Connoiseur (sp?) Media ruined Erie radio...period. Let's put a drug-addicted former Motley Crue member's show on Rocket 101 and play the same shit over and over again instead of actually hiring someone TALENTED? Also, my iPod has more of a music selection than Star 104. You want good FM radio? Listen to FM96 in London or 103.3 from Buffalo.

This dinosaur city blows. We run our city and businesses like we are in the stone ages. Fat puss of a mayor, corrupt businesses and politicians, lousy employers, lousy schools, snobby people, lousy downtown,beaches you can't drink at or throw a ball or frisbee in the water at, lousy drivers, rampant ignorance, drugs everywhere, etc etc. It's no wonder we have so many bars in Erie. I can't wait to leave this dump hole when my kids are grown. It's only barely tolerable thanks to the fact that the blue collar people in this town are actually damn good people. Outside of that, we need to dig a big well to toss a whole lot of people in. Screw Erie...

Or maybe, just maybe it could be the proliferation of over medicating by our health system. Had a bad day? Here's some Prozac. Nervous about flying? Here's some Zanax. I think anyone from anywhere in the US could be diagnosed with depression or anxiety at some point in their lives. Not saying there aren't people out there with a serious condition but I feel the medical community is far too eager to place a diagnosis of depression or anxiety vs getting down to the real cause of someones issues. Erie's no different than any other part of the US...

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/kHgRdx only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.

I have been an inpatient off and on for my entire life. They finally determined that my depression was because I, well I forgot. But what the hey, I'm here to entertain you. I am Davey Boy Crosby, the goofball in my mother's basement asking all of you to come out and see me in our dilapidated Cape Cod in Conneaut Township. My light is normally on at night. I cannot sleep, because my waterhead wears on me. Ho, Ho, He, He I am the big Dummy named David CrosB. I hope the Pikeekevich boys come out and hit me on my waterhead with their class rings. We can then have a soppy, class reunion.

My God Mike. Are you still complaining about two 80 yr old guys that hit you on the head with their class rings every time you said something stupid? What was that 35yrs ago? Why don't you go to your class reunion and face them instead of sniveling in your moms basement about ancient history. Time to grow up and move on Headward.

These doctors are making bank! See any distinction? Legal dope dealing. Depression is the easiest thing to be diagnosed and misdiagnosed. I remember getting counseling as a kid n these people were trying to shove drugs down my throat. I didn't do it but I believe I'm far from depressed now. Don't give up on urself life changes people change you don't ALWAYS need a magic pill

Ha ha Crosby once again attacked an innocent Topix bystander. LMAO.
To the real Clinton poster, I apologize for David Crosby's stupidity and childish lashing out. He is a real mental case and I am afraid that there is no magic pill that could ever help him. If you read any of his dribble, you will understand.

If you are struggling with depression you are not the only one... I have struggled with it too. There's good news tho! I found something that really does work... I feel so much better it's just a blessing. I thought I would never feel happy again! But thanks to a product called Confianza I am feeling so much better! It's all natural! I don't have time to go to the dr and set half the day for them to give me something that may not even work!!! A friend of mine suggested the Confianza!!!!! And I tried it and I'm so happy that I did!!!! You can contact my friend by text to set up a time to talk! Or you can do like me and get Confianza on her website and pay wholesale price at www.MagicShrink.com
