    Yet there are people out there that shoot and set cats on fire for shits and grins

    Maybe we need perspective.

    Whenever she'd get into one of her severe paranoid states, my sister would hate any stray animals that she didn't recognize. After I found a few of them when she was done with them I just tried to keep all the strays away from our yard.

    Set that kid's arm on fire for a couple seconds. Might cure him of his cruelty to animals thing.

    These last few days my energy levels have tanked. I am struggling to cycle places, falling asleep in the afternoons, basically a zombie.

    I don't think it can be side effects from my pills as I've been on them 3 weeks now and this has only just started.

    I think my mood has improved, but I'm kind of too tired to tell.

    What medication is it, if you don't mind saying? Some drugs, like Prozac, take a while to be effective because they need to build up in your system.

    But I like individual therapy.

    :(

    Except my therapist cancelled this week cause she was sick and I really needed to talk to her...

    I'm not going to be able to say anything in a group.

  • KwoaruKwoaru Registered User regular
    You don't have to say anything! Except maybe introducing yourself

    Just going and listening to other people who have problems like yours can be incredibly helpful

    Nope because all my problems are stupid and theirs are all so much more important than mine and It's impossible to relate one to the other.

  • KwoaruKwoaru Registered User regular
    That isn't true at all!

    This is my problem too

    I always feel like my issues are petty bullshit and everyone else has bigger problems than me

    which, I will grant, some people do have bigger problems than me

    but not everyone

    and that's still no excuse to not talk about it

    Well I guess I'll have to call tomorrow to see what time it is.

    Uhhg.

    I can't sort through this mess on my own and I don't think a room full of people is going to help. I hate being around a lot of people at once.

    How about we split it? I always hated going to group sessions because I felt like I was saying too much about my shit and that I made people think that their problems weren't as bad as mine.

    heres how i see it being a total win situation for you
    1. stay with your wife while she dog sits. this wins husband points since she knows its out of your comfort zone
    2. have sex all over her friends house so that the next time you see her friend look at you condescendingly, you can wink back knowing you did the freaky deaky where she eats her cheerios.

    I have a psychiatry appointment at 9 AM tomorrow, yay!

    I just hope the doctor doesn't decide to prescribe me stuff immediately. I'd kinda like to see if I can deal with this without drugs first.

    It's not even about not finding out whether or not that's true. It's about this just being a manifestation of your brain being a fucker. Look through this thread at how often so many of us have talked about how their problems don't feel important compared to other people's. It's literally irrelevant what others in the group do or don't think about your problems, because those problems are affecting your quality of life in a very real way. Your head is just fucking with you. Go to the group and give it a try.

    i finally picked up some SAM-e and took a dose last night. i think i'll stick to 200mg daily for a couple weeks, then up it if there's no effect. if it does start helping, i might abstain on the weekends just to be sure i don't build a tolerance.

    kind of related, but i just got insurance for the first time in a decade, and i'm leaving the country for three months come April. sigh. maybe i can at least get an eye appointment and new glasses.

    Europe. gonna au pair for my sister while she gets established / until her husband goes over. it's gonna be really nice to spend so much time with her and deniece. i've worked with babies and toddlers now, and i'm much more confident in their care than i was when the little was born, so it's good timing.

    See

    if your problems actually were petty, like wrong toilet paper orientation or whatever, it would hardly affect you, you wouldn't even be calling them problems, and you wouldn't be so stressed out.
