I'm not depressed, but over the last few days I've gotten a lot of anxiety. For some reason I've started being too preoccupied with the inevitable passage of time and mortality. I dunno if it's a midlife thing since I'm hitting 40 this year or just living in today's America has gotten to me, but I'm trying to deal with it and get it out of my mind before I turn into Howard Hughes. I re-read some journals and it helped a bit, since the entries from just 4 years ago seem like ages ago.. but still, time passes too quickly sometimes.


Dude, I'm with you. I became a father 6 weeks ago and I turn 40 in a week (!!). That and work has been pissing me off lately. Lots of feels.

Oh hey, other Shizzies who feel the claws of existential dread and the anxiety it feeds slowly scraping against their skin?

 

Hi friends!

I'm imagining Ellis writing the script to this at a computer, and every time he gets to the end of a line about religion being bad he smacks his fedora to tip it, making the sounds of a typewriter being reset.

I’m pretty sure I’m immune to midlife crisis cus I feel as tho my life has already been way too long, but if I have one I want it to take the form of a scene phase. I missed out the first time around.

Yay, at least I'm not alone in my sense of dread. Ken-oh - I'm envious that you at least have a kid. My wife and I will be reapproaching that subject in a year for health reasons, but at least she's fully on board with it at that point. I'm still concerned about that given our ages (she's a few years younger), but it's our best plan for now.

 

I spoke with my parents for a while regarding the whole thing today - they said in their experience it's a fairly common thing for people to go through and that my older sister had the same thing. Talking to them helped some, but it's like there's still a little tiny dude in the back of my head going "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" whenever I'm not distracted with something else.

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

I talked to a friend who is 45 about it in a bar bathroom while we were pissing and he was like, "I already DGAF"

I have existential dread all the time. Thanks to our current political climate and climate change especially; I try to keep it in check by just spending time with family, friends and doing things I want to do. I'm in a job that is very uncertain at this point but it's definitely leaning towards I should just get the fuck out of there. I'm trying to pursue my interests that I've been pursuing for however many decades now. I do take some hope in reading about people around my age or older who are just now getting to where they want to be in life. But it's still tough, because it really doesn't matter in the end. We're all just stardust on a rock orbiting a giant, continuous nuclear explosion.

I've had a couple bad days with this since posting, but a few things have been keeping me sane. The most important thing has been regular exercise, which is good anyway to keep me healthy. The second thing has been listen to Aubrey De Grey's interviews and speeches about the science of life extension. It's good to know that there are people out there doing research and working on these problems - gives me some level of hope.

Anybody ever try CBD oil? I've had it in capsule form before and it was somewhat helpful with my anxiety, but now I've got some liquid dropper style CBD coming in the mail which is more potent and has more immediate effects. I'm quite excited! The brand I ordered is called "Lazarus", according to Reddit it is one of the best brands as far as bang for your buck goes. On the cheaper side but still quit effective.

Was nice to see my friends on Saturday, but it's obvious trying to talk about my depression is rather pointless. Not that I really have a clue what I wanted to hear. Certainly not "maybe you need a therapist." Dude, I don't have a chemical imbalance or any of that. 

 

People just can't relate to my situation, and constantly bitching about it will just drive people away. 

I can't even drown my problems, had two beers for dinner and now I'm bloated and can't stop farting.

 

Found some cool peeps on Twitter recently, and Joe keeps cracking me up so thanks to ya'all.

I was gonna try using that to counter act depression around this time last year (a friend of mine from California was going to try and bring me some) but I ended up getting arrested for possession of marijuana and put on probation literally on my way to meeting up with them at our camping trip. So since then, I haven't been doing any type of marijuanas or anything that would come up on a drug test. which basically means I've just been playing it safe as hell all year and will continue to do so until my probationary period is over...honestly probably just in general because weed always makes me super paranoid and anxious. CBD oil is worth checking out for me though, I think.... maybe I'll give it a go in January.

It really does! I spent many years sleep deprived because of stress, or a strange need to “maximize” my non-work time by staying up too late. Also spent a long time avoiding sleep because of bad dreams without realizing that sleep deprivation made the nightmares worse. Committing to a decent, restful amount of sleep every night is probably the healthiest thing that I’ve ever done. I’m glad life is getting easier for you!!

Got back from the ENT, and even though all my symptoms pretty much align with Meniere's Disease, my VNG test was negative, so I'm being bounced to a neurologist for them to weigh in on this shit and if that doesn't come up with anything, then it's off to a MD specialist. I'm really sick of this shit; I just want my stupid, pointless life back.

Might have A.D.D.

Will report back on this once tests are completed and results are in. Next test is on the 25th.
