    When I was very stressed in a job that was breaking my state of mind in every way I was relaxing in the evening with wine and it led to a cycle of crap sleep making the next day worse but the job was so horrid that it was the only way I had available to cope. It would have been much better to have a joint or two as the hangover from that is much more acceptable. Not really that healthy either way though.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    The gf and I were watching Friends for some reason. She seemed to be enjoying it. A scene causes her to laugh. All of a sudden her laughter turns into hysterical crying. Didn't last long (about a minute) and she's fine now, less than 5 minutes later.

    Needless to say, it freaked me out. She does generally have anxiety, and difficulty suppressing her emotions, and cries easily, but this was a different order of magnitude altogether.

    I asked her about it and made sure she was ok, and she said it happens to her a lot and she doesn't think much of it. Which is weird.

    Does this sound like something she should seek counselling for? Being at the mercy of unpredictable and tempestuous emotions like that doesn't sound healthy to me.

    It sounds like she was just being a woman, tbh.

    Maybe she's pregnant. That's how we knew to check the second time around - my wife burst into tears because she didn't know what she wanted for her tea.

    So either a) all women are insane, b) she's pregnant, or c) she has psychological issues. Yay

    Picking up a pregnancy test tomorrow.

    I'm surprised no-one has recommended the usual EG therapy for GF-related issues.

    Geographic tongue. Anyone ever heard of this? Tis grim. I've had it for a few years now, and with no cure it looks like I'll have it forever. A knock-on of this means it's virtually impossible to find a woman who doesn't want to get as far away from me as possible whenever I get to know one well enough for me to risk sharing it.

    So, does anyone have any ideas on what might help cope with depression caused by this? I don't know if I should use that word as other people probably have much worse problems, but I'm struggling to even get out of bed for work these days tbh. I mean, if all I have ahead is 40 years of crushing boredom at work, and horrendous loneliness at home, what's the point?

    Probably need to give myself a slap and mtfu yes?

    A guy in our class had it and everyone said it was because he had aids.

    But, yeah, if people with the bottom half of their bodies missing and midgets can get reasonable looking birds, im sure having a tongue that looks like its covered in a sheeps gut cant be too much of a hill to climb.

    I had to google that, never heard of it before.

    Easy answer invest in a freezer full of red popsicles. (Ice lolly)

    Nor I. Does brushing your tongue disguise the variation?

    Never heard of that one before and I can see how it can make dating difficult. Have you tried hunting around the internet for some kind of support forum for the condition or failing that set one up?

    Not only could you find something that might help with the condition, but there might be some women who with the condition themselves aren't going to be fussed by you having it. According to WebMD (yes that well of truth) it is more common in women, so go get'em.

    @geeza2020 Have you been diagnosed with that? Just wondered as my tongue went brown and looked really disgusted but I found out it was something in my diet. It was red wine for me. Does a tongue scrapper help? That did for me though I admit what I had looks nowhere near as bad. Chewing pineapple also helped.

    If it's non contagious, why do you have to share it?

    If a girl had that condition and she didn't feel the need to disclose it, it wouldn't bother me in the slightest.

    Then your tongues can meet like geographic plates.

    Hey, made another thread here http://www.eurogamer.net/forum/thread/269500#latest-post by mistake.

    Amazing how many people suffer from this crap. Anybody been to CBT sessions?

    yep

    had personcentred' then a breakdown last year followed by highdose tabs & cbt

    beinge married to a counsellor also helps....;)

    just been reading the posts on the other thread....get onto the gp. & youll either be referred for group or individual cbt depending on the cause....takes a while but worth it...

    also, while you're waiting, get the 'little workbook of cbt' from amazon....helps explain a few things and gives things to do while waiting for the appt...

    Here. It really helped. Mindfulness is a wonderful thing. I can also recommend Andy Puddiscombe's Headspace for some great non-religious (or culty) meditative techniques.

    I have GAD since I was quite young but only really managed to get it diagnosed a few years back. Triggers tend to be caffeine and stress related. Contacting my local IAPT and having CBT I realised that the techniques my therapist taught were very similar to what I found in Headspace (actually, pretty identical).

    Knowing what's wrong with you is half the battle, I found. I've had all sorts of medical tests (including an endoscopy) and have been in and out of hospital at various times in my life for extreme anxiety. Nowadays I know how to cope - panic attacks are really rare, I've dropped all my safety measures (used to carry a packet of mints around everywhere to calm me down) and although I get the occasional bout (insomnia isn't fun) I find I can cope. All the advice given in your other thread is good; take it. :)
