Evil S I yes to find a shore,
A beast that doesn't quiver anymore,
Where we can crush some plants to paint my walls,
And I won't try to fight in the weekend wars
Was I? I was to lazy to bathe
Or paint or write or try to make a change

Trashcanman @readordierachel You are officially bad ass. Yes that is my favorite Wes Anderson film followed by the Gran Budapest Hotel 3d

At Los Angeles comic con and shit I'm tired. I saw a bunch of cool panels, the office, Steven Universe, Sponge Bob, and Rhett and Link. The one about the Joker and mental illness made me depressed, I don't think I can watch the Joker movie. Just the trailer made me feel unwell still had fun with the family though and got a shit ton of steps in #bfcr4 @AprilMae @guinsgirlreads @ChasingOm

Chrissyreadit Nice! I liked that Con- I loved the food trucks outside with vegan options 😆😆😆Glad you had fun with your family! 4d
DaveGreen7777 As someone who suffers from depression myself, I personally recommend you not see the Joker movie. I saw it last weekend and was in a major funk afterwards. ☹️ It‘s very well made and Joaquin is phenomenal, but the whole movie is so bleak and unpleasant with so little bright spots, it can really affect your mood! 4d
LauraJ Just dealing with the crowds constitutes at least three days worth of exercise! 4d

Trashcanman @Chrissyreadit Thank you the food was great. 4d
Trashcanman @DaveGreen7777 Yes I suffer for chronic depression, bipolar disorder and have almost (it's getting better) daily ideation. Just the trailer made me very depressed. When he says all he had is negative thoughts it resonated deeply. Thank you for your advice , I appreciate it. If three minutes affected me that much the movie could do more harm than good. Don't want to ruin my upswing. Thanks for being open and honest. It's rare in people. 4d
DaveGreen7777 @Trashcanman Glad I could help! 👍 That line about negative thoughts got to me, too, as did many other lines in the movie. I get why some people liked it, but it was just too much for me! 4d
LibrarianRyan I loved that movie, but beg you not to see it. It‘s not a superhero/villain movie. It‘s about a man in deep psychosis that is spiraling down as life continues to crap on him. Phoenix did an excellent job and deserves every award he gets nominated for. However for much of this movie I saw my brother-in-law who has schitzo-affective with Rage disorder. He wouldn‘t see himself in this movie but his brothers did. 4d
ChasingOm Yeah, I‘m staying away from this one as well. 4d
batsy I agree with the others—would advise against watching it because I think it can be a real trigger. 4d

The warmth of your love
Is like the warmth of the sun
And this will be our year
Took a long time to come

Don't let go of my hand
Now darkness has gone
And this will be our year
Took a long time to come

And I won't forget
The way you held me up when I was down
And I won't forget the way you said,
"Darling I love you"
You gave me faith to go on

Now we're there and we've only just begun
This will be our year
Took a long time to come

#happyoctober #betterlivingthroughchemistry

I'm on more psychotropic drugs than ever but fuck if I care these past few weeks have been pleasurable. When you have clarity of thought, when you can focus on the sound of birds or the wind blowing through the trees or the sound of every day life without your own voice telling yourself to kill yourself dozens of times a day I'll chalk it up as a win. I feel like I'm on vacation from myself.

This literally had me sobbing today. There's so much shame and guilt when you have a mental illness. By far the biggest is not how it affects me but how it affects the ones I love (Mia is my daughter). Feeling better than I have in years and hopeful that I can sustain it. I still get down often but not being suicidal on a daily basis brings a clarity that can't be explained unless you've gone or are going though it. Love to you all.

tournevis Love you to. 3w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa It‘s the little things that we take so for granted when we are feeling well, that we miss the most when we aren‘t. Take each day as it comes, and if you feel good enough to get out and about, seize the chance when you can get it. Good luck, as always. 3w

The only sadnesses that are dangerous and unhealthy are the ones that we carry around in public in order to drown them out with the noise; like diseases that are treated superficially and foolishly, they just withdraw and after a short interval break out again all the more terribly; and gather inside us and are life, are life that is unlived, rejected, lost, life that we can die of.

Man I feel I've wasted the day, I was prescribed a new medication, and have slept for 15 hours since 12:01 today. Taking 10mg of Zyprexa stopped taking the Abilify, Lithium increased from 900mg to 1200mg. Still on gabapentin 900mg, Prestiq 200mg and Valproic acid 100mg . All this to say I feel I've wasted the day. I could have been reading. This defect is wearing me down. I am fighting but I'm losing. I want my life back.

Pieces of My Path | Thomas Riddell

When the world has turned
Paralyzed and wrong
Cold blooded claws
Never offered anything at all
Past the point of love
Shattered and untied
Waiting to pick up the pieces
That make it all alright

But pieces of what?
Doesn't matter any more

Centique Hi George. That‘s a great poem. Arohanui from New Zealand 💕 2mo
Trashcanman Hello Paula, greetings from Los Angeles. I hope you and yours are all well. Thank you for your kindness. 2mo

Parabolis | Eddie Han

So familiar and overwhelmingly warm
This one, this form I hold now

Embracing you, this reality here
This one, this form I hold now
So wide eyed and hopeful
Wide eyed and hopefully wild

We barely remember what came before this precious moment
Choosing to be here right now
Hold on, stay inside
This body holding me, reminding me that I am not alone
This body makes me feel eternal
All this pain is an illusion

Nute Beautiful! 2mo

Come on, little boy
You don't need to cry
You don't need to cry your eyes out
Come on, kid
Keep your head up and sigh
You don't need to understand
The reasons why, oh why, oh why, oh why

jdiehr Hope all is well. Southern Oregon is taking some getting used to, but I'll get there 2mo
IamIamIam You can cry while you're holding your head up. I'm proof! 👀👍 2mo

IamIamIam @Trashcanman Screw that shit... I have total respect for you because you get up every day and keep chugging, even when it's hardest to pick your head up. 😁 Life is hard when you're fighting against yourself. I'm okay, day to day like usual. Just waiting for school to start!!! #GTFO 2mo

We are all divorced from life, we are all cripples, everyone of us, more or less. We are so divorced from it that we feel at once a sort of loathing for real life, and so cannot bear to be reminded of it.

Sometimes I feel so- I don‘t know - lonely. The kind of helpless feeling when everything you‘re used to has been ripped away. Like there‘s no more gravity, and I‘m left to drift in outer space with no idea where I‘m going‘
Like a little lost Sputnik?‘
I guess so.

I have a loving wife
I have loving children
I have loving parents
I have a loving brother
I have loving friends
I have loving acquaintances

But I am lonely
I am terribly lonely
I am disconnected from them
I am disconnected from myself
I live in my head
I serve no purpose
I long to be someone
I long to be dead

gradcat Omigod...this is really powerful...and really hitting home. How are you doing? You okay? Job okay? I miss seeing you here. ♥️ 2mo

cathysaid You are someone to someone (and by someone I mean me...and a few other genuine kickass people.) 😉 Don‘t go anywhere. I truly hope to meet you and yours one day. It‘s rare we find someone who gets it...all of it...all the messiness, joy, despair, numbness, rawness. Pain was real this week. But so were some beautiful realizations, good wine, great cake, and a couple of powerful connections. So I won‘t leave if you don‘t. YOU‘RE WORTHY.❤️❤️❤️ 2mo
