I was just thinking today while out for a walk to the store, about all of the times that I have been involved in a thread,where people are enjoying themselves and having fun and not being depressed, and somebody comes in yelling about somebody having a crisis and is not getting help. Many times these people will continue top complain for days because of the lack of support. Well this is my thing. I like to stay "happy" if possible and therefore try to avoid situations that bring me down. For one thing, I am NOT a PDOC or a therapist. It is not mandatory that I respond to every cry for help in here. I watch the posts and if I read one that I can relate to, I will share and encourage. I once had many friends in my "friends list", but I no longer do. I do know that the friends that I do have, I can count on for support. If people have so many "friends" why are they so concerned about getting support from others not in their list? Maybe people should really worry about the quality of friends that they have instead of the quantity. I don't care if I only get 1 hug a week. At least I know it was a sincere hug.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
