I read that at first as "Best Therapy Mexican Food".
Best Post-Therapy Mexican Food? Jeph looks so content eating it - I'd believe it either way!
The conventions comment made me laugh so damn hard.
I'm convinced that one day the people I work with will realise I haven't got a clue what I'm doing and that I've been faking it all along. Also, sharting is both terrifying and hilarious at the same time.
All tha people in tha house with Impostor Syndrome, say "Oh, er!"
Look at the bright side! I only saw my therapist once, then was so convinced that she was judging me and being skeptical of what I had to say that I have never returned! No therapy for me!
Same, I only say my therapist like twice before I decided I liked her too much and that once I actually told her about myself she'd be disappointed in me and I wouldn't be able to take it. Though now looking back, she was probably more disappointed that I stopped showing up.
I'm kinda bad at the interwebs so i don't know who that Jeff *badhandwritinglastname* is, but I wouldn't mind being compared to Harvey Pekar. If no other reason than that Paul Giamotti played him in a movie. Shoot, I'm a girl and I want Paul Giamotti to play me in the movie of my life.
Jeff Rowland is the guy behind http://overcompensating.com/
and Wigu, and also the dude who runs Topatoco. He's pretty great, if often hilarious paranoid.
For the record, I have never had any problems whatsoever with celexa.
Celexa made 17-year-old me sick as fuck. Good luck, man.
I slept 20 hours a day, dropped out of college for a year and ended up super crazy thanks to Celexa :-p
Now I am off it and fine.
I have been mis-diagnosed for 4 different disorders by 4 different phycologists, they just want to tell you there is something wrong with you over telling you your having issues coping w/ real life in my experience.
Mmmm mexican food nom nom nom.
You are high on my list of favorite people I have not yet met. I owe you a pie.

damn. i am pregnant and obsessed with mexican food. i just ate breakfast but now i need to go find a quesadilla or something.
the only therapist i've ever seen told me that all my problems stem from being molested as a child. Which i don't remember because i've "repressed the memory" blah blah blah.
I never went back, and now i'm constantly second guessing myself and occaisionally wondering which one of my uncles diddled with me when i was 2. WTF.
And no meds have ever made me shit my pants. Prozac made my stomach burn like the firey pits of hell, but no, no shitting. And i am a professional shitter- IBS and Lactose intolerance!
Also, we are bummed that we didn't find any of your shirts on sale at the Topatoco sale last week. But i guess that just means your stuff sells...
Oh god I want to kill the entire "recovered memory" camp. They make us all look like morons. How does it help someone to tell them "You don't remember it, but evil people did terrible things to you!"
Love it! Keep em coming...

I always had to go post-therapy shopping. I called it post therapy retail therapy. Post-therapy Mexican food sounds a lot cheaper.
OK so I can't tell if the shitting thing is a joke or not, but for the record, Celexa worked for me and didn't give me any problems, except that when I started it and when I went off it cold turkey it made me kinda dizzy for a day or two. Don't go off it cold turkey, as is the rule with pretty much every antidepressant. And different pills work for different people, so don't despair if Celexa isn't right for you. I'm sure you've heard it all before. But yeah uh .. up until now I had never heard of anyone sharting because of Celexa. If that tweet is real, I can't help but wonder if that person is just be looking for something to blame for their accident. :P
I went off Zoloft cold turkey about a week ago, and seriously, I have been SO DIZZY for the past few days. It's like walking around with cotton balls behind my eyes. Ugggggh.
You've earned some enchiladas anytime you want them.
celexa made me very very very very very very very ill O_o like going to the hospital cause it felt like an alien was gonna burst out of my chest/stomach type ill :/
that being said...
post-therapy mexican food sounds delish
Maybe it's because YOU WEAR YOUR HAT INSIDE THE HOUSE.
ALSO SOME OF US AREN'T SO SECRET ABOUT IT LOL
I agree with the third twitterer.
Jeph, Marigold shouldn't be so negative. At least Angus knows how to cheer people up, if only by being hilarious.
Baha, I relate to the waiting room panel. :P Whenever I go to see my therapist, I try and pick out what everyone is diagnosed with. :3
personally, for post therapy food, i'm partial to a good piece of homemade lasagne & a couple pieces of garlic toast
I was only able to see my therapist for 10 sessions (University-funded therapy. High demand.) But she did help me a lot. I still have some pretty ridiculous social-anxiety and self-esteem issues, but she helped me be confident enough to trust myself and make a huge change in my life. I'm a lot happier at my new school and I've made lots of friends here, but I still have trouble being comfortable around people outside of that setting. >.< I'm graduating this year.... Better fix that....
I'm doing University-funded therapy. Every session we talk about the same things, and he always offers to put me on antidepressants and when I refuse he goes "Sigh... well, I wish there was more I could do to help you." Gee, wonderful thing to say. Every session. That's... not helping me... except making me realize the only thing I can do is help myself. Great way to think about therapy. Aaaaand I'm done now XD
Celexa has never given me the fart issues. That sounds... terrifying.
Why did I never partake in the post-therapy Mexican food??
the yo mama joke made me and my boyfriend LOL IRL. love it!
Loving that face for the "Going crazy" noon-ish strip. :)
