Comments for … My heart’s in Accra http://www.ethanzuckerman.com/blog Ethan Zuckerman’s online home, since 2003 Thu, 19 May 2016 18:05:49 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.5.2 Comment on Life, Only Moderately Messed Up, part 2: Getting Help by Nikita Katenga-Kaunda http://www.ethanzuckerman.com/blog/2016/05/12/life-only-moderately-messed-up-part-2-getting-help/comment-page-1/#comment-6381356 Thu, 19 May 2016 18:05:49 +0000 http://www.ethanzuckerman.com/blog/?p=5277#comment-6381356 This may sound selfish, but I’m glad I’m not the only one who goes through dark patches. At times, reading your post was almost akin to reading a confession of my own life. It can be horrible, that dark void that offers no semblance of hope. I go through patches of it from time to time, but less so these days in comparison to the past.

I must say it is incredibly heartening and inspiring how you are handling the divorce. It must be a very painful thing, but it’s good that you’re being resilient. I agree with you when you say being miserable robs us of what little time we have.

Keep your head up :)

Comment on Life, Only Moderately Messed Up, part 2: Getting Help by Alanna http://www.ethanzuckerman.com/blog/2016/05/12/life-only-moderately-messed-up-part-2-getting-help/comment-page-1/#comment-6381172 Mon, 16 May 2016 08:09:47 +0000 http://www.ethanzuckerman.com/blog/?p=5277#comment-6381172 The end of a marriage is terribly painful, and I am glad you have good support in facing it. I hope all of you can come through it happy and emotionally intact.

I spent most of 2007-2008 in a fog of postpartum depression. There were so many genuinely bad things happening in my life – mainly my father’s steep decline into dementia – that I thought my feelings were appropriate. Sad and scared and lonely seemed like the correct response to my life. The depression resolved on its own as my baby got older, but it was as you rightly point out such a ridiculous fucking waste of human life to be so miserable. I could have faced the actual bad in my life so much better if I had been functioning on all systems.

Comment on Life, Only Moderately Messed Up, part 2: Getting Help by Debbie Dilley http://www.ethanzuckerman.com/blog/2016/05/12/life-only-moderately-messed-up-part-2-getting-help/comment-page-1/#comment-6380974 Thu, 12 May 2016 16:00:12 +0000 http://www.ethanzuckerman.com/blog/?p=5277#comment-6380974 Ethan, I vividly remember reading your post from a couple of years ago, and I remember saying “that’s me, someone else is like me”. I’m glad that you are going through this process and are so open about it. I’m going through something similar but not by choice….my body is tired of my brain being the one in control and I’m in the middle of a war. I’m also on meds for the first time….which is such a strange experience in general. Much love and hugs to you!
