Robservations for August 1, 2019

1 Aug

I am on an amazing roller coaster ride with
my life. One day I am sitting on a barge on
the lake having a sunny barbecue and the
next day I am attached to a machine that
removes my blood from my heart chamber,
cleans it and pumps it back into me. Up
days and down days.

Am I the only one? I think not. You may
not be attaching yourself to a machine but
you might be chained to a job you don’t
really like or many other things bringing
you down. Your kids are little jerks sometimes,
your spouse has become your opponent
as much as your partner, your
home/car needs work…

There are a lot of things that can bring us
down into depression. It is quite the journey
and no one is immune. In my feeble
mind I like to think I have earned my depression
with my life situation but I realize
everyone has a lot going on.

What to do about it? I am going to see a
counselor but in the meantime I have a
couple friends dragging me out for fun stuff
(despite my resistance) and helping me
focus on the good side of life.
