what works? hmmm, I take the medicine and I think it helps me to stay calm and not say crazy stuff that I will regret later.
I always think it would be great to do volunteer work but usually I go and then feel like an oddball -- I tend to be very quiet and that just freaks people out. Plus, I am gay and in my red state that is not a great thing.
I have tried church -- but I just can't deal with it. If you don't go every Sunday, they forget who you are. I just read a magazine from one of my favorite faiths, that's all I can handle.
My favorite thing is to just peace out in nature. When I walk in the woods, especially if it is a new trail and a lot of birds are singing in the trees, I feel happy to be alive.
I hope that helps, wildbeagle. And I welcome anybody else's comments on my issues.
