Poetry, Stories, and Humor by Mark Tulin
More sadness than horror in your story, Mark. I couldn’t help thinking that we humans are all fast becoming empty shells like Nick in a world where the vast majority of our species are disposable.
A good social and political observation, Rosaliene. Many of us feel disposable and invisible.
I fear that you may be right, Rosaliene.
This story was painful to read, truly horrific.
I’m getting the same feeling watching my football team right now.
Nothing to compare to a football game. I agree with Liz. It was just too painful a story. I imagine that even at that time of the year too many of those stories could be told.
Thanks for your opinion, Theresa.
Your not aware of my football suffering, Theresa. See me watch a game and you’ll understand my misery.
Many Psychiatrists have no idea what it is like to be depressed. Most of them are scornful instead of being empathetic. However, patients have to go to them. There is no alternative. A well-written story. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Nightlake. Points well taken. If mental health professionals were required to take ECT in med school, they would have a different perspective, I’m sure. ECT is a last resort in most cases and many people have improved as a result. ( Just to keep a balanced perspective). Thanks again for your comment.
