“Will I Ever Feel Happy”
Such familiar words and thoughts I read, it’s like looking into an unholy yet all too familiar mirror.
Diagnosed with depression late teens, first attempt to leave this mortal coil at age 39, diagnosed with the accursed ADD at age 56 and now with the mental clarity afforded by the ADD and continuing Depression medications even more I detest that face I see in the mirror.
My crimes are without number and my hatefulness without end to all who cared and loved me.
Will I ever feel happy? No, I won’t, I can’t, ever.
So kdmcdonald22, take heed, work for your happiness, it’s there, it’s tangible and it’s yours.
Work hard for it lest you become like me.
