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? 

At 6:18pm on July 14, 2014, Karl Helweg said…

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

John wont approve my comments there, so I had to tell you here. 

That was hilarious. Whether it was intended to be or not.

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.
