I don't think I've ever been truly happy.  I've had happy times, moments when I was happy.  But happiness as a long term-state is nothing I have ever experienced.  I'm generally tormented.  Certain things give me a sense of elation.  Listening to Beethoven gives me a sense of elation.  Going to the beach in Atlantic City gives me elation.  Bonding with my imaginary friends gives me elation.  Having insights gives me a sense of elation.  But elation for me exists in sporadic moments in a sea of emotional desolation.

    I'm not sure that everlasting happiness exists. There is only the persuit of happiness.
