    Nope. I don’t see the point. After three years of therapy(chronic insomnia and exhaustion)  the outcome was I was chronically dissatisfied with myself and life in general. Wow. What a revelation.

    since then I tried to just shrug it off. Didn’t work. I tried therapy again, three or four different therapists, after 15 years of feeling frustrated and empty within. No one has a clue what to do with me. The last therapist I saw was more interested in telling about his exploits and achievements than me. I gave up after seeing him 5 or 6 times.

    I think I just gave up in general. No I am just waiting to die or get the he courage to end this all

    I've been lucky with some great therapists.  Several of them knew each other which I liked.  I'm the one who doesn't do the work. By this time it's up to me.  I sort of gave up too I guess.   Don't end it all, we enjoy your posts. It really is like a family here.  But I have trouble communicating on forums and I get confused and stuck in the virtual part.  Probably 'cause I'm older and used to sitting and gabbing with a beverage at a table.  I just feel lost.

    There are zoom therapy sessions..

    All virtual where I am... pretty sure it's the case almost everywhere else in the US. I suppose I could request a session in-person, but I might need to move heaven and earth to succeed.

    On the other hand, dentists are open again and I've been to one. I know it's hard to do dentistry virtually, but if I can see a dentist in person, why not any other doctor?


    I was wondering about dentists too.  It's such a confusing time,

    My daughter found a stray cat yesterday. She's really pretty; all black. She is craving love because all she wants to do is sit on you and purr. I have her in the spare bedroom of my apartment right now. She has a virus of some sort because she's sneezing a lot and one of her eyes is running. I worry because one of my cats might catch it, even though she's in a separate room. I don't know what to do with her. I'm feeding her because she is skin and bones. I'll take her to the vet tomorrow or Tuesday I guess. 

    Black cats are good luck.  Especially at Halloween!

    The biggest store in my town of 3,000 or so is a Dollar Store.  We have two, one at either end of a roughly two-miles stretch that veers off, then back on the interstate, becoming our main street.  They're different brands, but both are small, even for Dollars.

    One just put in a self checkout, like the big stores.  It had two cash registers, but removed one to put in the self check out.  It looks nuts.  In this case, it's a supposed cost cutter.  One guy often mans the store now.  I use the new auto mate.  It's supposed to provide the one guy with help if a line forms.  But he just plays like it's a person, and I watched him wheel a cart to the back and disappear as I used the self checkout.  What if I just barely miss a barcode swipe?🤠   I'm glad the guy has trust in the honor system, but I don't think that's why they were designed.  Why not just put in two machines, no people, and rename the store "Looters".

    Always wanted to go to Quartzsite

    I remember the advent of DVDs in the early 2000s. My father bought an expensive ultra deluxe Toshiba DVD player in the year 2000 which thinking back I can't fathom why because he's never been a movie watcher. I remember video stores subsequently heavily discounting all their VHSs and getting a bunch of new releases for $7 apiece.

    I was witness to the advent of.. VIDEO my god!
