"Definitely:  talk to a doc.  You need not be like everyone else as you imagine them, but there's no need to live with distress, or something that interferes with a full life."

Growing into your quirks or I got weird.

I am a weird person and my surroundings just don't seem to accept that. I was always pretty much weird, my culture references were always a decade behind. I was a 90s baby obsessed with Star Wars before the prequels. The other kids thought it was a thing I made up. I grew into myself rather well and the weirdness was a moot point for awhile since I was more successful at most social interactions than others.I have gotten to a point where my quirks make it difficult to go a long with society. I…See More

"Actually these days combat boots are getting pretty decent; Vibram has made some gear that, although I was originally issued for work, I now where out and about. Probably not the most fashionable choice, but they are multifunctional. "

Chet Hand replied to Nick Henderson's discussion Why are boots the work footwear? What are some classic quality brands?
"It really depends on what kind of boots you like to wear.  Remember that leather boots rarely feel fantastic right out of the box, they usually have to be worked in over the course of a week or two of hard wearing.  Then they form around…"

"If you have actual work to do, and need to protect your feet while still maintaining some modicum of comfort, Red Wing is the go-to boot. Lightweight day hikers may be more comfortable most of the time, but when something heavy lands on your foot,…"

"i really like rigger boots too. but a lot of sites specifically ban them which sucks. I mostly just wear mine to drive to work and when it snows. "

"Redwing are tried and true work boots. Lifetime warranty on the uppers and they can be re-soled."

"I spend about 14 hours a day in a pair of Georgia Giants, but boots may not be your thing. If you wear shoes for hiking, Merrell makes work shoes with hard toes."

Depression (And Suicide)

This is something we all face in this life.  We get lonely.  We are disappointed.  We fail.  Sometimes others fail us.  What do you do when you are  truly depressed?  What if it goes on a long time?  Ever considered suicide?  It happens all the time.

"It was more of something that I noticed. I'm a lot colder physically. In general, I run a bit hot. Admittedly, it may not have been a "life change", but merely an observation."
