Post while you are depressed thread

Postby Ernest on Sun Dec 16, 2007 1:42 am

I figure since the drunk one is useful, I'd birth a thread for when you're down in the dumps.

As we all know, the PRF has outstanding people ready to comfort and give aide.

I'll go first. I'll keep it brief. You ever notice when you come across your ex, and you think you're past it, certain things come up out of nowhere?

I'm on good terms with my ex, but that's because we never talk.

I ran into an old female friend today who broke my heart a couple years back. We'd sit in my room and we'd listen to records, some of them which I hold very close to me. She liked those ones a lot especially. I wanted things to go further but she didn't feel the same as I did.

So I'm drinking some Great Lakes, and wishing I could have her sitting there on my bed as we listen to records, and talk about stuff.

It either takes years and/or both of you having falling in love again (Edit: with someone else). Only then will there be peace. Until then, McGarvey has a sound plan.

Wow, sounds exactly like the girl I'm trying to get out of my head. Except it's been two months, not two years. And today was her birthday. I'm drinking Half Acre.

I anticipate visiting this thread quite a bit.

I have had a really trying few weeks.

The married life is on the verge of being in shambles, marriage is hard when you are a fucking goof like I am and married to a wild untamable woman like I am. The new job is weird, I'm feeling really out of place in an office environment and dealing with the weird politics involved is just not my idea of a good time. There's a few bad apples in the office who I have to watch out for or else I'd be set up to fail and that sucks.
The shitty work schedule is really cutting into the band time, I feel like we are not getting anything done. We went from playing literally all day every day to twice a week.
My brand new digital 8 track is broken.
Oh and I'm broke and have a mountain of bills. Collections people calling every day.
Plus my tooth is killing me and I don't have insurance yet.

I'm really beaten down.

What keeps me from being depressed is knowing that I'm not the only jerkoff out there with problems. I get frustrated and pissed off, but I always try to keep my head on strait and pull myself out of whatever issue I'm having. Over the years, I've found that I'm the most calm when terrible things happen.

The ex brought me out to Minneapolis to go back to school, than ditched me six months from graduation and moved to my hometown. I hate my job but can't afford to lose it because of student loan debt, and I want to hate fuck my boss, so clocking in is a total mindfuck every morning. Failing to find a decent paying job back home. All my old friends (including the guys I don't even like anymore) are bugging me about moving back, which, you know, was pressure enough without my family on me all the time. No heat in the house, no food in the house, rent is constantly two weeks late for the house. Old man got laid off and the UAW did their little "sorry we can't help you" pussy-dance. I live with my current (ex)girlfriend who is so much of a shut-in that she rarely ever leaves the bedroom, and we're both so financially fucked that we can't afford to live without each other. Was happy to get my new credit card only because I could put groceries on it, but I get buyer's remorse because it's supposed to be for a moving van goddamnit. Ran out of coffee this morning.
On the plus side, I've pretty much kicked alcoholism. (After rough calculations, I found I was drinking 88 beers per week. I'm now down to a twelve pack on the weekends.) My roommates and I found a fourth roomie to lighten the rent load. There's a new (rough version) of a song on my band's MSpac (link in sig). I found a "No Parking, Violators Will Be Towed" sign in the alley that actually compliments the decor in the living room, even if it is a little dorm-ish. Oh, and I spent the morning watching porn.

I've been feeling really at peace lately, more comfortable in my own skin than I've been for quite some time. Maybe it's the medication kicking in, maybe it's the sensation of being in a well-heated room while it snows and snows outside...I dunno.

But for what it's worth, I've come to the conclusion that getting hung up on someone is a tremendous waste of time, to the extent that I wont even let it happen anymore if I have any say in the matter. I'm just sick of it, putting my life in the hands of some girl who doesn't even know what to do with it. It's really quite childish. As if I could only be a happy with a some girl there to bolster me, as if I haven't already faced enough super-depressing shit on my own to know that I can survive just about anything without having someone by my side.

I suppose I'm just learning not to expect much from people. Perhaps someday I'll be so enlightened as to harbor no expectations at all.

That would be nice.

I managed to get depressed about my grades for this quarter, and they're not even bad - in fact, they're stellar. That I managed to get depressed about it makes me feel like a fraud and a jackass - which only makes me more depressed. A vicious cycle!

Oh crap, don't get me started. Too late.

I've got my second funeral in a month on wednesday. No idea how to behave.

I've been doing this job for 3 months as a temp but they're hiring people right now and I can't apply because it's (for now) internal applications only. I probably wouldn't get it anyway. And today and tomorrow both the people I work with are off so I'm running this department on my own, for half of their salary I might add, and I know I'm gonna screw everything up.

The girl I've come to speak to more than any of my other friends has fallen out with me. I just wanted us to hang out together but I guess I said it wrong or something.

A girl in the next office was flirting with me at the christmas party. This almost never happens. I handled it wrong (though I don't know how) and now she won't even look me in the eye. I hate this.

No one but me has been inside my home in months. I've all but stopped using my living room.

And debt collectors are getting more threatening as the weeks go by. And the gas will be cut off soon. And I can't afford to get people decent Christmas presents.


Ah man, fuck this thread. I'll be back every 5 minutes.

Jesus folks it's Christmas!

Just reading this lot has put me on a downer.

For my part I've been through something of a down patch recently but for reasons I'm not going to go into here.

With regards ex's one of mine recently got back in touch with me after a few years of no contact (of her, perfectly understandable, choosing).

I had an emotional moment - I won't lie - but generally it was one of positivity. It was really good to hear from her.
How she was doing and her family and friends all that.
Her getting in touch could have marked some kind of resurgence of feeling she was having after some broken down relationship but this, thankfully, turned out not to be the case.
Time had just healed the wounds she'd incurred and she wanted to know how I was doing.

Though it was almost certainly wise for us not to be in touch for a few years it was (is) ultimately just really good to be back in contact with her.
