I've come to the conclusion that it is probably something that will never be "cured" just as an alcoholic will always be an alcoholic.

Anti-depressants not cutting it anymore. Not interacting with my kids or wife. Staring at the computer screen. Everything grey. Things have to get better.

Great Times

Posted on January 12, 2010 at 8:11pm 2 Comments

Nothing profound I just felt the need to let everyone know I had a great night with my girls. They're great kids and I'm having a moment where I realize how lucky I am.
