D, great poem. Being married into a Chinese family I have to say you forgot the \'most important\' reason to go to the beach: FOOD. There is nothing better than the whole family doing a beach bbq pot luck!! Ah, and the boogie boarding, don\'t forget that. Loved your poem.

I love the way you weave lots of reasons for visiting beaches into this interesting read. Your final stanza sums up the whys in an encouraging way - for \"every time we leave we go on with our life with a little less negativity \" how postive and how true. Thank you for sharing this with us .

I think you\'ve covered a lot of ground in a succinct and positive way in your piece today. Always an uplifting visit where the ocean shows us natural forces and gives us such pleasure.

I would suggest to stop waiting & wasting your valuable time & get on with life.

If everything happens without our control then just let it whilst doing something for yourself in the meantime?

I’m okay
orchidee said:

Well, we do say \'I\'m Okay\' as a general reply to some folk. Maybe we don\'t know them that well? And would they listen if we had a long chat with them? I suppose we don\'t tell EVERYONE our personal matters or situations.
Some might even be expecting us to reply:\' Yep, all is Okay\', and be surprised if we said \'Well, actually, no I \'m not Okay!\'

A beautifully written poem that I can relate to! It reminded me of a great book entitled “Love You Forever” by Robert Munsch that I think you’d love to read! Thank you for sharing!

To look back on the past and have a good laugh. Surely a goal worth aspiring for. Nicely said.

Mental break downs
Goldfinch60 said:

Very good write, as Lawless said you need patience to survive, and by the way your words have been written you have both patience and a strong will to move forward - see you at the top of the hill.

Mental break downs

Patience is critical to surviving. The hard times are temporary.

A very fine piece expressing your struggle.

Depression pills update.

Also, thank you for persevering the opinions we have. I enjoyed your poem very much. It is well written and conveys your struggle.

My son, sister and deceased brother were diagnosed with major depression. My sister spent years researching the disease, she found that she fell into the dysthymia category and is doing fine without medication. I truly hope that you can do the same.

Hood had many good points. You really shouldn\'t trust anyone but yourself.

Depression pills update.
orchidee said:

Try cutting down pills gradually maybe? Hopefully you\'ll be okay for a \'longer while\' :) And just don\'t hear me sing - or you\'ll never recover. No -one will! heehee.

I just want to feel better already.
Resa71 said:

I’m not sure what ails you,
However I have a condition called fibromyalgia.
I was treated like a crazy person for many years.
Every day I’m in pain, or , and having problems with my stomach, bladder, balance.
I know it’s hard to carry on sometimes but, try to enjoy all the gifts in your life.
Every morning I count the good things I have in my life.
I think of the suffering others, many so much worse than my own.
I wish you well:)
Keep writing, stay connected.
This is a big part of what keeps me going.
