    hello i have been reading the posts on this site for a few weeks now and i just wanted to say it is so nice to see so much concern and understanding
    it is hard to go thru these feelings alone and i can not talk to anyone for i will be judged and ridiculed, told to get a "hobby" or go volunteer somewhere
    how could i help anyone else when i cannot even help myself

    i remembered that song by don mcclean that came out sometime in the '70's i think and it always makes me feel better to hear it
    i hope it is ok to post it here maybe it will touch your heart like it has mine
    anyway thanks for reading my rambling
    stay safe, S

    Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)
    Song by Don McClean

    Starry, starry night
    Paint your palette blue and gray
    Look out on a summer's day
    With eyes that know the darkness in my soul
    Shadows on the hills
    Sketch the trees and the daffodils
    Catch the breeze and the winter chills
    In colors on the snowy linen land

    Now I understand
    What you tried to say to me
    How you suffered for your sanity
    How you tried to set them free
    They would not listen they did not how
    Perhaps they'll listen now

    Starry, starry night
    Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
    Swirling clouds in violet haze
    Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue
    Colors changing hue
    Morning fields of amber grain
    Weathered faces lined in pain
    Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand

    For they could not love you
    But still your love was true
    And when no hope was left inside
    On that starry, starry night
    You took your life as lovers often do
    But I could have told you Vincent
    This world was never meant for one as
    beautiful as you

    Starry, starry night
    Portraits hung in empty halls
    Frameless heads on nameless walls
    With eyes that watch the world and can't forget
    Like the strangers that you've met
    The ragged men in ragged clothes
    The silver thorn of bloody rose
    Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow

    Now I think I know
    What you tried to say to me
    How you suffered for your sanity
    How you tried to set them free
    They did not listen they're not listening still
    Perhaps they never will
