    Depression fucking sucks. I hope for better days but it’s hard to see in the fog.

      It is hard to see in the fog. Last year was a very hard year for me. But I try to put my high beams on everyday. The worst is not having a reason for depression. Why do I even have it? Hopefully the fog will lift even if it is just for a little bit.

      • Trovoid

        I don’t even have a reason at this point. Just existential fears and loneliness I suppose. Yeah I try to use my high beams as well but sometimes you blow a fuse or the car just doesn’t want to start in the first place. Thanks for your support, may we all see clearer days.

      I am 60 now and have fought thru depression for many years. The “fog” I remember, from in my early 30’s. Professional help and medication brought me thru that era of the disease. Keep fighting it. I am happily married with 2 awesome adult children . A great son and daughter in law. And The 4 most awesome Grandchildren ! All of the above have kept me Alive. Do Not Give Up !!

        Thanks for the encouragement. I would love to have people in my life that make sense to me. I have some friends and family but I prefer to be alone for the most part. Life is rough when you have nobody to open up to. Whether it’s physical or emotional intimacy, it makes all the difference.

        • Kay B

          I know what you mean you prefer to be alone. I have a family of my own and I have anxiety just to be a good mom, daughter and sister that I often miss out on gatherings on purpose. Opening up is very hard. Even when you know you should be telling your family about things that were traumatic in the past….sometimes I just can’t bring myself to do so. I guess sometimes being strong means asking for help. I hope to get there some day.

          • Trovoid

            I hear you Kay. Opening up can be very difficult. I don’t make my mental health issues a secret to those that I know well but getting specific with them is another story. And sometimes you feel like a broken record/a burden so you just don’t say anything. I can only imagine what it must be like being a parent and having to appear strong for the sake of your children.

  • Eleanor

    Love you, Talinda! Thanks for raising awareness for suicide prevention, and spreading love to those in need! What an honor to both Chester and Chris!

    I see why my favorite singer that was alive killed himself… His wife’s an insensitive bitch…

  • Milo Newman

    Chester was murdered by the government and the people who he loved. I’m coming to destroy democracy for such evil.

    • Milo Newman

      And his wife was totally part of his murder.

      • Trovoid

        Might as well reply to yourself.. Most of us can’t stand to listen to the murder conspiracists 😉

        • Milo Newman

          Thats cause you’re just cuck/cuckold cowards…

          • Trovoid

            You are exactly the type of person I’d expect to call people cucks.

          • Milo Newman

            There’s nothing wrong with being a bit of a Nazi… Now quit disgracing my last favorite singer that was alive. He deserves greatness and love to come forth from his passing, not gay trolling from douce bags like you who like to watch your girls get fucked by other guys. Orgies aren’t really in my culture so go ask someone else about that you Niger!

          • Trovoid

            Wow, you seem like the perfect person to carry on his legacy..
            Chester killed himself. And you seem to be projecting. If you’re a gay black man who participates in orgies, just say it. I try not to judge. People are people. You sure have a way with words Milo Newman. Your Daddy Trump would be proud.

          • Milo Newman

            I’m the best, you’re just a queer… That’s why I’m better than you, because I’m straight and you’re not. Nazis don’t even like Trump, read a fucking book idiot…

          • Milo Newman

            I mean, do you really think you have good genes when your eyes are the same color as your shit?

          • Kay B

            What the fuck is a cuck?

      • Kay B

        Ok crazy settle down.

        • Milo Newman

          I know you are but what am I? A cuck is a man, due to racial inferiority, who likes to watch his woman fuck other men.

          • Kay B

            Well that was worth bringing into the conversation. And at least I’m a medicated crazy. You should do the same.

          • Milo Newman

            Meds are for dumb asses…
