    Were you extremely saddened or in despair once you realized you'd been duped???

    i was estatic. even though i always had doubts, i always had the what if they are right syndrome. after i figured they were full of it, my mind was at peace.

    Yes, minimus.

    Horribly sad and depressed.

    In despair.



    It's still hard sometimes.

    That's like asking if your shorts stink after you shat in them. ;-)

    It was hard to believe there was no pair o' dice coming. That kinda sucked for a while. Im over it now.

    I never got depressed. As the years went by, I started figuring out it was all bull. But I never was in despair over it.

    Minimus, I only hope everyone decides not to post here that was depresed when this was discovered. It has been two years for me, and unfortunately I only found this place a few months ago. I tried booze, therepy, and meds-and still use the meds. My whole little world is busted wide open, and unfortunatly virtually ALL of my family/friends are now like aliens to me,or I to them. It is like the Twilight Zone.

    If not for the isolation thing, and feeling defrauded my whole life, I could probably be happy about the new freedom from fear.

    nothing is the same....oompa

    Really, minimus?

    I'm being sincere.

    I've always been a joker, and always had a good time and pushed the envelope.

    But deep down inside, in spite of doubts, i really hoped it was true.

    Today I'm feeling pretty down.

    OOMPA, it sounds like professional therapy could help.
