AtoZ: A is for Apathy

A is for apathy

I was going to write about the time I went to a fancy dress party themed ‘Something beginning with A’ in a tiny sexy Army uniform and got goosed by an Arab and an Apache.

I was, but I won’t.

I won’t because the start of April has coincided with the re-emergence of the black dog of depression. I wonder if Winston Churchill ever named his or if, like mine, it remained a ghostly stalking apparition?

Hopefully this will not set the tone for the rest of my A to Z.

  1. Love these words. I imagined them being sung to the music of the band Killswitch Engage (apologies if you don’t like metal). Powerful stuff. I don’t think I have depression (does everyone sufferer start by uttering these words?), but I feel I swing closer each time I get hit with…whatever it is. You have my sympathies (and my axe!), keep fighting the good fight.

  2. The humor of your opening gives hope that this depression will give way to positive thoughts; otherwise you’ll be on a suicide watch before you get to Q. Seriously, the pairing of the photo and poem are powerful. (Look at me — already up to “P”!)

  3. Considering that apathetic is how I’ve been feeling for the past three years or so, this really hit close to home. You described the feelings perfectly.
