There are several things that irritate me in this big old world.
people that say one thing but do another,
Meanness of spirit
I could go on, and on... and on
But there is one thing that has consistantly " bugged me" over the years and that is the
Overuse of the statement
" I am depressed"
I heard it again this morning when in conversation with someone
And be it right or wrong.. I had the overwhelming urge to say
When the dreaded D word was uttered
"Depression is an illness
And a devastating one at that"
You may be despondant,
You may be pissed off,
You may be unhappy
You may be a sour faced old fart
You may be just a crabby old bastard with problems
No friends and a wife who hates your guts
But don't just jump on the helpless bandwagon and say that
Because invariably you're not!
