"Having anxiety and depression is like being scared and tired at the same time. It's the fear of failure, but no urge to be productive. It's wanting friends, but hate socializing. It's wanting to be alone, but not wanting to be lonely. It's feeling everything at once then feeling paralyzingly numb.”

"it‘s hard to stay mad when there‘s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I‘m seeing it all at once, and it‘s too much; my heart fills up like a balloon that‘s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold onto it. And then it flows through me like rain, and I can‘t feel anything but gratitude—for every single moment of my stupid, little life." #burst @tk-421 #americanbeauty

Great day! Backcountry hiking with just the trees. Went off trail after 50 yards where no one had been lately (no shoe prints in the snow). Had soup, 4 cups of coffee and read my favorite book. If I had the means I'd live in the middle of nowhere and not do a gods damn thing. #bfc #bookfitnesschallenge @wanderinglynn

Lost In Heaven | Gary W. Livengood



Got off a plane to the countryside
I drove to the mountain and a hole in the ground
There was crack on the corner and someone dead
And fire coming out of a monkey's head
Don't get lost in heaven
They got locks on the gate
Don't go over the edge
You'll make a big mistake

Now it's your time to look after us?

To pay me and the one I love
With the worldly goods you stashed away
With all the things you took from us

“My kind is your kind“

It amazes me how one (by one I mean me) cannot (or should not) expect that a good day (yesterday) be followed by another good day. Regardless of expectations, I find each day seems a fight to chase distractions in order to elude the pain and anguish that resides in that little gelatinous nerve center. The lonely part. I wish it would choose to not inhale oxygen. Melt, drain... just stop.

Bookwomble 💗 1w
BarbaraJean Just stopped in to respond to your comment from yesterday and say I hope today was another good day. I‘m sorry it wasn‘t. Hope you find distractions that help provide some relief. I suppose “Happy Belated Birthday” doesn‘t exactly fit the occasion, so perhaps I can wish you a “less crappy than it is right now belated birthday”? At least you‘re not reading Dickens. 1w

How to Be Alone: Essays | Jonathan Franzen
post image

Depression presents itself as a realism regarding the rottenness of the world in general & the rottenness of your life in particular. But the realism is merely a mask for depression's actual essence, which is an overwhelming estrangement from humanity. The more afraid you become of engaging with the world; and the less you engage with the world, the more perfidiously happy-faced the rest of humanity seems for continuing to engage with it.

Week one #bfc check in.

I lifted a total of 50k LB's + worth of weights in 4 days of strength training (including all reps and sets) and walked 22 miles in 5 days. I took my pills 4 out of 6 days. I only thought of killing myself 12 times in this week which is good for me (yes I count them).

kspenmoll You did a great job this week! 1w
wanderinglynn Fantastic first week! 🙌 I'm so happy you joined us, George. As to the advice your brother gave you, here's what I say. First, George, I like you just the way you are. 💜 We're all broken and defective in our own individual way. And the world is full of men. Don't be a man. Be human, be you. Because a lot of these so-called men, quite frankly, are making a mess of things. 😉 1w
Clwojick Gabapentis is EXHAUSTING! I was honestly falling asleep at my desk when I had to take them for nerve damage. So I whole heartedly applaud you for being able to get such a great workout in. I would‘ve been sleeping on the couch. 1w
Clwojick @wanderinglynn That right there, is why you are a freaking gem. George, I agree with Lynn 200%. Just be human.💜❤️💙 1w

cathysaid @Trashcanman Surviving. Job is a bit exhausting because it requires so much people-ing but I there‘s little supervision so I can‘t complain. You? Day by day? 5d
Trashcanman @cathysaid what do you do if I may ask? Taking it day by day, hour by hour most times. 4d
cathysaid @Trashcanman I work at a non-profit wholesale electric company (much like an electric co-op) in GA. Admin for a director that has been with the company for 30 yrs, so people are in his office all day long...which means they‘re in my office all day long. 🤨 3d

I feel like a defective model, like I came off the assembly line flat-out fucked and my parents should have taken me back for repairs before the warranty ran out.

BookNAround The warranty for all of us runs out early and not a one of us is anywhere close to perfect. We‘re all messed up in one way or another. The good news is that others love us despite our brokenness. I‘m pretty confident your parents wouldn‘t have returned you even if they had the chance. 😘 2w

The Voice of the Body | Alexander Lowen

It is a grave injustice to insist that one stop crying. One can comfort a person who is crying which enables them to relax and makes further crying unnecessary; but to humiliate is to increase pain, and augment rigidity. We stop people from crying because we cannot stand the sounds and movements of their bodies. It induces similar feelings in ourselves which we dare not express and it evokes a resonance in our own bodies which we resist.

Bklover Cry on. Missed you George!❤️❤️ 2w
Craftylikefox Crying is so important. 💕💕💕 2w
Texreader Wow! Having grown up in a family where we were not allowed to cry, I agree with this wholeheartedly. My daughter used to cry a lot and thought something was wrong. I would tell her to cry, cry, cry. Let it all out! She‘s growing more mature and handling emotions better but by golly crying is a-ok in my book! 💙💙💙 Thanks for posting this! 2w

