Am I crazy...?

My baby girl loves carrots. The other day I had come home late from work. Tired and hungry, I decided to cook some spaghetti. It was nothing impressive, just average frozen spaghetti. I noticed there were diced carrots. Just after I finished the late meal, the thought that my child would have wanted...

A silly confession

Clinical depression first struck me when I was in college. Back then, internet was a luxury and mental illnesses including depression were pretty stigmatized-- if you are depressed, or suffering panic attacks every now and then, you try to hide these "abominations" and pray no one ever not...

Re: Stopped therapy

Dear mamamoon26, thank you for sharing your experience. Also the airplane simile is awesome. I will try again to explain to my wife why I need therapy, and if that still doesn't work, I'm thinking maybe I will try to arrange therapy on the same day of revisit to my immunologist. Wish you well. Dear ...

Stopped therapy

Starting mid-February, I'm taking a long break from work. After lengthy discussions with my therapist and wife, I finally confessed to my boss about how lupus is adversely affecting my performance, and that my doc has suggested I need a break. I fully expected to get laid off, but my boss was surpri...

Re: Lost my personality

I could have written this when I was in college, except forums like this didn't exist and depression was an abomination. I faked lots of things, such as high spirits, motivation, ambition, anything that is generally expected of a young person, but I could only fake so much. Someone once said we coul...

Re: Me ranting about my current life

Hi Bryan, I see my younger self in your post so I want to put in my 2 cents. Like you, I was raised with morals, taught to be nice, helpful and all, but was awkward and had few friends. In fact I'm still awkward to this day and friends remain a luxury. One thing I've learned the hard way: there's a ...

Re: My friend is highly depressed - Need advice for treatment

Based on what you've written, I assume you're still in school. If that's the case, I'd suggest your friend start with the school counselor. It's only natural she's in shock as such significant information was thrown at her while she was totally unprepared. However, do understand there is a criteria ...

I know something's wrong, but don't know how to fix it

I'm severely sleep deprived lately. Not that I could not fall asleep at all. It's more like I have been resisting sleep. I know this is bad. I'm tired and zone out too much during the day. Needless to say my productivity is ruined and it's only a matter of time before my boss finds out. The lupus is...

Re: Umm

Sorry you're going through such a hard time. DiegoArgentina92 mentioned support groups and I agree they are a nice option if you don't feel like talking to a therapist. Hospitals usually have specific support groups, like cancer, depression, addiction etc., and where I live these are free. Maybe ask...

Re: Need some advice

You're welcome. I'm glad you passed the test and got to celebrate the one who means so much to you. A well-trained counselor would likely never push you into doing anything. They would ask lots of questions, like what do you think about this, how do you feel about that, what do you think you would d...

Re: Need some advice

Hi Undertow, Sorry to see you go through all these problems. If you think your med is not working, feel free to discuss with your doctor. There is no universal prescription for everyone, and your doctor will want to know if you need something else to help you. This can be a long, tiring process, and...

Re: And there's another episode

Hey Dana,

Thanks for asking. I'm still hanging in there, I guess. Still get to see my wife and kid, so maybe there's still hope.

Wish you well.

Re: Someone talk to me please

It sounds like you are young and struggling with life, which is complicated and sometimes overwhelming. Though I personally don't think finding a date online is a nice option, I guess I understand your choice as I was once extremely shy. It was easier to start the talk when there were only words on ...

Re: I am just trying to be a little more open.

I'm sorry you've been through all this hardship while you deserve a peaceful and happy childhood/adolescence. Please try to believe that none of your parents' relationships and problems are your responsibility, because they are not. Your parents decided that you grow up without your biological mothe...
