    What you've written reminds me of this quote by Diogenes:
    "I threw my cup away when I saw a child drinking from his hands at the trough."
    We complicate life way too much, don't we? Silly humans. 🙂

    I'm a "highly sensitive person," which means, "Sensory processing sensitivity is a temperamental or personality trait involving "an increased sensitivity of the central nervous system and a deeper cognitive processing of physical, social and emotional stimuli."
    Y'all might relate. There's a book, The Highly Sensitive Person by Dr. Elaine Aron. Life is so much better when I honor this fact about myself and just chill more.

    Fascinating! I'm always struck by how many parallels you and I have in our lives.
    I had an infatuation with a coworker as well. It was agonizing, made worse by the fact I was still married at that time.
    Now I work alongside her without "longing". I have to say, it's much better this way!

    People drain and wear me out as well....as I probably do them. 
    Like my hero, Mr Carlin, I really do like people, as long as I can deal with them one at a time and in five or ten minute chunks.

    Well! You aren't far away from many of us who feel very much as you do. If I had any creativity, I could have written a similar poem. I've tried to explain depression to my daughter and she simply doesn't get it. I see that as a good thing because that means she isn't familiar with the feeling from it.

    @JD4010 Thanks to you guys, I know I'm not going crazy. I can't stress enough to my family how much it has changed my life. But I guess people on the outside will never understand how you can go from wanting to die every day, to caring about your life and actually being scared of death. But as you've said, I'm also kind of grateful they've never experienced this kind of pain before.

    I think I can help a little.
    Slice bananas into little rounds. Place a bit of natural (no added anything) in between two of them like a sandwich. Melt some semisweet chocolate chips and drizzle over them. Freeze on wax paper and store in the freezer between layers of wax paper or parchment paper. Pop a few out in the afternoon for a sweet treat that's healthier.
    Also, cut up an apple into bite-sized pieces. Put into a bowl with about 1/4 to 1/3 cup light coconut milk. Microwave for about a minute. Sprinkle cinnamon and salt to taste. You can also add a few nuts to it. I bet pistachios would be good. 
    Both are sweet but actually have nutritional value.
