Blue, blue, blue...

I am SO blue that I could be a SMURF and that is pretty darned BLUE! I haven't had the blues this bad in a long time. I wish that I could just wiggle my nose and make dem ol' blues go away. Instead, I feel like I have been dunked in a bucket of midnight velvet blue paint and left to dry...the paint is itchy too.

Now I am one of those damned optimistic human beings who nauseate normal humans with my Pollyanna attitude and little glad girl self so for me to admit to being blue is well, quite astounding.  Now I do suffer from depression, a biological illness but that is different than having the blues. Shoot anti-depressants can help with depression (they don't do the whole job, they just help) but the blues ain't got no cure or help for them. You just gotta let 'em work through your system and try to keep them from dragging you TOO far down.

At this point I am still treading water without a life vest, who knows what tomorrow will bring, maybe I will be better or maybe I will need a buoy to cling to, in either case I will beat these blues. They will crumble up and fall away. I will find me some good Big Mama Thornton and Leadbelly to listen to and their voices will help me to be my blues away because sometimes to get rid of da' blues you gotta' immerse yourself in them. It may sound crazy but it is true.

I will find some good Delta Blues to kick back to and before I know it I will be wondering just why I was so blue. (Not really, I will always know why I have these blues even after they are long gone but it is fun to pretend that I won't know a damn thing about what caused them.) As soon as these blues are gone I will get my battle shields up and protect myself from ever getting these blues so bad again. Oh sure, they will haunt me again some day but I promise I won't be Smurfette then, just a little translucent turquoise while the blues are passing through.

Here's to kickin' da' blues to da' curb!

Ciao!

I'm sorry Ardee-Ann. I get the blues too. And you're right sometimes the best way to get rid of them is music.

((hugs))

Re: :(
Thanks Heather, I really appreciate your note. I listened to the blues, soul, jazz and rock last night. It helped a lot!

Hugs,
