Sometimes I bury a post without tags and never cross post or link it anywhere. This one above is over 4 months old and currently has only 6 views on it, at least 3 of them were probably me on my phone checking for typos and listening to the video while I moved around the house with my phone in my pocket. I wasn't sure whether I wanted to share some stuff yet. That's all it is, a few words and a video, but you can click the pic to go there if you feel the need to.
I'm still not very good at seeing how I write actually communicates into other minds. Yesterday I discovered an error of thought transmission that had me facepalming like crazy, since the error may have been what catapulted that post into the all time most viewed ever for months. Since I don't encourage comments (#aspienado) and I've never gotten feedback on it (I love lurkers), I'm afraid I might have left a wrong impression. I was grind-writing through a particularly glitchy day, forcing my brain to focus, and going back now, it looks like something really different from what I was trying to say.
I'm not a suicidal person. Here is why. Yes, I have been living with fairly severe depression for many years, and yes, I've had some frightening experiences with it. Someone in my family committed suicide years ago, and although I did think about it myself one year, I logically deduced it wouldn't relieve any pain or anguish, whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. I think my argument is solid and valid, and so I have stuck it out all this time.
