    Hi again. yikes

    Are you feeling any better today, kChristine?
  4. Hi ChopinLover, How are you doing today? A painful bout of tendinitis in both hands prevented me from responding to you post earlier. Sorry! I suffered severe depression for many years and medication has helped me tremendously especially for the last 20+ years. I tend to see "normal" as less of a point than as a kind of continuum or like a spread in the middle of a bell curve if that makes any sense. In that sense, medication has helped me feel normal for over 20 years. Can't speak for others though. Your screen name brings back a lot of memories for me since I played a lot of Chopin pieces when I was able to play the piano. Do you like Chopin?

    Apologies for not responding to your post until now, but I've been ill. I like your screen name, AtivanandXbox. I was wondering how you are feeling today? - epictetus

    Hi again. yikes

    I'm so sorry you are suffering, kchristine! The experiences you are having are similar to things I experience or have experienced and they are just awful. Tendinitis in my hands prevents me from typing for long. Sorry. I was helped a lot by some books written by psychologists and I would be happy to share the titles and authors with you if you are interested. I feel badly that I cannot respond adequately to your post, but the pain in my hands is too much to bear right now. - epictetus

    What's On Your Mind Right Now? (2)

    I'm thinking about a poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson called "The Eagle." " He clasps the crag with crooked hands Close to the sun in lonely lands Ring'd with the azure world he stands The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls He watches from his mountain walls And like a thunderbolt he falls. "
  13. I'm so sorry you are suffering and have been suffering so long! How awful! You've been through so much and are still going through so much! I wish I could write more, but a bout of terrible tendinitis in my hands prevents me from typing for long. I do hope things improve for you, Bowser ! ! ! - epictetus
