RE: The Depression/Anxiety Thread
My god, depression seems to be my closest friend right now.
I cannot seem to push it away.

You can do it if you want it bad enough. I didn't think I ever could either. But I was surprised how easy it became with help.

hugs and ice cream always. And some sleep.

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

You cannot successfully determine beforehand which side of the bread to butter.

Same here. I've had lots of therapy and read all kinds of self-help books to address issues from childhood and adolescence. Frankly, I got so used to always being depressed that it would feel so weird when I wasn't; so I would dig up something out of my head to get that way again.

I really saw that it was holding me back from being the mother I wanted to be for my kids, and the companion that my husband deserved.

When I realized all that, I also came to the conclusion that there was nothing that I could do about my issues except go forward.

I'm not saying that you should "snap out of it" ( Censored I really hate that phrase) and do what I did; I'm just saying that this is what helped me. And I hope my advice helps you.

If not, I'm glad you read my post all the same. Big Grin

Oh I hate that very much. The ex husband used that one on me. And it helped me so much that by the end of our relationship I tried to put a big ol bullet in my brain. oh goody. And if I can do a 180 from that "hell" anybody can.

Wilko Johnson has spoken of the strange "euphoria" he has experienced since being diagnosed with terminal cancer.
The former Dr Feelgood guitarist said the news made him feel "vividly alive" - and lifted the bouts of depression he had previously experienced...

I would really appreciate it if you guys could link me to some online self-help books.
That would be wonderful.

Cognitive Therapy helped me a lot when I was in therapy. It helps with the distorted thoughts.

Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy David Burns - I remember this book being recommended but can't remember if I read it or not. It is supposed to be a very good book.

I read the best book but I can't find it and don't remember the author. I'll post it if I figure it out.

Two of the best things you can do for yourself is exercise and spend as much time out side as possible. When I started hiking my depression as well as my entire outlook on life did a 180.
But something as simple as taking a walk around the block or just sitting on your porch for a while can help.

I will post about that book if I find it.

I found it. I knew if I searched online long enough her name would pop up.
This book helped me more than any other book I read.

RE: The Depression/Anxiety Thread
Hey guys,

I've been dealing with a strange mixture of anxiety, tiredness and tooth issues for the past three weeks. I HATE this. I don't know how long it's gonna last, since the paperwork is still in order for coverage for the (maybe) crown and (most likely) root canals.

I feel strained from all of this. I'm going through a constant pain for two teeth. There's no ebb and flow. It's always there. Even with pain meds, it's there. Eating is a nightmare. I'm not hungry much now. I like food, but it's all cardboard now because it goes down quick so sharp pains can be over quick. Sleep is now napping during the night. Like *more* so than before.

I'm still cheerful and the like in short bursts, but now I'm questioning my actions all the time because my body is like "Hey! Alert; some shit is going down, but you'll never guess what it is: your teeth!" It brain ninja's me every single time.

I don't like it. I don't even know if it'll be gone once the work is done on my teeth. I just fear it's gonna get me in an even bigger sinkhole than now.

If my posts fuck up; you know why.

CTS
