I normally don't type negative posts, but I'm feeling really cynical today.. these are some harsh truths I've learned since getting sick this year. Do other people feel the same way? Harsh truth #1 Most people when they ask "How are you?" are not interested in the answer, unless it is a simple "Fine thanks, how are you?" They cannot cope with anymore than this. They find it boring. Harsh truth #2 Most people do not care about anyone other than themselves. The number one reason for this is that they are too busy to care. They may give you a fleeting thought.. but that is all. Things to do, places to go and all that. Harsh truth #3 The people you think will be there for you in your time of need are not necessarily the people that will be there for you when that time comes. Some people are not capable of anything more than having good times. Harsh truth #4 Most doctors are useless when it comes to anything other than a cold or a broken bone. If I had a dollar for every time I was offered antidepressants I would be fabulously wealthy. Harsh truth #5 Life is completely and utterly unfair. Yes, I know, this is obvious and everyone knows it right? Well, even if you think you've pulled the wool over lifes' eyes, and gotten off pretty good... well life always has the final say, and things can change in the blink of an eye.
