Re: The depressing depression thread

Medication and exercise (even just taking a walk around the block) have both helped me. Music is good as well, and watching shows, especially comedy. But you need to find something that works for you of course. I didn't get completely better about the kind of things you mentioned until my medication...

Re: Books you're reading now

I read The Handmaid's Tale... and then learned that a series was about to come on out Hulu. I don't have hulu though, but that was interesting timing. Mind you, I read it because my new boyfriend was reading it, and it's possible he started reading it because of the TV show, so maybe not a coinciden...

I just wanted to drop by and offer virtual hugs to those who could use them *hugs* I know I'm not very active on the forums anymore, but I'm still really grateful for the help I got here so I do my best to drop by every now and then.

Re: The depressing depression thread

Thanks! I emailed my teachers today (I didn't go again) and I'm going to try and do as much of the work from home as possible. Last night I found myself despairing in bed but my husband woke up and gave me a bear hug and I just try to forget about everything else, and it helped a bit. I'm lucky that...

Re: The depressing depression thread

My depression is bad again. I made an appointment with my doctor but it's in a month. Why does it take so long to get an appointment in the US? I miss France :( I've already skipped school once and I haven't done any homework. I feel like just dropping out completely. I'm scared. I'm going to try an...

Re: The depressing depression thread

My husband is in Vegas for a tournament and I'm feeling incredibly lonely. Which is weird because I have six pets and my boyfriend lives next door, and I've felt much less lonely in the past at times when I was actually alone. I've been trying to work, study, play games and watch shows but I can't r...

The allergy analogy may not be so good or may be perfect, based on your stance on the subject: it has come out recently that the reason peanut allergies (and many of them deadly) have become more and more common in the US is because the "nut-free zones" prevent people from devoloping an im...

George and Sissi have both used the quilt too but I didn't have my phone (and therefore my camera) on me at the time. Trouble spends a lot of time on it. They all seem to enjoy it a lot :) Thanks again!

You're welcome, King Kool! Glad it all arrived on time. The book was because of previous gifts exchanges between you and Elomin + Sunstone. It was half gift gag, half hoping it would be good anyways.

Well the pattern called for crocheing as tight as possible, but I wasn't doing it that tight. I didn't have any trouble sliding it through until it broke. But I'll keep an eye out for that with my new hooks, thanks for the advice :)

Not sure if it was addressed to me, Valliac, or just coincidental venting, but I didn't pick next-day shipping, and I'll keep that in mind :)

Any reason you keep spoilering that word? I keep having the "what if it's a spoiler for something I haven't consumed yet?!" fear every time I click, and it's not like it's a bad word or something.
