What I wanted to do last night

I was feeling depressed and, I wished I could just ditch my lifestyle and my life, leave everything behind and just travel the United States by train foot car whatever. I’m definitely healthy enough to do this. The only problem is where would I get my meds. And don’t try to convince me that there are ways, I know there are, but they’re complicated and not worth risking for me. So this is just a dream. I wish. !

You can still elope for a month or two, as long as you take along enough pills.

Yeah I thought about that too!! Maybe like next summer. There was a lot of confused thoughts when I was thinking this so I made stupid excuses as to why I can’t but I would love to do this so now I’m thinking more sense, your idea seems plausible

Cool man. It would be quite an adventure, meeting new people, staying in churches overnight lol, taking astounding photos…

Just be sure you’ve been symptom free for at least 3 months, take a 2-month prescription from the pharmacy, some pocket money, and you’re good to go!

Do you have hostiles in Romania? They’re like cheap hotels with much less service. You oftentimes sleep in the same room with 5 other people. But it’s cool because it’s damn cheap! I stayed in one in Seattle. That’s probably what I’d do.

I did this. Technically, I didn’t have a choice, because I was homeless. But I took advantage of every opportunity. I used couchsurfing.com to find places to stay. I think you’d like it. You’re the kind of personality that gets along with strangers easily. As long as you have refills on your prescription, you can fill them at any pharmacy. Just make sure you do it during the spring/summer, when it’s warm and not horrifically stormy. And always make sure you have enough gas money to get back home if you change your mind.

Thanks for the advice @ninjastar! It’s been my dream to do something similar for some time but never was healthy enough. But now I am. I will ask my pdoc how long he can give refills for and stuff and how I go about doing it. I think couch surfing would be cool. People are even more hospitable outside the northeast typically imo which would be great to experience. I’ve always wanted to go to Tennessee.

Tennessee was super cool. I went to Memphis and the metal museum there is fantastic! Also, Beale street. It’s horribly touristy, but in the best way!

Hostels… I’ve stayed in one 11 years ago, in Denmark…a room full of women lol, I was the only lad and they would get topless before bedtime :))) I said sorry and turned to face the wall but one of them, a middle aged lady from UK, said “nah it’s ok” :flushed:

St Louis is cool because all the museums, the zoo, and the parks are totally free. Chicago has some really cool modern art in the park. Stay away from Oklahoma. It’s the land of despair. Although, you’re straight and white, so maybe it wouldn’t be as bad for you. And maybe I just had an uncommonly bad experience. Seattle is fantastic, but you already know that. The Outer Banks on one of the Carolinas (North?) are the best beaches I’ve ever been to, but I haven’t been to California beaches yet. And if you can get your passport, Canada is always worth a visit. Niagara Falls is awesome, and it’s even more awesome on the Canadian side. You can go in these caves that lead right behind the falls. And you can go on this boat that journeys right up to the bottom of them. Go on a hot, sunny day, because you will get absolutely drenched. They give you a poncho, though.

Oh, and another cool museum you will probably really appreciate. The Corning Museum of Glass. It’s filled with beautiful glass sculptures, and they do glass blowing demonstrations, and you can even work with molten glass yourself! That is probably my favorite museum ever. They have a student discount, so if you’ve saved your student ID, bring it along.

And Philadelphia! How can I forget that?! The Reading Terminal Market is a giant farmer’s market full of some of the best food stands, a great used book stall, and the craziest craft vendors. If it’s a hot day, you can go swimming in the Love fountain. The Franklin Institute is awesome, but expensive. Get a cheesesteak while you’re there. Talk to some of the people. They’re all super blue collar and friendly, especially to anyone they suspect of being a hockey fan.

All the Oklahomaians on this board seem cool lol :joy: so I thought it wouldn’t be so bad but does sound pretty despairing other than juke, crimby and lost… have u been to the great west…like Wyoming and Montana and Idaho and those states. I’m guessing not but I hear it’s BEAUTIFUL. Maybe u have been.

I’ve been to Montana and Idaho. I’m actually going back to Montana next week. Mr. Star’s family lives there. We’re flying though. I much prefer driving, because then I’m in control of when we leave. Public transportation stresses me out more than it should. I always worry about missing my ride/flight,

I’ve been to a couple of Memphis Grizzlies games. @ninjastar is right it’s a very cool place @Jonnybegood.

Lots of music too right?? Memphis the home of Elvis I believe. I’d like to visit his home. Tennessee has always seemed like the best in the south to me not including the Carolinas.

They had live jazz on Beale St when I was in Memphis.

That’s when a homeless guy saw me wearing glasses and asked me if I went to school, and creeped out I said yes and he started cracking up. I guess he has found the world of money and education to be a big illusion, like I’m starting to believe.

Topic change. Back to your aspirations. A trip around the USA sounds very fun.

I believe that’s Nashville. Nashville is like Elvis and Johnny Cash. Memphis is jazz and blues. And barbecue!
