Which app is it?

I tried meditation a couple of times, never really made it a habit.
waking up by sam harris. (not the book, the app).

though its classified as a "meditation" app, the focus is for the most part on Vipassanā

Well, I went to over 4 different ones plus the ones from work. It's me who has to convince myself. My former boss is an asshole he took my perfect stats with him I got nothing he slept with some of the younger girls. I was laughed at, gas lighted, traumatized, bullied and mocked and people were gossiping behind my back. My bosses were calling me delusional. after I sent an email to the top secretary and the deputy prime minister the people left that entire site a week after I resigned from a permanent role and the most safest job you can get. I live in a country which was used as a prison camp I should not be surprised by the bullying involved.
Sounds like a horrid work place, your boss seems a dick and feels like you are right to leave the place. Your co-workers and your boss should be there to help you thrive, not to bully or mock you (only friendly ofcourse). I hope you found some work which will satisfy you and will treat you like a real person.

Thank you! Loving the app so far, and Sam Harris is a great guy... Managed to get a year for free.

Hey nice thread! I have ADD, social anxiety, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Was addicted to weed for more than 20 years, but stopped all drugs two years ago. My social workers think, that i have asperger, but i dont think so.

I tried many things, psychology, spirituality and others. But now i found the one and only real thing in the world: Queerfeminism! Its intersectional. Dont try to change yourself. Dont try to adapt to that sick society 'rules'. Instead, start to change that society and adapt it to your needs! Fight and Heal! :)

So, my therapist thinks I am depressed and I'll meet him in person in the coming days to give me prescription for antidepressant. Don't know what to expect but I will give it a try. I've got nothing to lose at this point.

can you describe the symptoms? what is currently manifesting in your body/mind?

Physically I'm fine but mentally drained. My biggest gripes are apathy and lethargy. Let's say I'm in the wilderness and sitting in a bush while starving. I'd rather stay there until I die than go and find food. Thats how I feel most of the time. Otherwise feeling foggy, poor short-term memory, can't focus and concentrate, suicidal thoughts cross my mind regularly (I don't thing I'm gonna act on them anytime soon), have some bad OCD tendencies. He told me that this particular medication helps with OCD too. Medication is Remirta (Mirtazapine) - once per day/30mg. He is pretty positive that I'm not going to experience bad side effects.

I suspected that can be depressed but when you hear it from professional adds more weight to it.
Still can't shake this feeling that I'm just laziest and most boring person on the planet and faking it. Like depression is not real.
