done if my imagination had not been my companion? I must have grovelled

Whatever, go ahead and complain. I'm not stopping you, just saying that this may not be the best place to do it is all.

I simply have come to accept that this life leads nowhere (just to its' own end) and we're all, by ourselves, pretty insignificant.
So I, basically, try to help other people whenever I can.
I do get really anxious, almost panicky, when I *really* start to think about death.

Lesse... The entire world seems to be full of automatons that only care about what happens to their favorite celebrities instead of anything important. Our economy is descending further into a bottomless pit and the masses are oblivious. We have an industry based on entertainment rather than art, and so all creativity and integrity is stifled in the name of marketability.
Just what exactly is this supposed to accomplish?

I'm not - I'm a happy guy.
I'm a pessimist, you see - I believe things are inevitably going to get worse. Much worse - and not just the bit about Arnie becoming President. But because I'm a pessimist, I am happy. Because I believe that things now are better than they will become, and thusly I enjoy myself and am fairly happy.
Still - one of the most interesting things about depression is sunlight.
Seriously - I have a high light sensitivity, borderline photophobia.
And so I used to do the 'avoid light' thing - and at the same time was depressed. Then, after a bit of unavoidable sunlight, I felt better.
Simple lesson - a human is fairly advanced chemistry, but they are still chemistry. Melatonin is a deadening hormone - it produces fatigue and depression, and causes everything from general sleepiness to cranky tots to the dull feeling when you wake up tired and seem incapable of emotion. You are! That's part of why more people are born in winter than any other season - because its nine months after spring, where the extra sunlight dose kicks in and leaves people feeling better.
If you get the blues there are several solutions.
1) Sunlight - but dont get burned.
2) Find someone worse off than you and laugh heartily if you're that kind of person, or help them if you're the other kind.
3) Find someone better off than you and trip them with a prybar.
4) Find a lighthearted game that involves violence and thinking.
5) Win a lottery.
6) Buy me a car.

Any model in particular, fellow pessimistic one?
