"For me, fill-in-the-blank Anonymous was the first step, and a worthy one.  There (at least in CoDA, ACA, and the like -- I'd think AA, NA, &c., are more focused on the substance), you can talk about anything, get it out there, w/o…"

"Severe depression and discouragement, been there. Spent most of my life there, and I still visit more often than I would like. When your "bucket list" turns into a "fuck it list", I know the feeling. You have owned your feelings,…"

"When thoughts sort of like that dominated my life (not "I am not a man" but "life is pointless, I can't win, I will always be alone" -- close enough), I didn't think these things because I wanted sympathy, compliments,…"

"Don't worry Steven. Just because you live on the street does not necessarily mean you are broke or a virgin. Barry Badrinath lived on the street and he wasn't either of those. You could follow in his footsteps. "

"Steven, I've felt that way myself at different times, and I suppose we all have.  You have to understand that growth under pressure builds character and becomes a part of who you are.  The latest challenge to overcome (for me) was the…"

Jack Bauer replied to Steven Carpenter's discussion Accepting defeat
"Quit wallowing.  Its unbecoming. I agree with Chuck.  You're fishing for compliments.  You give literally no information about your problems, so there's no advice to give.  If you say you're not good enough, who…"
