  You're depressing as hell. If this is so gawd-awful for you, why do you keep
  a it? Surely in all your 'searching' you've found something that will work
  for you and do what you want and that doesn't send you into such
  suicidal-sounding funks! If anyone or anything is "brain damaged" it's you!
  Seek professional help, an expensive psychiatrist is the first suggestion.
