Fellow ADHDers, I need advice! How the hell does one deal with hand lotion?!?
Without wearing rubber gloves around the house all day.
Some more context: I work in a workshop so even before the evil C I washed my hands with rather rough/scrubby washing paste more often than actual soap.
But due to high stress I started washing my hands way too frequently at home as well. As in, I washed my hands 10 times in 20 minutes, at one point yesterday. And obviously I have hand lotion, even strong one, but I can not keep my hands from doing things, touching things. So I just didn’t bother with the lotion for now.
People were saying that apparently in this episode some important stuff between Pi and Mhok took place, so I checked out their scenes and well, I wasn't expecting this.
This whole love vs obsession thing is interesting and I liked Mhok a lot this episode. You can just see that he gets Pi, he understands him and never thinks little of him.
Pi just has so many insecurities and less self-worth that he struggles a lot when he interacts with others. He never really felt worthy, so why would there be people caring about him? He can't accept this and the "crush" on Nan is clearly the obsession with someone who seems to be everything Pi wants to be: kind and good-looking. Pi doesn't get that love for someone doesn't just come from looks and all of the other superficial things. He just likes Nan because of who he seems to be from afar and from the outside but it doesn't really seem like Pi has much interest in really knowing him. He just wants to look at him and crave him but he doesn't necessarily need to have him because he doesn't love him. That's the whole point of this story.
Pi and Mhok's story is in some way the "enemy to lover" trope but I think it's more than that because it's about Pi learning that you don't fall for someone because of his looks and behavior, you fall for the person as a whole. People tend to look better in your eyes, when you know them more. It's two thinks affecting each other: appearence and character.
Maybe I'm reading too much into it at this point but I do believe that the rain starting was a metaphor connected to this whole "fish upon the sky" explaination. Pi says there are never fishes in the sky nor stars in the ocean but then it starts to rain. The rain is connecting the sky to the ocean and Mhok catches that raindrop. It could be that the "fish" comes down to earth and the "star" flies up to where Pi is and then is able to catch both. Mhok is not unreachable for Pi and Pi is already confused about his feelings. Nan is so distant because Pi never really invests time in getting to know him for real but he does know Mhok and Mhok is not a "fish upon the sky" or "star in the ocean" for him because there is no such distance. Later on, Pi breaks down in the rain with Mhok comforting and staying with him. Like I said, Mhok is reachable for Pi. He is the fish coming down to earth or the star flying up.
But I think Pi's mom was too harsh to address Pi's insecurities in that manner. I know, she probably didn't intend to but saying that she doesn't like her son any more because he changed his looks gives him even more struggle. For him, it was right to change and maybe it was even the cry for approval of his mother. And now, it looks like this decision wasn't right again. Of course he feels like he never does anything right if his mother treats him like this all the time.
Yeah... I am really surprised they have serious moments with relatable emotions. This show definetly didn't start as a strong one but maybe, if they manage to keep those kind of scenes up, it can be better. Still not outstanding or strong or for recommendation but fine.
