Sorrow, Sorrow, Sorrow, Sorrow.....

The tumbleweed rolls, with a right lean, across the ethernet. 

Comments normally frequent are hesitant.   

Regular and constant companions on the web have disappeared.   

With a few strokes of the keyboard, I have alienated myself, and made myself feel bad, for being me. 

Blogging is supposed to be an outlet. A vent for emotions and feelings.   

I spoke, albeit in general, about my "episodes"; how medication helps me keep a balance; but how, more than anything, a cuddle and a touch of the hand from my other half does the rest.  

That is basically all I said.  But i've left people embarrassed and unsure what to say to me. 


I got to go back to hiding.
