I really loved B5. Great depth and character growth over the arc. All the interconnections. Much better in many ways than the Trek series'. I got into Crusade as long as it lasted and was very disappointed when it was canceled.

I'm a compulsive reader. I read signs, postings cereal boxes anything with text if I don't have anything else to read. I can't remember not being able to read and I could read before I could tie my shoes. By the time I was five I had read the entirety of my parent's library, so it's not a big surpri...

I was identified as gifted in 5th grade and put in a special program for Educationally Handicapped Gifted students. For most of my life I thought that my difficulties came from being too smart for my own good. Average people didn't seem to have all the problems getting along that I did.

My God, I thought that I was the only one that wrote that way! I got a portable typewriter as a kid because I couldn't stand my handwriting. I started typing at a young age (5), but have always had peculiar handwriting. As it stands now, my write primarily in print (85%) with letters and snippets of...

Perfectionism put me in the hospital with severe depression twice about 10 years apart after nearly killing myself with overwork trying to achieve the impossible. The first time I had been promoted to a position where I didn't know what to do, there were no written procedures and nobody had time to ...

Deep Space Nine is by far my favorite of the trek series. Darker, fuller character development, deeper investigation of the species involved and conflict between the main characters. I'm a big B5 fan too. Was relieved when SciFi picked up the final year. I wrote a term paper on Chaos and Order becau...

For most of my life the character I most associated with was Spock. Later in life Data. The characters I've most wanted to be were Gary Hobson from Early Edition and Sam Beckett from Quantum Leap.

Yes, it's a great one. One of the few movies that makes me cry. That Stanley Kramer classic "Bless the Beasts and the Children" (which was faithful to Swarthout's novel) tells of 6 adolscent strangers who are sent to a summer camp (because their families don't want to deal with them). Initially, the...

Great for some, deadly for me. Everyone is unique and reacts to modification of their neurochemistry differently. Be cautious.

How bad is the anxiety? Have you discussed this with a therapist? Chemicals can help, but you need to be careful. Everyone's neurochemistry is unique and I suffer a reverse reaction to Zoloft, anxiety and depression increases. For others it is a miracle drug. I recommend exploring non-chemical treat...

While I've found some drugs to be lifesavers, others can make things much worse. I recommend being very careful when taking any brain altering drug. These drugs are prescribed based on studies where the desired effect is seen in the majority of test subjects, but everyone's neurochemistry is unique....

Hellish would be how I'd describe my experiences with SSRIs. On the other hand, I've had very good experiences with SSNRIs. Cymbalta has been a godsend. It all depends on your unique neurochemistry.
