Hi Danny Boy I have always found you to br truthful and honest in what you write, we all have the devil in us when something dtrikes a chord with us, i don't think any one would or should turn their backs on us when that happens, as fro your fight with medication and illness you get 100% support from me my soup friend, have a great christmas and worry not see you in the new year, all the best Big O

Stand for who you are Dan, no one is 100% identical. - I've read much here on the blog pages, that is what I would call it: a lot of crap!! P-Soup is not your life, not mine either ..... even though we spend a lot of time here. - If I do not have anything nice to say to you on the P-Soup, I can close my mouth. - Why spoil the day for each other, when you can make someone's day with kind words. (a nice word - a hug - a smile ... it costs so little ..... it's free!!) - My Christmas or new year wish: SHARE POETRY, FRIENDSHIP AND LOVE!! / / f.e.f. oxox Anne-Lise :)

Hullo, Danny-Boy. This is an honest blog from you. I wish you the best towards your medication situation. I think you might worry a little too much about things you don't need to worry about so much? But this is probably all part of it, right? Just so you know, when you and I debate passionately about certain topics, even when we are at our "worst"(lol), you are still more civil than a lot of people when they are at their normal functioning level.

Hi Dan sorry to hear of your struggle, I for one have only seen the warmth in your words. Mental ilness is prevalent in my family so I can relate with your pain. It is good you do not choose to suffer in silence and that you have seeked out help. This speaks to the quality of your heart. I also applaud your courage in speaking out .

Tears for your struggle, sadness for how u feel. But joy in that you do have a poetry soup community of which there are many who love what you write and share. But think of those that give you happy thoughts whether a comment on a poem or soup mail with words of care., who understand you and who like having your around......Good to get the love back from people when you send it out!. Your heart is the strength and thats what wins the race...always - xx Shaz

Dan, sometimes expressing yourself in certain ways is okay. Hearing U out here on your blog, makes it easier 2 understand what's going on with U. No 1 here on the soup is perfect, sometimes feeling the insanity & sanity makes things clear when touching bases with your heart & God. Life is confusing & here on the soup we have no time for breakdowns. So please do us all a favor, & be the fun smiling poet we know U R. Even if you are not happy because one day you wake up confused. Smile for us, or find the poets whom make you smile. I do it all the time, and they seem to take my blues away at times. And about them pills, do they help stress... cause I am a bit stressed out right now LUV~ya~PD

Sorry to hear about the depression. My hubbie fights it too and I know more than a few here at Soup who have a battle with it. You are not alone. I wish only the best for you and hope you have a great Xmas season!

We all have a cross to bare(SP?) in some way or another... I did not see what you are referring to. But such a blog as this will certainly bring us more together. Your friend...Prayers and wishes for a better tomorrow. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from my family to you and yours.

Hi Dan I have just read this I and can almost understand some of it. I threw a tantrum this morning and my latest post shows it. I really do like to help if I can but sometimes I do take other peoples problems on and then find I have no one to help me with mine and so I threw my dummy out this morning in sheer desperation. I am happy to say I have a knight in shining Armour to help when I shout and that is a big relief and it means I can carry on. Stick with it Dan we are a stubborn lot here and if we can help we will xx

Thanks for sharing this Dan. I know it's not easy to put yourself out there sometimes, but I suppose that's what writers do, in a sense. I'll be praying for you - that you will have peace of mind and the kindness and joy in your heart will overcome any negative or hurtful thoughts/feelings. Merry Christmas! :) Tanya
