Don't let that ominous abyss drag you to the depths of despair. I've had my fair share of death and loss and I know I have more to face in the future. I've Been fighting deperession and suicidal tendencies since my early childhood and I'm still fighting. I choose to keep going because I know things are getting better. They will for all of you. Don't give up. we are here for each other for better of for worse. I will lend a hand, an ear, heart or brain to anyone that feels alone and needs a friend. I am always open for a good friend. Regardless of my current condition(s). s*** happens and I won't let it get the best of me and I won't let it interfere with anything or anyone else. Stay furry... Get a hug or more, go live for the moment. ;-)
For the cubs find something to play with or warm up to something cozy. For the fun and enjoyment of it anyways..hugs...
P.S. For those who read my message on the board I appreciate you taking the time to do so. seeing all of the loving people in this string of messages helps quite a bit. Thanks.
