I think it depends on how bad the depression is. When I was going through a breakup/job loss I was so depressed it was hard to get out of bed. I didn't have enough motivation to work out and I felt like my body was 1000 lbs. I took the antidepressants for a period of time and it helped me get the energy to work out and get my life back together. To each their own... [ Reply | More ]

drugs are also intended to help someone manage and cope while they go through short term issues. Manage anxiety or not desiring to get out of bed, for example. A good doctor will have a patient take drugs in increments and wean them off in increments as well. [ Reply | More ]

I live in the Bronx (have also lived in Manhattan, Queens, and Bklyn for extended periods) and many areas are really pretty. It's one of the better-planned boroughs, along with Brooklyn--good transit options, lots of green space. I've never been impressed by what I've seen of SI--I even found the beaches there to be depressing. Queens is an un-planned mess with crappy parks and overcrowding issues--half the borough has no subway access and they let (or look the other way when) everyone pave their front yards for extra parking.

If you choose to drink, exceeding the recommended limit of one alcoholic drink a day increases your breast cancer risk. “But that risk is very low,” says Therese Bevers, medical director of MD Anderson’s Cancer Prevention Center. “You need to be more concerned if it becomes a routine in which you drink more than one drink each day.” More than 100 studies have looked at the association between alcohol consumption and breast cancer risk in women. These studies, although observational – meaning they draw on inferences from researchers - have consistently found an increased risk of breast cancer associated with alcohol intake. “We always question the validity of observational data, but with this we’re seeing it over and over again,” Bevers says. And while some studies show that one glass of wine a day can be good for your heart, you shouldn’t have more if you’re trying to stay healthy. [ Reply | More ]

No, but I'm a WOHM and love talking about my kid when the opportunity arises. She's a joy for me. I guess I could talk about security systems in train stations or something, but usually the people I'm talking to also have kids, so it's a good point of conversation. [ Reply | More ]

My SIL but she is almost 20 years older than me. Her favorite thing to say is “You’ll see.” .....I want to punch her in the face each time she says that. She has been home for over 20 years. Soon she will be an empty nester waiting for grand kids to be popping out so she could validate her existence. Her skill set is very out dated to return to work. [ Reply | More ]

My dh is sahd and he fell into that with our friends and family (who obviously knew and cared about our dc). I had to point out to him that he needed to refrain from mentions dc for the entire evening. He got it. I still sometimes remind him before we go out [ Reply | More ]

I know many women like this, and most WOH. No part of me can grasp this. It's as if they are no longer a person with their own interests. I love politics, news, TV, science, technology, etc, and can sustain conversations in any of those topics. This is sadly why I prefer to interact with men and now that I am 40 and mostly unattractive, I have an easier time doing this. [ Reply | More ]

I see the psychiatrist once a year and the therapist every 1-2 weeks. Zoloft. I will probably always have dysthymia. My job helps immensely; I like to accomplish things, and I put on my best face at work. I am respected there, I trained for many years (pathologist). [ Reply | More ]
