    Burned out. I haven't been doing much except playing in bed analyzing my thoughts. Internally i feel much better doing this than I have been working, but I wish my energy and concentration would come back. I want a job, I want to work, I want to study.

    I'll drive myself insane with these thoughts.

    Long story short, my self-esteem is battered because of an incident that happened regarding a relative in July (other than the anxiety and depression that relapsed.) I am insecure, unconfident and I hate myself. There are days when I'm better, but on days like today... I feel worthless, hopeless...

    Tired of Myself

    As my username suggests, I am tired of myself. I am tired of my life, and that I am going nowhere. I feel that no matter how much I try, I simply cannot keep up with other people I know. It seems like everyone is meeting life milestones in a more timely manner than I am. I am 28 and...

    Access to medications - poor are always at a disadvantage

    Just looking at info about Cymbalta, an antidepressant I could get full coverage for when I lived in Manitoba, but it is not covered in British Columbia, where I now live, and it's bloody fucking expensive.
