|1 day 12 hours ago||forgive me if I'm stating the obvious here||
but i've never seen this clip and find it hysterical that he is getting that jacked up and the score is 2 - 2.
**EDIT** OK, I'm not the only one!

"Shut your fucking face uncle fucker"

but he can't talk about it until he does it! Also, he needs to help a few people install a basketball hoop, submit some killer tailgate recipes, and cure Urbz of his mental illness
|5 days 16 hours ago||I would say||
at least 2 or 3 more P/K return TD's, Score 5 TD's on offense, and not get beat on pass coverage anymore! He needs at least 3 or 4 INT's also!

|1 week 4 days ago||Current studies suggest||
that more than 1 in 5 people over 18 experience some form of mental illness at some point in their lives. I think it's higher than that. When I went through my problems many years ago, I was very open about it from the beginning. I was shocked at all the family members and friends I had that opened up to me about experiencing the same things. Some of the people in my life that seemed the strongest/toughest were really struggling. Our society is way too focused on material things and having as much as possible. This world would do itself a great favor to just chill out, enjoy people more than possesions and search for peace instead of more pieces! KUMBAYA!!!!

but this is sometimes incorrect. Depending on the chemical (I'll use Serotonin & GABA for example), there is scientific data that shows they may be better controlled by diet, excercise, and meditation than by any prescription drug currently available. I'm not against drugs. I currently take 1 antidepressant and have for 11 years. The problem is that I can't get off it because the withdrawal symptoms I experience are unbearable. I just caution anybody to use a prescription drug for this stuff as a last resort
|1 week 4 days ago||nothing wrong with being honest about it||
I felt the same way you do when I heard the word anxiety. That was until I had my own issues start around 11 years ago. All I can tell you is that you really can't relate to what they're going through if you've never experienced it yourself. Always remember that NOBODY would feel or act this way if they had a choice. Be as patient and sensitive about it as you possibly can, but also hold them accountable for doing what they can to help themselves.
|1 week 4 days ago||right on man||
very well said. Also, just a small piece of advice. If you haven't already done so, I would get a blood test done just to rule out anything funky that may trigger your anxiety/depression. I had undiagnosed thyroid disease that really wreaked havok on me! Helped a ton with my anxiety/depression symptoms once I got that fixed
|1 week 4 days ago||We're saying the same thing but in a little different way||
or I guess maybe we kind of look at it in a different way. I look at mental illness the way I look at a cold. That may sound a little crazy, but this is what I mean. I've dealt with mental illness on and off in the past. I can never guarantee that I won't deal with it again. However, I can do many things every day to help prevent it from coming back. If it does come back at some point in my life, I can do things to fight it, probably overcome it again, or at the very least greatly reduce it's negative impact on my life! You're a good man for being there for your family. Make sure you take care of yourself as well so you can continue to be there for them in the future!
|1 week 4 days ago||OK, the last thing I want to do is argue about this||
agree to disagree man. All this talk about mental illness IS MAKING ME SO ANGRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG
|1 week 4 days ago||absolutely right||
That is the point I've also been trying to make. In my personal case, I believe that the coping mechanisms I learned through cognitive therapy did way more for me than any of the medications I was on. As I said, 5 years running with no issues whatsoever.
|1 week 4 days ago||Now this point||
I agree with you on 100%!!!
|1 week 4 days ago||wow dude||
I disagree with almost everything you said. There are tons of things that could be done that are not being done right now. Also, your quote about "many people not knowing they are suffering because they don't have another reality to compare it to" is way off base. I think even people who have severe mental illness would tell you there are days that are better or worse than others
|1 week 4 days ago||Can we please name it||
"The Mark Bernstein School of Kinesiology" ?
|1 week 4 days ago||I agree Hatter||
but here's something that needs to change. Everybody wants to "cure" mental illness with medications that cost thousands of dollars. There are so many things people struggling with mental illness can do that cost nothing. Join a support group, meditate, excercise, eat a healthy diet, try a form of spirituality. These are things that need to be pushed along with meds.
Also, I thought sure you were going to say nobody is allowed to have a mental illness til we beat MSU and OSU
|1 week 4 days ago||Hang in there dude!||
1. Eat a good diet
2. Stay off booze if you're not doing well
3. Excercise every day
4. Meditate at least once a day
5. Get a blood test done to make sure you don't have any untreated health issues going on
6. Try cognitvie therapy if at all possible
7. Give a form of spirituality a chance
8. Find anything that makes you laugh
You can overcome this stuff!!!!!
|1 week 4 days ago||As someone who has dealt with mental illness personally||
here's the biggest misconception IMO. That you can't beat it. I spent 5 years going to therapy for anxiety/depression. I was on a buttload of prescriptions. You can totally overcome it. I'm over 5 years removed from any issues because of therapy and different stress relief techniques. We need to eliminate the stigma attached to the term "mental illness". People look at that term as a lifetime affliction. It certainly does not have to be. With the right daily routine and treatments, you can feel better than you ever have. I appreciate Urban doing this,.....I still think he's a weenie, but he did a good thing here!

of George Carlin. He just slays me. Would love him as an assistant here.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||absolutely right||
tired of this conversation. Football = somewhat dangerous. We all know the risks now. Don't want to take the risk, don't play

this one. Congratulations!
|2 weeks 3 days ago||More like I'll send you an invoice||
for the help you'll need dealing with your wife. I suggest you find a new team to root for, we'll be fine without you. Have a nice life. Quit drinking and go to bed. You'll never work in the toy industry, or for Domino's for that matter.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Great points||
now jump in your time machine and go tell him! WTF?
