uttertosh: Ghastly: The other annoying side effect of Paxil besides the super suicidal thoughts part was it made me hyper horny but completely unable to orgasm. Didn't matter how many transexual Asian swathed choked me while I masturbated with a dead chicken. I still couldn't cum.

gweilo8888: Dear Prudence: My favorite time-wasting website has started taking kickbacks from Slate to run endless links to Dear Prudence columns that are largely fictitious letters written by Slate's staff, so that  a fictitious person called Prudence can write fictitious answers pretending to provide advice while merely bulking out the column inches to fit some more ads in. I hate it.


Gosh, that does sound annoying! Have you ever thought of switching to another time-wasting website, such as Reddit, Jezebel, io9, or Yahoo Answers? I find that most time-wasting websites are just the same stories that have been passed around the Internet like your mom at one of your father's lodge meetings. By the time they get to the sites above, they're already a bit ragged and overexposed, anyway. I doubt your favorite time-wasting website is terribly different from any others, and so the net result would be that you succeed in wasting your time and you get caught up on the absolutely useless information that passes for news, entertainment, and conversation in our modern society.

If you're really sick of it, though, you could always try to aid in creating a big-time comeback for YTMND or eBaum's World, or alternately, you could stick a dildo up your ass and log in to 4chan.

CapeFearCadaver: EdNortonsTwin: CapeFearCadaver: EdNortonsTwin: What do you think would be harder? Getting off paxil or getting off a fat wife?

I don't know, but my ex couldn't get off while he was one paxil...

Was he annoyingly cheerful? Because I can't get my nut and laugh at the same time.

Good lord no. That man's never been cheerful, much less annoyingly so.

He was using it as a supplementation on top of a slew of other medications for bipolar with intermittent explosive disorder. The thing I noticed while he was on paxil was that he was more... himself. They did help him, at least with the immediately running to his hulksmashrage any time things didn't go his way. But, he got off of them because he couldn't get off... or it took him too much time to.


That was probably nice...at first....for you.  *laughs*.

Delawheredad: I was married to a suicidal cutter. One day she carved words into the bottom of her feet because "God was out to get her." She eventually got better, more through therapy than medication. Once she was healthy she dumped me because my very presence reminded her of when she was sick. What a FUN twenty years that was! I got two great kids out of it or it would have been a total waste of time.


wtf!  the biatch OWES you for putting up with her and nursing her back to health.  what a coont.

Thanks for years of selflessly helping me life-mate!  Time to dump you!

To the question whether anti-depressants make you happy, he answer is (surprise surprise) depends on the person and the anti-depressant.  I recently went on a low dose of zoloft for seasonal-affective and it made a world of difference.  Made me happier, more outgoing, and even made me feel stronger and put on muscle. (in theory due to an overall decrease of stress and therefore cortisol)  Two of my friends came forward and said they tried Zoloft and it turned them into listless zombies, so it definitely depends.

Good point. Easy way to test this - how many mass shootings were due to an over-medicated individual?  Count them up.  I'll wait.

Snark aside, nearly every mass shooting is a story of a person who needed treatment (including medication) and DIDN'T get it.  Over-treatment isn't a problem.  Quite the opposite.  Think about what you're typing.  You'll look far less silly.

People who like porn but not the gonzo style that makes up the vast majority of free porn?

payed supermodel porn for those whose lifestyles make them as ripped as the male actors. Gonzo for the rest of us slobs.

There's a market for every fetish imaginable. Fat, hairy blokes pounding their evening's 'doggybag' form their bar is much more realistic, thus having a greater appeal to the masses. unachievable goddesses shot in artsy HD? Most guys out there are 'meh' about paying the 50$ a month to see prepubescent (shavenhaven) girls doing things in an overproduced fashion isn't that 'hot', unless you've never had sex (with anything other than you hand). There's a glut in the market for this kind of gonzo, (easier, cheaper to shoot) Mainstream porn companies (looking at you Vivid Video) are all about DVD sales. It's an outmoded concept.

From the article just below:
My husband and I are both politically liberal, support public radio, donate to the ACLU, and both have gay and lesbian friends. He thinks it's funny, however, to adopt a stereotypical gay lisp from time to time when telling a story or a joke.


LOL. The article just below is always funnier.

Bruxellensis: Beware if your wife/gf/mistress starts to take antidepressants or anti anxiety pills.  They will lose about half of their libido.

Better mood, less sex.

screw you, laws of inverse proportions


It still may be a net improvement, depending on their previous mood. Lap dances from crying strippers aside, depression itself can kill one's libido (and/or one's partner's).
 
2013-04-11 04:33:29 PM  
Wow, what a selfish a$$hole.  "My wife wasn't happy before, but now she is and I hate it"?  What kind of husband WANTS his wife to be depressed?  Does he have a life insurance policy on her and was hoping to cash it in soon?  Honestly, though, it sounds like he is also depressed and can't stand the thought of his wife being happy while he is not.  Maybe he should take something for it :P
 
2013-04-11 04:34:01 PM  
I remember trying an anti-anxiety drug some years back on the advice of m on-again, off-again ex, because she took a sub-therapeutic dose of paxil and suggested I try something similar. My first shock was when the person I assumed was the skanky admin turned out to be the doctor asked me a few questions, and I realized that I was answering her like a real person instead of someone answering a questionnaire in order to buy drugs.

