Depression/Anxiety Self-care

Posted on October 28, 2015 at 11:30pm 1 Comment

Depression happens to more of us than I think we realize. There is no shame in it. There are things you can do about it. Remember that it skews your perspective of everything - and not being able to trust your perceptions of things doesn't help. Call your doctor, or a hotline if you need to and go down this list from time to time.

I cannot claim to authorship of this list, but I've had versions on my computer for the better part of a decade, and it's been quite helpful at…

Sorry about that.  I couldn't help myself because he is a douche.  Won't happen again!

Roma-rights is ethnic focused rather than regaining rights to a traditionally migratory/transient lifestyle in the modern world?

I have to ask what exactly, say in bullet points, would "roma-rights" include?

Te aves Baxtalo, I was discussing the use of Gypsy as a Slur and though raised where it was I fear I've become desensitized to it as the infantry turned it to a nickname. How do you feel about it in your life?

Thank you! ^^ though im still rather on the fence of atheism or believing in something. So agnostic might be the way i go. In either case. Thank you an i shall look around, as this is MUCH better then facebook, as this has more a purprose.

I think so too. Thank you for the welcome.

Personal and Political Advice from Rome.

His Holiness, Pope Francis, has a warning sign posted outside his office door.It begins "VIETATO LAMENTARSI"In English, "WHINERS PROHIBITED."The sign ends with “To get the best out of yourself, concentrate on your potential and not on your limitations. Stop complaining and take steps to improve your life.” The same advice, in a far, far blunter form, is found in a book."Shut Up, Stop Whining, and Get A Life: A Kick Butt Approach to a Better Life."--Larry Winget, 2004See More
