Hey Dood, that's some good words. Thanks for posting thoughtful and often mind blowing information.
It's a strange experience here, to say the least. The door was open so, I thought I'd say hello.
Hope all is well with you.

Appreciate you saying. :)

I am about to go to sleep.

Hope you enjoy this one as well.

It is nice when a word encapsulates a feeling of a 'thing'.. we haven't been able to quite define exactly..

Hyperbole and a Half did one of the best descriptions of depression I've ever seen.

The link is almost always banned here.

If my life was a movie, the turning point of my depression would have been inspirational and meaningful. It would have involved wisdom-filled epiphanies about discovering my true self and I would conquer my demons and go on to live out the rest of my life in happiness.

Instead, my turning point mostly hinged upon the fact that I had rented some movies and then I didn't return them for too long.

The late fees had reached the point where the injustice of paying any more than I already owed outweighed a p a t h. y.. I considered just keeping the movies and never going to the video store again, but then I remembered that I still wanted to re-watch Jumanji.

I put on some clothes, put the movies in my backpack and biked to the video store. It was the slowest, most resentful bike ride ever.

When I was a kid I think there were at least 2 movies we never returned. I don't remember what they were though.

One of my favorite movies was My Neighbor Totoro every time we went to the movie store I had to have it!

Ponyo is another cute one.

These need to be on glp. Lol

She got depressed after she moved to Oregon. Which that time frame, was depressing.

Hope she is still out there, creating ..

Yet there I was, casually wishing that I could stop existing in the same way you'd want to leave an empty room or mute an unbearably repetitive noise.

That wasn't the worst part, though. The worst part was deciding to keep going.

When I say that deciding to not kill myself was the worst part, I should clarify that I don't mean it in a retrospective sense. From where I am now, it seems like a solid enough decision. But at the time, it felt like I had been dragging myself through the most miserable, endless wasteland, and — far in the distance — I had seen the promising glimmer of a slightly less miserable wasteland. And for just a moment, I thought maybe I'd be able to stop and rest.

But as soon as I arrived at the border of the less miserable wasteland, I found out that I'd have to turn around and walk back the other way.
