Having struggled with depression myself, I know how hard it can be admit it to anyone.
Congratulations on getting out there with your art and on your decision to lay off alcohol.
If you’re looking into psychiatrists to have someone to talk to, you may find that a therapist is less expensive and better. It seems like psychiatrists nowadays mainly prescribe medications. A good family practitioner can probably prescribe an antidepressant. 5 hours ago
That’s exactly it. I feel like I have to do it because I said I would, but when I’m balking at the time it will take. 6 hours ago
It was a lovely day. I didn’t enjoy touring the castle, because it was just too crowded. But we had a very nice lunch at a little restaurant oasis in the castle, and then we walked all over the gardens. We walked to the very end of the property, which was a long way. It was so peaceful and pretty. We found a secluded bench and had a nice nap. I loved, loved, loved Marie Antoinette’s country farm and the English gardens surrounding it. We also got to enjoy some “dancing waters” fountain and music shows. We walked over sixteen miles on that day! 6 hours ago
Wow, I’ve never heard of a hearing person who couldn’t listen to music. Life would be much flatter without our tunes. When we visited the gardens of Versailles (just recently!), we went on a day when period music was played in the gardens. That was a wonderful surprise.
I’m still having a hard time figuring out the exact definition of a hipster. In Kerouac days, hipster was a good thing, but it seems to no longer be the case.1 day ago

I seem to have lost my initial enthusiasm, so your asking has got me thinking about it again. I need to enroll in the class, and I need to commit to a workable schedule for completing the classes. 2 days ago
This year, I’m going to break away from my usual favorites and plant either a butterfly, hummingbird or fragrance garden. 3 days ago
is what I use when my allergies are bad, one OTC pill one time a day. It helps. I get allergy shots, too, but that’s more long-term solution. 3 days ago
I haven’t enrolled yet. I decided to wait until I got back from Paris, which just happened this week.
Thank you for asking! :) 3 days ago

Sorry it took so long for me to respond. I only just received e-mail notification of your comment. I’ve added you to the list. You’re the first 8/26 birthday on this list. :) 6 days ago
mainly for the reasons you mentioned and also because of this. 1 week ago
I didn’t even know it existed. :)
I did take some classes at the Zen Center was a nice place. The monks there were very real. 1 week ago
I would find it distracting and would probably lapse into lots of judgmental thinking, which is uncomfortable.
If it’s possible, you could use this as an opportunity to refine your concentration. Meditation is filled with distractions, sometimes external, sometimes internal, and the ultimate response is to simply note that you are distracted and return to your meditation.
Hard to do, I know! This is one of the reasons I’m not currently doing yoga in a classroom setting! On the other hand, it reminds me of some Buddhist stuff I’ve read about ignoring a fly while it is buzzing around your meditating head. 1 week ago
If I’m feeling sad or am depressed to begin with, then the approach of a birthday is just another thing to feel blue about. 2 weeks ago
