Default Odd dream

I'm not one to believe all dreams should be interpreted as meaning anything. In fact this is the first time I've ever had a dream that I feel like may have meant anything.

The dream itself wasn't weird, its how it correlated with my own mood of late that has had me thinking about it.

First off, let me say, I've been depressed off and on for about a year. My personal vices I use when I pretty much stop giving a shit about the world are eating myself sick, watch a ton of porn, and sometimes even call phone personals and sex lines, as embarrassing as it is to admit that. I probably would be out sleeping around if I wasn't really anti-soical. I have pretty much no friends outside work, rarely go out, and am often uncomfortable in social settings.

Anyway, for the last month or so, I've become really fed up with my job. I've done my best to keep working but sometimes I just have to half ass my way through the day.

I've been feeling pretty good the last week or two, and finally a few days ago, I got in to see a psychiatrist got some meds. That night, through, I had a really vivid dream. I dreamt that I was at work, and a former female co-worker was there. Forget how it lead to this but in the dream we ended up having sex, and in doing so I pretty much blew off my work (forgive the expression).

That day, my depression hit me hard for the first time in a couple weeks. I ate junk food, didn't work out, felt like crap, half assed my work as much as possible, and after work, binged on porn and sex lines. The dream didn't really have an affect on my depression. I'm not really sure what triggered it.

Not sure why I'm posting this. I just though the correlation was really odd. In my dream I neglected my responsible to feed my sex drive, then in real like, my depression causes me to do the same thing.

Seems like the idea had been festering in the back of your mind, and then you went to sleep w/ meds, and it was moved vividly in the forefront. Not to mysterious to me!

Are you disturbed by the dream somehow? Seems kinda tame. ;)

Yeah, it does sound pretty tame. Especially if you have medication in your system.

Pigging out on food, porn, sex lines and stuff isn't too bad IMO. I mean you don't want to do it for 30 days strait, but a couple day binge can be kinda relaxing. No real harm done, unless you spend too much.

Yeah, the dream itself didn't bother me that much (you should see this co-worker I was talking about lol ). It was just the correlation between to two that seemed odd.

I guess the porn isn't that big a deal. Food isn't either, expect for when I binge it just makes me feel worse. The chat lines are another story. The cost of them can add up (sometimes find myself on them until the wee hours of the morning). I personally don't like the fact that I go on them.....plus I (sort of) have a girlfriend (it's a little complicated). I've told her I have done this before and I think she realizes its conected to the depression. The real problem with these lines is sometimes I feel its more compulsive than anything else. Masterbation too. I haven't done this is a few weeks, but there are times when I'm at home and I just......uh, jack off, like constantly. I'm not errect, watching porn, or even getting sexual pleasure out of it. I might even be doing other stuff, like brushing my teeth (funny and gross at the same time), I just constantly do it.

Some guys have decided to try out "I'm not going to masturbate for as long as I can," and claim that they saw surprising benefits from it when they persevered. I don't know if this is BS or not, but its worth exploring the concept. Two or three birds with one stone, there. Plus, it sounds like you've just developed the habit to a level that it kinda sustains itself. Disrupt that shit, mang. Draw your line, you know it needs to happen.
