Hello Mark, Yes life is not easy. Coping with depression and so many losses in life. It is really crazy. It seems like the world has turned upside down. i know you are coping with so many changes and losses at one time. It must be extremely difficult for you. Today, I am not so depressed for some reason. I don't know why. Yesterday was terrible. My terrible mood swings. I really don't know what I will do with the rest of my life. I start to do something, then I feel so depressed I can barely move or do anything. I hope we can somehow both feel better. I am sad that my relationship with my wife did not work out well. She was so difficult to cope with, but I miss having a wife. I am trying to move on. It seems the older I get, the more crazy things are happening. Life is certainly not getting any easier. I just had a surgery on my right knee. I have some pain now. I am not sure if it will help. Only time will tell.

It is good to see a message from you. I am glad to know you are still alive and fighting with life. It is good to know I am not the only one who is experiencing these problems.

Take care. James

Yes Mark. Some days are better than others. I try to do some things on the good days. It doesn't help that everything is in a lockdown in this country. There seems to be no end in sight to the virus problem. I think they are making great progress in the UK. Here it is very slow going. I feel depressed most days. It is actually quite difficult. Maybe it is better that you take no meds. The meds only cause more problems later on. Yes, it is difficult to win a war against myself. I am glad you are persevering. I know it has been very difficult for you, to say the least. James.

Yes, it is not easy to survive with these mental problems. But it is great you are still able to work and press forward. I know a lot of people are sad during this lockdown. It makes everyone feel more isolated. Not such a nice feeling. It is good to get the COVID vaccine. I will get it as soon as I can. It seems that the UK is doing a good job with vaccinating many people. Take care. I hope you are well. It is a constant struggle.
