I love Al's clever strategy of disarming apology, and inviting investigation.
Other than cases like this, where apology is actually a Smart Defense that WILL bite the christofascists right back in their degenerate asses.......
Enough apologetic backing down.
The wrongs of Democrats belong to individual's poor decisions as a general rule, or they are wrongs of treating Our Friends Across the Aisle with undeserved courtesy.
They are nowhere near the traitorous systems that pukes started building decades ago and uphold as a unified group.
Just found this article:
"Depression doesnt go away for everyone. For most people, depression is temporary and passes naturally or once the person has expressed the feelings and resolved the thoughts causing the depression. But there is a small percentage of people who can talk about their issues, express their feelings, take very good care of themselves emotionally, even take medication and have a great life, and still be depressed throughout their lives. They may have periods of feeling good, periods of feeling less bad, and periods of feeling horriblefor these people, the depression never goes away permanently.
Major depressive disorder is the medical term for repeated episodes of a very intense, deep depression that is disabling and enormously painful. People who are bipolar experience similar disabling depression during their depressive phases. Often, between episodes, people return to a functional, happy state. Sometimes people can also have a milder depression, even between episodes of major depression."
The paragraph below describes my brand of depression very well. I hadn't realized that there was a type of Major Depressive Disorder like this Atypical:
"There are also people with atypical depression who can be in a deep depressive episode and yet appear to come out of it long enough to laugh or enjoy something briefly before sinking back in, or can act normal for short periods. This can be confusing to both the depressed person and to other people. This isnt an indication that the person is any less depressed or any less in danger than someone in a major depressive episode who doesnt have those brief breaks. Its just a different form. Atypical depression is also characterized by feeling emotionally paralyzed, physically leadenbarely able to move or engage in any activity, and often overeating, oversleeping, and experiencing sensitivity to rejection."
Hi DU friends, I haven't been by this forum. Yeah I'm one of those people who pop in when the internals are too much.
Getting on the right meds has helped a lot...but I've been feeling real down lately.
I had planned to go out to a resistance activity today but I'm so down and it's freezing cold and grey outside. I just want to curl up and continue isolating. Which feels good until later...days or weeks later.
Obsessively reading politics probably isn't helping.
Thank you, I just needed to say it out loud.
Sorry I can't remember the exact year. Over one million people at the March for Women's lives, yet U.S. media effectively censored it.
Now, there ain't no silencing us!
