Of all the changes I have noticed since not taking the BP/heart medication and its side effects is the sense of depression has lifted. For the past two years things seemed to be blah and, frankly, I no longer cared. I looked at some of the writing I did on TMF before this and I couldn’t be that. Not me. Whoever he was wasn’t me these days. There are many descriptions of depression but mine is the loss of laughter. A mind that can laugh cannot be depressed. I had stopped laughing and, worse, lost the ability to make others laugh. My writing was stilted and I stopped being able to see the funny side. So my days were essentially coping with depression scenarios: each one a magnification of the possible worse situation. And, even worser, a fixation on all I had done in the past that didn’t work out – and not a whisper about what did.So here’s me dark cloud overhead trying to manage. I did but sourly.So when, in the past few weeks, I found something funny it was like finding a piece of me that had gone and was now back. It is more than welcome.Most medications list the side-effects and I would like to add one: ‘expect a complete loss of humor’. That alone would cause me to run for the hills.A small thing yet to me a milestone. I have bought a video enhancer called The Darbee Darblet and one of the posters on Help with This Home Theater halco said the name reminded him of a 1920’s child film star. So I wrote this: http://boards.fool.com/darbee-darblet-sounds-like-a-child-ac...I don’t think I could have written it a month agoMichaelR
