There are many of us who fall into that deep, dark and lonely place. I'm in
the process of climbing back up the wall (and dodging those falling rocks)

I think they get as tired of trying to haul us up out of the pit as we get
falling back into it.

Sometimes we give support, sometimes we need support. Many times when
we need the support the most we are unable to ask for it... that's just one

Been there done that, got the Tee shirt and membership card. All of us need 
support. Like so many other human pursuits, helping others is support for 
ourselves, but of course Reverand, ya Already know that.
