After drinking too much the night before at a party I held at my house, I was told tomato juice would help me feel better. So I went to the refrigerator and pulled out an already opened bottle of tomato juice. I poured myself a nice cold tall glass of the stuff. I was so dehydrated I downed the entire thing only to realize it was mixed with vodka for the Caesars we were making the night before.

Then there was the time I had a terrible stomach ache and thought I should take some Kaopectate medicine. I was pretty young and had no clue how much to take. I started drinking it from the bottle only to realize it was Calamine lotion which has the same pink colour.

My, My, what that boy gets up to while I'm not around to monitor him. Knowing Rick all to well, I'm sure he put this in as a reaction to all the "something of the day" posts. Didn't Art Theime do that with condoms a year ago?
However, just to throw a monkey wrench into his satirical plans, I'll ask a serious question. Two out of three people that I know are currently on some form of anti-depressants. Most have regular office jobs and certainly credit work pressures for much of their depression symptoms. My doctor offered me that option but so far I'm staying drug-free, other than wine and detective novels. Are there any Mudcatters who'll 'fess up to being big financial supporters of the "Prozac" industry?
By the way, Catspaw, when we met you and heard all that "rattling" we thought it was simply hunger pains!

Duckboots. Without going into the gory details, I have suffered severe depression for most of my life. Six years ago, after a family crisis, I went on anti-depressants. The change had beendramatic. I am a nicer person to be around and I like myself a lot better.

Like you, I self-medicated with booze for years. Booze is not the answer. If you have been diagnosed with depression, get help. There are alot of different therapies out there and not all of them rely on drugs. The stigma of mental illness is slowly fading and as more and more of us come out the walls are coming down.

Depression is a disease. It can be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. Find out! It is not a moral weakness. It is a disease and it is treatable.

As you can tell, this is a topic that I view with some passion. If There had not been the stigma, I might have sought help sooner and some of the bad things in my life would not have happened. I do not hide my condition. I am rather an advocate for openness about mental illness.

If you need someone to talk to, e-mail me.I'll listen.

Hi Boots....... yeah I could see Rick's idea, but the problem was the same as Art's too...The subject was too tempting for a joke or two. And like Art's condom thread, although the point may have been missed, its infinitely better than the threads its lampooning. I like Peter's thoughts, but the other stuff.........Oh well. The song of the day crapped out before, but now its back in a new and more hideous incarnation. Medication was cute, but not blatant enough. Tell Rick to opt for a series of "of the Day" postings next time. Socks, cloud, fruit, furniture, plumber's helper, etc......Start them all at the same time. Might work.

I took Prozac for about a year to prevent migraines. It worked pretty well and even though I wasn't depressed to begin with, I felt a lot better about life. It quit working on the headaches and I went off. Got a new Dr who put me back on - at more than twice my previous dosage. After a week, I had every nasty side effect in the book. I was on Amitryptoline (another anti-depressant) for migraines earlier in life. I felt half dead for the entire time. Funny, but the same chemical imbalances in the brain that contribute to depression also seem to contribute to migraines. Now I take an herb, feverfew, which works just as well at preventing migraines as the drugs did, but has no side effects.

Duckboots, I was diagnosed with depression in high school and placed on Zoloft. I stopped taking it four days later.... four days without a minute of sleep. I took Paxil once, and threw up. I use full spectrum light bulbs which more closely simulate natural light. They're about $5 a pop, but they work wonders for your mood, reduce eye strain, and last about twice as long as regular bulbs. My depression is more seasonal though, I have no symptoms in the summer.

Thanks for the concern Troll and Hagbard, but I have to say that very shortly after leaving a job that had become seriously unpleasant due to understaffing I felt a lot better. It's a rather frightening prospect to try and reinvent yourself at forty, but after having spent 15 years in high rise offices, surrounded by many equally frustrated, harried and unhappy people, I welcome the opportunity to try and find something more satisfying to do with my life. My doctor explained that if I went on the right medication, I'd be able to return to work in a few weeks, and things would "appear" much better. I guess I'm taking the long way around, but I think for myself, it's the best way.

The "wine and detective stories" cure was meant as a joke. I guess I've been married to Rick long enough that I occasionally throw out the same kind of lines as he does, without realizing they might be taken more seriously than their original intent.

Rick believes that one must "create one's own environment as fully as possible" to be happy. For years he played in bars, and tells me that he was not a contented person, constantly frustrated at the musical ignorance of his audiences, but unwilling to let go of the large-for a musician-paychecks he was earning. He only plays now where people value folk music and supliments that with teaching two days a week. He gets VERY involved with his students, and when someone makes real progress, he is ecstatic. I guess I'm looking for a job where I feel I can "make a difference",-although I wouldn't mind one that pays more than his.

