MARINE TIM: too much of a pussy

BARTENDER TIM: would drink all of the beer

WILDERNESS TIM: well... there's always the "put your best foot forward" factor. He could make it work.

SILLY WANKER WALKER TIM:



As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: So
Sometimes when I'm down, the last thing I need or want is advice because I already know what may help, but need to ride the wave or don't feel that I have the energy to do the things that I know will help.

Other times, I really do need advice on how to get out of the pit! Since I don't know you, and don't know which helps...here's both.

Ideas: Boost some seratonin with exercise, nature's wonder, affectionate contact, or humor. In the low motivation moments, exercise doesn't feel possible to me, but I've figured out even a walk around the block helps.

For riding the wave and getting some understanding...I really found the blog "Hyperbole and a Half" quite wonderful. Because I've had so many episodes like this, I also know that they are temporary and even if I don't do anything, how I feel in the moment will change. This is only true if it's situational. If you have biochemically based depression, it's a different story. Still might shift with time, but not necessarily.

Hope it gets better soon! Don't know you at all, but the experience you describe is definitely familiar.
