  1. The "How Do You Feel Right Now?" (4)

    I put up colorful lights in my apartment, but that's about as far as it goes. I will listen to "Stille Nacht" by Elizabeth Schwartzkopf on Christmas Eve because it such a beautiful song. I did buy my daughter an electronic game she has been wanting "for Christmas" last night, but she was there when I bought it. As always, I reject the mass consumerism. I see it as a sickness. We should be giving to people less fortunate, not buying each other crap just because we feel "obligated". Which reminds me...years ago, I felt obligated to buy my ex wife something...even though she said she didn't want anything (big trap). I got her this stylized cat pendant made from jade. When she opened it on Christmas Day, the first thing she said was that I had to return it because it was ugly. Wow. That put me in a festive mood.

    Yay! Welcome back! We were worried about you, my friend.
  4. How Do You Feel Today? #32

    Amazing, ain't it? I need to clean the bathtub; a fairly simple task, right? But I just can't make it happen. And then there's the pile of crap at the office that just keeps growing.

    What? Hey! Good to see you, my friend.

    @LonelyHiker, @HeatherG, @babyxgothxx, thanks for the good wishes. It's been a very long time since I felt that good. One thing that didn't occur to me yesterday was that my boss was out of the office. That was also a big mood booster. He's not a bad guy, but he will come barging in and start grilling me with no warning. That really puts me on edge. Yeah, he's the boss, but it's unnerving as hell. He's gone today as well, so my mood is still pretty good.

    I had a glimpse of what it's like NOT having depression today. I got up from my desk and walked around the offices. I saw people I hadn't seen in months, even though we work in the same place. Then I walked down to the credit union and back. I felt good after doing this. Couple that with staying away from the bottle for almost 3 weeks and I'm almost feeling human again.
  8. What's On Your Mind Right Now?

    We aren't truly free...most of us are owned by banks (mortgages, loans, credit cards, etc.). I can't do what I really want to do in life because everything costs money.

    I'm kinda feeling numb. Which is far better than anxiety or dread of course. I've got a looming personnel issue that I must deal with and it ain't gonna be pleasant. A coworker of mine whom I've been friends with for over 20 years really upset one of the employees I manage so now I have to confront the guy with it. He already knows he screwed up but I still have to formally pursue a course of discipline with the guy. I know he suffers from some depression-related issues too so that makes it doubly hard for me.
  10. Flushing kind...what is that? Thanks!
  11. Do you have any particular "brand name" or way of ingesting these vitamins and minerals that you think would be more effective for people? Thanks for any recommendations you might have!

    And! I'm even older than you guys. I see only a gray & bleak "life" ahead of me from here on out. I got "ditched" early in the year and that effectively crushed any glimmer of hope I may have had. I go to work and try to function but I have no interest in anything. Then I get home, turn on the TV and watch old movies. At least I have the two cats to keep me company.

    Hahaha. That is an excellent--and truthful--observation, my friend!

    Sorry you had such a bad day. And then there's the eye-opening event. Hope you are OK...

    Happy birthday, and congratulations!
