Still here...

Hey, everyone. I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. Not having great times here and it's hard to make enough sense of it to blog coherently. But I'm still here; slogging through each day. Hopefully I'll have it in me to say more later.

Hang in there. Sounds like you're going through a rough time. In Feb. I was put on a three week assignment that was very isolating and I found it really worsened my depression. Since getting back to the office I've been doing much better. Writing can be lonely. Maybe social interaction would help. Feel free to check out my blog or write me: http://www.reflectionondepression.typepad.com.

it doesn't usually help much when someone says it to me, but i still wanted to say -- i am sending good thoughts your way, and you're not alone. i don't remember how i came across your blog but i've checked in on it every now and then for awhile, and appreciate your perspective on a lot of things, including depression and social anxiety, which i also go through from time to time. the last six months have been some of the roughest i've ever been through. i just keep reminding myself that eventually i always swing back around to feeling better again (at least i always have so far), and in the meantime, like you said -- i'm still here, still making it through each day. connecting with others is hard when i feel this way, but it does make me feel better when i can manage it. so thanks for sharing a bit of your experience, and best wishes to you for a warm and wonderful spring.

I just came upon your blog today and decided that to make sense of it I would have to start at the beginning. I'm already drawn in. So I'm still back in 2007. Ergo, I am going to be retroactively sending comments on the entries if you are interested Mr. TPOH. Already, I find your sense of humour amazing and it is depressing in a way that it's always the wrong people that suffer from depression. I also have this theory that half of the population suffers from low self esteem when they are usually the better half, and, well, the fact that the other half suffers from such an undeserved sense of self esteem is proof that God has a sense of humour. Not that I'm religious or anything. Like why the hell isn't Howard Stern plagued with guilt and shame? Why does someone like Heidi Montag feel free to share her opinion about anything when she should be too ashamed to? That sort of thing. These things are brought to the forefront of my thoughts this past week since my sister's friend committed suicide last week. IT's always the wrong people who do these things and so sad. The kind ones. The gentle ones. The abused ones. The self doubting ones. In fact, depression is the opposite of aggression. During my darkest days, sometimes the only thing that kept me going was that I could not bear to let "the bastards" (whatever they may be) win. I could expand on that thought exponentially but it comes down to that sometimes. Don't let the bastards defeat you.

All blogs seem to exist in the same way. Like this. Long out posts. Hmm. I like this, but with out a stream, how can i watch it? I too am a failure.
