Glad you are feeling more positive Ragabash. It always amazes me coming to an American dominated forum like this how many people are having therapy/counselling of some kind.
Over here in England we don't have that so much.
Instead we have a soap opera on TV called Eastenders. The storylines are so depressive and all the characters so ****ing miserable that viewers feel cheered up about their own lives straight away.
If that doesn't work there is always alcohol.
