Ok, so I bang on about sadness a lot in this little corner of cyberspace. Hardly anyone reads it, and it helps me deal. A lot of people are sad in this world, at least some of the time. And we can feel helpless or alone or lost in that deep deep sea of life. I’m not looking for medication, just somewhere to let my thoughts run free and hopefully connect with other people having the same experience. But even this tiny forum has not escaped the long reach of pharma companies, it seems. Any time I mention the words sad or sadness, I get an inbox full of Xanax, Zoloft and Prozac-type spam. Well, to whoever sends this stuff: you are sick, sick puppies, preying on anyone who a computer word search programme tells you might be vulnerable. Go flog your wares somewhere else.
