I hate coming up with titles 

I stopped taking my medication about a week ago. I didn’t like it at all. Yes, it worked, I didn’t feel as down as often. But I also wasn’t feeling good either. It was like my mood just kind of flatlined. I wasn’t happy, or sad, I just was.

I don’t want to live like that. What is the fucking point in living like that. Just merely existing. Not feeling anything. Ew.

The instruction leaflet that came with the box said not to immediately cease taking them unless the doctor says. I thought about that nicoret add. How it talks about cutting down and then stopping. So I snapped them in half for a couple days and then stopped. Close enough.

I did freak out for a while. I thought maybe I would go spiralling down into some crazy depression pit that I would never get out of.

But I haven’t yet. That’s a good thing.

I am still keeping my appointment with the psychologist. I really want to talk it out. But I didn’t like the idea of just medicating away my depression. I feel like this for a reason. I feel like this because I don’t like the way the world works, the way society works, the way people work.

Maybe I should just be greatful. I am lucky. I could have been born into a war torn country. Or one of those countries where they stone eachother to death for witchcraft and homosexuality or other random shit. or one where people starve to death and clean drinking water doesn’t exist. Or one where child soldiers are the norm, etc.

It’s a toss up between hell on earth, or just plain shit.

I was lucky enough to be born into a place where we have so much that 8 billion dollars worth of completely edible food goes to trash every year. A place where welfare recipients, drug addicts and homeless and generally considered the lowest of the low, whilst there are people who could baisicly end world hunger by emptying out the change in their pockets, but don’t, and they are respected and idolised.Here I have the opurtunity to work for 40 hours per week for 60 or so years, to allow me to obtain more shit than the cunts I went to high school with.  so I can buy shit produced by those countries where people don’t fucking eat, to keep up with fashion and what not, and say ” I worked hard, I earned this ridiculously oversized house and inbuilt car seat warmers so my ass doesn’t ever have to touch my cold leather seat. cold leather seats are for peasants”. All the while everyone’s bombing the fuck out of eachother because land ownership, God, and profitable wars are things.

Look, If people want clean drinking water they should just fucking work hard like me. Bludgers..

Anyway, apart from all that, things have been pretty positive lately.

I needed more stuff to do so I wasn’t sitting around thinking all the time. So I got myself a skateboard. I fixed up my old skate shoes with supplies from our first aid kid, MCgyver style, and I have been having so much fun on it. Just cruising up and down the esplanade for a few hours. I think I pulled a muscle in my ass though. Also my foot was getting some really sharp pains in it. I dunno

I’m also currently trying to learn computer code. I’m not entirely sure why yet. I just seen a thing on the internet about how Obama apparently said everyone should know how to code. I’m not gonna argue with Obama.

It’s actually really fun. Very challenging, but it provides me with multiple epiphany moments every time I do it. Because of stupid shit like forgetting to capitalise a letter. After spending an hour searching for my mistake.. BANG.. I’m totally a genius.

Tomorrow, I will attempt to do my favourite thing in the entire world.

I’m going to try quit again.

Wish me luck people. We all know I really need it.

    1. Nice. I’m a total beginner when it comes to coding. I’m just doing a code academy run through. My greatest achievement so far is a “guess the number” game in Python. Nothing spectacular but it felt good seeing it actually work 🙂

  1. I quit smoking over a year ago and it was the best decision I have taken in my life. I always heard about people quitting overnight and I used to think that it was impossible…. Well, it is not! 🙂 I wish you all the best!!!!!!!
    Learning to code is also something I am starting to do! How funny!


  2. With anti-depression drugs you’re not supposed to stop cold turkey because you will get a wicked case of the spins. Remember when you were a kid and you’d put your arms out and helicopter around then yard and then fall over and wait for the world to quit moving? It can be like that. I do know that anti-depressants are meant to be temporary, as in you go to your therapist and work things out with the help of medication, and then you go off the medication when you’re stable. If you have chronic depression, like so many of us, though, it’s not the same. There are new meds coming out all the time, though, that don’t give you that flatline/robot experience. You have to try different ones, and that’s a normal part of the experience. I think it’s awesome that you got some things to do so you stay a bit busy. I once read on Reddit that if you are depressed, take a shower. It really is the BANG in your head, like a starter pistol, that gets you going. To avoid massive depression this summer (I have life-long issues with summer that I could talk about), I joined the #20BooksofSummer challenge. Participants read and review 20 books between June 1st and September 5th. You really have to organize and keep on top of things if you want to succeed, and I’m a sucker for a challenge. I’m almost done with my last book. Then the review. Then the gloating/happy dance.
