    Nope.

    You're talking about it and recognize you have a problem. Which, if TV has taught me anything, is a big deal.

    Seriously though man, just try and reduce what you're taking.

    I will, I will.

    Luckily I'm 18.

    If there was ever a time for stupid drug use, I guess now would be it.

    That's some amount of drugs, Swordfights. I'd listen to these gents.

    I'm just lucky I have my ex-girlfriend as a best friend still. Otherwise we probably wouldn't be having this conversation.

    Whoop. I was depressed! Started taking Citalopram, which to you colonials is... "Celexa" - like, the old version of Lexapro. Now I'm anti depressed! :D

    I totally recommend it. But... it's not a cure all. Not by any means. I still have very bad days. :/

    We call it Citalopram too, because we have the generic version people get for cheap.

    That's what I'm on, Raven. Just started, eh, a little over a week ago. Already seeing improvements in my mood.

    Also if you're having bad days you may need a supplementary prescription like Abilify or wellbutrin.

    God damn I sound pathetic.

    Nah man. But you do have a problem, so you should try and resolve that shit man

    I have had depression all my life and only recently did I actually try and do anything about it. It's not really got any better yet, but I live in hope, and simply talking about my issues has actually been a help in some ways.

    Ahh, I'm trying to keep my drug use to a minimum. And definitely only SSRIs, I'm wary of Tryciclics and would never consider MAOIs. The improvement over what I felt a few months ago is totally enough. :D

    My great-grandmother suffers from Alzheimer's and she doesn't remember me anymore.

    It really is a shitty, shitty thing.

    My grandfather was diagnosed with symptomatic Alzheimers once, as a side effect of oxygen deprivation from pneumonia. It was a slow decline, over six or seven years, and by the end of it he wasn't himself by any measure of the word

    He knew who I was for the most part, and then he started to confuse me with his youngest brother. He remembered his daughters and his wife for longest but eventually all his wires got crossed and he'd only have a vague inkling that he was acquainted with people

    I think what really got to me was that he was an engineer. Over his lifetime he'd trained to repair steam, diesel, and electric trains. He'd worked on the Flying Scotsman, he'd met the Queen, he was a prominent part of the rail union, he was this that and the other and he was a very bright man. He used to take things apart and put them back together again partially to see how they worked, just to keep his hand in, but mostly because he could.

    And then one day he took apart his radio and he couldn't remember how to fix it.

    I guess all I'm saying is... sorry to hear that, Orikae and VI

    Orik and VI, I hope you get some serious healing soon
    Spoiler:

    Swordfights, that's rough stuff man. I hope you keep feeling like it's something you can talk about. In my experience, things get a lot worse when you can't.

    Since we're talking about Alzheimers, let me take this opportunity to say "fuck dementia"

    There are grades to Alzheimers, 1 through 7, depending on how progressed the disease is and such. There was this patient on my last ward, he just jumped went a whole grade worse overnight. From that point on, he got so restless that he didn't sleep anymore. Like, at all. It got so bad that he was falling asleep while standing up.

    I kept putting him in bed, trying to get him to sleep. No dice. Felt so bad for that guy. :/

    One of my uncles is dealing with early-onset Alzheimers. It's terrifying.

    Unless you have pain you should probably stop taking the vicodin and valium, swords, unless you truly need them (and not out of addiction).

    Taking drugs is wonky. They can interact with each other, which is why every doc will ask you to list out all the meds you're taking.
    You won't know if the stuff you're taking for anxiety and depression is working if you're taking that other stuff for fun.
    Also, don't mess with your dosage unless your doc said you could!

    Okay so

    um

    I was taking the new dog out for a walk, and he came across some kind of roadkill and picked it up in his mouth

    I kept telling him to drop it, and he wouldn't, so I tried to pry it out with my fingers

    He growled, snarled and then took a chunk out of my hand

    First, do I need first aid beyond antibacterial soap/band aid

    Second, how fast should I bring this dog back

    No matter how cute, dogs are animals.

    Animals do not like having their food threatened. Especially by relative strangers.

    He obviously has some food aggression issues, instead of throwing your hands up and condemning it, just sign up for some obedience classes and work with the dog.

    Don't give up on the dog.

    We had to work with our dog to not get all growly with her pig ears.

  • joshofalltradesjoshofalltrades Parental Unit RemulakRegistered User regular
    I actually never got close to the roadkill, the dog took my hand off before I could

    A dog is a responsibility not a hooker you throw back on the heap once it does something you don't like.

    Grow up and teach your animal some manners.

  • I Win SwordfightsI Win Swordfights fuck tough be coolRegistered User regular
    I fight with my dog over bones and pig ears. He's a big wolfy bastard but I put him on his back paws up and then let him have it.

    I'm a jerk but the dog respects me.

    Also, I have two kids in my house with a baby on the way, so a dog that has the capability of being aggressive like that really isn't in the cards for me!

    Blake stop trying to bring up your hooker pile in unrelated discourse

    this is exactly why i suggest trying to find it a new home if the aggressive behaviour continues

    You kick your son out of the house if he bites someone?

    At most it's a stitch or two and I bet you it's not even that.

    But you know throwing something in the too hard basket is heaps fun too.

    My cousin has a big old pig named Bacon as a pet

    He's blind as a bat and charges anything near. So all you gotta do is stomp on the ground a bit and he gets all scared for a moment then calms down.

    He is the best pig

  • joshofalltradesjoshofalltrades Parental Unit RemulakRegistered User regular
    So now I'm wondering do I need to go to the emergency room and get it looked at to see if I need stitches

    Because the blood is pooling up around the outside of the bandage and it still hurts more than, say, if I slammed my hand in the car door
