  1. General Chat
    My friend and I were chatting this evening about the recession becoming a depression. I don't know much about "how recessions start", "why/how this recession started in the first place" (my friend told me it was the States fault), or "when it is going to become a depression". This topic...

Besides, the side effects were not pretty. After I educate myself about the anxiety and its connection...

    So, I admit, I have some mental issues. I can be quite a handful sometimes, and a bit dramatic. I always thought of myself just having anxiety/depression. Last year when I was in the mental hospital they told me that I may be bi-polar. I freaked out and thought they were not listening to me and...

    First I want to apoligize for this long post. This is hard for me to type so if I ramble I am sorry. Here's my situation, I got married in January, to who I thought was a terrific guy. We had met through our church and had a whirlwind relationship. He was super good to me and treated me very...

    I didn't want to take over anyone Else's post so here goes my depression story. For about two weeks now I have been feeling a dark cloud over head. After years of squeezing every last penny from the budget I finally got to the pay off. All our debt is paid off and we are in the clear. I have...

    Okay, my fellow frugaliers, I could use some 'lifting up' tonight....do any of you get weary of always having to stick to the strict budget, pre-plan all the meals, watch for/clip/use all the coupons you possibly can, read the sales flyers every week?!

    I know that a lot of you don't even want to think about the word depression (because there's been so much talk about it on other threads), but it's just a question? How long does a recession have to occur before it becomes a depression? What month exactly did the States go into a recession...

    When I was young, my mother used to bake "Depression Chocolate Cake". Mom remembers making it, but not the amounts or the exact ingredients. It was my Grandmas recipe and didn't have any eggs or butter. Instead it used vinegar and baking soda to rise. I think the ingredients were baking soda...
