    In the Pit

    So I work a lot, the last 5 days of my schedule

    were 16-20 hrs a day. The wife informs me that she scheduled herself to work on my days off. I didn't ask why as nothing will be resolved. But the question remains in my head, and makes me feel sad.

    You May Be Right, I May Be Crazy...

    But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for... I refuse to say "I am depressed" I always choose to say that "I am experiencing depression."   It is something that I experience without owning the experience.    I try to pass...

    I Feel Like I Am

    On my way to being free at least. Not quite all the way there.  I'm medicated and it really works for me--it's a small dose but hell if I don't feel worlds better.

    Oh The Insanity...

    I hate waking up everyday and thinking 'I just want to go back to sleep. I use to wake up and think 'sweet it's another day I can do this and that...' But now it just seems tiring to even crawl out of bed.

    Wouldn't Know What It Was

    I have suffered from depression for so long now that I don't think I could recognize what it would be like to be without it. Sure, I have good days, but it always lingers just below the surface waiting to pounce on me. I hate it.
