    ja! no, i didn't mean to imply that you were one of the people who thinks it's always someone's "fault" - i was just kinda commenting generally i see that a lot of people on this forum seem to struggle with anxiety and depression, and i thought that perspective would be helpful to some.

Even more years ago when my father died I went to the dr because my tongue was swollen an I couldn't drink water. Was the weirdest thing ever and he said that I had gotten oral thrush. He said he's never seen an adult get that that didn't have an immune disorder. After lots if tests he said that it was my stress that caused it. I didn't know I was stressed.

    I have had a lot happen these last few years involving my ex husband that my bf thinks has made me depressed. But I can't tell. It would make sense that anyone would be. But I don't feel it. I mean I feel upset but I can't dwell on negative feelings too long. It just takes too much energy.

    So I think our bodies will often tell us before we realize it. It's nuts.
    Totally. I went through a really stressful few years a while back. Eventually I was diagnosed with anxiety and was depressed for a while. My close friends and family knew I was different, but I really felt like I couldn't pinpoint what was wrong for a long time. I have a really hard time being in touch with my negative feelings, and took a few years and losing a lot of weight to realize something wasn't right. I just thought I was fine and getting more uptight as I got older or had more responsibilities or something. Like oh I'm not just a carefree kid anymore.

    I'm trying to learn how to be more in touch and okay with stress and other unpleasant or negative feelings, but I've always lived in a really fight or flight way, and it's hard to break it. I've been doing yoga and meditating, and it's helped a lot. It helps me unite my mind and body and tune inward and acknowledge my thoughts and feelings (emotional and physical) before they go unattended for too long.

    Thanks

    Edit: I've never had anything like the tongue thing though. That's really bizarre, and make me wonder how related our experiences are. Does my thing sound e7 related or just normal? I used to blame this on inferior Si actually...
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I actually was diagnosed with depression on two separate occasions, and I may be having a relapse.
    I also was diagnosed with anxiety on three occasions.

    I think I just lapse in and out. Hard to tell anymore...





    I am going to bed...
    I crave sleep all the time anymore, and have been looking forward to sleeping since I got up this morning...

    Yeah, but I'm better at catching myself now, and don't do it as much as I used to.

    OK, I will...
    I've been busy with my novel, though...

    I'll do it tomorrow.

    Well, if you ask me, your posts are oozing sadness! Get it together, Magic! Idk who you really are, but I'm willing to bet you're more than the person you make yourself out to be.

    You posting this tells me you don't like acting this way, so change it.

    You can start by stop using so many damn ellipses. Seriously. That just projects uncertainty, and it's completely unnecessary. Everything you've posted carries the same message without the need for those silly ellipses. Commit to what you're saying, gosh darn it.

    OK.
    I went on an outing Saturday, and I genuinely felt better for about twelve hours or so afterward. Now that snowcone season is over, I need a new job. Money goes really fast, even if you still live at home and your basic needs are being met by your mother. I like having a little pocket change just to escape my daily routine even if only very rarely. Our town put in a skating rink, and it is very good.
    By the way, I still think you have the cutest dalmatian this side of Disneyland!
