Thank you, Andrea, for sharing so much of your life with us!!! The strength it must take for you to be so open is unfathomable to me (you're right, that pussy is strong). I have my own share of shit and have a voice in my head telling me I'm overreacting and am weak and that anyone else in my shoes would have been okay. It's comforting for me to hear you speak of similar experiences. I've been a supporter for a while but this episode guaranteed an Andrea Allan fan for life.

Everyone ranted about Spooky being some wild-child, free-spirit weirdo you goofy fuck - Keith and Chemda most of all - why you singling out The Lubinator?

Sounds to me like someone has a little crush and got a little jealous hearing Emily talk about Spooky being a dimepiece.

Even if I was interested, I'd be wary of complimenting her. Right after objectifying Spooky, she starts a #MeToo rant, basically painting all men as potential rapists (except the ones she wants to fuck).

My experience

Just a thought on the search for improved mental wellbeing.
Dr and Optical neurologist thought I was “crazy” or “stressed.” Long story short, Dr “you are fine but take this and go for MRI.” A day later Dr calls back instead of waiting weeks for an appointment he wants to see me ASAP. He apologizes as it appeared it was stress because I broke down trying to read the eye chart. Letters would appear then disappear. Then he told me my MRI looks like a stroke victim. At the end the day all the brain lesions were from Multiple Sclerosis.
Moral of the story is that those emotional and physical symptoms can’t fix via talk, therapy. My “emotional liability” caused by brain lesions. Don’t shy away from drugs to improve the quality of your life.

Not that group talk and therapy is not useful. But as a former crazy health nut and athlete, I quickly learned that using medication makes daily life manageable. I did MS group talk and is very useful, and each MS experience is unique. Don’t know why I lied on the survey about group talk and therapy.

At work, fortune 200 company, they sent me home and forced to see a shrink for one visit but refused additional visits. It was 100% of the MS lesions impacting my emotions forcing the crying over a simple discussion. I was a relatively high-level employee with lots of goodwill from my work. Hence, they didn’t seek to remove me. My thought, group meetings are more informative.

Again I was LUCKY to have an MRI to give me access to drugs. All the talk would not have helped me function. So, what I'm saying don't blame yourself thinking you're not mentally healthy. Just because you don't have medical or medical community have not identified the nuclear issue. Take drugs to improve the quality of your life and see if that helps.

BTW, I've been forced to leave my work losing big $$$ and career that I spent years creating via college, self-study, experience to be on SSI. This even with the monthly infusions, medications. But again my strong advice is to explore pharma as a means to improve your productivity/well being.

My uninformed opinion, Andrea has organic issues, and it’s not all in your head, but it could be in your head from physical changes.
