    I used to do Adderal and Zyprexa, topped it off with some wellbutrin. Still a smoker too. Smoked while on wellbutrin. Go figure.

    Being in the psychology field, I think its great that you take your meds. Most people are embarrassed about taking them. I think its dumb not to take them. If you are diabetic, you take insulin. If you are depressed, you take a SSRI.

    I used to take Zyprexa back in Middle School, White. It didn't work for me. In the two month period that I took it, I gained about 50 lbs, got suspended from school, and got talked to by numerous cops because of the theft I was commiting (Money and other things). The end result of this was that I was admitted to a Psych Ward to "Detox". Worst two months of my life and I still don't understand why I acted the way I did after all these years.

    I don't have Schizophrenia, though. I have Chronic Depression , ADHD, and something called "Non-Verbal Learning Disorder". I take Geodon and Adderall for those, and I've been on them for a very long time now, and they work great for me.

    Guess meds work different for different people. I'd never take Zyprexa again myself. Glad it's working for you, though.

    If you want a great scary game, try Amnesia: The Dark Descent! It's very atmospheric and fun.

    BF2 was the only game I could think of being from 2005. I've had the "I can't play this it's so crappy looking" happen to me but not with a game that looks like F.E.A.R. Yet, I've even gotten passed it. Perhaps it's because I played the game back and the day, but games like Red Fraction 2, Renegade, Morrowind. While I don't spend a load of time on them these days, hold the weeks on Renegade a few months ago but that was computer limitations. Personally, I find Left 4 Dead 1 to have equal perhaps a whee bit better graphics. Granted it's a [limited] multiplayer game so perhaps you will view it as an orange. DooM 3, with my limited experience, appeared equal to F.E.A.R. and Half Life 2 I would agree is better.

    BF2 is a whole other type of game though. The graphics can't be as good as a standalone single player game for the sheer fact that is incredibly intensive on a computer when you have to render in 63 other moving players with projectiles being modeled everywhere. That being said, 2142 on High settings was a sight to behold. I'm sure BC2 is something else, too.

    Think of Crysis though. Amazing looking game (sucky AI though ). You go to the multiplayer and things are toned down. Same settings but lower quality. It still looks good but without all of the bells and whistles. It's my reasoning as to why you can't compare a multiplayer game to a single player game in terms of graphics. The are both intensive, but in different ways. Apples to oranges.

    I never got into the expantions, but I have to say I disagree with you finding of poor graphics. I would consider them better then BF 2 even though the game play is completely different. Great game for a laptop.

    High settings since the system requirements are pretty low. I still appreciate the LOD for shadows that the game had, but the rest was just blah. I also tried playing the expansions, but they're locked in at 4:3 monitor resolutions. I couldn't stand the stretched figures.

    Sub-par! What settings where you playing at? Yea, it's no Crysis but as good as Doom 3, which is still nothing like revisiting Morrowind or BF V.

    Keep the positive attitude! Similar to SoySoldier, my educational interests lie in psychology as I am currently working on my Master's in Health Psychology. The very fact that you are outspoken about this means that you are doing what you should be doing. Remember to keep the ones you love close as I'm sure the therapists have said, social support is a significant coping mechanism. Keep posting with updates! It's just another way to see yourself improving in writing

    Well written and stay strong. On a side note this song always pops into my head when I see your name:

    Last night a DJ saved my life
    Last night a DJ saved my life, yeah
    'Cause I was sittin' there bored to death
    And in just one breath, he said

    This sounds like my journey with mental illness...except that you're recovering! Appropriate that I should log in here now~! Hope things continue to look up!

    This is a great blog post, White. You know I have an interest (and schooling) in things neurological and psychological, so I have a little understanding (from an outsider's perspective) of this affliction and from what I have seen you have a lot of strength to come out on top like this; kudos.

    Again, great writing here.

    You are a born storyteller, White. It's always good getting a look inside your life with these blogs and the stories definitely get deep. It flows really well and is very interesting. Thanks for giving us a look inside another person's life. It sounds like you've got a great mind for science, too, and have a great future ahead of you.