Hi Duckboots,

I found that beginning around age 40, a natural opportunity to reinvent myself had begun, and when I talked to other women they were having the same experience. I would like to welcome you to the sisterhood of wild women who don't worry (the over-40 class), and you know what? Just about everything you look forward to will be surpassed by what actually unfolds. This is an excellent time to be an excellent woman doing excellent things. You go girl!!!

Duckboots, I was lucky enough to have a chemistry teacher when I was about 23yo explain this to me in words of one syllable(all I could absorb at the time) He said the choice is a job you dislike, that will bore you you rigid, and pays you lots of dosh to do what you like when you are away from it, or a job you enjoy and can get involved in but that will never make you rich, I opted for the second and It is still enjoyable, I became an administrator for 8 years and made dosh but not too much and was stressed out to almost breakdown level, then they did me the biggest favour ever, they made me redundant, I could claim my pension , and now I work part-time, with students again and I am enjoying life, my stress level dropped by about 99,999% overnight.
You spend 1/2 your wakeing hours at work, if you are not enjoying it, get out.Plan and scheme and do it in your own time and when it suits you but life is too short for Crap eating.

Hi Duckyboots
11 years ago I left the my job working as a hospital administrative dietitian because I could not fit into the mold of job descriptions, policy and proceedures.
I decided I was going to reinvent myself. I spent a few years drumming up all kinds of business plans that never got off the ground and I would take on different kinds of work to explore other avenues.
I went through career counselling assessments which summarized things I already knew about myself and gave me no specific answers or clear direction to follow. I've been through 15 years of psychoanalysis sometimes going 2 times per week. My psychiatrist would often fall asleep in the middle of my session. He basically offered me a safe place where I could freely talk through my issues with myself.
I found trying to figure out what I wanted to do was like trying to find an 'earing in the haystack'.
What did help was understanding what I did not like to do. I began to carve away all the things I did not enjoy doing and as I did that, I started to understanding better what kind of things did interest me. I am still working on this.
The tools that I have found helpful are:
The Artist Way, by Julia Cameron
Journalling my feelings every day
Letting go of thinking I have to do something spectacular to show my worth. This last one was probably my biggest discovery. When I finally realized I need not do anything impressive to prove my worth, I started to really see what kinds of work I find fulfilling.
Finding work that makes me happy has been a major theme in my life. If you ever want to chat about this over a cup of Starbucks, I would be more than happy to.
Luv Bonnie

Praise, let me give you my prescription. A warm fire, a glass of wine (or whatever warms your insides), a warm friend, and warm music. Cures most my ills. Certainly after a hard day of life.

Love, annap

Thanks, annap and Micca,

I will administer same to Hardiman when next he ingests.

Actually a lovely image is coming RIGHT NOW of how this prescription occurs every week at our lovely church, when we co-lead the Sat. night service, and are together in the Arms of another (the Physician Himself) for just that prescription. Sometimes that service becomes work, but you have given me words not only to remind us, but to translate this image for others when they need to hear it.

I owe youse one, which I'll *repay* some Saturday night with "I'll Remember You Love in My Prayers."

A buddy o' mine had a hemmorhoid break free and lodge in his heart. His doc prescribed vodka and Milk Of Magnesia----a grand drink called a Phillips Screwdriver. Took care of several of his problems at one time.

Also, an aspirin held firmly betwwen the knees is a great birth control pill.

An old folk remedy said, "to cure depression, put a carrot in your shoe."

Another old folk remedy said, "to cure a sever limp, remove the carrot from your shoe."

I say, "If you are limp, take Viagra. You'll be flacid in no time. But ya gotta wait for the BEEP."

Hey Art,
Your buddy wouldn't be the one who had a thread dedicated to his hemmorhoids would he?

It's amazing how many times Viagra comes up in a thread here. :P
Ok, here it is again...
The final verse to The final verse to Maids When You're Young
I say give 'em Viagra
Fi Diddle di agra
Give 'am viagra
fi Diddle ie ay
I say give 'em Viagra
And he'll be all UP AND ATTUM'
And all the young maids
Will want to bed that old man.

And they'll get their fallorum
Fi diddle di or um
They'll get their fallorum
Fi diddle di ay
They'll get they're fallorum
And the girls won't ignore 'em
And all the young maids
Will bed that old man.

Uh oh, I just remembered another folk remedy, which may be why there are so many folk,and some of them acidic--

Birth control? A slice of lemon, inserted as a barrier. No guarantees but goes well with fish. (IYKWIM.)

Why is taking Viagra like a trip to Disney World?

It's a two hour wait for a two minute ride.
