I know. I have been absent for freaking ever.
If you have ever experienced the thing called severe depression than you will understand my disappearance.
To put it lightly, I have had a shitty year. I was happily in denial about all of it for a long time. But then when the denial thing doesn't work anymore? Crap. Or as my best friend would say, "Carp!"
In any case, I am alive. Not doing all that well, thank you very much, but I am alive. Been working as best I can and trying to survive the storm of emotions and sadness that I have going on.
I will not go into details here, but suffice it to say that most of my time is spent alone and not very happily so.
If anyone reads this, I congratulate you for even finding it after my long absence from blogging.
I'm going to try to muddle through and start really cathartically write about all the things that have been bothering me and that have happened in the recent months.
I feel very glad for the few friends and my family who have persevered and stuck by me despite my sadness and not having anything good to report for so long. I'm trying to fight my way out of that dark place and see glimmers of hope every so often. Right now, I'll take a glimmer.
So, of course, my funny friend Hank has continued to send me terrible puns, jokes and the occasional picture to brighten my day. Here is a recent favorite! If it can make me smile lately, you know it has to be really funny. Hope it makes you smile, too.
