MENTAL ILLNESS: Off to get see if they’ll experiment on me.

Hey guys.  It’s a rough day for me here.  I have an appointment in 40 minutes to see if I’d be an appropriate test subject for an fMRI study dealing with clinical depression. I’m kind of excited and hope they let me in.  If having access to my brain can help someone better understand how [Read More…]

MENTAL ILLNESS: Second session with Harold.

Today’s session was good.  I was in a really good place psychologically.  While I irrationally worry on days like today that my therapist will say, “Oh, JT’s in a good mood, he must be faking/cured,” I’m happy because I’m most lucid when I’m in a good place and always get the most out of sessions [Read More…]

MENTAL ILLNESS: First meeting with a new therapist today.

Today I meet with my new therapist for the first time.  I’ve forgotten his name, so we’ll call him Harold. I’m not particularly excited.  I’ve been eating the last few months and hating myself for it, but at least I’ve been eating.  That’s a step.  I don’t know…I’m just tired and not terribly optimistic.  I [Read More…]

Please send better theists

I recently wrote an article about why I find Apologetics uncompelling, and I thought I was fairly honest and frank about it. Then, we were visited by a real life psychic – a kind of crappy one. [Read more…]

Mental health update: changing therapists.

So, here’s what’s going on with me. This last week I had a really rough time.  I actually snapped at my brother.  I don’t snap at anybody, especially my family that I love.  That’s just not me.  I apologized profusely, but it was indicative of very difficult times with my brain. The good news is [Read More…]

My Husband is a Recovering Depressive Anorexic and here’s What I’ve Learned (Part 1)

Hello WWJTD readers! Michaelyn – JT’s wife – here! JT writes a lot about his experience with depression and his eating disorder.

A rough week.

I’ve promised myself that I will eat something after writing this post. I had made quite a bit of progress.  I still hated my body, but I had gotten my brain to a point where I was experiencing happiness at keeping my weight constant.  But a few triggering events this past week sapped my will [Read More…]

Weighing myself.

Yesterday was a pretty rough day psychologically, so I decided that today I would weigh myself.  Sixteen or so hours should give me enough time to prepare (plus, you weigh much less in the morning than in the evening). First I tried not to eat.  I’m committed to eating when my stomach grumbles, but a late [Read More…]

Post therapy blog 11/5.

I gained .4 lbs this last week, though that may have been from the alcohol last night. Today Katy Perry’s supervisor was my therapist, with Katy looking on.  This guy had clearly done this before.  He quickly created a relaxed environment and clearly laid out what he planned to do. We focused on my obsessive [Read More…]
