was so therapeutic for me especially when I'd go through really tough emotional times (even today)
I'd run laps around my local park back then and play "Bleed it Out", "In the End" or "Numb" on repeat until I couldn't feel the pain anymore
It's been a long time since the death of a celebrity moved me. None of us may know what Cheater was really going through, but I did read that he had thoughts of committing suicide in the past & the suicidal passing of his musician friend Chris Cornell this year also affected him deeply.
I've had my share of serious moments with depression and anxiety & some don't understand that "just because you don't see it.. doesn't mean it isn't there"
It is so stressful, overwhelming, & exhausting to battle thoughts that are constantly circulating in your mind. It's even harder when people say it's all mental and what you feel will eventually go away
Anxiety and Depression is very real & difficult to just shut off. It sometimes makes it so hard to breathe, get out of bed and start the day. I hope anyone who is going through a tough time vents to someone who is willing to listen
Sometimes even talking to someone who knows nothing about you is very therapeutic (perhaps that's why I love engaging with strangers when I'm in a different country.. because it's not something I would normally do back home)
please know Her Next Stop isn't just a decent Instagram with pretty pictures..
If you have ever experienced anxiety, depression, or battled with suicidal thoughts, please know I can be that "someone" if you need to somebody to vent to
as a fellow fan, my thoughts and prayers go out to Chester's family during this tough time
