With 2015 starting, I intend to be more active on FS, as I have experienced before how therapeutic this can be.
I have written very little over the past few years. This is due to all the horror and inhumanity we have been seeing and living in, since our revolution of Jan. 2011 in Egypt. This escalated dramatically when we chose our new beloved President CC. As fighting terrorism (Muslim Brothers) is ongoing, so is loosing many young men almost every day.
I am suffering through those losses and my depression is getting worse as I go through this agony of mothers loosing young men, just as I did 19 years ago. Post Traumatic Syndrome is worsening my chronic depression.
I hope for the best with my writing and for my country. AND OF COURSE FOR YOU ALL!😄

mrsmajor: I most certainly can understand what you have said..what you are living through has been depressing for all that love humanity...
The right time will come when you will write again...and we will be waiting...I have found the putting down of my words, as a way of healing myself...depression can be all consuming...I send you a big hug, and some love...

"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
