Remember when she was vyying for the role of Catwoman in Burton’s sequel?
Odi—Let;s have an acid party.
I think I’m already there naturally. I just reached to put a pair of glasses on top of the glasses I’m already wearing…
That Bowie picture with Elizabeth Taylor?
He looks like a skeleton though. Death and the maiden…
During his cocaine binge around that time (He’s in his The Thin White Duke phase) he weighed about ninety pounds.
My brother’s on antidepressants. He’s living with my mother and she says there was like a string of months where he would barely get up out of his bed for basic hygiene.
Psychiatrists prescribe them first because they have incentives from the insurance companies to (Cheaper to just hand someone some pills than to do long term therapy). But what they don’t tell you is that when you flood the brain artificially with serotonin, your brain starts producing less of its own serotonin, which can lead to some very dangerous situations.
Jirin severe depression does something to your brain that needs to be treated with medicine. Therapy alone is not enough. However, once your brain gets back to normal — assuming your chemicals aren’t off and you need anti-depressants, period — you can get weaned off them.
I wish people would stop thinking that depression is some sort of period in their life that they can overcome by thinking positive or some shit. It’s a chemical imbalance, and should be treated medicinally when appropriate as any other affliction would be.
Acting like “it’s all in your head” is a big part of the reason that mental illness, whether mild or severe, is stigmatized. Not to mention untreated.
ha, death and the maiden indeed. that’s a funny pic.
I take Anti-Depressants and let me tell you if I go off them I change. I won’t take care of basic hygiene in such a state either Jirin.
Keep on them, Ben. If they work for you, then that is good.
Nice selection, J, as usual. :)
I take them for OCD as well, although that has gotten better from simply learning to deal with it.
It did cause me a great deal of stress though, and I’m glad I’m past the hump.
These are things that no one should be ashamed of taking medicine for. Really.
Kudos that you have found something that works for you and allows you to have a better life. :)
I’m not ashamed for taking them because they really do make my life better. I’ve done it all my life and thankfully the stigma isn’t as bad as it used to be.
I won’t go crazy if I go off my medication but I will become more agitated and more likely to fall into a depressive state.
