    Thanks so much!
    I am thinking your're right about the ends being closed.

    I really agree about the wider space. Two of the A herd are friendly but they can make life hard for horse number three if...
  2. Well, I guess the best way is just to build two...

    Well, I guess the best way is just to build two totally separate structures. From ground to lowest truss will be ten feet (plus thickness of beam so more like 10'5"). One will be 24' long and the...

    Wow this is all so helpful and thanks so much!
    My problem is that I have two "herds": herd A with three horses (one one eyed and VERY dominant, BFFs with one of the other horses, and another...
  4. Thanks so much, so it is 28' LONG, so the opening...

    Thanks so much, so it is 28' LONG, so the opening would be 28' (not 11!) ;) and so far, they are thinking about leaving the ends open (sort of a ramada-like thing) but I would like the ends closed,...

    i have been very happy with mina vite lite (blue seal) and the horses (and mule) love it! Mule was on MVP but then would.not.eat. so switched him to minavite and he gobbles it up,

    as an...
  6. building new run in and few questions about measurements?

    Finally building a run in that has to span two pastures for my guys. Currently it will measure 24' across (12 feet in each pasture minus the width of the posts. I am thinking of have it be 10' high,...

    You will see many explanations of addictions, so my recommendation is always to see someone, a professional who is trained in this area, face to face to get the straight story. But, in general,...
  8. Stuff like this is why anyone with any questions...

    Stuff like this is why anyone with any questions about addiction should get them from an actual professional, NOT strangers on a horse forum! Get information from people who do this for a living,...

    Of course, withdrawal symptoms are a symptom of addiction!

    Many drugs can have a discontinuation syndrome, such as some anti depressants. We would not consider that person to have a substance...

    bolding mine.

    Okay, so what are you saying then?
  11. Okay. Now we are venturing into crazy talk....

    Okay. Now we are venturing into crazy talk. Noticing/enjoying the effect of an opioid is NOT the same as being addicted! My mother liked the effect of morphine when she broke her hip (for the first...
  12. OP, I get why you find opioids so pleasant! Many,...

    OP, I get why you find opioids so pleasant! Many, many people do. Hence, there is a massive prescription drug problem! They are extremely reinforcing. Excellent for what they are designed for -...
  13. Actually, I know this is totally crazy, but we...

    Actually, I know this is totally crazy, but we have a manual for diagnosing! It's called the DSM. we don't have to create hypotheticals!

    We have a RANGE of depressive disorders, including one...
  14. Yes I agree. The person and their doc should...

    Yes I agree. The person and their doc should decide. NOT internet strangers. Or my neighbor's cousin. Or a friend's brother's kid.
    Very much agree with that.

    I may have missed it (and I have...
  15. Not all diabetics take medication! Same thing....

    Not all diabetics take medication! Same thing. Some need it and many don't.

    Many, for example, manage their blood sugar with diet and exercise! They monitor their blood sugar and so forth. Others...

    OMG, thank God that author doesn't live at our house. How do you avoid dressing in front of each other (particularly in a tent?), and of course, I lve with a guy who thinks it's awesome to "pull his...
  17. I will add that at least in rural areas a big...

    I will add that at least in rural areas a big issue is actuallyfinding a qualifed prescriber. Some GPs are pretty good in this area and some really know nothing about it and do the best they can. ...
  18. Okay, this attitude is why many people do NOT go...

    Okay, this attitude is why many people do NOT go in for treatment and I'm sad that people still hold it. It's too bad your wife is depressed and its terrific she is managing it but...that certainly...
  19. I don't know about pro meds. Medication works...

    I don't know about pro meds. Medication works for many people. It does not in any way work for all, and it certainly is NOT a deal breaker if someone doesn't want to go that route. People (many)...

    Wendy is totally right that exercise is considered extemely helpful and in some studies can be as helpful as some ADs. And by exercise, they do not mean marathons, long work outs or anything like...

    From a therapist's perspective, there is a ton of data in that statement about feeling so good when he got married he thought he was cured.

    A Gottman therapist will definitely ask "so tell me the...

    You do sound like such a caring person!

    I guess i'd just add that the depression is his. It is his to work out or not. He may get better. He may get worse. He may stay the same. It's his.

    Your...

    Interesting!

    and no, that is not a line from any story of which I am aware!

    I do like FPP (Basketcase, Hiaasen) but I also like 3rd present (Disappearance, Friedman) and I like first past...
  24. Question for the readers and writers out there

    about point of view.

    So, on the what are you reading threads, obviously people enjoy a range of styles and topics. Do people have a preference/bias for or against a POV?

    For example, if someone...

    I’ m really sorry to hear you are in the middle of this; depression in no fun.

    One way to think of depression is like a three legged stool. One leg is the physiological, the brain stuff,...
