Default What is it like to be emotionally unstable with depression?

It sucks. I can't hold a job because of it.
My apologies to the forum for being as I am.

I am not name calling anyone.
I am sorry if you think such.
I have trouble enough keeping myself together.

I realize your having a hard time, but you must realize that we're just a bunch of geeks/nerds volunteering our spare time.. I can't speak for the others, but I'm not a not psychologist and I'm certainly no therapist.

Not overly comfortable sharing this, but I have a sibling with bipolar disorder/depression and she able to cope with her disability.

If you enjoy using BSD, perhaps you should avoid the social/community aspects and try obtaining some first hand experience?

I started out an avid lurker on the mailing lists and forums, some intense threads show up from time to time but it's not worth adding emotions to something purely technical. If you are unable to compose a rational/logical response to something, close your MUA. Think about it for a bit, attempt to research the issue and if you can't grasp it immediately, come back to it at some future date. If it comes up again you'll be able to stay cool and collected and share what you learned.

I'm assuming you're Mr-Biscuit? is that correct?

Yes, it's me.
I'll probably need to up my dosage soon or get another medication. The second is more likely to happen than the first. I enjoy using the BSD systems; however, rI'm not going to know when I will become unstable. Called a brother of mine a few times today. Told him that I am sorry. I told him to go away. I told him to call me back.
I spazzed on the job recently when people joked with me and became overly emotional.

Oh, good news. I saw the inside of Perdue's data center. A few Z series with amd64/i386 boxes with AIX running the show. Nice.

I don't want to be excused because of how I am.

With the last private message, I've realized what others think of me. Once I had fear that people believed I was worthles and no one liked me. My fears are relieved because I know that many do not like me, despise me, and are just tolerant as a way of saying, "Go to Hell!"

I regret closing my account yet I am glad I did because people were finally honest with me.

Do I enjoy this forum? Yes.
Do I enjoy playing with the systems and trying to help out with different projects? You betcha
Am I ever going to be stable enough to function normally? I doubt it.

I think I do a good job setting up tutorials for the new user. maybe.

I once tried sending a bug report to God. Never received a reply

Other than that, what BSDFan said pretty much sums up the situation.
