Altered Visions ......

This storm that was forecast was but
a superficial confusion

And yet I tried at times to see
better through my lens of illusion

No my eyes are not empty.... nor are past
dreams that far removed

They always said I had a disquieting side
to me as yet unimproved

I'm fine though now as you may
not have noticed and yet

But who might take the gamble
knowing he'll lose the bet

No ....no catatonic spells of depression
on the horizon today

But a storm front thats rising
leaves the barometric pressure dropping away

Shake it off
shake it off



For those who suffer from depression........ you are never as alone as you think you are !
Reach out a hand........Do it right here !...........:-}....For you!

The problem with depressed people, many of they didn't feels like need any friend.

In my depression times, I found friends is nothing but another source of new pain. I do had friends at that moment but simply pushed them away because what they did only dug on my pain and added salt after it.

In their own way, I guess, depressed people tend to celebrating loneliness as best friend because they think there is any hand will have ability to help them but to run into dream world.

world inside depressed mind surely have unique way of work

Hello, Dad. How are you?

Ahhh...sometimes depression is like having a warm fuzzy coat on. For some, depression can be cleansing. You can come out of it, feeling rejuvenated. But there is a thin line. After my first aortic valve replacement (had 2 operations, contracted a rare infection that left me blind in one eye, lost a GOOD paying job and realizing that a part of me would never be the same. I was angry! The only person I could blame...was GOD. After screaming and yelling at him for two months, wallowing in self pity, I found a bright spot. I don't know how it happen, but I again, blamed GOD. No, I didn't suddenly have a religious awakening..but the old Pat had gone
