    Valentines Day sucks

    I never gave a rip about Valentines day. It's just another opportunity for the greeting card companies and flower shops to make a killing off of us saps. Don't let it get you down, it's more commercialized these days than ever.

    I live in D.C.

    I know the area well. I used to live there then moved to Virginia, then a short stint in Maryland before moving back to Virginia. It's a very nice area to live. I miss it often.

    How are you feeling?

    It's currently 1:13 pm where I am. Went out early this morning for breakfast. The food was lousy and a homeless man sat down beside me and was about to dive into a weird conversation before I moved to a different table. Then my wife went shopping at the mall. When we met up at the car later...

    How do you deal with Bullies that have better lifes than you do at your expense

    I think it's a bad idea to think of it as them beating you simply because they appear to have perfect lives. For starters, there's no such thing as a perfect life. Also, they can't beat you unless you allow them to. In other words, their lives and how well they (appear) to live it should have...

    I didn't know that magnesium deficiency could cause lack of sleep, anxiety and depression. Have been taking a supplement for the past week and feeling slightly better.

    How do you deal with Bullies that have better lifes than you do at your expense

    You'd be surprised at how many people who appear to have it all, who are actually dealing with inner turmoil. Sometimes what they are dealing with is worse than our anxiety, depression, or OCD if you can believe it. I'm old enough to have known people who I thought were on top of the world who...

    How are you feeling?

    Sometimes I get frustrated with Facebook with all the political and downright time-wasting posts that show up on my newsfeed but then I think of all the people I've connected with who I otherwise would not. That's what makes it a great site.

    How are you feeling?

    It's not a new job anymore. I've just celebrated my two year anniversary. It's a great job and although some of the people I really liked when I first started working there have left, it's still been one of the best things I've been blessed with in a long while.

    How are you feeling?

    I have the best job now that I've had in decades. So why am I still getting a case of Sunday evening blues, knowing I go back to work tomorrow? Once I get there, things are always fine. Maybe force of habit because my other jobs were always so stressful.

    The "Last Thing You Bought" game.

    A blue shirt with gold accents. Blue and gold is my favorite color combination. I was happy to find such a tasteful combination online.

    how are you feeling? (in images)

    I'd just like to note how awesome this forum is. I just realized (days later) that I accidentally made my last post in the "How are you feeling (in images)" thread, thinking it was the other thread (without images required). I received two sympathetic replies as well as two likes from other...

    how are you feeling? (in images)

    Feeling weird. Lately I've been aware that my anxieties have no foundation yet I have a feeling of impending doom, like something really bad is about to happen. The thing is, my life has been going pretty well lately.

    Post your random thoughts/feelings etc

    Was invited to an outing to celebrate the Christmas season with a bunch of people I vowed not to be around anymore about a year ago. I agreed to go as a way of forgiving/self healing. It's over a week away and already I'm starting to regret it. Balancing forgiveness with staying away from...

    Guys a question for you

    I don't understand. The poster says "It is Forbidden to Mansplain", not Man-Spread. The poster doesn't offend me. Mansplain is when men explain to women about things women know more about than men such as childbirth, etc. I totally get the point of the poster and think it's actually amusing...

    What is your biggest problem, struggle with Social Anxiety?

    It's nowhere near that simple. Usually, when I'm misunderstood, it's gone beyond a simple explanation by the time I even find out I've given the wrong impression. And a simple explanation doesn't do with people who don't understand what social anxiety or OCD really is about. Try telling the...
