It's funny how many of your stories and photos revolve around being drunk

Sigh... I was given a small sampling of anti-depressants but I kinda want to get over this myself, so hopefully I won't have to use them at all.
So sorry to hear that. I can't imagine what it must be like, but I hope you feel better. Don't worry about it all being in your head - think of it this way: it could very well be a chemical imbalance making you feel this way. That's physical and scientific, just like breaking a leg, and unlike breaking a leg, there is nothing you could have done to prevent it. Brains are funny things, and sometimes Hormone A just doesn't shake hands with Hormone B anymore, and then you can't feel happy. Or un-anxious. And thankfully, there are pills that can fix this, like a cast. And what the hell, I'll join PeeDee and make it a group hug.
