Okay, one point for Ron.
Before I answer the frivolity of this post I will comment on the seriousness of it.
Ron is absolutely correct, if there is a chance, see your doc... I spent many years inside of a bottle of burbon (or vodka, beer, wine, gin...) and thought my morose feelings were a result of that abuse... not until I sobered up and stayed that way for a year did I realize the feelings were still the same. A visit to the doc, trials with some varying medications and now I am much better, sober for 3+ years and no longer depressed.
Being a man, I would have never have thought I could be "Depression". However, clinical depression among men is more common than we are led to believe. As men, we are conditioned to pass it off, to "cowboy up" and go on with our lives. But chemical imbalance can destroy us, or make our lives miserable, if left unattended. Okay, enough sermonizing...
I like the Dark, but there is so little commenting going on in there my rather large and extremely fragile ego can't handle it. The Open forum moves so fast and again, I go unnoticed... So now I float through all forums, but I think I will be settling down in the Corner Pub and the forums in the "Sanctuary".
Yesterday is ash, tomorrow is smoke; only today does the fire burn.
