Goodbye, Cruel World!
« on: March 02, 2013, 01:16:42 AM »
I've always said that my bitter attitude will allow me to outlive the rest of you -- and evidently I've been correct!

"Our findings revealed that being overly optimistic in predicting a better future was associated with a greater risk of disability and death within the following decade.Pessimism about the future may encourage people to live more carefully, taking health and safety precautions."

Well , if i do make it a few more yrs. at least till I can get my full retirement pension payments ,then I'll be a happy camper, if not, and it cannot  play out that way then, I've had a good run, I didn't think I'd even see 56 or even 57, but alas, here I'm  ;)

I don't know just what the future holds for me, but it's been one-hellva-ride, even if it ends tonight while I sleep  ???

I'm not optimistic and always tend to be waiting for the other shoe to drop.  I'm also suspicious of everyone and questions people's motives all the time (and their character).

Hey Betty, I agree with you, everybody is suspect to me except my otherhalf, I know I can trust him after 20 yrs.  :D

as far as anyone , including most of my family members, not so much, and most of the time, not at all  :(

it's always good to take things with a grain-of-salt and don't believe everything you see, read and hear about  ;)

At least you admit that you are becoming a bitter old queen.

     One is that God loves you and you're going to burn in hell.
     The other is that sex is the most awful, filthy thing on earth and you should save it for someone you love."

"becoming"? I've been bitter since the age of 16.

Actually I'm much more mellow than I once was.

Yup, excessive doses of klonnies will do that to a person.

Don't need 'em. I get all the diazepam I could possibly want/need less than a mere block away from my house. No, not from the local dealer, from my GP.

God! in my nursing days I used to dish that out by the bucket full, it was the only way we could control some of the patients, that and Largactil, oh! did I mention I worked in a Psychiatric Hospital before going Medical... Miss P would have been in love with everyone by the time I had finished dishing out the meds, I would have turned her from bitter to beautiful in a day.... ;D

xanax? so plebeian. And you mock me about pills.

ps: I just threw back 10 klonnies. Pondering five more.

Dur... diazepam is the generic name for Valium. So yes, I mock, Ms Smartypanties. All those klonnies must be fogging your already fogged brain cell. The difference between you and I where pills are concerned is that I don't knock back a month's worth in one gulp like you do.
