I guess I'm feeling blue again for no reason, I suppose, but I'm tired of everything. And I do mean everything. I have a cold, now, so even breathing is hard. Sitting is hard, standing is hard, walking even harder.

Meanwhile, all around me people are finding things to enjoy and engross themselves in, and in the end they progress farther, faster, and better than I can. I would think with the economy crumbling, people would whine and cry far more than I ever could. Yet in spite of the chaos, instead of despair there's hope and escape. Why? Where's the suffering of the credit crunch? Where is the numbing, crushing pain that saps all the strength away? Sure there's anger, disgust, and cynicism, but where is the paralyzing misery that renders all ability and dreaming meaningless?

Where is the depression in this depression?

Well if it makes you feel any better/worse a 90-year-old woman did shoot herself in the chest with a shotgun because she was being foreclosed on. Unfortunate bright side is that she lived and the bank forgave the late payments so I guess that won't help you any.

Okay, there was a guy in California I believe who did kill himself and his whole family due to money problems. That might be more what you're looking for.

Isolated incidents mean little unless they happen to someone close to me. I mean, around here two people were stabbed to death the death the other day just for the fun of it, it seems, and not in relationship to the economy.

I'm talking about the well-being of those I interact with. Somehow, they don't seem to be affected by the downturn. And they still have the free time to cook, clean, pursue their hobbies, and have fun.
