  1. Hi, you posted a thread about the Welbutrin honeymoon phase. I can't thank you enough! I thought I was losing my mind! You said you leveled off. What did that feel like? 8 weeks into my 300mg Bupropion, I am no longer euphoric but devastatingly depressed again. Does this go away? Or is that what leveling off feels like? I'm not sure you post here anymore, but I thought it was wo...

  2. I hope you had a fantastic day :)

  3. Hope you're doin' well, Burgy.

  4. Burgy has taken a break from Depression Forums.

  5. (((((poeticgirluk))))) Getting rid of those pesky testes this November should help ease up the body hair. I wish I had less of it myself (hair I mean, lol). I'm constantly "manscaping" to keep it in check. What Crystal said is so true. We all have hangups about our bodies, even the people who you might think have ideal bodies. It's more a matter of inner self-esteem, and that takes some time to build. You're headed in the right direction, so keep it up. LOL, you crack me up.
  6. Hey, hope your havin a great day...

  7. Happy Daddy Day! And happy Summer Solstice! First day of summer today!
  8. I'm so excited for you (((((poeticgirluk)))))! A dream come true!!
  9. I'd say I'm not amused. I'd ask for an apology. I'd want to speak to the management.
  10. No worries, Rick. You're clearly not making value judgments. There are so many perspectives of sexuality in its many forms, surely none of us will see it in the same way. Bisexuality is a bit of a hot-button issue, since there seem to be many who either don't believe it exists or somehow resent those who identify as bisexual, and then of course there is the whole bisexual community (of which we have many here) who might feel invalidated or wrongly judged by those sentiments. Studies of brain structure regarding sexuality have been scant and inconclusive, and most medical and psychological establishments will tell you there are most likely many factors that contribute to a person's sexuality, having to do with both genetics and environment. It can make a person crazy to try to figure out what made you the way you are. The most important thing, in my opinion, is to love and appreciate yourself for exactly who you are, regardless of any of that.
  11. to DF and the GLBT forum! Don't feel bad. It's not so uncommon to feel attracted to people in a different age range, even a different generation. I've gone through phases of that myself, and still occasionally find myself contemplating a relationship or just a sexual encounter with someone significantly older or younger. There are so many reasons why this can happen, and if you'd really like to explore that, I'd suggest a good therapist that has experience with sexual matters. In my own experience, I've found a certain comfort in older men, and excitement in younger men. There's a kind of father/son dynamic to it that can be mutually fulfilling and nurturing. I don't think you're strange at all. You won't be judged here. Thanks for introducing yourself and sharing your feelings.
  12. Hi uksarah, I hope that posting about your feelings helped give you some relief. I can't imagine the confusion and torment you must be feeling. I understand how difficult it can be to accept oneself as non-hetero, and to come out to friends and family. But I've never dealt with the gender identity issue. I wish I had more advise about that, but there are a few DF members who are going through that, so hopefully they'll chime in soon. I do hope that you're able to be independent soon, to get a job and a place of your own, so you'll feel freer to make decisions that are true to you. I'm sure you feel a bit oppressed living with family when you know how opposed they are to both your sexual orientation and gender identity. That's quite a lot for parents/family to accept, but I hope in time they come around. You'll always be welcome to talk about your true feelings here, and we'll give you all the support we can.
  13. That's great to hear, jd21! I was hoping you'd find some help about that with a counselor. I hope you enjoy your summer, too.
  14. Hi burgy

    Hope all is well with you xx

  15. to DF and the GLBT forum! Please don't torture yourself. Fantasizing is such a natural, human thing to do. If it were more persistent or you felt compelled to carry it out, you'd want to talk to a professional about it. But it was obviously some fleeting thing that you'd never act upon. I've had my fair share of inappropriate fantasies, whether sexual, violent, cruel, etc. Everyone has, whether they feel comfortable admitting it or not. Think about some of the outrageous stuff that happens in our dreams. The mind spins off on tangents sometimes, and it's impossible to fully control it. When something like that happens, acknowledge that it's just a harmless fantasy. The big deal here is not what crossed your mind for a moment, but rather how disturbed you are by it still, and how much you're beating yourself up over it. Give yourself a break. There's a big difference between an idea and an action. It's good to have you here in the GLBT forum, although this is really not a gay issue. Everyone deals with this kind of thing. I hope you're able to be at peace with it.
