You go to a relaxed place with people that don't suck ever, and then you go back to the world where money is king and paying the rent is more important than paying attention to your community and the betterment of all. I had a serious battle against depression from September until march, and I blame the onset of the depression on my experiences at burningman. But, burningman depressed me because in my head, I made it something that It wasn't. I looked at it as perfection, happiness, pureness, etc. In reality, its expressing yourself, burning stuff, and meeting people that make life tolerable. If you express yourself to your community at home, and burn the same amount of stuff, and make your community a place that you really do enjoy, than this forum wouldn't be neccesary. However, for all those still battling the depression of many months, email me. We can talk it out.
I would not call post-partum change "positive" just like that, even though the birth of a baby is (for most people) a postive and wished for event. After delivering a baby, a woman's body goes through LOTS of changes. Some of them are hormonal and hormones can wreck havoc with your neuro-transmitters. Whatever the origens of post-partum depression (and I'm sure that it's complicated and ideosynratic) I don't think it is a good comparison for coming off the playa. Although, the changes in amount of light absorbed by the skin, the amount of exercise, type and amount of food eaten and even, I suppose, depleation of nutrients from spending too much time drinking could negatively effect your mood, if you want to consider physiological explinations.dana wrote:Here's a peculiar idea to consider: One of the causes of depression is any quick and sudden change, even if it's a positive change (like post-partum depression.)
I'm scared of going back. I've bought a ticket but haven't made up my mind yet. I know I'll love it...I just don't want to go through the shock of reentry again. Does that make sense?
