Depression Vent Room for Misfits

This week, Depression has been ok…so far.

My two rare diseases is another topic tho and usually are the reason I experience a peek in depression.

I’m sharing this post…this question is often asked to individuals with disabilities which is part of ableism.

A lot of things went wrong today. I still didn't get a call from my boss even after he told me he would call again. And when I said something, he *****ed at me and said he is late on his project. I'm supposed to be understanding. It's not professional at all. I give up on the call. If he wants me to work for him, he'll call me.

I'm sorry I haven't checked in for a while. I hope you're all doing ok. I did better today than lately. Thank you, Skeezyks, for saying hello. And Fuzzybear, thank you.

All things considered, the Skeezyks is doing okay... Hope all other misfits will soon be able to say the same.

Smile Re: Depression Vent Room for Misfits

I've been taking Clonazepam for... oh... a year or two now (memory fails me.) I was taking it to help control my anxiety / anger issues, plus it has (in the past) seemed to help quell my tinnitus (I had been on it once before for that purpose.) I also was taking it because my pdoc said it would help "smooth out" what had started out, years ago, as restless leg syndrome but which had gradually spread throughout my body.

For most of the time I was taking Clonazepam I was on 1.5 mg. per day. A couple of months back, however, I pumped it up to 2.0 mg. per day due to a sudden unexpected increase in my tinnitus. At this point though I'm not sure how much good (if any) it's really doing. So I've now cut back to 1.5 mg. per day again. I'll see how that goes for a while. And if that seems to work I may continue to reduce my dosage further & perhaps even see if I can get off of it altogether. I've read that the effectiveness of Clonazepam tends to wear off the longer one takes it; so it's typically prescribed for short-term use not long-term.

I don't like TWATS (those who are always terribly smug)

Not anyone on these forums

Much love to all

Thank you, Fuzzybear! We don't need smug people here, that's for sure. I think the way these forums work best is to recognize the value in each other, & like you say, show respect.

This week has been difficult, many difficult challenges I need to face as all of you do. But i wish my family was better off economically and they did not have to ask me for money. I am fighting depression, fighting to get my daughters back (in Japan of all places a country not of my own ) and plus the world becomes less tolerant to minorities for some reason and I wonder if I am in a War Zone, mental, economic, not yet violent, but Japanese could become Nazis in no time if they so wish. At which point I need to pack my bags and go and give my children to God. So many bad thoughts …. Please give me some advice friends..

Dear @captaineo, I feel your difficulty. I don't know the answer that you need, but many of us here do care very much!

Ironically, I realize that I feel ashamed to post in this thread about myself. Do I think I'm supposed to have it all worked out for the rest of you? I know for sure that none of you are making me feel that way. You post here because you feel like misfits. So that's proof to me that someone(s) has/have taught you that you don't "fit in." So here I am, just me (a penguin? ) who feels depressed & feels like there's no safe place to vent. Oh, well. So here goes. I have voices. And sometimes it feels like I'm in a world that no one else can understand. So, I'm definitely a misfit. Recently, most of the time, I see that I'm a total mess.
