Whew! I am embarrassed at how affected I am. I cannot stop crying. I really did not know the man. He was famous. He was an actor/comedian on a screen to me. But somehow, I feel as if my best friend or sibling just died. I can no longer function. I went from happy-go-lucky to a blubbering idiot. Am I affected? My life as I know it, has changed irrevoccably, however you spell it. I am a shell of the person I was a week ago. An empty shell. An empty shell full of pain that nobody can see, but OHHHHH can I feel it. It is overwhelming. It is swalowing me whole. It sux! I am heart broken. But except for the tears, it is an invisible battle I fight alone. manic depression is a silent killerView Thread

With all the stuff going on today with mental illness and firearms, there was a suggestion that therapists should be able watch for clients that are a risk to themselves or others. But what if the client just has a bad day, or something? How could they be able to determine that anyway? So if their therapists put that person on a watch list, and maybe a few months down the road they need to purchase a gun for self defense purposes, or a job requirement? Their name gets flagged and you have law enforcement at your door step asking why. Could that scenario be possible? Couldn't something like that be unconstitutional? Just because a person has a mental disorder shouldn't automatically disqualify them from owning a firearm. I was diagnosed with bipolar 7 yrs ago, and I own a firearm. I wouldn't dream of using it on someone or something else.
Just advice or sources would be so be appreciated!!View Thread
Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission.....
I was binging on buttery popcorn for a couple of months until I had my gum surgery and switched to ice cream, then potato chips ( I hid those) BUT I am going to bed right after I eat so I can stop eating. I sleep 12-13 hours since I am going to bed so early.
When I wake up I eat breakfast (good), eat low-calorie lunch (good), then I get home ummmmâ€¦and eat a lot of snacks and consume them quite quickly I might add like I haven't eaten all day (but they are healthy snacks now that there is no junk food in the house) but then I eat big portions for dinner (not so healthy comfort food for the last week or so) which makes me feel good to eat so I am not depressed while eating and not depressed while sleeping.
I am just tired and mildly depressed all the time and I have gained some weight again. Duh!!!!! I am so mad at myself for not knowing this sooner. So in therapy I will come true about my binge eating and try to get help with this. It's embarrassing to admit I am a little piggy in secret though she can tell that by looking at me. Everyone in my family is overweight. I did open my window blinds today at work to let the sunshine in and it did help but I am very hungry. I think.
