Love (and cats) can be elusive!!!

"I pray to be like the ocean, with soft currents, maybe waves at times. More and more, I want the consistency rather than the highs and the lows." -Drew Barrymore


TED, Table!!!

"I do not doubt that it would be easier for fate to take away your suffering than it would for me. But you will see for yourself that much has been gained if we succeed in turning your hysterical misery into common unhappiness". - Sigmund Freud


Patterns.

"This is my depressed stance. When you're depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you'll start to feel better. If you're going to get any joy out of being depressed, you've got to stand like this". -Charlie Brown


HANG EM HIGH!!!

"I have studiously tried to avoid ever using the word 'madness' to describe my condition. Now and again, the word slips out, but I hate it. 'Madness' is too glamorous a term to convey what happens to most people who are losing their minds. That word is too exciting, too literary, too interesting in its connotations, to convey the boredom, the slowness, the dreariness, the dampness of depression". -Elizabeth Wurtzel (Prozac Nation)


Locked out and dying!!

"If depression is creeping up and must be faced, learn something about the nature of the beast: You may escape without a mauling". -Dr. R. W. Shepherd


TED meets a kindly old woman!!!

"Hiding in my room, safe within my womb, I touch no one and no one touches me. I am a rock, I am an island. And a rock feels no pain; And an island never cries". -Paul Simon


Doggy loves me!!!

"Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open? Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence". -Jalal al-Din Muhammad Rumi


Everyday is the same…

“There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state to another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.” -Alexandre Dumas


TED and self destruction, peas in a pod.

“Misery is manifold. The wretchedness of the earth is multiform.” -Matt LeBlanc


Dropping into the abyss

“I have learned now that while those who speak about one’s miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more.” -C.S. Lewis quotes
