Dear Mike,

When you think about killing yourself for some years and already took first steps, you can as well try meds.
It doesn't matter where you think your depression came from.
What can happen? The meds might not work.
So you are exactly where you are now.
Or they work, and you stop thinking about suicide.

When you are dead it doesn't matter if you tried meds or not. You can have it written on your grave, but why?
Ahhhhhh. Ahh. Hrrrr.

Really liked Mike. I too experience suicidal mood swings fairly regularly as a result of childhood experiences.

I can manage it now using yogic breathing, but used Lithium Orotate to help get stable. One ends up taking far less elemental lithium than is taken by pharmaceutical prescription (on the order of 10-15 mg daily). It doesn't produce the same elation or impairment that a pharmaceutical anti-depressant might or anywhere near the serious side effects of a clinical mood stabaliser. Prescribed medications really fucked me up.

In fact, supplementation with small amounts of lithium may have neuro-protective effects. One should not exceed the recommended dosage without consulting a doctor for kidney testing.

It's worth considering. I'll certainly consider taking it again when I expect upcoming stressors.

For liability reasons, nothing in this post should be interpreted as medical advice. It is all personal opinion.

Good luck.

I totally thought that because this was a play that the third act was weird and hard to follow cuz this was written to be a vague, black box, one set thing where characters disappearing and long silences would be more powerful. No one I talked to would hear of it because "this movie is perfect!" Thank god for KATG, where people understand me

Even while crying because I empathized with Jaron I was fucking pissed at how vague their relationship was left. Not even their relationship, just what the fuck did Kevin even feel for him. The whole cooking and drinking scene was flirty AF and then they get back to Kevin's place and he becomes aloof and cold. I HATED IT. I don't need them to have sex but I feel like not cementing Kevin's feelings was just as much of a cocktease ending as Luke Cage going to jail at the end of the season. If he's gay-ish and wants to fuck Jaron that's great, if he's straight now but still can show physical love (with a hug) then that's equally as great. MAKE A DAMNED CHOICE

People have a weird misconception of the south.

Yes, there are plenty of racist white people with Confederate flags.

But, also 60% of African Americans live in the south and that number is growing as more people move back home. (Aka where their family lived before the great migration)

So if you have a show in a racist seemingly all white town, the next town over is likely all black. Sometimes literally on the other side of the railroad tracks.

You can look at the voting demographics broken down by county to get a good idea of the area.

So when you go to plan your show at the happening club, take a second, and check if there's a club across the railroad tracks.

Oh no, by all means, take racist white people's money while making them uncomfortable.

But after the show is done, they aint gotta stick around. There is likely a black side of town close by that they will feel more comfortable staying in.

Or like you are suggesting, book gigs in the black/minority side of town.

I've heard stories of black entertainers being uncomfortable staying in bed and breakfasts in an almost all white town that is literally one short bridge away from my medium-sized city, which is 52% black and 40something% white with a solid south asian population with strong cultural ties.

I think the problem is people don't think there is a such thing as diversity in the south so they just deal with the discomfort.
