Wisdom Teeth Out!
I was talking with alice this morning about Wisdom Teeth.
I wanted to show you mine because I know that in the developed countries the dentists won't give you a chance to keep yours.
Anyways, here I present pain, disfigured smile and decay. Enjoy!
PS (I think they are cute, and Mr good guy would make for a very handsome pendant someday!)
Am I a depressive?
So for the past few months now ive literally felt more worthless than a grain of sand on the beach. All my "friends" have been acting like total dicks (not just to me but between the whole group) its like were not even real friends (im 17 and in school btw) . Ive got nothing going for me, bad marks at school, shit at sports and even my gaming hobby is nothing but a bottomless pit of depression. My parents got divorced quite a while back but im not too sure that has anything to do with it and overall i just feel like life is nothing but a endless daily cycle and i cant get out of it.
Initially i thought this was just a stage or part of my age or something but its been going on for such a long time now im not so sure. I come from a good family and i go to a good school, my parents are supportive and i really dont have a lot to complain about but still i feel this pit of emptiness inside of me. My mom was diagnosed with clinical depression but im not sure if that couldve been passed on to me.
So me and my "friends" spend our weekends getting drunk at one of their houses and to them its for fun but im getting worried that to me its not just for fun. I dont really actually know how to describe what im going through, let me put it like this. Wake up,go to school,go home,have "fun" gaming,sleep,wake up....... blada blada bla and when it gets to the weekend go to a friends house,get drunk,wake up,go home, have "fun" gaming. Just to clarify im not suicidal and I never will be so for gods sake please dont tell me to call a helpline or something.
Ok so let me not waste anymore of your time, am I depressive? being a attention seeking whore? or am I just going through a stage. please guys i just want somebody to help me to stop feeling like this and i know it sounds cliche and dumb but to me its quite serious and worrying
The days ahead
Apart from stressors recently and a new medicine (Seroquel for sleep), my tdoc has told me I do fine with my medication (Abilify) and might down it after the stressors are out of the way. She also has focused alot on routines and daily activities. I don't do much everyday apart from 2 times (4 hours) a week with my support person.
In a while I'll start *working* at this antique store 10 minutes out of town. It's not a real job, it is more of an activity.
I've also moved into my own apartment (owned by the "commune" I live in). It feels good to have my own place. I'm just waiting on different bills I have to pay soon. There will be health care people who will come and help me organize my weekly activites, and help with some things but I feel okay enough to maybe do them on my own, at the moment.
Life's "stable" at the moment, it's going okay.
I'm an athiest. Convince me otherwise and it would be greatly appreciated
Look, I'm an atheist. All organized (and unorganized) religion seems absurd to me, for a multitude of reasons. It seems to me that if everyone was raised by scientifically-literate parents, and not told about religion
until critical thinking skills were fully developed (twenty-one?), that religion would disappear from this world. However, I see it's value in comforting people. I would greatly appreciate that comfort. So do me a favor
and convince me!
