If you are feeling really low maybe an emergency hotline would be helpful.

As for 'Comfortably Numb'...I often think of that as a safe place to move through things that can be overwhelming.

Sometimes memories, long buried, poke back through the surface and catch us off guard. I am sorry you are feeling bad. I wish I could offer more than a virtual hug.

I've been here before, but maybe not with the clarity of this morning.
I was half assed thinking this could be a discussion. I guess I should have posted it elsewhere.

I think that here is a good place for you to have posted this. No worries about that.

And as for your OP:
Yes, I know this feeling too; Sadly much too well.
Please make sure to talk to somebody if this feeling gets stronger, ok?
Feel free to drop me a message if you like, or vent it here.

For my neighbor to the North.....Heart Hug

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Is that how it is for those of you who have those feelings?

Not so much anymore. Quite a bit as a teenager, of course - fairly standard. Oddly, I think I thought more about it while married than I have since being divorced.

Coincidentally, I just finished watching Hamlet - as fresh today as it was 400 years ago. Lots of death in that one - Shakespeare knew what people thought about.

I think it is a common thing to contemplate death, suicide, one's mortality. Understanding that life is in general, a pain in the ass but, the alternative only offers a ticket to who the fuck knows, and it's one way - a no return pass.

Death will come soon enough.
One fears. And hopes.
But hey, somebody's got to do the living. Shy

Act 3
Hamlet

To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them: to die, to sleep
No more; and by a sleep, to say we end
the heart-ache, and the thousand natural shocks
that Flesh is heir to? 'Tis a consummation
devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep,
To sleep, perchance to Dream; aye, there's the rub,
for in that sleep of death, what dreams may come,
when we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
must give us pause. There's the respect
that makes Calamity of so long life:
For who would bear the Whips and Scorns of time,
the Oppressor's wrong, the proud man's Contumely,
the pangs of despised Love, the Law’s delay,
the insolence of Office, and the spurns
that patient merit of the unworthy takes,
when he himself might his Quietus make
with a bare Bodkin? Who would these Fardels bear,
to grunt and sweat under a weary life,
but that the dread of something after death,
the undiscovered country, from whose bourn
no traveller returns, puzzles the will,
and makes us rather bear those ills we have,
than fly to others that we know not of.
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
and thus the native hue of Resolution
Is sicklied o'er, with the pale cast of Thought,
And enterprises of great pith and moment,
with this regard their Currents turn away,
And lose the name of Action.


A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move to higher levels. ~ Albert Einstein

Hey Skyking, was it my "sibling order" post that started this? I just want to say that I'm concerned. While I'm a "newbie" I get the sense that everyone here has value, really good value. Hang in there, ok?

Don't worry about your post, hobo. It was appropriate, and it sparked a disproportionate response in me.
I tended to bury, ignore, hide away the sordid details of the worst years of it. The blinders slipped off and I was confronted by the profound sadness of my mother and I.
She had lost a son and I a brother, father left, my sister's husband was crushed and paralyzed, all over the course of a couple of months. We retreated into separate personal hells.

RE: I think I get it now
I'm sorry skyking. I read your post over and over all day. But I could not respond.

In my head I'd think...I should say...but I can't say...

Those feelings I have & the things that happened, started so long ago they are now a part of who I am.

I can't separate them.

On Saturday nights, after my wife & kids go to sleep, I sit in the dark alone because it feels comfortable.

That monkey has been sitting on my shoulder for some 50 years.

Endorphins are an antidote, no matter how they are obtained. And if all else fails, there is always chocolate cake.
