>>>>>I'll chime right in. I'm a 4/3 and although I don't think I have ADD, I do have depression/anxiety swings and I'm sure it was intensified 100x yesterday with PMS. So basically I sat and looked at every area of my life and saw FAILURE and LOSER -- my overweight body, my boring job, my lack of money, my constantly fighting children, sloppy house, no creative accomplishments to speak of, constant failure on the practice tests I take for the broker's licenses, and occasional dabbling in alcohol/drugs (none this past weekend though). Suicide seemed a rational escape except that I don't want to leave my kids like that. There are problems with my husband too and most just stupid age-related things. On Sunday afternoon I finally saw "Pirates of the Caribbean" and wished I was stuck on a desert island with Johnny Depp and enough rum to intoxicate an entire fleet of pirates. Maybe he wouldn't mind my overweight body once he was smashed. There I made myself laugh. (I have a 1/9 ISTJ dad, by the way, so now I go for these really decadent and hedonistic 4ish, 7ish, 8ish type guys as a backlash.) Hey at least I wasn't in NYC when the lights went out.
