  1. Has anyone done this? They give u a sedative pill an hour before your dental work. And then top up with laughing gas if you’re still anxious. My last few dental appointments have been horrible and I need more work done very soon due to the dentist not doing it right last time, probably because I was so terrified. Now I’m going i a new Dentist. But the sedation is not covered by my plan and it’s going to cost me $650 plus tax:( really cannot afford that but can’t see a way around it last dentist appointment I didn’t sleep for two days before and was absolutely shaking and flinching the entire appointment. I can’t do it again. I need the work done now because of severe tooth pain and I may be changing jobs soon and the new one has no benefits for six months . If you have experience about this please share I would really appreciate it.
  2. How Is Your Weather Today? (16)

    Delightfully crisp and fresh with a BLANKET O’SNOW. I love snow so I’m pretty excited .
  3. What Are You Eating?

    Korean take out at my brothers place. Black noodles, jap chae, bulgogi, chicken and glass noodles. All good. Some nasty grilled mackeral dish that I couldn’t eat and i normally like fish.
  4. Saw bladerunner yesterday. Very cool. I’m a huge Philip k d**k fan. As a person who has suffered depression I really felt the themes of isolation and numbness and pointlessness in the film. All that being said I kind of have a pet peeve of movies that are three hours long unnecessarily. I get they wanted it to be a deeper story and not a glitzy action movie but still, there was a lot of scenes that could have been wrapped up a few minutes earlier and cutting like thirty minutes out of the film would have made it better not worse. Amazing picture and cinematography tho.
  5. If u haven’t read the novel “do androids dream of electric sheep “ nor seen the first bladerunner I think there are parts that will be hard to wrap your head around. But u could read the Wikipedia articles of the book and first movie rather than read/watch them if U prefer.
  6. What Are You Eating?

    Butter chicken, lamb Rogan josh, naan bread. Why is curry so good ?????????
  7. What was a small victory you had today?

    There was a problem at work today and instead of just agreeing to it I was very frank about my concerns and gave my boss an earful about it. She ended up reversing the problem. It felt good.
  8. Ruined my career and maybe my family

    Sorry to hear of your situation. Have u tried treating your depression with the doctor, medsnand counselling ? As for job changes I have had 6 professional jobs in my field in 6 years and I am on the verge of landing the 7th. The feedback I always get at interviews is that I have a ton of varied experience and that is a good thing. It’s a new generation now and people don’t stay at the same job forever. It’s competitive in my field in the sense that workplaces have high turnover and finding good candidates and keeping them is a challenge. I get bored easily and I don’t see the point of staying at a job where I don’t like the boss or when I get ghe opportunity to make more money.
  9. Excessive worrying about grades

    Ack your post reminded me of university very much. It’s natural to worry about your grades everyone does it. But it sounds like you’re also ruminating About it. If u google rumination worksheets there are some simple worksheets/strategies to cut down on rumination. Remember , worrying will not improve your grades and the stress could actually make you get worse grades . Studying, attending class and taking good care of yourself including mental health will help with your grades the most!!!! Good luck ;)

  11. The "How Do You Feel Right Now?" (4)

    Option 3!! I’m so sick of organizations getting away with this garbage. They are not going to be able to prove it was u and this way you don’t have to worry about takin action at work. Tbh the media can do more than an employee anyway right?
  12. Sorry to hear of your situation! Have u thought about checking out some self help books at the library ? I find these really helpful. If u don’t have a library membership u could just lounge in the library for a bit. -listen to positive or uplifting energetic music -positive podcasts radio shows etc -watch comedy movies and stand up on Netflix etc -If u can get in the habit of an daily walk. -drink hot tea all the time -search for jobs for one hour per day make a list of jobs u want to apply for and when the application deadline is and then apply for at least one job per day -don’t worry about Xmas quite yet ! It’s still a while away and your whole situation could change! If it comes to Xmas and you can’t afford gifts think about the people u want to gift and think of one favour u could help them with and make a little coupon or card and say- “I will help you declutter your garage” or mow your lawn or something . Also could look on Pinterest for extremely low cost gift ideas. -find free activities. Programs at the library? Check with your town or city. Speeches or events at local universities or colleges? Maybe volunteer ? -try to reframe the situation as a temporary period in your life where you may not have money but u have the gift of time. Use it to take good care of yourself and try new hings you always wanted but didtny have time for -if you’re looking for a free or borrowed instrument put an ad on your community fb page or kijiji- there’s some good ppl out there could maybe help! Or maybe there’s something you could swap trade or barter services in exchange for an instrument hang in there things can improve :)
  13. What Really Bugs You (7)

    Child family services/child protection services! I just hate them. Working for them ruined my life and now I have to communicate with them about certain clients and they are so damn awful. Robot lady worker today told me (about a family I’m trying to help) “oh them? It’s *just* poverty. There’s nothing I can do to help them”. Nice. And actually there is a solution to poverty.
