I'm having a pretty good time. I don't know if I mentioned it, but I feel I don't have a "mood" disorder any more. It feels psychodynamic in nature, but I don't think it would have happened so fast without the trimipramine (Surmontil). I think the drug may have facilitated psychological changes. I have achieved positive thinking, and often think to myself that things are good now, or that things are going my way.

I still have residual symptoms in the form of apathy and cognitive impairment. The apathy bothers me more than the mood did.

Would you guys go to accupuncture? It does seem to help depression, but Corona does not.

I will have to do Psychotherapy online is what I meant. What is psychodynamic change through a med? the drug helped you process stuff? Maybe you did that by yourself? I was having an ok time until yesterday.

Right. Where can you find such a service? At an affordable price?

Something like that yes. I feel it made psychodynamic change happen faster. My feeling better/worse had no temporal relationship with when I took a dose of the drug. However, the progress happened with a dose of 100 mg, but not with 50 mg. I also noticed some positive developments with only 25 mg, whereas nothing in interesting seemed to happen with 50 mg.

its a bit tough right now, we're having to stay home or not get near too many crowds because the virus is spreading. I've never seen like this before, this is definitely a history event, but anyways, for now most restaurants are closed, were i live, some are open, but have certain hours, and many business, small business are gonna have a hard time. It's a global pandemic, not sure when the vaccine will be ready, but definitely don't this lightly. Maybe in other countries where its not effected, they don't even know whats going on. I don't know from this point if it will get worse, or a vaccine will be found, hopefully for the best. i heard about it a long time ago, but i never thought it would enter into the US and spread this quickly, i thought it was gonna be ebola virus incident, which was contained. This is global pandemic. I just hope make it through this and the economy would not be hurt anymore. I don't even know what to do, even after itts over, i have no idea where my life is gonna go. Work i've done online, projects and giving advice and insight. But that's not a career or money income. At least it could be reached and be benefiting to people. Anyways, let's just hope the vaccine will come soon, and the worst with martial law being indicated. We just have to follow the guidelines we are told until this is over.

oh no no....its real, we've had deaths in the US and total deaths right now global are 9,855 people. Right now there 13, 060 people in the US with it. Alot of people have said its just a form of a bad flu, it was told for a long time, but deaths and quarantine camps have been set up. I don't know where you are right now, but this website will give exact details about the virus outbreak.

everytime i turn on the news, someone in my area has a new case, they have shut down business, schools, in the US. That is the first time in history we have ever done this. I thought it was gonna be a ebola virus incident and be contained, no it exploded in infections around the country. But on the good side, there alot of people who have recovered from it.

The virus holds the mirror up to us. No food or much at all in Australian shops. In Japan everything is normal but quiet. I heard about one man in a garage with 17,000 bottles of hand sanitiser. We were told that there was no such thing as society. Well! I don't care about my safety, though I look after it. I wouldn't mind a cull of the boomers.

> Yeah, it's strange. I've sent some friends emails and haven't heard back. Usually they get back to me ASAP. Strange...people shouldn't be "too busy".

My hunch is people are preoccupied.

We have a mandatory statewide 'shelter in place' order.

Tonight I took some Aleve for some wicked aches. (I have fibromyalgia.) That was before realizing I'm running a temp :/

So they might shut everything down on Saturday. People are too stupid. They get close to you and corner you in on a wall... Young people make Corona parties.

What is a cull of the boomers? Im not a native speaker.

I really liked low dose trimipramine, for sleep really.

Yeah well, that wasn't very helpful of me.

The year started out with many many people seeking refuge on the beaches from the fires after 30 years of dangerous politics, with a completely inadequate response, and now this, showing the shortcomings of quite a few things (economics, politics, people).

My son is careful to remind me that's not as simple as that. I am, of course, a boomer.

Strange, there being nothing in the shops at home.

It didn't help me unfortunately. Low dose.

Boomer is the name for the generation born after the war through 1960.

It stopped being available in Australia.

Much better than the antihistamine tricyclics.

The situation in South America sounds really drastic. But they have reason, given their health services.

What a world we or whoever have made for ourselves.

The fires were intensely traumatic if or when you knew what they meant. Half of the remaining ancient forests gone in a month or so. A permanent and irremediable loss, the wonder of Australia. You can imagine how inadequate was the political response, none could have been adequate of course. Just a few months ago.