My second shock was the actual effect, pegged at a month of acclimatization or something. Frankly I'm fuzzy on the details because it was like being on crappy mushrooms all the time. Given how I react to pseudo-ephedrine in cold medication, I probably should never have taken it. Anyhow, eventually the profuse sweating caused a fungal bloom: hands, feed, crotch, everywhere. The skin on my hands was essentially rotting off, and it looked like it, and I didn't feel safe driving to boot.

These days I don't care how much life sucks, so long as I don't have to go back on that medication. So yeah, drugs, your mileage may vary.

monoski: paxil


I was on Paxil for several months in college due to an awful brush with panic disorder (multiple panic attacks a day, including one immediately on waking up in the morning).  It was gangbusters at stopping the panic attacks, which was really what I needed.  I was able to catch my breath and let some therapy work.  However, it almost totally removed my ability to orgasm, or to really enjoy much of anything.  My poor boyfriend was very nice about it, but it's hard when your girlfriend isn't really interested any dates.  It didn't stop me from getting horny, which was the most torturous part.  I remember once trying for half an hour, and just as I was getting there we were interrupted.  I actually burst out in tears I was so frustrated.

Psychoactive drugs can really, really help.  They are especially important for illnesses like panic disorder, like bipolar disorder, like schizophrenia because those illnesses seriously screw with your life and all the lives of the people you interact with.  But man, we're new to tinkering with brain chemistry and sometimes all the options for toning down your symptoms suck at letting you enjoy anything.

Dear gweilo8888,

Gosh, that sounds awful! I find that when I'm feeling down about things like this, I like to visit a little website called BUZZFEED™. Whenever I go to BUZZFEED™, I find the latest trends on the internet, distilled into simple, easy-to-understand BUZZFEED™ slideshows. It's great, because not only do you get the latest content from other websites with BUZZFEED™ captions added onto it, you also get to hear that delightful clicking noise your mouse makes, again and again!

Just make sure to visit all of the BUZZFEED™ links on Fark. You won't miss them, because there's a lot of them!

Sincerely,

Drew

P.S. BUZZFEED™

Gaseous Anomaly: thatboyoverthere: J. Frank Parnell: Ok, these have to be made up. Anti-depressants don't make people happy and optimistic. They remove the lows and the highs.

You're thinking of Bipolar medication. Anti-Depresseants just keep you from falling into the pit of self-loathing and hate.

The best analogy I've seen is that depression is like wearing "shiat-colored glasses", and taking antidepressants is like removing them.

They certainly don't make one "artificially" happy - we have a name for that condition: stoned. If they could get people stoned they'd have street value, and they don't.


When I was trying to find the right medication combo for myself my dr. introduced me to Prozac. What an unmitigated disaster. I went from suicidal to so happy and full of energy I would come home, make dinner do all the dishes get the kids and wife to bed, go out and ride my bike or play basketball til 3am, sleep two hours and get up at 5 or 6 to do it all over again. Everyone I knew was at the very least slightly frightened of me. 2 weeks later I gave it up to try something else thank god. I'm not even sure if I stayed on them the whole 14 days it is suggested to see if they're going to work at all. The whole time is a blur to me.

Lord Dimwit: My wife and I had a conversation/thought experiment about this.

First question: Say I was only nice to be around when I was drinking alcohol. I went to a doctor and he monitored my liver functions and enzymes and agreed that I was under less stress and a nicer person to be around when I had three or four beers a day. I don't drive or operate heavy machinery, and my work output is better or at least unaffected. Question: Is that okay, or not? If not, how is it fundamentally different from being on psychoactive drugs? What if instead of alcohol, I were a functional drug addict on something harsher than alcohol?


My sister is a psychologist.  She's told my wife and I that we need to drink more.  Seriously.

I totally agree with your extreme example.  Many of these people are psychophrenic.  Meds for psychophrenics are known to work pretty well.

But at the same time, many doctors treat depression ONLY with meds.  And instantly get someone on them, without considering non-medication therapy.

This is my experience, at least.

Especially situational depression (no history of depression until a loved one dies, for example).  In my not-being-a-doctor opinion, it seems non-medication therapy is a better road to go down.

I understand that you don't have anybody to hang out with because you MURDERED all the good Jedi as children and you're still the most hated man in 200 star systems and all, but you've gotta pick up a hobby other than gardening and watching TV.

Its the colder calculating angry bitter mike and damnit if i don't love that guy. The shiat coloured glasses are more like honest reality glasses and to be perfectly honest life is kind of depressing and horrifying. I need a cynical anvil on which to smash the rosy colored lies our society tries to sell every hour of every day.

Those 2 episodes of southpark with all the crap pissed me off. Stan Marsh wasn't wrong when he saw everything as shiat. IT WAS shiat.  As Socrates said "there are no evil truths"...

You cant tell me i shouldn't be bothered by the problems i see in the world. Nobody got anywhere by ignoring the man behind the curtain and blindly following wizards orders.

I think you ought to know I'm feeling just fine these days.  Doing great!  Yep, job's doing well, got promoted, politics are not my personal problems, I like people.  Life... let me tell you about life.  It's good to be alive....

WTF, Marvin?  You USED to be COOL, man... you've changed.

The Snow Dog: I've been depressed for years. I don't have "highs". I have rare periods of "not low" when I distract myself with something or other. If you have highs and lows you're probably more bipolar--as opposed to just depressed.


Keep trying different antidepressants.  I spent years cycling through different ones (my records list ten tried) before finding one that worked for me.
