    Anyone who has kids who watch The Suite Life know who I'm talking about when I say, "Yay me!" It's a common reference around here, complete with London's giddy laugh and hand clapping. Most people who have been here for a while know that I suffer from depression. It's often a struggle to do...

    It is so dark here. I don´t remember when I last saw the sun. It has been at least weeks if not months. We have no snow here in the southern Finland at all. This darkness makes me (and everyone else) so tired. When I was a child, we used to go iceskating and skiing in November, now it is a waste...

    Like all of you I am watching the economic news and it doesn't look like things are going to get better anytime soon. Facts be known I believe things are going to get a whole lot worse before they get better. I very much doubt things will ever go back to the way they were in our lifetimes. Some...

    With the economic situation we are in, what steps have you taken to prepare for hard times. Every time I watch the news I get a nagging feeling that I should be doing something. I prepare even in good times, so I am at a loss on what to do.

    Well, me anyway. Winter is hardest for me. Long cold days cooped up in the house. Right now I'm sick, so my disposition isn't very good to begin with. Unlike a lot of you, I'm technically undiagnosed. They don't know whether I'm bipolar or schizophrenic or both. Tentatively they've labeled...

    I'm reading The Worst Hard Time by Timothy Egan. It's about the Dust Bowl. The cause of the Dust Bowl was the tearing up of the prarie grass to plant wheat. Prices for wheat were high, so the more land you tore up and planted, the more money you'd earn. There were "suitcase" farmers. People...

    I know this shows how dumb I really am, but how did it start? I thought it was because the banks failed. Isn't that what's happening now? Please explain where a regular person can understand. :bowing: Gail

    I have read the "how would you prepare" thread and I think a big one on the list is to get out of debt of which I am trying but it sounds to me like we are going into a Depression now which doesn't give me time to get out of debt. It is going to take me at least two or three years to get...

    I suffered with depression for about 9 years. It built up for 3 years, I was on meds for 5 and then the last year I was finally in a place that I could truly admit to myself what was going on. It started before I married my ex husband, got worse, got better, got worse, got better, 3 suicide...

    I have been researching nutritional helps for depression. I have been reading that sugar beet molasses contains a substance called uridine that can have a significant help. Unfortunately, I cannot find sugar beet molasses. Does anyone know where I can purchase this???

    I went with the kids to see the American Girl Doll movie - Kitt Kittredge. The dolls and accompanying books are really for ages 8 and up. The movie had nothing to do with "dolls" just the character the doll represents. So this was the Depression Era girl. My parents, DH's parents era. The...

    Let me preface this by saying I love my kids and I love my husband. I wouldn't change a thing about them. But, I am miserable. I can't get a doctor to look at me to save my life. The soonest I can get an appointment is the 14th of next month. I am in constant pain. I don't want to be knocked...

    My DH has been diagnosed with severe depression three years ago. He has been out of work since. A couple of months ago he tried working and it lasted three days. It seems like nothing is helping, not medication, not therapy. He is like a zombie these days, doesn´t sleep and has lost a lot of...

    Just wanted to check in and see how all of us who suffer with depression are doing. I started back on my antidepressants (effexor xr) last week and am going to be upping the dosage this week. I'm already seeing that I'll never be able to take a break from them again. Life without...

    If you knew that there would definitely be a depression in 6 months to a year, what specific things would you do now to start preparing for it? Would you try to learn any new skills? If so, what ones? If you lived in a city [large or small], how would you prepare? I'd love to hear what all...
