I’m glad that you got a chance to vent and wish you nothing but the best. You have a big decision to make when it comes to leaving the U.S. There is a pretty large Muslim community in Canada if you want to consider a liberal, non-Muslim country.

P.S. Hope that doggy got adopted.

It did. But there is no one for me, so I will always be the crippled dog that no one looks at, and lives in the Animal Shelter their entire life.

Note that my avatar is a crippled cat, who was the most joyful and loving creature I ever knew. She knew the world was hers, and she made it so. I hope you find joy soon, dear ZT!

Richard, I was fortunate to have been able to hang out and have grub with you last month. You’re a good guy and you shouldn’t let anyone make you think otherwise. If they don’t accept you, that’s their loss and you shouldn’t be feeling bad about it. You can’t help that you have Autism and if they aren’t patient enough to be that understanding, well fuck ‘em.

You have my number bro, so don’t feel hesitant to hit me up when you need some support . I’d rather have you than the vindictive ones I’ve known in the past.

Also, if you need a referral for a psychiatrist, I can refer you to one in Plano. She’s also Muslim as well so she can definitely help you if need be.

( ziggy Tardis )
I married late, in my mid-30s, and have two grown daughters. I’ve been a widower most of two decades. I’ve known depression. It peaked in the decade or so after puberty, which pretty much spanned the Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon administrations. Coincidence? I don’t know. Interesting times, in the sense of that ancient Chinese curse.

I have two suggestions that may help you to cope.
1) Easy, because melatonin is relevent to sleep cycle and depression: SunsetScreen
2) Harder, because it’s about the nature of man, revolutions, and conflicting ideas about governance:
The True Believer by Eric Hoffer

I read Hoffer’s book, among many others, trying to understand a phone call from a relative of a girl I was dating in high school, in 1964. The caller delivered, somewhat politely, a simple ultimatum:
1) Break it off, or 2) convert to his religion. Or else 3) I die, and my family dies.

I did not convert. Instead I read —very much more than I had previously been accustomed to. I embrace Anne Frank’s sentiment that all people are good at heart, and I hope you stay with LGF.

See also, The American Prophet Who Predicted Trump

The uncanny insights (and incredible life) of the American longshoreman and political prophet.
Tom Shachtman
04.16.16 4:01 AM ET

Whether or not Donald Trump knows it, he’s running his presidential campaign out of Eric Hoffer’s playbook.

That would be The True Believer, published 65 years ago this spring, a book about mass movements. Hoffer’s big insight was that the followers of Nazism and Communism were essentially the same sort of true believers, the most zealous acolytes of religious, nationalist, and other mass movements throughout history. In 1951, it was stunning to Americans to be told that ultra-right-wing Nazis and ultra-left-wing Communists—their recent enemies of World War II and current enemies in the Cold War—were, according to Hoffer, cut from the same cloth.

“All mass movements,” he explained, “irrespective of the doctrine they preach and the program they project, breed fanaticism, enthusiasm, fervent hope, hatred, and intolerance.”
