School Rambling

Posted by Lucciainthesky in Lucciainthesky's Blog, 19 September 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

I've been feeling like it might be time to start thinking about getting back to school so I can get back on track to becoming eligible for my school's nursing program. I've been watching a lot of Nurse Jackie lately, and it's been bringing back my desire to become one so I can help make other people feel better (minus the whole drug addiction part).
I...

Lighter Note

Lighter Note If you have a guinea pig, you are probably laughing because you know how true this is.  Guinea pigs are like pint-size cats, but with attitude.  Cats are laid back, and willing to let you believe you are the one in charge most of the time.  Guinea pigs dispense with this illusion, and just let you know from the start what furry, cute, lovab...

What If I Hate Teaching To Groups?

Posted by Hertz in Almost Random, 18 September 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

I have doubts about working as a teacher.
I'm realizing the internship I'm doing will serve to validate whether I want to teach classes or not.
Sometimes I enjoy tutoring, because it's so easy, especially when it's in a subject I'm very familiar with. It's easy money, and it's not boring.
On the other hand, managing a group sounds like a pain in the a$$....

Waking Up

Posted by MrMisery in Coming Back To Life, 17 September 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

It's been a roller-coaster journey, this past ...lifetime.

There are a lot of things I've had to go through, to realise a some things that I suppose should be obvious.

I've strung together a few good days now, and I think I'm starting to see some good signs about my health. Temporary though they may prove to be.

I'm better rested. And, if I'm absolutel...

Feeling Guilty

Posted by duck in duck's Blog, 16 September 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

I am  just remembering how I failed to take good care of my late dad. I was so stressed and becoming more and more depressed every day.  I was so weak.  I wanted to hire an aid worker  to care for him but my sisters did not believe there any good help out there. They wanted to do everything and that caused tension between us. It's all...

Lowering My Expectations

I like to  sit and think about writing; about how I'm going to do it "soon".  I'm always pondering what I WILL write about. But I'm out of the habit of sitting down, every day, to do it.
 
I guess it's because I've moved a lot latel...

Except for the last 2+ months, my depression was just getting worse and worse (every since late 2010, that's how long this episode has lasted). But once I stopped taking the anti-depressants and found the right anti-psychotic (Seroquel) medicine I started to see myself stabilizing somewhat. Something about AD's, I just don't tolerate them. Regardless, it...

Great. Now I've Done It.

As mentioned in my previous post, I drank like a fiend over the Labor Day weekend. Here it is Friday, and I'm still suffering from digestive issues and a profound weakness whenever I try to do anything very physical. I just walked the mile to work and broke into a sweat before I got to the office. Yeah, it's really humid out there, but that mile walk norm...

My Light Is Dark

Posted by maxedgrace in maxedgrace's Blog, 01 September 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

Words cannot express the deep nothingness I feel.  Rather I feel something, it’s all bad, it’s all depression.  It’s all dark, sad, angry and scary.  It’s all nothing I want anyone else to ever see in me, on me, consuming me.  I’d rather you all see me sleep.  Not that I escape it when I sleep, it...

Constant Thoughts

Posted by justaguy13 in justaguy13's Blog, 27 August 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

This past week I haven't been able to stop thinking about ******* myself. I've had thoughts like this for years but this is the longest I have thought about it without a break. I've been utterly miserable, totally isolated and I feel like I've got nothing to live for. I can't stop thinking about how terrible I am and how terrible my life is. How even the...

My Journey

My Journey Hello there, readers. 
 
I have been journeying without a map and without any support for a journey that had no name.  Until yesterday.
 
Yesterday was a big day for me.  After years of therapy, medications, false starts, and much self-hatred, I finally found the Right Doctor.  I found her by luck, by doing a search on the...

I did it. I talked. It all came out. My mom was mad cause I looked at her wrong, and I broke. It was hard, and we talked for hours. My head hurts now... But things are going to get better. While talking, I learned something about my family. Depression isn't uncommon. My mom has it, my dad has it, my brother may have it... What hell, huh? One big, happy fa...

Stuck

Posted by jackotheshadow in jackotheshadow's Blog, 17 August 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

I've been depressed for several years. I've been suicidal for most of it. In the last few years, I've been losing touch with everyone and everything. This was probably happening in the first place (perhaps one of the reasons I got depressed in the first place), but it's been getting more severe. More specifically, I've spent the last couple years avoiding...

Stop This Madness, I Want Out

Posted by Shmooey in Shmooey's Fort, 16 August 2014 - * * * * * · 0 views

So after gaining 89 pounds between Geodon and Abilify over the course of a year and a half, I stopped taking Abilify three weeks ago (had already been off Geodon for nine months).  Got Abilify withdrawals, got through it, though not without key people at work now knowing my mental illness (except the DID). Switched successfully back to Haldol which h...

I'm Ok, You're Ok. No, Really... !!!

Hi!
 
Just want to reiterate something I've said, and others have said in many different ways before.
 
I was MADE this way.  I wasn't born depressed.  It's not inherent to my nature.  This is not a birth defect.
 
Circumstances have made me depressed.
 
Now, YMMV - there may be some folks out there with genuine innate i...
