I've battled depression since it's 'infancy' in getting the official
Name! In days of old, people did not speak of it.
They either, were 'put away' somewhere,.....or......well anyway...
What has saved me countless times is surrounding myself with humor! As much as possible!
One of my favorites is Craig Ferguson......he's 'our' age and even tho, yeah it may be a statistical fact that our lives are half over,.. Craig has this 'way' of making it seem 'ok'.....just by his humor, wit, and stupidity......Thanks to him I know the true meaning of laughing till your ribs hurt. !
He makes fun of himself as he ages and I soak it right up!
Humor is true medicine..... ! It's a proven medical fact!
Also proved by scripture in the Bible!
Whoever or whatever it is that can make you laugh, keep recordings on hand. Use it as ammunition when that dark depression cloud tries to take over.
