A Really Weird Time Lately

Pneumonia sucks. The infection is gone (for about 1.5 weeks now) but I'm still so very tired. I'm told this is how it goes. A friend of the family recently died very unexpectedly. Of course, that kind of event stirs lots of existential questions into one's mind. One result of this is telling my wife...

Re: Just...

Thank you for your note, Starsfalltoo....

I'd love to invite you to re-read my post, in totality; I think you'll discovery that my tone is far less self-loathing than it may seem (at first).

Kindly,

Just...

That gnawing feeling that you are always doing something wrong. That everything you do is not right and met with silent disapproval. To nova-off the sense of always being wrong; of doing it wrong; of disapproval. To burn-off the want for constant habitual approval. A pain that is not needed or wante...

Hi nataly, Being a guy I can tell you that the guy/rebound thing is a total myth. At most, dating so soon after a big break up is a distraction technique to keep from thinking about the immediate past relationship. This my view, but I feel pretty strongly about it. I hope you start feeling better so...

An answer you've probably heard many times before: seek-out and commit to therapy. Beginning to respect and like yourself more is the stepping stone to relationships. My thought would be for you worry about YOU for right now. Get yourself in a better place (with professional help) - other things wil...

There is a phrase that I am fond of saying in these kinds of discussions: the truth will be far stranger than we can possibly imagine. theologically, scientifically, mathematically. It will all come apart in the presence of what is. How does it affect people with depression or anxiety? I believe tha...

Please know, despite your tag line, you are not just another person with a problem. The Universe resides within you. Poetic, I suppose, but I believe it. Like you, I've been in a place feeling like I'm not there. Therapy helped a lot. Some training about how to re-route my thinking has helped, too. ...

What I Think

I've been considering this subject for a while and it's something I believe, at least, for right now: I believe depression is the net result of a given human's instinctual pre-civilization drives fighting the demands of modern society. Society demands that we behave in ways our ancestors never did. ...

First, Hi and Welcome, DDJ, Your path sounds like its been so hard. I'm sorry you lost your mother this way. But, oh my, as understated as it is, your journey from that point is inspiring and hopeful. You took the bull by the horns, to use a cliche metaphor. I, for one, am happy to hear you've come ...

Erica, The injustice you have faced is outrageous and makes me quite sad. I'm so sorry you are having to endure this. I'm sure you've considered legal recourse regarding your former job, yes? The expense can be prohibitive. Perhaps there is a group/foundation/association that champion the rights of ...

Something may have to give, but that "something" should not be you. Talk with your husband about the new reality of you being in a wheelchair; discuss and strategize about mobility. I know that it is easy for me to talk about that. And I apologize for not fully understanding your situation...

I'm going to write something that comes out of intuition. To me, it is a call to hope for you, smallcat (specifically - for you). You say these things, and yet, your fundamental body wouldn't be here without the explosions of stars from millions or billions or years ago. Perhaps that means nothing. ...

I don't Know What this Is

... coming into work this morning, I was reminded of situations, one after the other, of situations that I regretted or felt sorry about. I do that a lot seems. Really far back in my life, too. I find myself aching over my son and daughter's childhood; right when my depression asserted itself. Perha...

Hi peanutbasher - and welcome! Interesting name! How'd you come up with it? Sounds like a complicated home life, but despite it all you sound good. Ya know the thing about men is that they like to fix things. Maybe your husband is at a loss when it comes to trying to help you. Just a random thought....
