Thanks so much, guys. I also feel a strange conflict between how sad I feel, and how privileged I feel with chimonstray's parents as my in-laws. They have told us not to worry about the vet bills or rent at all until either of us can afford them, which I certainly can't on my meager wages (though if I can finally stay stable after increasing my hours again, I should be back on my feet soon and able to pay them back in some way). As a result, I took charge at the vet's office and asked them to print out a detailed quotation authorizing every conceivable effort to keep her alive if there was a chance that she could live comfortably again. Because we never knew for sure what was causing her decline until the very end, we gave them permission to do CPR just in case there was something that could still be done, and they did their absolute best. I thanked them from the bottom of my heart before leaving.

Folks, give pet insurance some serious consideration and think about annual or even semi-annual x-rays and blood panels. I've learned that those could be the difference between absolute devastation and either some form of consolation, or an extended lifespan for your pet.

Matt, that's so awful and I'm so sorry. Isis had urinary crystals that caused her immense pain before she passed, and I still have thoughts about how I failed her by assuming she was just peeing on things out of an old habit. I'm glad to know that you've at least identified the kidney problems, but I sincerely hope that Buddy can live more comfortably soon with whatever help the vet can conjure up. I wish pets were easier to care for with illnesses like these. :( Give all my best to Buddy!!!

First of all, fuck cancer!

 

Dude, i'm really sorry to hear that.

Losing a cat is always a big deal, it never gets any easier.

 

Cats are known to have kidney problems and heart conditions and depending on the breed also breathing problems.

The natural lifespan of a cat is supposed to be between 8-10 years, but domesticated cats can live up to 20 (avg is usually around 15).

So, when you think about your cat, please know that it lived a full life. and if it showed any of the usual behavoir of a happy cat, there were probably nothing you could do.

 

They are amazing little creatures.

 

Again, sorry for your loss.

I consistently hide how I am feeling from anyone I associate with. It feels like an act. I put on a smile and laugh and it's genuine but not indicative of how I am feeling day to day. 

I'm dropping out of college because I don't see the point in continuing to accumulate debt when I don't know what I'm gonna be doing for the rest of my life. 
moving back in with my parents because I can't afford to live anywhere.
I feel like a failure and there is nothing to look forward to.
I'm frustrated at how little I get done over such a large amount of time.
little tasks seem like huge obstacles.

and I tell no one that I feel like garbage because I don't want to burden anyone with my feelings. 
So I end up feeling like complete shit and no one knows because I never tell anyone.
and I laugh and smile and share memes and that makes others think I'm doing as okay as I tell them I am.

I should see a therapist up here at college but I will only be up here for a few more months so i'm feeling like what's the point?
I don't want to die. If I did, my aunt would have to pay off all my college debt. Can't escape capitalism even in death.
I also feel like I've accomplished nothing in my life so that would fucking suck if I am nothing, die, then someone has to pay for my death.


I haven't posted on the shizz in a long time and I am scared to post this.
self worth is low.

Take advantage of any counseling you can get at school even if it's short term. They may be able to refer you to someone to see afterwards. But in the meantime most universities offer free counseling and even if it's short term it could get you on a good path.

Getting out of depression is a hell of an accomplishment, focus on that as step one. It gets much easier once you have that monkey off your back and you can start looking at the world and your life through a healthy lens. I've been on both sides of it and know how truly terrifying and painful depression is. Life after depression isn't all cupcakes and rainbows, sure, but man is it a lot more fun!

Take absolutely any help you can. Go to a counselor as soon as possible (sounds like you're ready) and just take off the shackles of not talking to anyone about how you feel. Let your counselor, that one person, in to what you're experiencing and it'll start to make a difference. Just talking about it here with us is a great step and I hope you keep up the momentum and see a professional. You may think you're only going to be in that school for a few months, but a few months of therapy can make a big difference, so don't write anything off yet.

 

Anywho, if you ever need to talk about your shit send me a PM. When I first started reaching out on theshiiz, weener's private messages helped me tremendously and I'd love to provide whatever help I can to a fellow shizzie. You're a good person and worth fighting for, don't let depression convince you otherwise.

I'm gonna go ahead and bump this. I've been in a bit of a mess mentally of late and today certainly isn't helping me keep it together. We could all use affirmation that things will get better, and surely they must, but my god does this world seem too fucked up to participate in sometimes.

I do love you all and I haven't forgotten about any of you, believe it. Be safe out there

hey all, i know i'm not really around on here anymore but seeing this thread made me want to say: i have been at the lowest of lows (nd theres probably some hideous old posts of mine floating in here), but things CAN get better and there is hope even if you cannot personally see or feel it. i went from planning my actual suicide to now, the happiest time of my life. therapy, self help reading, eating right, giving a shit about yourself and finding the medication that is right for you can change your world in ways you never could imagine and we are all pulling for each other. it can get better. hugs and kisses!

I know the feel, I haven't been around much either and I miss all of you so much.

I keep shuffling between facebook and the shizz and twitter and my texts and messenger and not really looking at anything just, not sure what to do right now

Am I the only one who felt like Daemon was the Patron Saint of the Depression and Social Issues thread with how uplifting he's always been? Is that weird? It feels justified in my head.

 

My thoughts are kind of airy right now and I'm emotionally exhausted so the ol' deep thinking isn't happening. I both want to stay up and commiserate with other Shizzies because you guys know the best how horrid this is, but also crawl into bed and pray like hell today was just a horrible dream.

 

Right now I'm sipping water because fluids have kept leaking from my eyeballs the past 4 hours.

 

Love you guys.

I just said something like this to Robby in a text but, the weight of it right now sort of makes me feel like not participating in life any more but also what an insulting stain that would be on Sean's legacy of homie empowerment and self-improvement. I don't mean like, suicide, but just more like give up and get old and fat and kind of check out. But instead, I will continue to work to self-improve and rock and love, partly now in his memory.

Joe, it was great to finally meet you in person. You're a funny dude and I got the warm and fuzzies right away.

Anyways, yeah....stay strong everyone. Daemon would be in this thread supporting us all through anything as horrific as this.

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.
