Two people that I know killed themselves in the last 10 months. They had jobs, families, lots of friends....but only a select few even knew they were depressed. I think it can go much deeper than all this stuff (but I'm sure changing all that would be GREAT! Not holding my breath). Everyone has to deal with this bullcrap but not everyone is suicidal. Its a weird thing, suicide..it makes me sad for AND angry at the person.

I agree with #8, but to me #9 is the result of the same movement which still endeavors to overcome #4

@sajedachy = SPAMBOT! A very clever one, eh?

@AvatarJohn: lolz! I agree, but that's not going to be a popular opinion around here! Certain IABers think it's genetic to be gay, eh?

11) Stop pressuring kids into "coming out" and forcing them to adopt an unnatural and dangerous lifestyle that they really don't want to be a part of.

vv Your two posts about the "why" of the problem are spot on @Altaru! I'd just add "lawyers = bad" to the equation.

Holy crap, we agree on something?

I'm not sure how to react in this situation...

So I'm just going to make faces.

MacGuffin-"17. Everybody send MacGuffin £1"

Damn, why didn't I think of that. (Hey guys, great deal, I let you start someone elses happines for only half a pound! Or a buck! Better dean that MacGuffins).

MacGuffin-"18. Get a cat."

Also a great idea! (Got 8 myself...technically 3 & five kittens).

MacGuffin-"If all else fails, listen to this."

Good song. (Damn MacGuffin, you've caused me to agree with your three times in the same thread...please don't tell anyone!)

BlankTom-"i dont get the joke"

The joke is that the idiot who wrote this list probably actually believed it.

1) If they live their life by marketing, they're idiots.
2) No one 'gives' you a job, you have to earn it.
3) Wars happen. In this country, service is voluntary.
4) Women who follow magazines and TV are idiots.
5) Don't want to live your life under florescent tubes, better yourself.
6) It's called 'Work'.
7) If you live in fear (and are living outside of Chicago), you're an idiot. Those living IN Chicago fear for a reason.
8) It's actually very easy to go through life without getting arrested.
9) No one forced parents into any economic postion.
10) Or, stop writing bullpoo '10 things to do' list that is nothing but a very sad attempt to blame business, media and/or 'the system' for your choices in life.

@Altaru: "I can't imagine that would have been cheap over the years."
Yup! Since I've paid for most of it myself! You think we Candains get FREE stuff? lolz nope! Unlike the Simpsons episode, we have to pay up to our "deductable" which is anywhere from $1K - $3K (depending on income).
Sure it helps my Mum, who has serious illnesses and would spend tons o' cash on meds, but most of us still pay about the same as Americans do.

Greed, when kept in check, keeps an economy running like a well-oiled machine. But, like putting too much oil in an engine, too much greed will cause it to break down.

Conservatives want to let the floodgates loose, liberals want to dam the whole river up. There is no happy medium in politics, because they're all being paid off by one group or another.

This is why America is f*cked.

As they say, those who don't learn from history, are doomed to repeat it...

Financing/loans are the entire source of the problems with the world's economy.

Bingo.

This is the problem that caused the 20s to collapse into the 30s. People spending money they don't have.

The issue is, with insurance companies and government funding and the like artificially inflating prices, the prices for many things are well above what people can afford out of pocket.

Simply tripping on a water hazard can cause someone to go bankrupt, because the average person can't afford the inflated hospital bills and doctor bills and every other f*cking bill they're going to throw at him for his damaged whatever because they know people with insurance can afford to "let someone else's money take care of it."

It's the same with college tuition. Instead of letting students benefit from scholarships and government grants, colleges jack up their prices to include the "free money."

Look people the problem with health care is not paying cash. Period. Insurance is a form of financing. So is government assistance. If everyone had to pay what they could afford the cost would adjust itself to the true value. People would be forced to take responsibility for their actions. Financing/loans are the entire source of the problems with the world's economy.

Generally when we begin psychiatric meds they are unless contraindicated.

Should read: Generally when we begin psychiatric meds they are continued unless contraindicated.

I am in my second year of Practitioner school (psych ARNP with addictions focus)at SU. I am not a provider yet, but I will be soon. I also work at an involuntary psychiatric hospital in Seattle. Generally when we begin psychiatric meds they are unless contraindicated. I am all for working clients off of medications, but that is not the way we generally work. Now antidepressents are easier for people to come off of then antipsychotics (even though more and more people with depression are being given atypical antipsychotics) it is a rare psychiatrist (in my experience) that takes a patient off of medication. That could because I work primarily with low income medicaid clients, and I don't see how empowered people with insurance interact with their psychiatric providers.

4-6 MONTHS is my wait for therapy now, yay Canadian healthcare! ObamaCare will get those wait times up there y'all, just re-elect him!

While that kind of wait IS a little ridiculous, would you rather wait a while or go bankrupt?

You admit you're on your 10th or so medication, I can't imagine that would have been cheap over the years.

Insurance and health care in general is f*cked up with greed and inefficiency... You can't escape one without landing right in the other.

@Lebowski42: I also question if @Jamie is a doctor or a patient at the "nut house" but he is correct: MANY, if not most people who seek treatment for depression are only on meds for a comparatively short time. If the meds do their job the stress and anxiety should lessen, that coupled with changes to lifestyle (therapy helps there) and hopefully you'll be better soon.

Unlike hardcore kooks like me! On meds for 20 years almost, starting my 10th (? idk I lost count) different type tomorrow! Hope this one has no G-D side effects, eh?

@MacGuffin: Better, the Smiths are good!

However: "toy die by your side is such a heavenly way to die / and if a 10 ton truck killed the both of us"

Um, yikes!

CBT isn't really psychotherapy... You know that right jamie? Good on you for working in the field but saying things like "most people with depression do not require medication for a prolonged period of time" makes me think that you are either really intent on making a point without writing too much, or have no idea what you are talking about.

Actually, the world does suck and these are all relevant points, but for ordinary people you just don't have to let the bastards get you down. I think depression is more nature than nurture, so people would commit suicide whatever their circumstances.

I don't appreciate the military and I'm not about to start... I don't see what's so admirable about it, unless they're rescuing people from natural disasters or some such, but then they can hardly be called a military.

sorry my post should have said, "WITHOUT MEDICATION" for the part about heart disease.
