I am an animator and am working on a feature - a funny film about depression "Rocks In My Pockets".
The subject of depression is very important to me, personally. I was diagnosed as manic depressive at 22. The last time I took pills for my mental affliction was six months after release from the mental hospital. I do not take pills anymore - I can't afford them, and they dull my mind. The fact that I live and am able to work is a result, partly, of years of hard inner work - I am determined to be happy - and partly because of my education - I have a BA in Philosophy and am trained to think, analyze and persuade. The person I have to persuade the most is myself.
Every day I wake up and have to find a new meaning to my life. Luckily, I have been able to find it. My three cousins were not as lucky, and they were more successful at their suicide attempts than me.  I started to ask questions and unravel old family secrets. This is what "Rocks In My Pockets", my first feature film, is about. I call it a funny film about depression, but in fact it is sometimes serious, sometimes funny, but overall deeply personal.
I am sorry but we cannot discuss suicide on this forum. .  Good luck...

Chartreux, with my film I am just asking questions. It is a wonder of life to be alive and ask questions. But maybe you wanted to know what am doing on this forum posting info about my film? I just wanted you to know that such project is coming into existence. Maybe one day you'd like to see it. Hopefully.
I like your signature.
I'd like to have 'command' Z on my life too. Undo all those badly burnt cookies.
