When the laughs stop


One year ago..such sadness behind the face we all loved..

DID I SAY THAT OUT LOUD

So the horrid beast of depression has taken another wonderful soul..such sadness ..such loss for the loved ones left behind..

I cannot imagine a human who at some point has not felt the cloud of depression like an overcoat of gloom..the sense of never seeing another joyous moment ..or a time when the mind is free from turmoil.

The great tragedy is we know more of the solar system and depths of the ocean than we do our own Psyche..so why is funding for research into this field always in short supply..and I mean worldwide.

I have grown up with a parent whose entire life from adolescence onwards has been a series of deep depressions…psychoses..hospitals..drugs…delusions..misdiagnosis…on and on..

I and my siblings were born into world of confusion and pain..we have fractured relationships with each other..in fact only one sister and I have a loving relationship…mental health has a devastating ripple…

    • Simba it would most surely have been..watching you can see the mania..and sadly they are at their most productive at that time..which is why so many refuse drugs..who wants to be flat and level when they can soar..i am sorry you have had this in your family too..it’s a mongrel of a thing..would not wish it in any family…xxx

  1. It really feels like yesterday, doesn’t it? I knew him for the great actor he was and I’ve watched all his movies. It was a great loss indeed.

    Depression can be horrible indeed and I think in the world we live in now, with the economy that’s so bad, a lot of people that never thought they could be depressed, know what it can do. I am sorry that you had to go through things like that as well Bev. I don’t wish a life like that to anyone.

    Lots of Hugs to you and the furry kids. ♥

      • Yes, he was well-known after all. Unfortunately when something like this happens to any ordinary person like your or me, no one except our close family and friends will know about it.

        That’s true indeed. When you live with depression you don’t want to make everyone else around you depressed. I know I don’t. You keep up the smiles and do the best you can.

        I don’t think most of us that had problem like that, didn’t think it was our idea of a perfect childhood. I sometimes wonder if we chose our parents or if they chose us? 😀

        That’s true. It made us stronger in some ways. Some days it feels like that and other days not. As John Denver used to say : Some days are diamonds, some days are stones.

        I am lucky that I have my hubby and boys. If I didn’t have them, I wouldn’t have been here now and that’s a fact. 😀

        Thanks for the hugs. Much appreciated. ♥

        • I agree sweets i think maybe we choose our parents for the life we need to learn from..i have had some bad times nothing too too bad but bad enough to have me not want to get out of bed. If it was not for the furries back then and having to get up and care for them i would have stayed in a funk…and yes you can feel like you must stay happy but some days it is hard…being honest with how you feel i think is the best thing..Love you to bits and hoping your days are bright..we all deserve that 🙂 Loves Bev xx
