emo hair has sharp edges and shapes. It does not always have bangs, but it usually does have some chunky sections twisted or pulled in a direction that conflicts with the rest of the hair. Girls and guys have emo styles of hair, and they are pretty much the same. Girls might have longer hair than guys, but they usually do not have hair past their shoulders.

Anxiety can be seen with several other emotional disorders including the following:
Acute Stress Disorder
Anxiety Disorder Due to Medical Condition
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Substance-Induced Anxiety Disorder
There are many characteristics associated with anxiety. Frequently, people with anxiety experience tightness in their chest, a racing or pounding heart, and a pit in their stomach. Anxiety causes some people to get a headache, to sweat, and even make them have the urge to urinate.
Severe anxiety, which can be described as an episode of terror, is referred to as a panic attack. Panic attacks can be extremely frightening. People who experience panic attacks over a prolonged time period may become victims of agoraphobia, which is a psychiatric disorder that is closely associated with the panic disorder. Patients with Agoraphobia avoid certain places or situations such as airplanes, crowded theaters, a grocery store or anyplace from which escape might be difficult. It is said that Agoraphobia can be so severe that it has made certain individuals housebound.
Some people argue that there is a genetic basis for these anxiety disorders. Research shows that there is strong evidence for a genetic basis for anxiety. If a person has anxiety, more than ten percent of his or her relatives will also suffer form some form of anxiety if not the same form that they have.
It has been found that anxiety disorder affect males and females differently. Females are
known to be twice as likely to suffer from anxiety than males. On the other hand, an equal
number of males and females are both seen for the treatment of their anxiety.
The ages that the people have anxiety attacks vary but, anxiety problems commonly begin when people are in their twenty’s. This is something really great to know when you are only a year a way from being twenty. When will my anxiety start? Or has it already? There some known cases of anxiety at early ages but these are rare. Still again people of any age can suffer from anxiety and require the treatment for it.
I wondered to myself how common are anxiety disorders in our society today. Then I found out how common they really are. They end up being very common. At least three percent of the population in the untied states has had or will eventually be diagnose with some form of abnormal anxiety. Being a college student I am almost positive that I am in that three percent. How lucky am I?
Knowing now that I am almost at the right age to have anxiety who would diagnose a type of disorder like these? I found out that a mental health professional may diagnoses the anxiety disorder after taking a careful look at my personal history. It will be important to the therapist to learn the details of my life. It is also very important not to overlook a physical illness that might mimic or contribute to this psychological disorder since some medical illnesses can cause anxiety like symptoms. Take for instance, a person with an overactive thyroid, known as hyperthyroidism, may have symptoms similar to anxiety. This is something that the professional would pick up and diagnose you accordingly. If there would be a question whether the individual might have a physical problem, the mental health professional would recommend a complete physical examination by a medical doctor. People examined during an anxiety attack usually have rapid pulse, rapid breathing, dry mouth, and sweating palms. They might also complain of dizziness or numbness or tingling in their extremities. Laboratory tests are also a necessary part of the physical work up and check out.
Anxiety disorders can be treated in several ways. The first is being Psychotherapy. This is recommend for someone with a moderate to severe anxiety problem. Secondly, antianxiety medications can be used to reduce severe anxiety. Take for example when people sometimes start experiencing a panic attack they think that they are having a heart attack, and they begin to worry that they might die. Therefore, they go to a hospital emergency room to be evaluated. Once they are evaluated and diagnosed with anxiety, they are given reassurance that they are not going to die, and they may be treated with medications to lessen their anxious symptoms. The third way that a anxiety disorder can be treated is with the help of your family. If you have a friend, family member or a loved relative they can help you cope with your hard time and make you life a little easier just with them being there and them giving you encouragement.
What could happen if a person had a type of anxiety disorder? Well some forms of anxiety are sort lived. However, many people with anxiety battle the disorder for years.
The prognosis for the recovery from anxiety is variable. However, with treatment many people learn to live with or control their anxiety so that they can continue to be fully functioning.
I have learned through my own situations in life that anxiety can be very stressful. . Doing this paper how made me realize how really messed up I really am. I have many anxiety problems. I guess I can say though who doesn’t is the world today.
Not only have I learned a lot about anxiety but thorough out this semester in psychology I have learned different problems people face and what they do to help themselves get better. There are problems that I never knew existed.
With the help of God may I never have any more anxiety problems.

