I really wish I had some answers.
I remember you talking about your wife before, she got you that book right? From the sounds of things, I think she understands. I mean, she can't know what it's like to go what you're going through but love stands stronger than that kind of shit.
It's not about "what good you are" to her. You're you and you're there, and that's enough.

That sounded a lot less crap in my head. Sorry, I hope the meaning's understandable.

Nothing to be sorry for, man.
Wish I could be more helpful though :L

There's no need to apologize, Jones. But Slendy is right, your wife might not fully understand what you're going through, but I'm sure she's doing her best and, more importantly, she has not given up on you. You're going through a hard phase and she knows that.

Ah, everyone gets that way every now and then. There'll always be someone here for when it gets too much from my understanding. Sympathetic internet people are amazing.

Well you mentioned going for the Fire Department interview tomorrow, that should help shouldn't it?

Good luck Jones. I'm hoping you'll get better.

[up] Seconded. I hope things get better for you Jones.

I don't think you need to apologize, considering everyone could just ignore your posts as well. Remember that people choose to answer you. Nobody here is obliged to do so.

So I see, a couple of pages ago, ATC saw self as sort of The Artifact of old TVT, I have to say I feel the same once in a while. But, the thread moved on, so that's all from me here.

Ugh, I'm drifting apart from the person I've been best friends with since Freshman year.

Thankfully, I still have other good friends, but this still really sucks.

Ouch, that sucks, Haldo. Like, you said, it's nice that you have other good friends.
Momentum, a function of mass and velocity, is conserved between portals. In layman's terms: speedy thing goes in, speedy thing comes out.
My parents think I should see a therapist due to my extremely accurate self-esteem and general wangstiness. I said I didn't think that would help at all "why should I pay someone to say the things you've already said to me?" and that it would be too expensive. I'm really ashamed that I fought with my parents. I was feeling really depressed last night, but I had resolved not to complain about it to anyone in real life or online. Didn't take me long to break both of those resolutions.

@apathetice: It does sound like you could benefit from seeing a therapist. What you need to remember is that your parents are not mental health professionals, so seeing an actual mental health professional could actually greatly help you, if you can let them. The biggest step to improvement is wanting to get better, so give it a chance.

And don't feel bad about "complaining" to others. It is remarkably difficult bordering on impossible to face off against any issue related to mental health and prevail on your own. There are other people willing to help you, as long as you let them
Through the eyes I have known you.

[up][up] Yeah, seeing a therapist is probably a good idea. They have an outside perspective on the situation, and might have better suggestions than your parents.

I want to die, but I can't get professional help at the moment.

[up] No money for a psychiatrist, just hung up while waiting for Crisis Center because they were taking 15+ minutes to answer.

Well, turns out all those inconveniently-timed phone calls that were always around my class times were from my hospital trying to follow up on the therapy thing.

And so they sent a letter, and then Mom found it.

Thankfully I really DID have no idea that I couldn't just call up the mental health department and then see a therapist for consultation (which explains the hell I went through trying to call people), so I was mostly truthful when I gave that as the reason I didn't tell her first.

And now Mom completely fails to understand that I can't talk to her about things because she will inevitably say, "going to church/believing in god/faith will solve everything." Regardless of her being Catholic, "faith will solve everything" is NOT how I see things.

Unfortunately, my doctor is on medical leave and aside from going to her co-workers, I can't actually talk to HER until next year.

I just managed to get Mom to let me make my own decisions about my mental health.

[up][up] Anything you need to get off your chest?

[up] Well, that's a good first step, telling your mom to let you decide your mental health options. smile

And I reaaaaally couldn't tell Mom that a lot of my issues have been alleviated by my work with a Native medicine woman. Mostly because I need answers to all the stuff that's been happening, and seeing as she's very experienced, she has a lot of answers.

I still need a normal therapist because there's a lot of issues that really have no spiritual cause at all.

Mainly concerning child abuse, and my mom's refusal to accept my choice in career.
