Today

My science God can't hear me.  I see no point in the "then and there" and I'm tired of the "here and now"  I hope that this is just today.  I've had days like this before.  Some last longer some don't.  I plan on focusing on something simple and concrete until it passes.  My feet! That's what I'll do. I'll stare at my feet until they move in the right direction.

Believe it or not this little bit of nonsense helped.

I do remember my creative writing teacher saying a plank page is the writers worst enemy. If nothing else start putting down flow of conscious until you FEEL some spark of emotion. That spark of emotion is the start of a possible vain that could lead to the motherload…DD

I've done that one a few times.

I'm coming in with my pet rattle snake!

You could go to AA meeting. I am not saying you need AA, I am just saying it won’t hurt. It is just good to be around people. They let worse F*&k ups then you or me in the door every day. LOL<br />
Wait a moment. Mmmmmm I just stated that you MAY not need to go to AA your self…Lookie what I just found…<br />
1/16th Native American (Cherokee), 1/4th Icelandic<br />
and 1/4th Irish.<br />
<br />
Nope. I was right the first time.<br />
Native Americans, Icelandic and OF COURSE the Irish have NO history of drinking problems. You have nothing to worry about Big Guy.<br />
<br />
I just noticed something else. 1/16 + ¼ + ¼ = ? Mmmmm you may not be all their. <br />
<br />
Get on the local Crag’s list and see if anyone sells Rattle Snakes. I suspect that a big Rattle Snake would just about fill you out.<br />
<br />
If no snakes, how about a Brothel? <br />
<br />
That’s it for me. Have fun and PM me either way…DD

I do believe that what you're doing is a way to get some perspective. Going the simple route can help so much when you're feeling down. It's an extremely complex world out there but inside yourself you can always find peace if you look inward. Hope you're feeling better man!

Hang in there Puck, you are doing awesome and I will help to hold you up in the bad times. Well done for finding something to help, and nothing is ever nonsense :) especially not from you dear :)

You know it is easily said, but hard to do........but if you can "trick/train" your brain to direct it's focus to something simple as you did, it helps stop the process of thinking about the negative things.......one thing that I think is odd is that when we feel happy we question ourselves.....like why should I be in a good mood, etc and we analyze it and end up many times discounting it, but when we feel bad/sad....we just accept it....I have been learning to try to question and argue about the sad days more and accept the happy days.........I hope this makes sense.......good luck
