#51 Crime – ‘Depression is a Criminal’

I tried to report a crime today, I went down to the police station and explained that some things of mine had been taken. It was not the crime of the century, and no one was badly hurt. So given the police cuts recently I was surprised at how empathetic they were to my plight. Energy, motivation, determination, personality, creativity and my optimism had all been taken. I didn’t even notice it happening, it must have happened at some point over the last few nights.

Whilst the police were understanding, there wasn’t much they could do. Primarily because it is a factious story, but also because there were no signs of a break in. No bruises and no broken bones, no sign of damage at all. To add to that there were not even any traces of foreign DNA either.

So in summary, there are no leads. I have my own list of suspects, and depression is at the top of the list. Unfortunately depression is an elusive character, and even if the police could find them, they have no evidence of any wrong doing. I thought my lack of personality must count for something – they told me I appeared to be my normal self*.

It is another bad day.

There is a police force there for when physical things are taken but when they’re in your mind, it is no longer a concern for society. Or it only becomes important to society if you pay someone enough to care. Either that or you wait 6 months for an appointment – always the sign of great care.

“Help! Someone has stolen my car!”.

“No problem sir, we totally understand, and we’ve set you up an appointment with an assessment liaison officer for 6 months time. They will then decide whether to get the actual police on the case  – but don’t you doubt us, we will do whatever it takes to catch them”.

Mindfump.

*The cheek.

            Writing a post about how depressed I am today, I didn’t think comments would be flooded with debates about the colour of my logo haha but if it was some sly distraction to cheer me up – I think it is working.

        haha, I’ll have you know I got an A* in Art for GCSE. And that is basically my only credential – for anything. Ever. Not sure many people still pop out their GCSE certificates at dinner parties, but I do.

            I’m not quite convinced it is a state of mind, or that it can be entirely controlled. There is definitely a biological element. Silence is a killer though.

      It certainly sounds fanciful but, not for me. I often hear people say their illnesses are part of who they are, and they wouldn’t change anything. That is not the case for me, I’d give it all up in a heartbeat. Not having depression would also make me into a person I would be.

          haha, you don’t like pink do you? I’m sensing this anti pink vibe. As far as percentages go I’d say my website is 80% white. Although on a serious note, I wanted him to be cheery and nice. I write stuff that isn’t super intense and I try and say things in a light hearted way – I think that covers those angles.

      You know, pink actually used to be a masculine colour and blue used to be a feminine colour. They were switched around 100 years ago. Purely a learned behaviour, assuming pink is for girls and blue for boys etc. I’m taking pink back.

            Btw…from Wikipedia => in the 1920s, some groups had been describing pink as a masculine color. Ops! => “some groups” only, not EVERYBODY or the world. I can also create a group in 2017 and say – the red is a masculine color. / Just saying. Not much to discuss I know. I like pink anyway..

        I feel I must contribute to this insane conversation by adding that I dress my female dog in a blue coat. Not pink, blue. This tends to confuse people who expect to see boy bits. I like to explain that ‘she’ is a dog. Dogs don’t do gender specific colours as they see it as a form of oppression and subterfuge.

    You know I never liked Batman, but I think I now understand why he needed not just a sidekick but also a butler. The sidekick keeps fighting those dirty no good rotten thieves while the butler helps put the super hero back together.
    You need a butler buddy. Captain Mindfump needs a butler. Position now hiring!

        You know some people might say I’ve done no work so far this evening. but I would argue my comments have had more value than moving clothes from a to b…
        I am literally the worst employee though.
