So feeling sorry for yourself and perpetuating your lifestyle with wrong choices are accepted because you are imbalanced? I live with a depressive wife. I watch how she carries on her life and her choices. I watch her moods and where she is the most comfortable. She isn't happy unless she is getting pity from somebody. Those are self made choices to stay in misery. Doctors have told her how to get a grip on her emotions and she denies their opinions or flat labels it as lies just to take the money.
Yeah I'm hard on the topic because I lived under that lifestyle myself. Thank you military for giving me the toughness it took for me to see how foolish my choices were and not caving in to the pity party mentality I felt I deserved because of life's unfair knockdowns.
If you know you have problems, you also know the signs and what you could do if you were so inclined to minimize the impact on your daily life. It takes an effort from you to change. Life won't.
