    Sigh. Want something really depressing? How about just learning that a good friend of yours may well have had his liver fail.

    Life no longer awesome.

    **** that ****. How about realising you#re probably an alcoholic? Or not? Or who knows? All I know is I've had a **** day at work (which I hate) and if I'm gonna get called an arsehole just for following the rules set out in a memo from senior management then **** them. **** them all. I'm drunk half a bottle of Jack tonight, with no intention of going in to work tomorrow. Or Monday. I'm going to keep on drinking, because feeling numb feels a hell of a lot better thann feeling anything else. How about realising you're going tio get in a lot of trouble, but you're sick of putting up with everyone else's **** when you've got your own problems to worry about?

    Just stayed up for 24hrs and drove 6hrs to attempt to watch the shuttle launch from the space center. However, all I got to watch was it being canceled after being out in the cold for 4hrs waiting.

    Looking up my old pre-recession pay slips from when I was earning £500-650 a week.... Not really ruining my life, i'm grateful I am in employment, but it puts things into perspective now i'm lucky if I get over £250 a week. :/

    My job. Basically it is sucking the life out of me.
    On the brighter side, it does bring me closer to that person I mentioned.

    So not only am I getting a divorce, it turned nasty last night. We go from completely amicable to "well, since I know nobody else will have your handicapped ass, I can still let you have sex with me." My personal self-loathing has reached a new all-time low.

    Drinking won't do anything, I can drink all I want and the only thing I feel is alcohol poisoning. The only thing that I have left to me is my computers, and my work. My health is continuing to freefall (they tell me it's because I'm so stressed) and I now have to walk with a cane.

    Therapy isn't too effective in dealing with my hand either (I still drop 50% of items placed in the hand, and can only flip a bird three out of four) so I'm clumsy now, which I never was.

    Sure, others have it worse (I still have a few years before my impending demise) but there's no reason to denigrate another's suffering-each person experiences what they experience, and I believe it's bad form to question the validity of some experiences. If you post in here you have a hangnail, though, you're fair game.

    this thread has turned excessively depressing

    I guess it has its use though...

    just don't do like me and do 180 on the highway when you're pissed off out of your mind
    (happened only once)

    (I'm sorry; I don't really have a hangnail. I was just trying to inject some humour into what is rapidly becoming The Most Depressing Page On The Internet(TM))

    We all need somewhere to vent now and then.

    I dunno about some of the people round here, but I don't have a lot of good friends at all - the one really good friend I have lives 3+ hours drive from me now.

    It helps to just randomly and mostly anonymously spew out the bad thoughts now and then.
