Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

get over my depression (read all 2 entries…)

Okay so I’ve been on Zoloft for a week now and I feel a tiny bit better but I absolutely cannot eat! My appetite is totally gone, food tastes horrible. I read about others experiences and some people said they lost 20 pounds in the first two weeks alone! I’m 120 pounds usually and 5’6 so that will look horrible. I’m already down to 113. :/ Anyone else lose a lot of weight on Zoloft? I also heard this will level out later on once I get used to it, but it’s going to be hell. At least it’s helping..

get over my depression (read all 2 entries…)
I don't know what to do anymore.

I week ago I was feeling so depressed I went to the hospital because I felt that if I didn’t, I would do something stupid. I’m on medication now, but I feel like it won’t help. I feel like my life is on pause. Everyone around me is moving forward and I’m stuck in one place. I can’t function. I have horrible insomnia which I take medication for, I can’t eat because I have no appetite, my sex drive is so dull, I feel like doing nothing all the time but doing nothing just makes me feel worse. I just want to stop feeling this way, but I don’t think I will for a while because shit is really fucked up. I’m 17 but I’ve been through so much recently I just can’t cope.

One is at a half inch and the other is at double zero :)
