Waiting in Vain

Waiting months to over a year for medical services that help with healing and coping, yet cigarettes, coffee, candy, fast food, alcohol, tattoos, sex, and drugs are just around the corner in ample supply. I don’t value those things and they don’t solve my problems. I’m off to the library, park and community centre to walk, to journal, to call a friend. I’m doing the best I can.

The medical services offered, when available to you, will probably be worse than nothing. (Source: am a mental health consumer)

Sounds like you have some good tools in place, OP. Keep doing what you’re doing and it will lead to something good.

Just what I needed to hear today. Its one of the best comments ever in this Forum. Does your 'Waiting in Vain' come from the title of Bob Marley's song by the same name?

Yes, I agree with OP. Thanks NDP. I'll remember this next election, if I live that long.

Yes, the title is reference to the Bob Marley song. Come think of it, most of my posts use songs as titles ;)

How about The Spinners song - I'll Be Around (1973), A wonderful song and we used to joke back in the Hippy days: None of us would ever say: 'I'll be a square' :-)

I enjoy my morning coffee, great sex, cannabis and shrooms here and there as long as it’s with the right people. Other than that, I’m not a fan of cigarettes, alcohol or tattoos. No thanks.
