JUST BE CAREFUL! I added 5 small clowns with my single male who turned female and she killed all them. Apparently it wasnt time. Theres a certain time you can add another clown so they can pair up. I didnt know this up until after they all died and asked my LFS whats the deal.
It may be too late.

So many comments to be made, so little time.
As most of you know, I've not been on here much the last 1.5 weeks. Without getting into much detail I will say depression sucks.

I think I decided against the big tattoo. I might do it with henna for fun.
Who's Henna and would she be up for something like that with pictures? :p

@crusso1993 Yes, depression does. I struggle a lot lately. I'm learning a new type (to me) of dance to help with mine.
While I would normally go crazy with the "dance" thing I will refrain.

Seriously, though, any port in a storm is life saving. Please let us know how the new dance works for you.

I consider all of us family. I never want us to battle inner demons. The dance I'm learning is exotic and very mentally focused on hips and feet. It helps with mindful thinking.

I have been going to therapy and the focus has been on mindful thinking. Exotic Dance sounds like more fun though. I started yoga, but then focused on walking/joggling/dancing. That is what I do...”joggle”. I am training to hike in TN this summer. Also I am going to see a trauma specialist because PTSD has been playing a part in my mental health after that dang brain surgery.
To all of us struggling with mental wellness issues. The struggle is real, and talking to a professional can improve your mental health by teaching you new skills. Improve your mental toolbox. If you have heart problems you see a cardiologist right? If your roof needs repair beyond your DIY skills you, hire a roofer, you don't let rain keep flooding your house, right? Some things need a little more than DIY. DIY if you can, and talk to a professional if you can.
Love you all and want to see us all living our best life. Hugs and kisses.

I am no stranger to depression. I laugh through it most of the time because I have always been the jolly fat guy everyone likes to have at parties. No one who doesn't have PTSD or depression can understand.

I had PTSD from abuse before the stroke. It's now different. I haven't told anyone but it scares me to death almost every time I sneeze, cough, have a headache, etc. I am afraid I am having another one. It was horrifying the first go round. I think another would do me in. Everyone is like "Oh, you look great" or "Wow you completely recovered from a stoke so fast!" Little do they know.

I am glad you all are here. I really appreciate you guys.

So it's official, the 24th will be the last day at the only job I've had as an adult. I have been here for 17 years and I will be leaving soon, good move but tough pill to swallow.

Sorry to hear about your struggle. I would lend you my sister but then who would counsel me for free? She is a nurse and family therapist. It is a great idea to find someone who can help you through this. Please do! We want you around long enough to hang out in the nursing home and harass the staff with us!;)

I felt that way when I stopped being a cop.
