    WorkJaded takes a lot of energy to maintain. Which means i need some alone time.

    I DID NOT GET THAT ALONE TIME THIS WEEK AND I MIGHT SHANK A BITCH.

    I'm all alone, sitting on the floor surrounded by sticker books and markers, singing along to late '90s early '00s songs while eating chili cheese fritos.

    This moment is perfect and deserves recognition.

    Edit: not really sad pandas stuff, though. :x

    Yesterday was beautiful. Almost 70. I was wearing shorts and so happy. Today is cooler and rainy. So foggy I can't see far outside. Supposed to storm tomorrow and get colder again on Friday. Been down all day. Seasonal depression hits me hard. One beautiful day can totally change the way I feel and that was yesterday. So ready for warmer, sunny weather.

    I went out and bought a fitbit to cheer me up and it's helped but not a lot. Retail therapy only fixes my depression briefly

    Does anyone here have experience with getting someone to go to the ER who won't go? My brother is clearly ill, his legs are infected and weeping (pruritis/dermatitis/gangrene/idk) and he desperately needs medical treatment, but he refuses to go to the ER (he doesn't have insurance) or even see a doctor at all. My sis was over at his house earlier pleading with him to go seek medical help but he keeps saying "oh I'll go on Friday my friend will help me" blah blah blah. I have been trying to get him on the county health program so he can get more regular medical care and he won't complete the paperwork. I just feel so helpless.

    holy shit :( Might be obvious, but have you tried being horribly blunt with him, that if this is gangrene or a blood infection it might not matter if he waits? I dealt with this with my dad once and honestly the only thing that finally made him go was me badgering him repeatedly and just not stopping until he finally went to shut me up.

    I wish I had some solid advice, but I can relate. This was a constant struggle when my dad was alive. Even when he was in the hospital towards the end. I remember a nurse running into the waiting room, asking if I could help restrain my father. He had ripped the IV out of his arm, and decided that he was going home.

    Thanks y'all.
    I already told him I don't want him to die, which felt so harsh but after I saw the pics my sis took I didn't know what else to say. I'm hoping so much that after he sleeps on it he will let us take him to the ER in the morning. He's not stupid, I have to think a lot of this is fear of what is really going on w/ his health, fear of the unknown, fear that he's going to have to make some life changes etc. We all here know how that is. I just don't want him to die.

    I'm having baby fever and it's making me sad. I'm too scared to try again even if right now was the right time, which it isn't. I don't know if there ever will be a right time, because I really don't want to come off my meds but I can't risk being pregnant on them. Not to mention I'm poor as fuck and can't afford another child. It just...makes me sad.

    I feel like eventually my disorder is gonna shut everyone out until I have no one left.
    I'm not a monster, but I feel like one a lot of the time.

    I feel like everything is futile. I'm so fucking tired of working 4 hours for $8, never having enough money for my bills, never being able to buy clothes that fit me. I'm always going to be poor, I'm never going to get out of this shitty, moldy, income-based ghetto apartment.

    You guys both are lightyears ahead of people who don't realize they have issues, and aren't trying to better themselves in any way. Lightyears. I know that doesn't fix anything, but I believe in both of you, and everyone else in here, and on at least some level I've felt the way you do and know I will again at some point.
