    Ya know, I don't know what I was expecting, well, I hadn't really considered that anyone would answer, so thank you all so very much for the well wishes. You can't imagine how much they are appreciated.

    I think I'm finally allowing myself to be happy, and it's touching every aspect of my life.

    If I'm not careful, I'll get all maudlin...

    Welcome home. I can sympathize with the medicine situation. It can make a world of difference.

    R.A.F. and I live in the same, tiny foothills burg. I can report that since he has returned to posting on CQ no local restaurants have burned down, wanton acts of vandalism are virtually non-existant, the nightly temperatures have remained under 80F and the local doughnut shop remains open. I'm not saying there is a link to these items with R.A.F. being off the streets, but let's keep him on CQ for a while...just in case. Oh, all the trash cans on my street were knocked over during the night. For now, I'll blame the local bears, though.

    The world of difference it made was a big surprise...that (in my case) chronic mild to moderate depression is actually easily treatable and once you acknowledge that there is a problem, and that treatment is available, and that you actually seek out that treatment, well, the difference in the quality of life is surprising.

    This is, of course, correct.

    I can report that since he has returned to posting on CQ no local restaurants have burned down, wanton acts of vandalism are virtually non-existant, the nightly temperatures have remained under 80F and the local doughnut shop remains open.
    While it is true that a local restaurant (housed in an old train station, I believe) had a fire back a few weeks ago....that wasn't me, I was asleep.

    ...and when Dolly-O's deep frier went out recently, and there were no donuts for a few days, it wasn't because I broke in the night before to make some "midnight donuts".

    I'm not saying there is a link to these items with R.A.F. being off the streets, but let's keep him on CQ for a while...just in case.
    ...as a wise man once said...what, me worry?


    Oh, all the trash cans on my street were knocked over during the night. For now, I'll blame the local bears, though.
    I was sure I saw a baby bigfoot the other night...turned out to be a dog...

    ....and it's like the fifth time it's happened.

    I'm hopeful. I do know that there is some difference in my basic way of looking at things...it's actually really a very subtle effect.

    These statements seem contradictory. My explanation?....ummm I don't know.

    Thanks...if I can keep out of trouble, then I'll be happy.

    I have noticed that in my latest incarnation, I am more active on more of the board.

    Fact is I have about 20 thread ideas I intend to start, but I don't want to flood the board by starting them all at once.

    I like seeing you back in action R.A.F. You've got the bite and the wit, but with 50% less angst! :-D