Emo (pronounced /ˈiːmoʊ/) is a style of rock music typically characterized by melodic musicianship and expressive, often confessional lyrics. It originated in the mid-1980s hardcore punk movement of Washington, D.C., where it was known as "emotional hardcore" or "emocore" and pioneered by bands such as Rites of Spring and Embrace. As the style was echoed by contemporary American punk bands, its sound and meaning shifted and changed, blending with pop punk and indie rock and encapsulated in the early 1990s by groups such as Jawbreaker and Sunny Day Real Estate. By the mid 1990s numerous emo acts emerged from the Midwestern and Central United States, and several independent record labels began to specialize in the style.

-There's a sadness to the human condition that I think music is good for. It gives a counterpoint to the visual beauty, and adds depth to pictures that they wouldn't have if the music wasn't there.
-They say it's better to bury your sadness in a graveyard or garden that waits for the spring to wake from its sleep and burst into green.
-Today we bury his remains in the earth as a seed of immortality. Our hearts are full of sadness, yet at the same time of joyful hope and profound gratitude.

This scene grew in the '90s due largely to the breakthrough success of 'emo-core' heroes Fugazi, but by the new century, the term emo was being associated with more commercial punk-pop acts such as Jimmy Eat World, although none of these bands were willing to define themselves as emo.

The origin of Emo lies in the roots of history. It’s originated as a style of music, which was incorporated with many independent variations of music styles with some existing music styles. In mid 80s the word Emo was used to describe the subgenre of hardcore music and
On the later stages, the term Emo was used to describe the emotions and the band artist who belongs to this stream of art followed their own independent style of music which expresses their feeling the most.
When we talk about the Emo culture, it describes something that is not related to any type of trend or bound. As a culture the effect of Emo is very much seen on fashion and the culture. Most of the youth and the teenagers are affected with it. It is a way of leaving where there is no bond of the society and nothing which is to be followed. Every one comes with their own style of fashion and living that is unique and expresses their own state of mind.

Depression has many elements. Almost everyone has experienced depression in one form or another. Sometimes, however, it becomes a full-scale disorder that needs to be professionally treated. "It is estimated that at any given time three to four percent of the nation’s population will be suffering from a major depressive or manic episode,"
"Depression can result from any chronic or severe illness and is a common reaction to stress and disability," . People with physical handicaps are "more prone to depression" because they often think and worry about their loss or disadvantage. "Lacking true intimacy with God, yet desiring it, can also lead to depression, particularly if the person uses a standard defense mechanism of blaming God for everything that goes wrong,"
hmmmp am i depressed?

