Gettin' better all the time...

NOT

I hate posting when I'm depressed, I know the post will read like 'whine whine whine' and most readers will go "Next!". But trying to be glib and funny and entertaining when I am really down makes me feel so phony to myself. You know, 'smile when your heart is aching, smile even though it's breaking" and so on.

Don't you hate it when you have an internet friend? or at least a contact, maybe from their blog, or a yahoo group, and you're back and forth like neighbors over the fence, until one day, they're gone. Their email address bounces. The blog is gone. You can't help but feel worried (did they die? Have a horrible tragedy in the family? Lose their job?) and YOU WILL NEVER KNOW. And you begin to think, maybe they weren't even who you thought they were, maybe they were some pimply faced teenager yucking it up at your expense until they got tired of it all and moved on. Maybe they only dropped you, you whiner, cause the gloom factor was 10+ and just reading your posts made them want to slit their wrists. You'll never know this either, but you'll wonder about it, late at night. Indeed you will.
