    Mental Hospital Tycoon; A Total Insult to Mental Health Patients and Professionals Alike

    Who doesn't love a good tycoon style game? You get to manage a business that you'd otherwise never get to manage. You get to exert some control over something in the midst of chronic illnesses that constantly threaten your grasp of controlling the circumstances of your own life. It's an escape. Sometimes medical based tycoon style games like Project Hospital, for instance, are quite therapeutic as you help find diagnosis for patients and build a facility that you wish could be accessible to you somewhere. It puts you in a place of figuring out a diagnosis when your own is so complex that even the best doctors are still going "heck if I know!". It's sort of a break from your own illness firna moment and instead of the constant endless loops you face with your illness, you find yourself facing someone else's but there's a linear process to discovering the source of the problem. If life only worked that way all the time!

    But then comes the misuse of the format. Recently I was on the Play Store when I came across a game that says "build your own mental hospital". From the get go it sounded cringy to me. However, a game in which you create a mental health facility is not at all a bad idea. It would empower patients to create the types of environments we want to really see and possibly give insight to professionals about what may really be beneficial for us and helpful if it let us design treatments etc. But this is not that game. It depicts stereotypes and not just stereotypes, but the blatant mistreatment of those with mental illness and further stigmatizes them. The game features restraints holding people unwiingly down onto beds, lock ups, beatings, patients escaping and stealing trucks on a joyride, features patients reminiscent of a band of stereotypical mocks of absolutely inaccurate depictions of mental health conditions, treatments that not even some of the worst former institutions would utilize, and altogether is a dangerous perpetuation of a stigma that still results in needless loss of life for those suffering from mental health conditions because of stereotypes like this that make people afraid of seeking mental health treatment. This depiction of a mental hospital is downright irresponsible, insulting (both to patients and mental health professionals alike), and quite dangerous should a child be exposed to this and think this is the standard treatment of the mentally ill in our society or that people with mental health conditions are to be feared, treated as inferior, or abused and it's all just par for the course, fun and games, etc. Perhaps the most disturbing overtone is that the patients deserve what they have coming.

    What's your take?
    Is it just a harmless game poking fun at the most serious parts of life to take the edge off? Or is this a problematic, dangerous depiction that should be removed from the Google Play app store?

    I tend to think the later is my personal view.

    Is Anyone Having Trouble with Notifications? #TheMighty #TheMightyApp #App

    I've had notifications stop suddenly several times. I notify tech help for the app and it's usually fixed within a few days.

    My last notifications shown were three days ago. I contacted help a couple of days ago, so I'm sure it'll be fixed soon, but I was wondering if anyone else is having this problem?

    Spoon Tracker?

    Does anyone know of any good (hopefully free) apps to help track spoons? When I'm having a good day, I tend to overwork myself and leave myself depleted for the next days to come. I'm hoping to flatten the curve by allocating a certain number of spoons per task and only allowing myself to work up to a limit. So: stacking the dishwasher is 4 spoons, cook dinner is 10 spoons, go grocery shopping is 30 etc etc. I want to give myself 50-60 spoons per day, and when I reach my limit, just stop and read a book or something, even if I feel fine.
    I'm planning to print out an excel spreadsheet where I have all these tasks and more written down, and then I can just tick off when I do stuff. But, I'm terrible with maths and I worry that me having to think about the sheet all the time will be harder than it needs to be. A warning notification when I get down to 15 spoons or fewer would be helpful too!
