Crypto is cool and fun but MAKE SURE you are Taking care of your Mental Health.


This post is a reminder to take care of your mental physical health, social life and career.

I‘m a Doctor and I studied, treated and experienced Addiction. (Weed, but overcame it, I can’t imagine those addicted to Coke or Heroin how do they manage..)

Medical Definition: Addiction: A biopsychosocial disorder characterized by compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli despite adverse consequences

Stage1: Experimentation. Very few people set out to become addicted.

Stage2: Regular Use & Abuse.

Stage3: Dependency & Tolerance.

Stage4: Addiction.

Most of us started with minimal amounts when we started until we reached today snd we look at our portfolios and check the graphs, see a tweet, check reddit, go back to the charts, call our crypto-buddy discuss news, farm .. etc

This all is huge and time consuming !

1) How do you define an alcoholic from a a person who enjoys drinking alcohol normally?

2) What’s the difference between a man who smokes weed for fun or someone who fails their exams because of being stoned the whole time?

3) How do we diagnose a patient with depression vs. normal mood fluctuation in an individual?

4) How do you differentiate between a person with an eating disorder or a person who cares about what they eat and how they look?

The answer to all questions (1-4) is one :

If the subject’s ordinary daily routines, social relations and career are disrupted then this is called a Disorder

I love this sub and made out many friends some of them are 30 years older ! But at the end, real life lies beyond your screen.

If the Base of your Dominant Hand and Thumb on the phone hurts, it means you are overusing your phone.

Look away from your phone every now and then, Bears and Bulls will come your way either you look or not. Buy your coins. Close your apps.

Go out breathe some fresh air, sit by the river, See your parents while they’re still alive, no amount of money in the world will compensate their existence in your life… See your friends, have a drink.

Make sure your career isn’t damaged but your interest in Crypto, make sure you care about the people who care about you. I haven’t seen them in while, and I can’t wait to be able to see them again it hurts sometimes..

Eat Healthy, Work out, Sleep enough hours.

Healthy Body = Healthy Mind

Healthy Mind = Healthy Body

I hope everyone here is taking good care of themselves while DCAing & HODLing !

P.S. Don’t take too much Hopium, there’s no antidote but I’m working on one.
