    The good news after endless months of struggling and trying to come to terms with job loss,divorce and health problems ( all at the same time ) is that I know now that I have lost the fight to ever get out of this misery.
    The uncertainty and all the false hopes: that's gone. Reality and certainty have set in.
    I would have probably managed to deal with up to 2 of these issues,but all 3 of them happening at the same time and the fact that I have
    been under constant negative stress for the last 3 years ( that's how long I have fought the good fight before having to accept defeat now ),
    all of this has shown me at least that I don't need to have illusions anymore.

    When I posted a while ago here I still had a faint glimmer of hope left,though I was already panicking deep inside.
    But I refused to give up hope and I felt i had a very strong will to go on living.
    Now I have lost the fight for good.In the last few weeks the last doubts have been cleared.
    I am extremely exhausted but at the same time I feel a great relief as I can see clearer now.
    I am not interested to go on under such abysmal conditions as there is no more change to be expected.

    It's a pointless exercise to post this here really, I am at a loss why I am doing this.
    it seems a pathetic reflex to go on about one's misery.My apologies.But I have turned into a pathetic
    piece of misery so it seems,though I would stress that I am not depressed nor a pessimist in life.

    The good news is: the garbage collector will be calling very soon and will pick up what's left for him.
    So this will be an orderly affair,clean and tidy,no crumbs left.
    And nothing will stop me in this.

    thank you total eclipse.
    I can assure you that I am not depressed. I never was ,it's not in my nature.
    I am very calm and clear headed.
    But the problem is that the very thing that could save me ( which you have rightly identified ) is being taken from me. And that is a development I can't do anything about,but I always knew that I would be unable to accept that one disappearing. I have tried everything to avert this,but it didn't work.

    So going to hospital or the doctor to get some pills ( what for ?? ) won't do the trick. My problem would not be going away because of this.
    It 's just a scheme of numbing the pain. I don't want to manipulate myself into ignoring the hard facts. That is not a solution.

    Sometimes life has obstacles that are too hard to live with. And I do believe it is up to the individual to decide whether it is willing to accept any disaster under the sun or pull the plug if it becomes a permanent disaster. Some may be stronger in this,others weaker.

    That's just how it is.

    But I am grateful that you took time to reply.
    Thank you for that.

    I am so sorry you are in this much pain. You are a musician? A painist? I used to be a pianist. I lived to play. I was the piano. But eventually the drive and love went away when I was in my 40s. Long story. But I have so much deep respect for people who love music. Which apparantly you do.

    The world needs people who love music. Music is so much about vibration. Mozart was a master for sure. But I think he still is. I hope you do not leave the world. Because the world needs every artist. every musican every lover of music that we can have. I know this is a selfish comment. And yet I write it. I know how hard it is to be alive in the current society that has no support for the artist, for the musician for the right brain connection. And still I hope you stay. :hug:

    Hey Mozart,

    From one pathetic piece of misery to another... Hold out for a bit more mate.

    Jesus, it feels kind of hypocritical telling someone to hold on for a bit longer when I'm staring at <Mod Edit - Acy - Methods> an hour ago, but, fuck... There's got to be something more to this, hasn't there mate?

    And, well maybe I'm not the best person to give out advice at the moment. But for just one more night, one more day, one more week - hold out a little longer. Tell the world to fuck itself. Try and quit the things that brought us down to this hell. Try and claw out of the pit we've found ourselves in... Claw back into the light... Tell your old boss to go fuck himself. Tell your wife/husband she/he is a tramp... Get yourself a backpack and take to the mountains. Try and find the person you were before - everyone else, circumstance, fate, whatever - turned you into that stranger looking back at you from the mirror.

    That person isn't you mate... But you - the real you - is desperately trying to get back to real world and maybe we (you, me) needed to experience what we're experiencing to shake us out of this bullshit stupor. Maybe we need to experience this shit so that person - the real you - can take one more breath, a breath of fresh air, and start living our own fucking lives... Not doing what everyone tells you to do... Not doing what you think is right for the betterment of everyone else. But doing what is right for the betterment of yourself.

    I'm just saying, it's time to look after yourself for a change, and tell everyone else to fuck off. Live for yourself... You're no longer scared of death, so maybe it's time to blaze through life... Better to be a bright flame than to just fizzle out.

    Mozart, as you've probably guessed from this post, I'm not a calm or clear headed man... And no, I'm not very refined. But I do know that rhythm exists everywhere... In the flap of a birds wings, on the wind hitting your face, in your still beating heart. There's music everywhere, it's not always pleasant. But maybe it's time to just listen to the music mate... Take it for what it is... Suck it in and experience every nuance.. If you can't listen to it, just try to feel it and find other ways to make it. Stop listening to the dirge mate. Head for the hills and live for yourself - even for a little longer.

    Thanks flowers and curzone.
    I am not in a " I am going to leave today " mode ,as it would be impractical and sort of unrealistic due to the fact that it will take some rather extensive traveling etc.
    But I have come to the conclusion that giving up the the one decisive area would finish me off ( mentally ) anyway. So no extra harm done really.

    But then : I have gone through hell and back,so even a small sign from the Gods might do a lot of good .I am not an unreasonable guy and -- I have to repeat this-- through all the disasters I have fought hard for years as I am neither depressed nor inactive. I have probably more energy and pigheadedness than its good for myself.
    But at this point now I was regrettably forced to look at my situation again and decide in a rational and composed manner where I finally draw the line,as recent developments went far beyond my worst expectations. Pity that,really. And I am not sarcastic here.It's serious and a rather sad affair.
    But I do believe in accepting defeat where it is a defeat. Once the referee has blown the final whistle it is sportsmanlike to say: "yep,we lost,game over."

    It comes all down to acceptance.

    We can accept virtually anything and adapt to most situations. I know that.

    But in the end it's in the eye of the beer holder whether one choses to do so , And I know with pretty accurate certainty what I can permanently take and what not.

    PS curzone: you were preparing your exit and then you take time writing to a bugger like me ,in the midst of all this ? I can only say a lame "Thank you" ,and you are a helluva guy. What a pity we are both at a point where instead of going for a pint we fiddle around with leaving the big stage. It definitely sucks.
    So I return the favor and say to you: put that ..... of yours away ( I saw your post before it was edited ) and postpone it until next week ...OK ? One drowning guy trying to save another ? A situation like on the Titanic...nice twist that one....lol...
    Thanks flowers, I agree with you,but there is a limit what I can take,and that limit has been reached.

    Mozart, I can relate to what you are going through. I am going through a rough divorce involving two kids. My financial situation is in the toilet and that is despite working two jobs for many years!!!! For now I have my health, but I feel like I can't take much more before having a nervous breakdown (and there goes my health).

    You didn't mention whether or not you have kids, but my kids are who keep me going. If not for them, I would be infinitely more likely to "pull the plug". How 'bout we keep each other going? What do you say mate?

    Thank you mbczion and total eclipse.
    @mbczion: I am sorry to hear that you are going through such a rough spot, but I think it will sort itself out in the end,won't it ? Once the divorce is settled you will start to be able to breathe again. I can only guess how it must feel,but I don't have kids myself...let's keep each other going then for the time being...but I don't know how long that will be.
    @total eclipse I cannot go into details here but my teaching position is also stuffed now,but that's a complicated,rather Kafkaesque story.As said before: it's a matter whether one can accept that,but I cannot as the sum of it all comes down to a complete collapse of what defined my existence. It's just simply too much,and in the previous years I had no respite,no good news whatsoever,just one disaster followed by the next one...
