So the new medicine was not working and I have been avoiding computers in general.

Please Schweppes!
I first spied Schweppes Agrum in a small French market. It was a warm day and I was thirsty. Did I want my old stand by Coke Zero? No. I saw this in the store and said, “I will try that.” That is when my two week obsession b...

I am going to #Blogher14  in two weeks. Here is how I will survive. 
I am going to my 4th Blogger in two weeks. Even after 4 years, it is overwhelming. In situations where I know no one, I tend to revert to my introverted side and being around hundreds of women and some men that I have never m...

A better evening then day with a long walk with Bailey. 
The first thing I did when I got home from work yesterday was put on the exercise clothes and put Bailey in his harness and get out there. I put the music on high and walked.  There is a huge field near my house th...

I spent 10 years of my life dedicated to this show. Yet, I can not remember half of the characters listed here. I may have to go through the humungous disappointment again.... Jack would have way way way up on the annoying list in my list for sure.

This year marking the 10th anniversary of the premiere of the television show Lost, and disappearing airplanes being quite (tragically) at the forefront of the international consciousness, and a Lost cast reunion this week burdening us all with the knowledge that Walt "MY BOY" Dawson is now a fully hot adult human man and therefore all of us are literally one million years old, it seemed like an ideal time to revisit all the ups and downs of J.J...

I never watched an episode. I am truly annoyed by the commercial TV format.
The DVR helps but not enough for me to want to watch this show.

I wish it did not take a suicide of a celebrity to get people to talk. 
Why does it take a celebrity suicide to bring attention to mental health and suicide? Why does it take this to have people turn their attention to mental health?  I distresses me a little when this happens. It is sad. It ma...

I don't mean to sound flippant but the answer to your first question is simple.

"Why does it take a celebrity suicide to bring attention to mental health and suicide?"
1. Because a lot of people know them so they have a common ground (the celebrity) to discuss it.
2. The celebrity is not someone you personally know so there is very little chance that you will offend someone by discussing his depression.
3. In Robin Williams' case, few people knew that he struggled with depression.  Not many people knew that he struggled with drug addiction either. Most people saw him as a hyperactive "always happy" comedian.
So to see an "on the surface" successful person take his life is a shock.

Mental health issues and suicide in the general population are often taboo topics. I don't agree with that sentiment but it is true. It's weird that we can talk about a family member's physical illness (cancer, diabetes, stroke, etc.) but a mental illness cannot be discussed with as much openness.  

Very few people are willing to talk about it even though many families and friends are affected by it. It is sad but true.

Also sad but true is the fact that people who do not suffer from depression struggle to understand it. They think that sufferers should just "snap out of it".

Fortunately, I do not suffer from depression but I know enough people who do that I try my best to understand and support them.

What a year it has been. 
I had my medication appointment this week. It went OK. I was hoping for more a change like changing my two medications but she just added 10 milligrams on to my Prozac prescription. We shall see how it works.  I see her in a ...

A little revelation. Hopefully help with some Topamax side effects. 
Where to begin. Even with this blog, I still hold things back. I had a little breakdown with the guy the other day. It started when I talked about how dopey I have been feeling since the Topamax, that I have been taking f...

I have been blogging for years and am at a crossroads unsure of where to go from here. 
Today is one of those days.  I got a nice "you do not fit in" letter from my blog and rejection from other sources in my life. That "good enough" line was crossed. I always teeter on the high and low self esteem line but la...
