A lot of the worthlessness does stem from people telling me how wrong I am about animal rights.
Please come to your senses and realize you are in no fit state to be helping others, including animals. If not still doing this I'm sure you are tempted to be helping animals even though at this moment you cannot be expected to do any good. None of which is a reflection on you, and so you must now take a well earned rest from AR, by the fact I'm concerned for you in your present state which will only make you more vulnerable to attack by others disagreeing with you on the subject of animals!... so tend to yourself first, and get better preferably with the MIMINAL amount of drug assistance as possible, like I thought you were going to do.

So you have a bad underpaid job, this does not make you worthless if you look at things objectively,
its just a very unfortunate cycle which life has presented to you thru sheer bad luck, as though life is telling something such as "you don't deserve any better" and you let this be said to yourself and you start to believe its your deserved fate to be in this negative unprosperous environment.
are worthless, it is only your perception caused by what goes on around you, and the unceasing reinforement that somehow says to you, you are worthless, but this is not true. You are just a victim of circumstance don't you see?
You cannot be to blame for that if conditions and odds are against you to stay well, and you are especially not to blame for your upbringing!!!

Please don't apologize
Instead simply accept that you are in need, and
besides you don't sound whiney.
BTW: I know totally nothing about drugs, since I've always denied myself the use of them GLADLY
and I hope you have the strength
to as well. Being on drugs now for you, maybe necessary, but just think of the day you'll be saying "I DONT NEED DRUGS; drugs need me!!!"......
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^In other words, drugs CAN BE the ILL, if taken in excess and the more dependant you become and so on.... so to prevent over-dependancy, perhaps what to do is cut down on the excess of useless or mediocre (non effective) drugs and use a heavier drug sparingly, and so broadly speaking, I blindly suggest (since I know nothing about drugs) not to make a cocktail of the damn drugs. COMMON SENSE TELL ME>> IF you really NEED[??] the heavier drug as a SHORT TERM recourse, at least cut out some of the unnecessary drugs first before accepting or attempting use of any knock-out remedial drug.
Feel free to PM me
even if only to say how badly or worthless things are. THIS IS REAL FOR YOU, SO YOU NEED NOT APOLOGIZE
