If I don’t get a prescription for those new meds tomorrow I am going to scream.
Like FINALLY after years of being misdiagnosed as depressed when I just have a sub category of ADD that makes it hard to concentrate and get things done so it mimics the exhaustion and lack of concentration of depression, finally I’m getting a chance to get on something that might actually help.
That’s why the antidepressants made me depressed! Cause I wasn’t just missing serotonin. I had a dopamine issue as well. So when they fucked with the serotonin my dopamine got even lower.
Finally I know what could help and DO YOU KNOW HOW FUCKING FRUSTRATING IT HAS BEEN KNOWING THERE ARE MEDS OUT THERE THAT COULD HELP AND IVE BEEN FLAILING AROUND FOR 2 MONTHS WITH THE INSURANCE TRYING TO GET INTO A PSYCHIATRIST THAT WONT MISDIAGNOSE ME AGAIN WHILE STRUGGLING AGAINST THIS?!
I’m lucky I have my therapist to help vouche for me or else idk if I’d even have gotten this far.
If I don’t get those meds soon it’s not gonna be pretty. I can’t work or do anything that makes me fulfilled cause I can’t concentrate and that’s making my mood plummet. Also getting behind on things is only elevating my self loathing problem which is not helping my eating habits. Not to mention I’m also getting into really bad B/P cycles to try and regulate my mood cause nothing else works and it all just snowballs and its just really bad.
Best case scenario I walk out of there with a prescription for some Aderall or Ritalin or something and my life will start getting better.
Remeber that theory/HC AU of Mirai being the lovechild of Reigisa?
I wish to dispel the notion that women are “more emotional.” I don’t think we are. I think that the emotions women stereotypically express are what men call “emotions,” and the emotions that men typically express are somehow considered by men to be something else.
This is incorrect. Anger? EMOTION. Hate? EMOTION. Resorting to violence? EMOTIONAL OUTBURST. An irrational need to be correct when all the evidence is against you? Pretty sure that’s an emotion. Resorting to shouting really loudly when you don’t like the other person’s point of view? That’s called “being too emotional to engage in a rational discussion.”
Not only do I think men are at least as emotional as women, I think that these stereotypically male emotions are more damaging to rational dialogue than are stereotypically female emotions. A hurt, crying person can still listen, think, and speak. A shouting, angry person? That person is crapping all over meaningful discourse.” —

Actually this ties into the phenomenon known as Seconday Emotions. Everyone as individuals has emotions they’re more comfortable dealing with than others. So in order to handle really unpleasent ones, your body will switch it to the other. Usually anger is almost always a secondary emotion. You’re usually angry because it’s easier for you to feel mad than embarrassed or sad or jealous or scared.
This factors in because anger and hate and these typically “male” things are literally expressions of emotion that people are uncomfortable feeling in their true capacity. Because its easier/more acceptable to feel angry than sad or scared for males. Therefore its easier to deal with. Easier to feel angry and hit someone than feel sad or scared as a male.
It’s interesting once you learn the concepts to realize the emotions you think you’re feeling aren’t the ones you’re actually experiencing.
Shame is usually a secondary emotion of fear or angry. I know many many woman who are more comfortable experiencing shame than anything else.
Hence, secondary emotions.
I just want a valley girl to overhear a dude making fun of her for the way she talks and I want her to turn around with a very intelligent comment like, “Excuse me, but belittling the linguistic patterns of young women is like totally a hallmark of modern misogyny.”
