My mental health really could do without the heat and humidity.

Yes, I'm depressed. Been this way for a good while now. Even affecting my job to the point I'm about to lose it. One weird thing... lunch time depression. Almost every day I get depressed around lunch time. Anyone ever get that? I'm not suicidal, I want to live... just don't know how. A bit of a loner, and a gamer nerd. Some say I spend too much time in a virtual world. I say I don't spend enough, lol. I even started to get dizzy spells, and bad vertigo.

My mind is also affected by the heat and temp, and humidity.  I could possibly tolerate dry heat, but with the constant humidity I just want everyone to leave me alone.

A few years ago there was a book called, "The Noon Day Demon" or something very close to that. I believe it was a book about depression.

I'm not sure if this is what you mean...but I have a hard time on my lunch hour at work almost everyday. I leave for lunch and nothing sounds good to eat. (I have a hard time eating when I am depressed.) I don't know where to go. Sometimes I will just park my car in a parking lot and cry or nap. I start questioning what "normal" people do on their lunch and I feel like I don't know how to live properly if that makes sense. Welcome to CB!

Been feeling......stressed. Depression often comes to me as an inability to cope with anything. Everything feels overwhelming. It's too much. I can't do any of it. Even the simplest things are so hard. But at the same time I'm restless and bored but I can't go anywhere or do anything because my anxiety is crippling and my IBS is debilitating. I haven't been this low in a while.

taramisue ... yes, it does make sense.  This doesn't happen to me at lunch (I tend to graze), but I can relate to not knowing how to live properly. 

For example, I don't know what a 43 year-old does ... like how to behave ... I mean, how does a 43 year-old fit in to life?  For others to look and talk to me, I could be a much younger age than I seem to be.  It is because it is all I know.

I don’t always act my age because I don’t know how to in some respects.  And sometimes my reactions to things may reflect a younger person because that is all I know.  It is really hard to fit in because as everyone gets older, I don’t seem to.  And not being really my true age (not knowing how to be my real age) makes me gradually stick out from the crowd.

(sorry for the different font ... I copied and pasted from something else I'd written awhile back).

I'm sorry you're feeling like this.  I can relate to the IBS being debilitating.  I hope that clears up soon.

I feel like I will never feel like an adult. I grew up very sheltered so I thought when you became an adult you just had money and everything would be good. Then growing up I thought once you became older that you wouldn't struggle. Like adults had it all figured out. I am 35. I still feel like a kid a lot of the time. I look around at other adults and think I will never have it together like they do. I wonder what people think when they look at me...if they think I have it all together. I've been told by someone close to me that even though they know I am a mess inside on the outside it looks like I have my shit together. I guess because I have a career and my own home with my son.

I understand what you mean about you wrote. 

When I was young, life seemed simple and it was just that way, and it happened to everyone ... you go to school, become an adult, get a job, get a house, have kids, have money, etc.

Thank you. I can't see it happening. My last specialist told me there was nothing can be done for me (that was inspiring). It's steadily gotten worse as I've got older. I could handle it if it weren't for the constant and unrelenting pain. I refuse to give up though. Something out there will help. I'm sorry you too know what it's like.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I have it too. 

Oh, I looked it up really quickly, that sounds horrible, is it chronic or just happens occasionally?

Depends on the person and the subtype (C or D) C is predominantly constipation, D is predominantly um, the runs. I have C, and I also eat foods that make it worse, so mine is chronic

Have you tried dicyclomine (bentyl)?  I have IBS and it helps when the diarrhea hits.  Calms the spasms down in my intestines.

Chronic, switches from diarrhea to constipation whenever it feels like it.  I started out with IBS-C (constipation) and am now IBS-D (diarrhea).

I've never heard of having IBS occasionally happening.
