    Hey Buzz, another longtime OG here saying that YOU MATTER. What you're going through sounds horribly tough. Stay as strong as you can and don't do anything drastic. If it gets to be too much, just call 9-8-8. That will offer immediate relief as you move toward recovery. It is possible. There are higher powers around you. Much love, man.

    Buzz, I am sorry that life sucks right now.

    There’s a lot of good advice in here already from smart people, so i can’t help much. but if I appreciate your posts half a continent and behind a screen away, im sure that you have people around you that do too. talk to them. call a helpline. wake up early and go get some exercise.

    there’s a lot of good shit that’s out there, it just gets covered in bs a lot.

    if the ratio hasn’t been coming up in your favor lately maybe it just means your due?

    Buzz, reach out to old core friends. Even if "bridges were burned" they can be rebuilt. Time heals a lot of that shit amongst good friends. It sounds like you could use the people that know you best.

    I'm sending positive vibes your way.

    Couple things that can help as a daily practice. I'm 55 and have been going through some of the same shit.

    This helps you get out of your head and into the present.

    Go for a walk and....

    Notice 5 different things; their color, shape, texture.

    Listen and note 5 different sounds.

    Close your eyes and take a deep breath. What does it smell like?

    Repeat the above throughout the walk.


    Get a bird feeder and seed. Something about feeding birds gave me a glimmer of hope when I felt down.

    Put on some good good music and cook some food from a favorite recipe.

    Some ideas that helped me get through, and continue to help.

    This reminded me of my pet/wild bird. When I split firewood with my axe the bark falls off and sometimes little larvae fall out. This bird knows the sound of my axe and visits me. It sits a few feet off to the side and watches for its food to fall. When it does, I take a step back and let it into the space to munch. Often it gets so fat it can't fly away and it just sits and sleeps in my garden for a few hours. It's cute as hell. This has been going on for two or three years now.

    Keep your head up, Buzz. Sometimes that's all you've got. But it's still something. And something is more than nothing, even if it's only a little.

    Do yourself a favor, Dan, and delete the posts you made in this thread.

    Love you, Ron.

    When you wake up tomorrow, remember this: Put down the booze for good. I never drank that regularly, but man, even a small amount can have a profound effect on your mental health. I don't drink at all anymore--almost entirely because of it's effect on my mental health at any dose. For me, even a glass of whiskey or a couple light beers would result in some sort of anxiety or morose the next day. And again, I was never a heavy drinker but I LOVE Irish whiskey.

    This would be a meaningful and almost guaranteed improvement and a great first step towards breaking through.

    Here's to tomorrow and the day after that!

    tgapp, I hope we cross paths one day, 'cause this, along with all of your other selfless acts, are something to be admired; drinks on me. Thanks for looking out for one of our own.

    I think we live pretty close to each other and we've met IRL once, (red bike pedals?) Feel free to hit me up if you ever want to unload or just chat in person. You seem to have raised some pretty decent kids in this weird East Bench world. I'd love to know how you kept them centered. Mine are getting to the age where I really have to think three moves ahead when they ask me a serious complex question. I'd love some real dad advice.

    Buzz, every damn time I see your avatar, I imagine an entire block, both sides of the street, totally dark…with a wildly flaming couch on each porch and lawn. Red cups strewn everywhere, semi- naked kids gettin’ it on in the shadows.

    Please don’t take that away from me.

    Buzzworthy- please hang in there.

    You don’t know me at all, but I certainly remember your screen name from when I first started lurking here a long time ago. I care about you along with everyone else posting here.

    From my own experience, giving up alcohol was huge for me and my overall mental wellbeing. Might be worth a go. I don’t know. Some micro ( and macro) dosing also helped me around that time and continues to somewhat frequently. But I’m no medical professional, although a reset can do wonders IME.

    Your family needs you even if you don’t feel that way. You’re still here for a reason. Lotta good suggestions in this thread.

    Tgapp and crew- nicely done. Amazing people.
