I dont get it, my life is actually very good when you put it down on paper. I push myself to stay busy and not think about things too much. Then the lump comes in my throat and I am SOOOOO depressed. I feel so alone and like nothing matters. I feel disconnected and out of place. I see everyone else out there and they have genuine reasons to feel bad. I feel guilty for feeling bad. I dont tell those around me because I dont want to burden them. I act happy and upbeat and all the while I am thinking - why go on? I am going to take another Xanax - have another drink and hide it. I just cant seem to find the point of anything. I will have a voice in my head say 'is this all life is? just one scheduled distraction after another to keep you from knowing that in the end it really means nothing. Distraction - work; distraction - school; distraction - entertainment' - I really hate that voice by the way :) I prefer and am angered by the one that I equate to a drill sergeant - 'Why are you complaining?! People over there have it so much worse! get up off your lazy butt and do something!' I am so bored by life and nothing seems exciting anymore and I think if this is it for the rest of my life - I dont want it. Why cant I just accept the good things in my life and quit complaining? I really hate depression - I know it will pass. It always has in the past. I just get so low sometimes I just dont know that I can make to the end of the low periods.

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? 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...
