  1. Does that include the MRI Effexor (venlafaxane)? I’ve battled treatment-resistant Double Depression for nearly 40 years and Effexor was the only thing that ever really laid a glove on it for most of that time until it finally wore itself out on me just this last year. You might speak to your pdoc about a trial of low-dose Adderall as an adjunct to your antidepressant. You might also ask whether off-label prescription of buproprion is a possibility - right now, the combination of that and Adderall is what’s keeping my head above water. Together, they’re probably acting on norepinephrine an
  2. Anhedonia is not considered a type of depression, but rather a symptom of depression. Types of deep-seated depression are usually diagnosed as Major Depressive Disorder (Unipolar) or Bipolar Depression, Dysthymia (chronic depression). There are also types based on external or non-mental physical factors, such as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Peripartum/Postpartum Depression, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) and general Situational Depression. Psychotic Depression is also a type, based on different causes. Refractive, or Treatment-Resistant, Depression is a description, but I believ
  3. Not only did you not answer the question, you didn't ask one. Rejected. Try again. (But in reply to the above, I would just say: Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belong the Kingdom if God. )
  4. Neither. In our neck of the woods, we have RC Cola, which is better than either of them. But I gave up soda years ago, and was really only a cream soda drinker anyway, so my opinion in this case is useless. How many beans make five?
  5. This just in re: corn flakes: https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/21/us/cbp-seizes-cocaine-laced-corn-flakes-trnd/index.html It would appear corn flakes can dangerously stimulating in quite a different way. Which makes you think twice about Tony the Tiger® with his red bib on and his thumb up declaring, "They're gr-r-r-reat!" Note, however, that Tony is himself scarce online these days, having been disappeared from his Twitter account by Kellogg, likely on account of the ceaseless barrage of unwanted propositions by sex-crazed furries: https://www.huffpost.com/entry/tony-tiger
  6. The one obvious, glaring mistake that jumps right out is that you chose to defile the forum with a Rick Astley video. This is wrong. I’m not certain exactly how it relates to the occasional difficulty you experience in getting videos to display properly, but given the nature of the offense, I suspect karma may be involved.
  7. In that order? As an American I have no experience of Marmite, though I understand that one of its marketing slogans was “Love It Or Hate It.” The description does not sound appetizing, therefore it is on my bucket list of things to try when I visit the UK sometime within the next 2-3 years, along with haggis. Perhaps spread over haggis, to concentrate the experience. Assuming that the Kingdom is still United at that point. I concur about the quokkas. If they weren’t so scarce, Australia could easily weaponize them - release a number of them among an opposing army and the enemy woul
  8. In my case, there was evidently some concern about something pulling on something that oughtn't be pulled upon. I wasn't really consulted as to my opinion on the matter at the time. Grownups knew best, apparently. Something along the lines of "This is for your own good." This is in fact absolutely true - until the stitches come out. After that the effect wears off completely. I have never observed corn flakes to have any effect whatsoever, aside from the fact the corn flakes are themselves not particularly titillating even when sugar-frosted.
  9. “At least the damage is irreversible” is not a persuasive argument here. And no way am I letting anyone take a scalpel to my favorite chicken nuggets. Not for some religious reason. (Actually, the statement “it stays done” need not necessarily be true. There are techniques, both surgical and non-surgical, to restore a foreskin.) [After this I begin to wax a bit philosophical to call it a Random Thought, so feel free to TL;DR] Really, though, and not to take this in a way-too-serious direction, but I’m surprised to see you defending the practice, which under modern scrutiny h
  10. Oh, don’t get me started on the Deity’s blunder with human teeth...
  11. *tsk* I’m disappointed in both of you. “Your ‘tip snipped’?” In a female context we would refer to it as ‘genital mutilation’ and be quite justifiably outraged. I was not an adult when I had my ‘tip snipped’, but I was in the fourth grade and very much aware of what was being done to me. That there evidently was a legitimately medical reason for it (?) didn’t matter - it hurt like billy-oh and wasn’t half humiliating. Did I mention they did it on Thanksgiving Day? It seems important to mention that, just for the black irony. Flue, if you’re intact, remember that God made you that
  12. The ‘category’ requirement has likely become necessary because of some alteration in the way the database backend organizes and manages blog entries. Although this isn’t a WordPress-based site, you see a similar structural regime implemented there. The good thing is that the categories you use should be fully customizable as anything you want them to be. Unless I’m mistaken, you’re free to file your blog posts under the category ‘MyBlogPosts’, or ‘OddballNotions’, or ‘Kiwi Fruit’, or, basically anything (though we would prefer that you not use any occult words that might inadvertently conjure
  13. In...nativity...scenes. I just - I’m trying to comprehend the human state of mind that would generate that as an original concept, and I’m coming up blank. Don’t misunderstand the nature of the distress I indicated above - it’s purely an expression of aesthetic dismay, and a conceited one at that. I apologize for casting aspersions on your personal taste. If I find Monty Python hilarious but disdain Benny Hill as lowbrow and vulgar, that says everything about me and nothing about someone who thinks Benny Hill is funny. (I have no idea of your opinion either way.) If these
  14. Your statement above, if I read it aright, seems to indicate that one of these odious effigies is actually present in your home. This distresses me on multiple levels. First, it distresses me that our nation has fallen so low that our leader was reviled to that extent abroad. Second, it distresses me that someone in Spain devoted the time, creative energy, and resources to manufacture that object. Third, and perhaps most keenly distressing, is that you saw it and then actually spent your actual money to purchase it. Quite aside from the dubious reflection this casts upon your aesthetic sensibi
  15. Before I retired, I had a regular 8 to 4:30 job with a half-hour lunch break expected. As a rule, I would be at my desk for 12 to 14 hours on average, and always ate lunch at my desk while I worked. There was seldom time not to be working on some aspect of something because out agency had been instructed to “do more with less” until we were trying to “do anything from nothing”. There were times when I would end up getting caught up in Internet eddies (like here) but never to the extent of watching cat videos on YouTube - there just wasn’t time. So, yeah, 8 at least. It nearly killed me,
