The only reason I don't like that Piece place is because I've seen pictures of Rick Nielson eating there

He's the co-owner. :shrug:

Thought I saw something about that in the past, but my google search abilities failed me when looking for it today.

Never eating there again

Oh, and I blame Abe and his nosy in laws. If he comes back now, it will be even more obvious that this was his doing.

What, the Gee Spot thing?

Trying to help my wife deal with crippling depression is the hardest thing I've ever done. It's like trying to paddle a boat with a tennis racket. Everything you say and do can make all the sense in the world and seem like it should make a difference, but you end up exhausted, frustrated and in the same spot while the boat keeps sinking.

damn.

I'd be willing to bet wheaties on a dollar that what you're doing IS making a difference, even if the boat doesn't seem to be going anywhere from your perspective.

sorry you're having to deal with it.

As someone who was recently on the other side of this, everything you do helps, even if it doesn't produce immediate results.

There were days when my wife would single handendly keep my head above water all while I looked like I was flailing down.

Its hard, but she can make it through. I'm assuming she's on medication. If not, get that taken care of ASAP.

Chicago Esthetician's Uncle had to drop out of the Burgeramam Four line-up this year. The rhythm bowed psaltery player was diagnosed with autopriapism.

Needed more alliteration.

She's actually transitioning from one medication that the doctor said wasn't working anymore (clearly) to Lexapro. The doctor said the transition would be hard and it definitely has been. She's starting to see a therapist tonight. I'm hoping they start to make a difference soon because right now she has given up. She's lost all hope. It's totally heartbreaking to see.

Look, we survived minivan chat, apple chat, scarf chat, pizza topping chat, pizza oven chat, cat chat, scat chat, scout chat and scores of chat that everybody whined about and nobody found interesting, yet helped propel GMTAN to the largest, greatest thread in FBG history. We will survive this.

We survived the loss of loved ones, the end of relationships, the heartbreak of parenting, the genocide of poultry, the jailing of the innocent, sober Febuarys (plural), countless moves, job loss, Imp implosions, rigged squares contests, several SNOWMAGEDDONS!!!!111juan, Astros baseball, 80% of 10% of us contracting STDs and we survived the revelation that Kev's hair is neither magical nor from outerspace. We will survive this.

We have endured despite the complaints over the evolution of the thread and the many directions the thread has forked over the years. We have battled and won against the board's worst trolls who tried with all their trollish might to derail our community - our family - and failed, leaving with their tails tucked behind their trollish legs, which on their best day make Fuller's look like Lindsey Vonn's. We have fought and reconciled countless times and are far stronger because of it. We will survive this.

So bring to me your cabbage chat, your coffee chat, your office SUPPLIES!!! chat. Lay your cell phone chat upon me, I am your ears and your eyes. Bring me your yardwork chat, astrology chat and chat about your gout. That is why we here. Tell me about Destiney, Knuckles, 23 year old sex starved co workers and Sin. Share your best Gusterian works of literature about your adventures in kayaking, hiking trips to Vegas and how you spent the weekend shopping for mattresses for your Ukrainian ex-lover. This thread is about nothing and everything and I vow to read it all, even the posts by Cosjobs that he makes on his phone after 2am that cause brain bleeding. I will click on every stupid cat gif by Tanner, read every HOA meeting recap by K4 (with a General Murmer of Agreement, natch), continue to side with Frosty in the "Tre is the meanest mean ever" feuds, giggle every time Mr. Pack quotes a post from six weeks ago, envy Bentley's life, marvel at Sacamno's recaps, pretend to care about SLB's local radio podcasts that I have no idea what is going on, root for UH to keep kicking cancer in the balls, encourage YRS to keep drinking and reproducing, hope bostonfred continues to interpret dreams with Freudian fanaticism and pray that Shuke keeps making videos in the room of his house dedicated to creepy dolls. I will periodically wear my hat on backwards (even though Hat has been rather dickish to me), think of Ninja the few times I ride a bike and Hack whenever I drink a beer that tastes like pine needles. Every time I pass a piece of puzzling artwork I don't understand I'll think of Annoyong. I'll think of Bogie when I hear Boogie, Heckman when I play Hangman and Disco Stu every time the Dos Equis commercial is on TV. Why? BECAUSE WE ARE FAMILY. And no board upgrade nor jealous, power happy moderator is going to kill what we do best: Survive and thrive, baby, like Stryker landing a plane against all odds.

Kill me again when we reach 5000 pages and more page views than Pickle's has advanced degrees and we'll rise from the ashes yet again. We rock AND we roll. And if I left anybody out above, please accept my El Floppo Limp Ditka on having a brain like an Idiot Boxer. Like in-season fantasy football trades, it is too tedious to remember all the valuable posters who made GMTAN 1.0 the thread with the most Tremendous Upside in the history of magic football message board lore.

While we might have won the unlimited likes battle, the war is not over. Starting with GM's wonderfully penned Manifesto, it's now time to start the battle for the ability to like the same post multiple times.

Wow, an actual meaningful post. I'm on Lexapro myself for depression. I've been on several medications over the years and it's the best one I've found yet. Good luck to your wife, and to you for having to deal with her.

ETA: there are sexual side effects to it. In my case it was delayed orgasm which, ahem, didn't create a problem in my life. I consider it a benefit. Your wife, though, may not be of the same mindset.
