As an experiment, over the last several months I tried to be cheerful, friendly, and helpful.
The act appear to have worked on many others.
However, I’m just as lonely, depressed and suicidal as ever.
I’ll just keep hiding under the false pretenses of a fairytale marriage. That act still impresses people. In fact, the more I tell it the less people see me!
No deus ex machina, although some have tried their darnedest to help.
