Depression is chronic emotional pain.
It increases geometrically- out of proportion.

Denial on Day Three

I love you very much but a lot of things happened and some of them were very hurtful to me.




Eat Worms and Die

When your sponsor and best friend of 19 years tells you to eat worms and die, you know it's time for an attitude adjustment.

You know you've advanced somewhat psychologically when you can accept her "input" with gratitude, well perhaps there are a few moments of hurt vanity. For a while I considered simply casting her out of my life for good, but that would be foolish and repeating a harmful pattern from my family history.

Headache Free on Day 6

Beautiful new day. No pain.
Go on twitter.
Not a journalist, not a pundit, nothing to self-promote.
Just addicted.

20 minutes later.
Bad mood.
Still no headache.

Hurricane is missing. I think he went to die somewhere.
He's been having a happy life for a year here.


First day of no pain after five days of pain. It's almost over and I can't wait to go to bed again.

Feeling guilty I didn't do the million and one things I had on the list.
What list? I know it's around here somewhere.

I've also got my Mama's last list. Don't die with a list .....

Be like Hurricane. He never has a list except eat, drink, sleep and go outside to sleep in the sun. At well over age 10 and a long busy life as unneutered Tom behind him, he began to play again while living here. I caught him chasing his tail.

I always thought I'd play when I got old. Never realized I'd get old from chronic illness before I got the chance to play.

Doldrums on Day 5

Not so sick, not so well.
Just kind of blah.

Able to do gardening. The bees are happy with the scabiosas out front.
A tiny caterpillar yellow and black eating the family jewels milkweed crunch crunch.

Just sitting here mostly waiting to die.
