The Reality of Depression

Hey, did I ever mention on this blog that I once had a bout of depression?

I had a communication with an ex, who accused me of leaving her at a time when she couldn’t have children. My ex said I had ruined her life. I was floored. At no time did she ever mention to me she wanted to have children with me. I did everything I could to prevent having children with her, because I would have eventually been on one of those daytime talk shows I love so much. Still, if she had ever mentioned it to me, I would have done it. She just didn’t say anything.

Anyway, I started feeling waves … powerful waves … of misery. Basically it went like this, I would go to work, function for eight hours, come home and get in bed. I couldn’t do anything else.

Man, I’m here to tell you depression is a bitch. I had shown no signs of depression before or since. I didn’t know what to do; didn’t reveal it to anyone except a good friend. She said I should go get some help through a therapist; possibly get meds to control it. That pissed me off. I ended up doing a sort of “snapping out of it.” I got out of bed and started doing other stuff.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
