TRYING ON SOME NEW BLUE JEANS AT THE TSC STORE IN WICKENBURG THIS MORNING
I had no idea when I turned my computer off Monday night that I wouldn't turn it on again until Thursday morning but that's how depression sometimes affects me when it strikes. I never know when it's coming, I just wake up one morning & it's suddenly upon me like a marauding Lion on an unsuspecting Zebra. When depression does occasionally strike it usually lasts for a day or maybe 3 or 4 but I'm generally able to shake most of it off at some point in that time frame. But not always. I can be marginally functional when this happens & often just spend time in my recliner occupying my mind with mindless television shows & not going out of the house much. Occasionally I'm able to take myself for a drive which I did with Pheebs Wednesday morning but had no interest in taking any photos. And I’ve had no interest in trying to put a blog post together for the past couple days. It's just one of those things that sometimes sneaks up behind me & whacks me over the head & I’m down for the count for a few days. Over the years readers may remember I have blogged about depression maybe half a dozen or more times. Anyway that’s where I am at the moment & we’ll see how things shake out over the next couple days. This too shall pass……………………..
GROANER’S CORNER:(( After hearing that one of the patients in a mental hospital had saved another from a suicide attempt by pulling him out of a bathtub, the hospital director reviewed the rescuer's file and called him into his office.
"Mr. Haroldson, your records and your heroic behavior indicate that you're ready to go home. I'm only sorry that the man you saved later killed himself with a rope around the neck."
"Oh, he didn't kill himself," Mr. Haroldson replied. "I hung him up to dry."
