So far, this year has been tough on many people. Everyone was hoping tha the end of 2009 would make way for a fresh start and maybe a better year. However, this is not the case. Mostly, people are stressed. Stressed about life, about work, about the future, about the past, and the list goes on and on. Somehow, everyone also feels as though they are stuck in a box without sufficient oxygen.

All that got me thinking, is depression contagious after all? Maybe it isn't the clinically approved definition of depression, but it applies nonetheless. When you feel so low that you really don't see the light at the end of the tunnel, when everyday normal activities seem to need more energy than they should, when your energy levels are so low that just getting out of bed seems to suck all the energy out of you, and finally, when you really can't breathe anymore... what else can it be but depression?

Looking around, you really feel that no one is happy. No one is "mirta7"- comfortable-, and the fight is too much to bear for anyone.

Another thought crossed my mind when I was stuck in traffic today:
Do people go insane because there is something wrong with the chemicals in their brain, or do they drive themselves insane? Is it our thoughts that drives us insane, thoughts that chip away at your sanity so slowly that you don't realize it?

Such happy thoughts to have at this time of night, eh?

Well, I wont spread any more negativity, so I'm out.
