I started “Struggle Street” Oct. 23, 2017 as part of a new treatment regimen. I was hoping it would control my severe depression/PTSD that I had been suffering from since childhood (Reasons). Today I would like to share a brief list of symptoms/behaviors from both before and after this treatment.

Before: fatigue, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, fear, worthlessness, impaired concentration, indecisiveness, insomnia, diminished interest/pleasure in nearly everything, stress, nightmares, avoidance, memory problems, lost relationships, lost jobs, anger, irritability, aggressive outbursts, no libido, self medicating, introvert.

After: energy, positivity, hope, calm demeanor, renewed interest in health and well-being, steady employment, no more suicidal thoughts, mindfulness, focus, philosophical thinking, philanthropic endeavors, belief in humanity, volunteering, controlled thoughts/behavior (I still feel the need to choke the shit out of some folks, but not enough to act on). Still an introvert.

That’s a pretty damn good turn around compared to a (journal entry from 2012). Big hat tip to Dr. Jeremy Crosby at Haus of Clarity for my recovery. The vitamins along with a healthy lifestyle and once a month (in office) therapy are for real. I am totally amazed at how good I feel.

Take away: If you suffer from depression, Bi-polar, or PTSD and medication has not worked, please try this new therapy. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects, and will change your life.

A gigantic “THANK YOU” to those of you whom follow and read “Struggle Street”. When I started this blog I literally hated Everybody and Everything. Now I am very grateful and blessed that such good people are along for this ride. I hope I can return the favor.

I’m posting personal information (Video of cars I photograph, working out, and in-depth content about this journey) at Become a Patron. It will be inexpensive and has some OK perks. I’ll let you know when it’s ready for business.

  1. Thanks so much for posting this Scarpoe. I’ve been screwed up a while. Meds have worked a fair bit, and ECT was a complete bust. I’ll definitely look into this.

    Just so you know, there are people that I’d like to choke the shit out of too. I think that’s normal, isn’t it?