Topic: To argue why abortion should be illegal in all cases.
Thesis Statement: With every abortion that occurs another inaudible scream from the
unborn child occurs and the rights of that child are taken away .
Main point #1: The first reason why abortion should be illegal is that abortion is murder.
Subpoints: US Supreme ruling on Roe vs. Wade never stated when life begins and also
only protects the life of the mother not the child.
The hypocratic oath that doctors take says that the doctor must try to save the patient for
dying; however abortion doctors are doing the opposite.
Main point# 2: Cases involving rape and incest.
subpoints: To explain that in most cases incest is rape.
Why should the unborn baby be condemned?
Solutions in case of rape.
Main point#3: Should be abortion be illegal in cases that the mothers life is endanger.
Subpoints: If the problem occurs as result of a cancerous uterus then an abortion as a
result of a hysterectomy is acceptable.
If the abortion is performed to save a mother's life then it is wrong, i.e.
complications at birth.
Solution is that the doctor should try do all they can for both the mother and
Conclusion: Tying together all the topics and one last aruguementive to explain why
On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court legalized abortion. When
the it ruled that abortion was legal, the court not only gave women the right to choose but
also gave the unborn babies a right to die. Since that day, millions upon millions of
unborn children have been ripped apart, burned with saline solutions, and sucked from
their mothers' wombs. With every abortion that occurs another inaudible scream from
the unborn child is silenced and the rights of that child are taken away .
If someone where to be asked if murder was wrong, the general answer would be
yes. When that same person is asked if abortion is murder, the answer may be yes, but
most likely the answer is no. Why do most people think that murder is wrong, but do not
agree that abortion is murder? The reason for this contradiction is that most people
believe that the unborn infant is not a human, but an organ or part of the woman's body,
which would make the act of aborting the child just the same as removing an appendix.
This problem of when life begins stems from the inconsistencies which come from the
case of Roe v. Wade. The Supreme Court interrupted that by the ninth and fourteenth
amendments that a woman has the right to an abortion. The court that day, however, did
not rule when a life begins for a human. If society is to assume that a fetus is a human
the second it leaves the uterus, then what is the unborn baby three minutes from birth , a
monkey. When an unborn baby is aborted, society must realize that an organ was not
taken out, but a living human being. This would make abortion wrong because according
to law, no one has the right to take away anther's life.
With many people considering the cases of unwanted pregnancy due to rape or
incest to be acceptable, they must realize that the child is not the crime. Society's reason
behind this is, why should the woman suffer from the pain and remembrance that the
pregnancy brings. Even though cases of abortion due to rape and incest only make up
one percent of the total number abortion performed, there is no reason why 15,000
unborn babies should be murdered annually. Why should the baby be condemned to
death because of a crime that was committed by another person. If innocent people
should be condemned to death because they are the result of the crime, then instead of
imprisoning or putting death a convicted murder we should kill one of that prisoner's
family members. If the woman does not want to have the baby they could either carry the
unborn baby until full term and give the child up for adoption, or go within twenty four
hours to a hospital and have the rapist's semen removed before conception.
The last reason why abortion should be wrong is the use of it as genocide. With
the growing technologies in the world today, society is able to see and hear their child
inside the mother. Technology today also allows humans to find out if there is something
wrong with the child or if the child is male or a female. Many times this advanced
warning can help the parents cope with the trauma if something is wrong with their baby;
however, many couples are opting to have the unborn babies aborted rather than keeping
them. The couple's logic is that they were looking out for the child's well-being or that
they did not want a girl but a boy. If they are trying to protect their child, why do they kill
the unborn baby? God for some reason is giving them a child who is not normal and
rather then parents thinking that the child is a blessing the parents see the child as a freak
of nature. God will not have giving that child to them if He knew the parents could not
handle the child. Parents are also using the same technology, in order to see if the child
will be a certain gender. There is nothing wrong with this, but many parents after finding
out the child does not have the gender the want abort it. Almost fifty years ago the world
stopped a man named Hitler because he was committing genocide. The reason he was
murdering millions of people was because he wanted a race of blond hair and blue
humans to rule the world. If the Holocausts were consider wrong fifty years ago, why is
not the genocide that is happening in the United States. Also the world would be a dull
place if society was made up of one gender and people with a certain eye or hair color.
Many different reasons are given why women have abortions in this country.
Since the decision of Roe v. Wade, twenty-two million unborn children have died. With
these children dead, so are their dreams and ideas that could have revolutionized the
world. When the government allowed abortions to be legal, they also put themselves in
the same category with men like Stalin and Hitler. The citizens of the United States need
to wake up and see that the holocausts did not end in Germany but continue today on
American soil. At one time blacks did not have rights because the were consider below
white and not citizens. America needs to realize that unborn children are also citizens and
have rights. Even though these babies can not be heard and are not able to contact their
congressmen to suggest that a law against the murdering of them should be legalized,
society should realizes they have a voice through their vote.

Summer is an important season for the social agenda of individuals. Generally, the summer season in most regions of the world has an evident increase in tourism. Outdoor activity is also a hobby, taken by many people during this season, due to the warmer and more favorable conditions. Leisure tasks are also associated with summer, due to the number of people on vacation.
