21) Message boards : Cafe SETI : Depression (Message 1875503)
Posted 26 days ago by Profile SciManStevProject Donor
Post:
My wife has always been depressed, even since she was a child and tried to kill herself by deliberately walking out in front of a car. When we first got together, we tried treatment with medication, but that sent her on a chemical roller coaster that almost ended in her death. Years later, things got very bad again. Our regular doctor gave her a medication that helped a lot. She is still very depressed and easily triggered into severe bouts, but overall is much better than she was before medication. In addition to feeling like she doesn't care about anything, she is extremely negative about most everything. I do my best to reassure her, and provide the best I can. I never force her to do things, but do my best to guide her to good decisions. It doesn't always work. I know that depression is a serious ailment that one can't just snap out of. It is a life altering situation. Sometimes the treatment can be even worse than the disorder.

When my grandmother passed, her daughters found a whole huge jar of her toenails in her drawer. They didn't go off when found, but it was perceived as gross.

I have a cousin that had no home or food. He robbed a bank for $50, then went outside and sat on a bench waiting for the police. In jail he had food and shelter.

Of course, regardless of which countries are affected by the travel ban, about 30,000 US citizens are shot every year by other US citizens.

As for me, an outsider, I think you should fear your countrymen more than the very few terrorists operating in the US.

I agree 100%.

Yes, and that is part of the irony. We are trying to ban citizens from the countries that didn't harm us, and allow the ones that did.
Of course there is a lot of money in arms sales and oil between the US and Saudi Arabia.

There is a bit of irony in the travel ban from Muslim majority countries to keep us safe, when no terrorist from those countries have killed anyone on US soil, but 30,000 people a year are shot by our own citizens.
Steve

Not really true. 9/11 comes to mind.
But banning so many Muslims to travel to US because they are Muslims...

The 911 hijackers were not from the targeted travel ban countries. Most were from Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is not included in the proposed travel ban.
Egypt is also not on the list, and some of the hijackers came from Egypt.

I am very glad it wasn't worse than it was. You were very lucky that a tree didn't directly land on your house, and that you and your kitties are safe.
Out of sheer curiosity, do you have a way to post some pictures of what happened?

Again, I'm very glad you are OK.

This shooter is the result of Kathy Griffin and Steven Colbert claiming to be comedians, Shakespeare in the Park showing the likes of Trump being repeatedly stabbed claiming to be art and all the countless tweets and all the hollywood shows calling for violence against Trump.

This president has brought a lot of anger to the surface, both in the objectives of the alt-right, and those that oppose those objectives. A lot of anger has been uncovered through out the country, regardless of which objectives one aspires to.

Dang Mark. Your luck sounds like what has been happening to me lately. Every project I attempt turns into a repair, sometimes caused by the work on a previous project. I wish you the best with getting through this time of Murphys Law.

I am lucky that here in New Hampshire, studded tires are legal year round. I only use them in the winter, but they make a massive difference in safety.
I can drive in bad conditions with much more confidence. I still never go to fast or take chances, but I know I have a better grip with studded tires.
For my wife and I , maximum safety is the requirement.
I consider them essential winter equipment.

I have always wanted to live for hundreds of millions of years. It would be facinating to watch plate tectonics in action. Long term geological changes, the coming and going of species, the changes in cultures would all be facinating to watch. Of course I would still want to retire at 67 or so, and would need to be impervious to wars, famon, meteor strikes, etc. I would just like to be around and witness all the changes.
