Well, I did say "used to". I've undergone a tremendous metamorphosis in the past fifteen years or so, and continue to evolve. I wouldn't be here on this forum if I were still depressed and resentful of having to be on this planet. I've had a huge amount of pain and disinformation and other ills to overcome, and I'm still working my way through it, every day, in small and large ways.
