Wits End?

     When two depressed people get together
Congo Dancers by Cathy Jeffers


  • annoy the crap out of each other?
  • fight about who has the most problems?
  • act nasty and say things they don't mean?
  • compare local mental health facilities?
  • ask if you are depressed and "drinking" or "over-eating"?       
  • admit they never think about you except when they are really depressed?
  • can pronounce their new medication and ask if you have heard of it?
  • walk around like a zombie and forget they were ever in a fog?
  • make you feel better?
  • understand life from the other's point of view?
  • make you wonder why you are friends?
  • wonder can this be healthy?
  • discuss new terms that your therapist came up with and what they mean to you?
  • think writing in a journal is excellent therapy?

The _ T & T Company

I'm writing this poem:

Oh, Oh, Oh  ___ T & T   you are the communication company.

But the real reason you are in business is to create my insanity.

With you digital man, and your catchy "ding, ding... ding" sound
       you pretend to have-- Oh so pleasant technology...
       but you are really......

    Bad, Bad  LeRoy Phone....

    LeRoy Phone

 The baddest Co. in all of the town, badder than Wi-Fi, land 
 and, the towers to prove that too.

   Bad, Bad  LeRoy Phone....

    LeRoy Phone

Well, never go to call them, you'll just get put on hold,
for a company with all their technology,
you'd think they could get you to a real
person, person, person.... Hello? Hello? Hello?

So then you ask for sales and then send you to tech support....
Yes, you are..... Bad, Bad,  A-hole phone.
Technologists you can barely follow.

    Bad, Bad  LeRoy Phone....

    LeRoy Phone

Who crack jokes about you behind their walls...
and snicker at your age.
And they say: Push this, Push this, Click This,
No... Hummm... Lady-
"Do you even know what a Monitor is?"

Well, they're,  Bad, Bad, LeRoy Phone
Missing my old rotary phone. High tech-nol-lo-Gee?
At least I didn't have to be lied to-- by thee.

Oh yes, Bad, Bad Millenniums-too
a paycheck for coffee, the spa, and satire on their
i-phones, "e-KKK a customer. So annoying, Hang-up please!"

Guess, those soccer trophy's for all
wasn't good enough. They grew up to be hired by
Bad, Bad LeRoy Phone, baddest Co. in the whole damn town
Wi-Fi Land. Is sadly like TV-Land for me.
What is their customer satisfaction policy?

Baddest-- than all the rest,
 Hello LeRoy Phone? Just listen to you.
"ding, ding...ding."
Wish I could disconnect on you!!
Just pay, pay, pay, pay- and suck it up
customer- you've got.... _ T &T.
Badder than an old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog.

Friday 13

The world keeps getting more complicated.  I wasn't aware growing up that there was more devastation to come. I remember the Vietnam War.
Those of us with depression suffer our own wars in our heads, so these monumental acts of terrorism become magnified more than we ever wanted.

It was Veteran's Day this week on 11-11.  Then, followed by yet another act of terror in Paris on 11-13-15. In some very sick way, terrorists not only make the world even more dangerous, they also seem to do it with a nod to numerology.

Must we continue to live in fear?
