The DIY Couturier has some great posts on depression and the Happy Culture
, as well answering the Happy Ignorant
. I'm fighting mine again, and it got pretty bleak just a day or two ago. It reminds me of the ignorant remarks I've gotten over the years from healthcare folks, like the nurse practitioner who told me cheerily, without inquiring as to my current level of exercise, that if I just exercised 30 min three times a week, my libido would come back in no time. Or the shrink that looked past what I was telling her about my experience with anorgasm on anti-depressants and kept suggesting that I try various types of vibrators. Gah.
I digress. I do that a lot lately.
Either way, I'm working it out, and going to give Yeshe's Success Cleanse
a go, since she targets more than just eating and says she can easily work with me on my various health bits for the food. This Saturday is the start (and she does have a couple of openings still, I promised her I'd mention that.) Part of my challenge is that she is one of the over-the-top Happy Folks, and sometimes the Wheee! Spiritual/Love! Positivity! grates on my nerves, but I need to face this and challenge myself to meet it somewhere in the middle.
Got this message on a bhuz thread, and as a comment to my entry about my zils, so basically there is no more panic, but I'm still glad I jumped in got mine before the changeover.
Officially on behalf of Mr. Harry Saroyan and Saroyan Cymbals I would like to address the doubts and fears being expressed online regarding the future of Saroyan Zills and their availability for professionals and enthusiast in the music and dance industries. After 45 years as the leader in production, Harry has decided to turn over the reins of Saroyan Mastercrafts, and is currently securing new ownership for Saroyan Cymbals… In the mean time have no fear, Harry’s zills will again be available for purchase online (Saroyan Cymbals) on June 15, 2013 and will continue to be produced to meet the high demand for quality zills for many, many years to come. It is very important to Harry that his strict guidelines for superiority and craftsmanship are maintained, and he gives his personal promise that his fans will be very pleased with his successor. In the intervening time please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns… Sincerely, Heather Lint, Netreva Inc. c/o Saroyan Mastercrafts
