2. Depressive state

Getting pretty convinced that no relationship is real.

And it's probably because I dealt with a fair share of negativity today.

And was laughed at for it. And they're probably still laughing.

3. Turn your computer off

Go for a walk. If you work out, do your work out. Get out in the sun.

Take care of yourself, retrowire. It's no joke.

6. It's my phone

And I'm at work on a rainy day.

Those would help but not at the moment.

But just hearing back from others is helping.

5. Retro, I'm here for you.

I read through the thread earlier today and decided to keep out of it since it was getting pretty heated.

Adding, I thought you handled it really well.

10. It was the "Is this all because Bernie..." post.

I read all the way through and thought you held your own very well. It was one of the first threads I read this morning. It's refreshing to touch base with some sanity once in awhile. DU's been kinda crazy lately. It's the first thing I check in the a.m., then (obviously) several times during the day, too

12. Retro, put the phone down, take a break from it for a day or two.

Speaking from experience, constant stress will just burn you out.

Please pace yourself, all of us need to pace ourselves.

30. sort of

I recommend a psychiatrist (if at all possible). They are the specialists in mental health, but if a knowledgeable family practice doctor or nurse practitioner does it, that's cool too. I'm just glad you have them

26. Sorry to hear this.

-Turn off the news and watch movies, sports, sitcoms, nature or science shows
- Hang out in the DU lounge to stay close to your community
- Go to Ebay and search your favorite toys from when you were really little
- Sometimes it helps me to seek out humor. Read The Onion or 27b/6 (written by a guy who brilliantly trolls any idiot who jerks his chain).
- Go out and browse in a place you like to browse: library, bookstore, dollar store, mall, anywhere where you can wander around and look at stuff you like to look at. (Museums are great, but not everyone has one near.)
- Organize something easy at home (a couple of drawers, not a major closet.) It helps me sometimes to impose order on something I actually can control. I also feel that I accomplished something because I did.
- stay close to family or friends.
I hope you feel better soon.

31. Do you have understanding friends or family?

Someone you can talk to? Any kind of support system?

My meds were prescribed years ago while I was still in CA, by a psychiatrist. MY GP here refills them. Its a chemical imbalance. Mostly genetic, some environmental. Nothing to be ashamed of, or embarrassed.

Its ok. Get help. Please.
