As Much as I Can...

Last December I came to DU in a very bad place. While DU was by no means my sole source of support, it did help. Since, I've gotten stronger and am now in a much better place. I've tried to use my experience as a point of departure in talking to you all here and folks in chat. But the collective nih...

even tiny progress is progress, ya know? An inch today. An inch tomorrow. It will add up over time. Conserve energy. Go slow. Slow is okay. :)

The Four Noble Truths

Ya know, I try to say it without being obvious. I try to bring my experience to this table at DU. But the core of my recovery and management path comes by way of Buddha's teaching called "The Four Noble Truths." I really do believe that no one here could read the short paragraph of the 4NT...

What are you willing to do?

.. to find a solution?

Do you want solutions or do you want to vent? Both are good. But only one results in a path of sustained recovery and management.

What are you willing to do? Nothing? Everything?

Frame, I've been working on it for years, but, I'm learning how to not take pain and suffering in life as personal. Seems good and bad come in equal measure in life. A lot of it (maybe most) is unavoidable. So, KNOWING its going to happen (without regard to your actions sometimes), is it worth the e...

Man of Steel

"... in time, you will help them accomplish wonders." It was an inspirational message embedded in a fantasy movie. Something, I don't know what, exactly, prevented me from throwing out the bathwater (the visual candy of the movie) with the baby (the message). Somewhere in the Bible, it say...

Hi Frame

That is a powerful, if pointed, question.

My response would be (truly), "I need an excuse?"

This is an interesting development. However, I truly believe its only the beginning. I would predict that even if an effective drug therapy comes from this, sufferers will need to be trained to re-direct habitual thought patterns. Thousands of people will take the drug and then exclaim that nothing ...

I would be curious to know if your husband is "self-medicating." With all those chemicals released during climax.

You're background sounds interesting, Alaska. I'm in broadcasting as well. I'm an audio post production mixer for Discovery Channel...

I can certainly understand how cab-driving might agree better with your mental health!

Continued hopes for you...

Hi Guys, I do have a job. I've never been out of work as a result of my depression, but it has affected my work. For the last 7 years or so, owing to the nature of my work, I am alone in a dark room about 80% of my time. Last year, when my life seemed to go to hell, I would have crying-jags which no...

Wow, Frame. You spotted something something I didn't know anyone else really saw... jj and I are of the same mind regarding many things. She and I have discussed mindfulness, compassion, and how these things have helped each of us. This approach (or these approaches, maybe) have helped two of our ow...
