Depression

No one understands it. Not even those of us who are affected by it.

We can "control" it -- essentially that means we can dampen its immediate effects on the body -- with drugs. Most of the time. But not always.

And each depressive is different, because people are unique. Some people who are clinically depressed have a tendency to break into tears unexpectedly, uncontrollably.

Not me. I have the interesting urge to go for the throat of the next person who pisses me off and sink my teeth in.

Kinda like Dexter. With a little Nick Knight thrown in. Those guys I understand. "Anger Management" is for pussies.

Suddenly, I'm hungry.

I get it - my hubby is the exact same way. Doesn't care about anything or anybody (except me and the Bug) when his CD is being difficult, but his temper ... well, that's a whole 'nother story. Anger Management? Lots of WoW happening those days ... once he makes it home from work with no blood being shed. You are not alone!

You are a brave person. So is my housemate, who is never in any danger, but gets to see the eye of the storm up close and personal.

You'll be down for the twelfth, yes? I'm sooooooooo looking forward to that concert! Tempted to count sleeps already...

I just added you to my sidebar. I couldn't make up my mind which of your blogs to add, so I just put up your profile page. That takes care of them all in one link.

Oh fooey. I guess that means I'd better get off my lazy butt and start writing again! Talk about incentive ...
