  1. This makes the living hell of depression sound poetic at least//// Hugs
  2. Please stop and think, its not the way out, do you have a rl friend you can talk with. I understand how you are feeling, but there are better solutions, think of your kids and how they will feel. Call a help line. Chat with us, so we can help you feel better. Stop drinking alcohol for this evening…. It can act as a depressent. Stay with us 🍒, hugs 🤗
  3. Nope, COVID test is a waste of time……. Treat the symptoms you have and avoid people til you feel well, thats a responsible action.
  4. Google is great if you know what you are looking at but otherwise it can be scary. Medical care seems to have gone to the sh1ts post pandemic. In the USA they will bankrupt you, here in Canada they will teat you if you can find a doctor, our local emergency department now closes from 8 pm until 6 am, and isnt accepting ambulances at all. Are we better of with free medical care, I dont know. Honestly
  5. You feel bad and overwhelmed by it and look at saying goodbye as an easy option, but its not. What is causing you to feel bad, may as well talk to us here because we have been through or are going through similar experiences and might have something constructive to offer you
  6. I feel for you, drinking plenty of water and eating a little happy food? Hugs
  7. Sorry to hear you’re in pain. Its hard to handle at times, how about a cold beer and some chicken wings? Then you can go to sleep relaxed.🤗
  8. Maybe you suffer like many of us do from SAD, The shorter days, sunless days, snow storms etc make us extra depressed or anxious. The coming storm does look bad for snow but do you have to go out in it. Can you not buy a little extra food and binge watch something on TV until it passes. Weather reports are designed to get us anxious these days, so stop watching them until it passes…..? winter seems mild but long this year, you’re not alone. Big hugs to get you to your happy place.
  9. Hope your vacines work over there. How are you feeling today? Better a little or like you have a rough cold still
  10. I gave presentations to up to 5000 people in Vegas, and the key to controlling anxiety is to know your subject. Open with something easy and non confrontational and build the audience with you. You control your anxiety by staying light and easy at this point, then get into your topic as you build your rapore with the crowd. Use eye contact with a few. Hardest group size to present to was around a hundred…… they all see you and you them, at 5000 you ain’t got nothing to lose so just go for it. Hecklers can be disruptive so hopefully you dont have any of them
  11. -41 deg F here, cold enough to freeze the nuts off a brass monkey. Only going to last another 24 hours, then we warm up enough to get snow. Lol. Gotta love Canada and its winters
  12. Anxiety is best helped by meditation if you can. Breathing techniques do work for a crisis. But keeping yourself busy is very effective especially if its focussed exercise. Changing the way you percieve things is also good but thats expensive therapy. Laughter with a friend can help a lot too. All of these require energy because its down to us to make the changes, so I often opt for the soft option of listening to relaxing piano music, cuz thats all I can muster.
  13. I joined a community drop in centre where I can go get a coffee and chat to others who are in difficulty with mental health. It helps sometimes but other times I skip it because it can get heavy…..
  14. I’m annoyed with myself, I reversed into a driveway today and accidentally hit a railing that was buried in snow. It pushed in my front wing, not too bad but enough that I will eventually need to knock out the dent. one careless moment and a lot of snow! i’ll wait til snow season ends in April before attempting to fix it, in case somebody hits me in the meantime. Its bumper car season.
  15. Good luck with the water leak, toe and job application. Hopefully the universe will sort it out for you!
  16. Had a better day yesterday, I actually found the energy and motivation to put my cross country skis on and go g=for about an hour of easy stuff. I knew this would give rise to today where I am tired and unable to motivate myself to do anything! So now I'm munching through some roasted almonds and wondering how long it is till bedtime. It just started snowing again so soon I think.
  17. Sorry your feeling the depths of depression hard. Try to look at some small positives you may have accomplished today, no matter how small. You wrote down how you are feeling here, thats a plus, to share with others how you feel. Did you get up and brush your teeth? Or take a shower. Things like this all count as positives when we are feeling at rock bottom. Hope you pull through and see a light somewhere
