Thanks for the fix... appears I was so tired I forgot to copy the link over to the post's code (now I have).

Like you said, it seems it needs more study.  Until there is more research, and until this is more widely known (presuming it is found to work immediately after trauma), it will be incredibly awkward for someone to say, "you were in a near-fatal car accident?  Here: play some Tetris."  This will have to be closer to common knowledge before that won't be seen as incredibly dismissive of traumatic events.

I've thought about death more in the last week than I can remember, it just seems to be everywhere. One of the employees I supervise is coping with the loss of his grandmother and planning for her funeral at the end of the week. I got a call over the weekend to tell me that my own grandfather has been moved to a hospice and isn't expected to live much longer. He hasn't been awake since, according to my brother, and since I'm still in Texas and most of my family is in Ohio I can't just pick up and go to see him quickly. Add to that a 24 year old co-worker in another department recently put in her two week notice, quietly worked her last day this past Friday, then killed herself on Saturday.

I can't say I'm in distress, but it's been a dark time.

I'm sorry to hear this, Ronin.   That sort of thing seems to happen to most people at one point or another.  It's just random chance, but it's really sad random chance.  :'(

I'm sorry Ronin.  All of that combined sounds mood-crushing.

I couldn't feel today. Or all weekend. I went through the motions a lot... but I got nothing. Todat I broke down and had an anxiety attack because I didn't feel love for my boyfriend, which is the one thing I'm most terrified of losing. I feel a little better tonight, but I still am having issues feeling anything. Being empty hurts.

Made a list today, setting the things I need to deal with and their urgency.  People say money doesn't buy happiness but $10, 000 or so would let me take care of almost everything outside of mental & weight issues.

Money buys you "absence of grinding misery". Hope your day is going well.

Yeah. Money won't buy happiness, but it will take a mountain off your shoulders.

It can also buy a house, a car, and steaks.
