Healthy Changes

It has been another long break from writing, just waiting on a reason to put something out there. It's time. I have worked the last five years for a company that deals with the public. Every day was a new challenge and truly never the same. I was in a management position and had, in … Continue reading Healthy Changes

Been Awhile

I haven't written anything much for the last month or more. The reason is pure depression. It's been a struggle for these last few weeks to the extent I am listless and fatigued beyond the ability to function normally. I am working though I have taken quite a bit of time off recently. Thats about … Continue reading Been Awhile

Confused

The boy was confused, the man is defeated. The question that plagues me is whether it was my giving up or just me flat-out not having a chance from the start? The final result, either way you look at it is the same. I have become known as a person who gripes and complains but … Continue reading Confused

Feedback Received

I recently had someone comment that my blog was disappointing because all I did was complain and offer no suggestions for resolution to issues. Let me state once more and make it very clear, this blog is my online journal. Period.

You see depression is always turned on, it is just a matter if the knob is at one, eleven, or somewhere in between. So I am dragging … Continue reading Understanding Depression

I Should Have Been Aborted

Right now, in our country, the debate is raging over who should be our next president. One of the most polarizing issues is based on the ever caustic arguments over abortion rights. Well, I am going to put a twist on this disagreement that you have never considered, and I am going to be very … Continue reading I Should Have Been Aborted

Today

I have been off work for the last three weeks, and today is my last bit of freedom before returning. It has been a mental health vacation. No pay, just relief from the stresses of retail life in this Covid-infected year. Today I am taking inventory. How am I doing, really? Have I made progress … Continue reading Today

Civil Tone Please?

I write a blog and I have to admit it can be pretty negative. I am sixty years old and trying to do things the "nice" way seems to be a futile venture. Admittedly a more sharply worded posture of me against the world might be a losing proposition. No one likes a negative nellie … Continue reading Civil Tone Please?
