Stop making sense

For all youse guyz with your mood disorders [:p]

One of my favorite Shaw quotes has always been:
"The secret of being miserable is to have the leisure to bother about whether you are happy or not. The cure is occupation."

SO here's some expert opinion about the value of distraction: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/12/29/op...29twilson.html

Even "debriefing" might be interfering with the normal healing process.

"The trick is to go out of our way to be kind to others without thinking too much about why we're doing it. As a bonus, our kindnesses will make us happier."

RE: Stop making sense

Oh, and posting that would have been my productive act of kindness,
if only I'd been able to resist thinking about it [xx(]

Marzden....

Please stop confusing passion with mood disorders....

They are completely and entirely different...[:p]

Socrates said "The unexamined life is not worth living" however.... I stopped seeing my shrink several years ago when I started to realize that I just had a bad case of "Paralysis of Analysis"... so I guess I'd agree with some of what you're saying....
