I don’t know what to do now…

written () ago

Backstory: The building I work in has commercial space on the ground floor and apartments up above. My company was hired in part to be the super for the building. The building has never been properly maintained in the past 100 yrs. And there is absolutely structural damage. (Our company did what we could, but we didn’t have the budget to do much more than keep the apartments operational.) The building is comprised of 4 different adjoining sections.


Troubling times for us here at Help-QA

It has been brought to my attention that there are people, members of our community, that don’t feel safe here.


Depression…

written () ago

As many of you know, I have battled with depression for many years. The past two years or so I had been managing it well. The doctor even agreed with me, and I have been off meds now for about 6 months.


Heroes

written () ago

So today while I was out doing a delivery, I was listening to the radio, and they were talking about heroes… and more specifically they were asking people who their childhood heroes were/are.


I want to play Dungeons & Dragons but I want to be the Characters and the DM… I’m told that is called writing a book!

I think I'm in trouble.

My advice to you is to go and talk to your doctor right away.

Vomiting blood is never a good thing.

Please go and get checked out.

Is emotional cheating just as bad as physical cheating or not as bad?

You should tell him how you feel. Good relationships are built on the trinity of: Trust, Communication, and Mutual Respect. This is true for all relationships whether romantic, professional, familial, fraternal, etc. And if one pillar is missing then the relationship is going to be miserable. If more than one is missing the relationship is almost guaranteed to fail

So, I'm looking for an editor for my second book and I was wondering if someone here might be interested?

Why use an editor when you already are an editor for a local paper??

As much as I can edit, you always need someone else to edit your own work. 😄

I have autism (Aspergers) and dyspraxia and don't know what jobs I can do and feel like a drain to society.

I too am in the process of being diagnosed with Aspergers. And have gone through a similar struggle finding a job. I completely understand the frustrations you are feeling. I still feel them too to a certain extent.

Just because you are different, does not mean that you are not 'normal.' And it is very important to remember that. Difference, does not mean that you are not 'normal.' Normal is just the setting on a dryer.

For me, like yourself, I just had to keep looking for the job that fit for me. After many years of searching, I became the Editor of a newspaper. That was my perfect fit. It allowed me to be heard by the many without having to interact with the many, and it allowed me to put my mind to use.

Consider something similar. People like us who have Asperger's typically have high intellect, and find it hard to socialize. As such the jobs that we thrive in are the ones that let us use our strengths and keep us in the background away from people.
If you could find a job as an author, or journalist covering local events. Something where you don't have to interact socially and just report the facts could be ideal.
Or if you are not the one for writing, then look for something where you can use your strengths.

In my many year search to find a good fitting job for me... I got severe depression. I hope that you don't have the same thing happen to you.

You may not be the exact same as everyone else, but that doesn't mean that you deserve any different then they do. If everyone was the same then the world would be a very dull place.

As Music=Life said: Don't give up, even when things are hard. You don't have to struggle with this alone. 😄

I can't bring myself to eat.

It seems like a long time, because in a crisis or even a difficult situation it is a long time. But that doesn't mean that it will be an insurmountable task to get to the appointment. :)

The BRAT diet might help, but that is more for easy digestion rather than the ability to get it down... That said it is probably a good place to start. If the bananas aren't doing the best then try applesauce. :)

My life is going really well.

This sounds like depression. And depression is so much more than being sad. It is the constant shadow weighing you down and hanging over your shoulder.

Hold onto the good things in life. Focus on them. You will get through this!

And if your feelings aren't changing or taking over, talk to your doctor.

There should be a law that if you are a politician, you're just not allowed to have any investments in anything.

One could not refuse a nomination, or choose not to do the job. If they did, then their property was sold anyway and added to the treasury, and they were imprisoned/executed.

I think we need a less extreme form of that.

The idea of registering for public service draft is interesting to me.

Serving your time essentially. That's cool.

Maybe we do need something less extreme, but you have to admit it would get the job done!

I've been trying listen to Congressional hearings lately.

@Rockster160 Lano's comments keep getting flagged. Is there something I am missing?
