      Hey, Jen. When I read your post, I thought - aha! she gets "me." Very glad I did your post justice. :)

    Thank you so much for this article. I'm going to work tomorrow (yeh, Sunday, whoo hoo) and print it out.  And put it under my pillow so I can have sweeter dreams that the ones I'n now having.

    Thank you so much for this article. I'm going to work tomorrow (yeh, Sunday, whoo hoo) and print it out.  And put it under my pillow so I can have sweeter dreams that the ones I'n now having. Those self improvment dreams where someone like my mom is telling me yet, after 63 very long years, to just snap out of it.  Jen's description of my depression is pretty spot on.  I had read it earlier in the week but had other stuff going on and I didn't even internally repspond.  I don't know how ya'all feel, but I do recognized that description of depression that Jen puts forth.  And the opera story.  I've had those experiences (I'm 63, Ive had many similar experiences to most of you.) and I come away thinking "Is she nuts. No.  Am I nuts yes.  But in this case she may need some other outlet or at least a hobby"  Thank's for the post, John
