-How plain is plain?

Plain enough that the checksum can be found through a reverse lookup (even with salts).
Most people assume password strength lies just in how long it would take to just brute-force the exact string.

exactly, they have a repositories of commonly used patterns, plus dictionary attacks.
they bruteforce passwords as a last resort.

to begin with, a lot of login protections block bruteforce by a very simple mean, maximum attempts and login intervals.

Must be all this anime you're watching - you're having a relapse brought on by an old habit you indulged in during that time.

Well an old friend stopped by and we binge watched some anime we had on a list we hadn't finished yet.  Haven't done that in a while, good times.

Don't anti-depressants have all kinds of side effects?

I don't know about "all kinds" but if you have a problem where medication is an option, it's important to find the medication that works for you.  Not everyone reacts the same way to different medications.  In my case, when I started discussing Lexapro with other people I know, it turns out that 4 of them (2 co-workers, a friend, and my dad) had all used that medication in the past, and all of them reported positive experiences with it.  My own experience with the minimum dose has been quite good, and I haven't noticed any side effects while taking it.  Some of these drugs you have to be careful with when you stop taking it.
If I ever meet God in person, I'm going to ask Him why he created so many stupid people, and then punch Him in the nose before he answers.
