I'm so sick of feeling sick.

Got back from my walk, took a shower, and all the muscles in my upper back and upper arms feel stiff and sore and has made it hard to really get anything done or to find motivation to do so.

And for two weeks before that, I was having all sorts of problems with side effects from antidepressants. I have been having a lot of problems with anxiety and maybe, possibly, an avoidant personality disorder in the past few months and I was prescribed an antidepressant I used to take for a few years many years ago. It only kind of worked but the side effects were too much. So now I am taking another antidepressant I used to take for a number years after that first one and while I am not having side effects that bad (though I am not sure if this muscle pain isn't a side effect itself) it's not yet having the desired effect. It might get there when I can safely up my dose though, but in the meantime I am still depressed and anxious and reclusive.

But perhaps it's just because I am  apprehensive about getting back on anti-depressants in general. I used to be on them for about a decade and a half. I spent a number of years trying to get off them but never feeling like I was in a place where I could get off them without plunging back into depression. In that entire time, I kind of existed in a state of a sort of emotional flatness, cause that was just kind of what they do. Never too down, never so anxious as to be crippled (well not too crippled) ... but never really in touch with how I really felt about anything, least of all about how I felt about myself.

That kind of changed around 2011, near my 30th birthday, when things came to a head in my life and a lot of things happened that would ultimately lead me to decide to come out of the closet about a few things about myself, and which lead me to find a relationship for the first time ever. In the momentum of that moment and with all the optimism it brought, I decided I could, and needed, to get off the antidepressants, I thought I was free of the things that were keeping me so depressed all the time, and I just wanted to ... rediscover myself. I didn't want to feel so emotionally flat all the time. So in 2012, I weaned myself off them.

At first it was great, it was like I was myself again, after 15 years, I was kind of discovering that I was a more passionaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

What do you mean am I for real?

Normally it's fine to state opinions. But think about who you might influence with ideas like that. If you don't know what you're talking about, and the topic is something as important as how to treat a life threatening mental illness, then don't say anything at all, man. Telling people to try herbs before they try the advice of a doctor, without actually even knowing if herbs have any effect what so ever, is like telling someone to try curing their life-threatening bacterial infection by pouring baking soda on the wound. At best it'll be mildly effective, at worst it'll get someone killed.

You know how much regulation there is on alternative medicine? FUCKING. ZERO. you could get shite treatment, pay a premium, and you'd be taking this so called experts word for it. At least when you go to a doctor you know you're getting something that actually works the vast majority of the time.

>Second the point is to try other thing which mean find out about other ways YOURSELF you lazy bump.
Oh, right. The way you found things out yourself but can't name a single treatment that would even remotely work, while I can and have brought up both alternative and real treatments that have empiric evidence to support them.

But yeah, I'm the lazy "bump"

You're right. That was just rude of me. I guess what goes around comes around.

We've had a few of these threads lately, haven't we?

It's a hell of a thing though. I doubt there really is any convenient way to lay all the strings straight and make everything right. Even when they work "right" the damn things are an enigma. If I may take a turn giving ill informed advice. Don't focus too much on happiness or distracting or making it all invisible. Treating a problem like it isn't there doesn't fix the slow damage it is doing, and telling yourself it isn't bad only makes it worse when it turns out to be bad after all.

Scientists estimate that most of the other Earth-like planets we have discovered are considerably less dense and have lower gravity than Earth does.

This means that should we ever visit one of these planets, we would be super strong and super fast there. We would be able to lift massive amounts of weight and leap miles huge distances. If we find intelligent life there, our bone and muscles would be much more dense than theirs. We would essentially be super-powered compared to them. I don't know why we aren't sinking more money into this.

Last I heard, nearly all earthlike planets we've found have been much more massive than Earth, because they're easier to find.

How do you deal with crippling depression and soul crushing sadness all at once?
Has anyone yet figured a tutorial for it? Because I'm desperately in need of one.
Trying to go out and making friends didn't help me, made thinks more awkward, and I could go on for a list of shit I used to do to calm myself but that would hurt the site's rules and what not so, please, can somebody just point me a magical solution my life?
Thanks.

It gets easier.
Every day it gets a little easier.
But you gotta do it every day, that's the hard part.
But it does get easier.

From my own experience I can say that depression is like alcoholism.
You never cease being an alcoholic. You are one till the day you die. You can just be better or worse at keeping it contained.
That's a lot of hard work, and sometimes you're just not strong enough to handle it by yourself. That's why there's psychotherapy and medication.
But you can never rely solely on medication either. If you want to handle depression, you need to, above all, get your shit together. Not once. Not twice. Every day. It's like whipping yourself with a barbed wire. It hurts, it often backfires, it makes you want to crawl back into the comfort zone most of the time.
But eventually, it gets easier.

Hullo Cookie im not remembering if we've met before. How have i been?  Creepy according to Manley, rather peculiar and a bit acting out as of late tho as of yesterday i don't see any discussion about it over on /canterlot/ so it seems my crazy hasn't been bothering either enough people, or those people enough to create any ...incidents or anything.  So far.

Yes i grew up with Garfield and remember liking it for many years (had cats much of my childhood) but somewhere along the way it grew stale to me and hasnt been somwthing im fond of for a long time. But i loved it once, so at your recommend i will endeavor to wade through this thing you've posted and see what happens.

Did you see the short someone posted here recently about payong vet bills for pets? It had garfield getting diagnosed with the consequences of his diet and o dont wanna spoil it, but it didnt end well for the cat.

Its nice meeting you Cookie. Do you like ponies? Im a pony addict, cant get enuf.
