Rhythm

Hi justlost; I hope this response doesn't feel like a high jack but I am speaking to your feelings. I hope it seems that way. I've been thinking about and writing about rhythm lately. After all, polarity, bipolarity, bipolarity type II; there all about the swinging rhythms of emotion aren't they? So...

Worse Feelings

I think there are worse feelings isanyonethere. I too, use the same ploy but I don't believe there is any shame in it. At the heart of it, I do believe we must live for ourselves. But I also believe it is an honourable thing to live for your parents as well. It is a sign of our Love and Gratitude. A...

Keeping Hope Alive [or Open Communication]

I'm going to say something that might seem harsh, but could lead down a path to some more peaceful interaction. The reason I'm responding is because I believe there is hope. I think I understand pretty well, the situation in Panama, how upsetting it must have been, and how isolated you must have fel...

Actually, artist2, for me it's less a problem of what I spend my time doing and more a problem of what I spend my time not doing. Some of the things I avoid doing, (picking up, cleaning, shaving, exercise) I can overcome with practice, effort, and attention. But there are a host of things, (arithmet...

Your feelings are very familiar. It's a warm feeling to be part of a group, safely in the middle of a crowd. But for the most part everyone is somewhere closer to the edges. Some of us are very far out. I'm learning after 52 years, that some people are not easily happy; doesn't matter why really, th...

I'm not sure how closely my experiences will fit yours, but two things come to mind: Second, I loose my appetite when my mind is full. Sometimes, I'm laser focused (been a long time now) and so involved in a project that thoughts of food or hunger just don't come up. Sometimes my mind is so full of ...

Hi delsina363; I wish I had something more empathetic to say except, I know what your going through. I am only a few years older than you and I believe that many of the things you have been through, things your burdened with now, are common to the struggle with depression. Isolation; both feeling th...

I have a sister; actually, I have four sisters Mommyofone, and all four react differently to my concepts of depression as applied to me or others. But I have this one sister; she's intelligent, logical, successful, she's actually a good listener. But since we were small children, she has always been...

I think it's true, Havanesemom, that correspondence threads are the exception rather than the rule; and in general, long threads are about lighter topics. It's nice to see that people do come into the fray and continue to respond when someone is seeking help. Sometimes people just need to vent. I th...

That's where so much of 'our' pathological behavior comes from, doesn't it [from fear]? Trying to banish fear; where does all the fear come from? It has to be taught doesn't it? That inability (or unwillingness) to love each other [or is it just me?]; that comes from fear too doesn't it? Our ability...

Conflicted conviction

Sometimes our beliefs are so strong that we feel they must certainly belong to everyone. At least, sometimes mine are. Sometimes our beliefs are so tenuous, that we need to give them the force of conviction just to reassure ourselves that they might be true. At least, sometimes mine are. I also find...

Article

Sorry LR, we don't allow polls or links on the forum. But I skimmed your article and I think it might be worth posting in total here for people to comment on.

Thanks.