Trashcanman @Texreader of course. I grew up in the same kind of house. Super hyper masculine 2w
Trashcanman @Texreader I resent it to this day. I would get spanked for crying. Called a girl, a baby. A wimp, a woman. I hate Macho I fucking can't stand it. Hugs 2w
Texreader @Trashcanman I am so sympathetic!! Different story here. My parents were young and unequipped to deal with emotions when my mother suffered a series of horrific deaths in her family. They dealt by not crying-at all. But not so good for their kids. It took a lot to overcome that emotional stunting, but once I grew up and understood it I forgave it. I so wish you could find the same peace. Hugs to you too. 2w
Texreader BTW, we were punished for crying too. When my beloved cat died I was told to suck it up and not cry. It‘s a hard hard childhood. 2w
Texreader I still remember the first time my mom let me cry: I was a junior in high school. A classmate died from a car accident. A junior in high school! Sorry for taking over your post. This is such a hard issue to deal with. 2w
Trashcanman @Texreader you're not taking it over, thank you for being vulnerable. It's nice to talk to someone on a level above the surface, the trite. 2w
Trashcanman @Bklover I hope you are well. I thought you were mad at me. 2w
Texreader @Trashcanman I agree. This topic is so much more relevant than I suspect most people understand. The emotional crippling that can occur. And I wish this were no longer an issue but I fear that what you described happened to you is still prevalent 2w
Trashcanman @Texreader I know it is, especially in certain cultures. Latino culture for one. 2w
Texreader @Trashcanman I have to admit I‘m feeling so sad for you right now. I went through hell overcoming these issues (among other things life threw at me); it‘s been about 25 years since medical care and a brilliant psychiatrist helped me get through it. My heart is very much with you. 2w
Trashcanman @Texreader thank you. It didn't help that my father was an alcoholic growing up. I relate too much to a tree grows in Brooklyn. Life has its way. 2w
Bklover Of course I‘m not mad at you. I haven‘t been on Litsy much. Grace is graduating and we‘ve had shit going on all the time. I‘m in a massive reading slump. I‘m behind on writing letters too. I was worried about you when you were gone. It‘s nice to see you back. Sometimes trying to belong is such an effort. It‘s something I‘ve never been good at. I‘ve been burying myself in Game of Thrones. As far as the topic being discussed here, 2w

With your feet in the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
But there's nothing in it
And you'll ask yourself

Where is my mind?

mcipher Great song! And I want to meet that dog.... 😆 2w
suvata So cute 2w
SaturnDoo @mcipher I want to meet this dog too. I tried to sit on one of those dang things a couple weeks ago when I took my grandson to the park and landed flat on my butt on the ground 🤣😂 this dog is doing better than I did. 2w

mcipher @SaturnDoo Well this dog weighs what, 40 lbs?!?? He‘s got an advantage! 😆😆 2w
SaturnDoo @mcipher 😂😂 true. I still give this dog a 👍👏 cause I had my feet planted firmly on the ground,or so I thought. I'm just glad we were there alone and noone saw me. Or at least I don't think anyone saw. I didn't hear any laughter as it was quite comical I'm sure 😂🤣 2w
tessavi Love the song and totally sang the lyrics (in my head, since I'm at work 😅) 2w

The Catcher in the Rye | Jerome Salinger

You're not the first person who was ever confused & frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You're by no means alone on that score, Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You'll learn from them. Just as someday, someone will learn something from you. It's a beautiful reciprocal arrangement & it isn't education. It's history. It's poetry.

Others imply that they know what it is like to be depressed because they have gone through a divorce, lost a job. These experiences carry with them feelings. Depression is flat, hollow, and unendurable. It is tiresome. People can't be around you when you are depressed. They might even try, but you know & they know that you are tedious you are irritable & paranoid & humorless & lifeless & critical & demanding & no reassurance is ever enough.

cathysaid Get outta my head!!! This is one of the 50 books on the Book Riot list about which I just posted. Also, I‘m just so damn glad to see you again, George. 3w

cathysaid @Trashcanman Many days are good while on a few, I want to throat punch humanity. So...status quo. 🤟 3w
Trashcanman @cathysaid I would prefer donkey punch humanity. Or fill go biblical and drown the God damn world for a(I'm Agnostic and don't believe in that holy book) 2nd time! But you know, with a little more feeling. Oh and those fucking Titanic band guys playing music while it happens. 3w

Trashcanman @CouronneDhiver I want to lay on that lawn and make animal shapes from the clouds. And let my skin get all itchy and drink water from the hose. And do shitty cartwheels. 3w

Uh, I feel that this has given me the most incredible and wonderful thing
that I have ever been given, and also, the worst. It's a mixed bag. I have been taken to the, absolutely, to the depths of extreme terror by this.
But I've also seen so much beauty.

Megabooks I‘m glad it‘s helpful. I have problems reading books about my diagnosis, but find it helpful to read books from authors with different ones. People are so diverse in what works for them. Sending you strength! 3w

It's said there are four layers of consciousness. Store consciousness, root consciousness, a most luminous mind (all namesfor the third layer). It can never be evaded. It is the root of all that ails me. Time to dam the bhavanga.

julesG We are well. Thanks for asking. It's good to see you are back. Are you doing okay? Shall I send you the lottery numbers on Wednesday? 😁 3w
TrishB If you‘re in central London you definitely don‘t need a car, tube and buses are plentiful. Are you visiting? 3w
Trashcanman @TrishB I will be next April. I plan on visiting Paris too. Total trip will be 11 days. Kids are excited. I am too. 3w
TrishB That sounds cool, I love London and Paris. Both beautiful cities with lots to do. If you need recommendations nearer the time just shout! 3w
Trashcanman @julesG Thank you, yes winning lotto would help. I'm OK mostly. Still fighting. Losing some days winning others. It's day by day. I wish I was normal. 3w
julesG You won't need a car for central London. Get a London visitor pass, it covers entrance fees for a lot of places (The Tower, comes to mind) and you can travel on public transport. Paris must be similar. Friends of mine were there two weeks ago, went by train, they have three children. 3w
julesG PS: I wish I was normal, too. But, normal is boring and overrated. However, I know what you mean. 😘 3w

Itchyfeetreader @Trashcanman awesome to see you back and to see you are planning a visit next year. Avoid a car - central London is very walkable.
