    Easy way to tell: what’s your reaction if you tell yourself to piss off?

    … enjoying yourself seems the opposite of depression…

    … of course you can go blind…

    …and get hairy palms…

    …but those are the side affects/effects of Viagra, too…

    …I am pleasant company…

    …it’s that nagging second voice that questions my every move that is frustrating…

    …I would say it’s my conscious, but it is equally likely to tell me to do it as not to…

    …whatever opinion I form it questions it…

    … except Trump…

    …we both know how we feel about him…

    …I blame Obama…

    …it blames leotards…

    …I blame those impossible burgers…

    …it blames scapegoats…

    …I’m a DH sort of guy…

    …it thinks designated hitters are ruining baseball…

    … but we both know what we think about Trump…

    Don’t have to be depressed to enjoy your own company! You have to like yourself before you can like others…..

    The two go together a lot. When I’m depressed I try to distract myself from myself. But your readers love you!

    After that, he just needed to figure out how matter channeled that force into keeping itself in a state of relative harmonic equilibrium in regard to its environment. Every atom is happy to exist all by itself, but still has the ability to bond with others. Well, so long as its outermost electron shell isn’t full, anyway. Then it doesn’t care about others at all. Turns out you don’t want to dismantle matter, because pure conversion to energy is just too much energy to handle. One lone hydrogen atom proved that. Luckily, nobody was close enough to get hurt. So he took on temporal changes, ’cause he figured that the apparent changes to time in relativity, the ticking clock of quantum packets, must be a whole lot safer to work with.
