I, it seems to me that this “I” of mine still exists. I wake up here in my room, in my bed. My eyes do not want to open. When I open them, I find myself in this lousy world again. I do not want that. 

Today I have slept for first time in three days. For how long? I don’t know. I didn't fall asleep right away. I used to go straight to sleep as soon as I felt the bed. I'd lay down, close my eyes, and that was it, nothing, no problems, no people, and this internal feeling which is so heavy and vicious wasn’t with me either. Then it started getting more and more difficult for me to fall asleep. I lost the ability to 'hide' in the only place that made me feel good, namely, sleep. I would like to sleep through my entire life and only wake up when it is over, but I cannot do that. 

My head does not hurt as much as it did before. It was simply falling apart not long ago. I am starting to get used to this constant feeling. This drill in my head won’t allow me to move, it keeps me focused solely on it by means of this incredible pain. “Me, me, me, me, me”- there is nothing else at this moment besides me and this pain. Thoughts wonder in my head, running into each other in this state of being partly asleep and partly delirious and I have no control over them. All that is left for me to do is to simple observe. 


When things get really bad I get inclined to listen to heavy metal music. Bam-bam-bam! Louder and even more louder! Hard rock! Doom! Metallica! And all this is needed only to blank out my thoughts. This music makes me feel a little better. My hearing gets blunted and I stop hearing you. So, let the passers-by turn their heads over hearing loud sounds of Led Zeppelin in my headphones. I cannot make it any other way; those headphones and the music become the only means to survive, the shell that I have to put on in order to get out into the world. 

I am lying down. Time stretches terribly long. Tic-toc tic-toc the clock counts. And it seems to me that even the hand of the watch slows down its movements. I hear every strike in a stretched way. Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiic-tooooooooooc. It jives with the little hammer deep inside my head. Unbearable….. 

Looks like I am hungry. Sometimes I eat nothing for days; I simply forget to. I understand it is time to eat something when I feel sharp hunger cramps in my stomach. My body is asking for food, so I have to go eat something. I have to do something again. I have to perform mechanical movements like taking the food out, putting it in my mouth, chewing it, feeding my body. I open my eyes and see the ceiling, the same, old ceiling in my apartment. I go to the kitchen with an effort, it is dirty, I feel garbage under my feet, but I do not care about that now.

Daylight makes my eyes hurt. I close curtains ahead of time. I stop for a second and take a look outside. How many people are out there, and all of them hurrying somewhere, their faces look concerned. A thousand of them pass here daily. And I keep having the feeling that I have seen this already. They keep running one after another, time and time again, crossing the street, speaking on their cell phones, quarrelling with drivers, and eating at cheap cafes. They look like robots, their mouths open and move, their arms and legs traverse. I cannot tolerate seeing movement that is so empty and senseless. Quick! I need to close the window and go back to my private world! 

They make me so tired! They scream and bother me; they demand that I participate in their life. Every one of them thinks he is so clever and wants to teach me the right way to live. And I look at them and see one and the same thing, copies, copies, copies. They are just smooth, vulgar, blunt puppets. And you want me to look you in the eyes? You want me to talk to you? But why would I do that? What would I talk to you about? 

Sometimes I lose the feeling of reality. When I wake up at night or during the day, I start mixing up dates and places, I do not remember what happened yesterday, and I do not know what will happen today. I go to work and push computer keys in the same detached manner that I consume food. An endless “Groundhog Day”. So, what is reality? Maybe there, in my dark dreams, things are more real than here? 


I tried doing something with that. There were times when I tried to be “like everybody else”. Having a career, buying expensive things, having a family. Nothing ever pleased me. 

There was a period when I was completely submerged in computer games. I spent days and nights there, in my imaginary worlds. I was entranced by the opportunities they had. Things that I was able to do there that were impossible to accomplish in this world. There I did not have to communicate with all those people; there were elves, orcs, dragons, and a special way of life. In this toy world, among the castles and unicorns I could forget about reality for some time. I spent long nights online playing these virtual games. But this also exhausted itself. Finally, I reached the limit of their resources. 

I tried going to psychologists. Those “intelligent, handsome, and successful” people made no impression on me. All their admonitions about how beautiful life is, how much every moment of it should be valued... these phrases were empty to me. Where is this beautiful life? And how can it please anyone? It only makes me suffer. I do not want it. Psychological support groups brought no results either. I was not touched by human tears. Their eyes, their faces, they were all nothing. Silly unfortunate beings, what do I care about them? 

I have already gone to church. Crosses, icons, candles, prayers, it is all empty. Just beautiful pictures. 

Looking for a way to fill my internal emptiness, I started partying, drinking a lot, smoking, etc. But this did not make me feel better either. All hopes left me. The feeling of desperation and emptiness got to me more and more. 

One day a clear precise question appeared inside of me. Why? What is the meaning of my life? What is the meaning of this entire life struggle? I feel it sharply; it gives me a pulling sensation in my chest. Sometimes it makes me go even deeper internally and practically stop breathing, and other times it pushes me to yet another party with this burning wave of senselessness. It is only there that I am able to forget it all and have a little rest. 

I am trying to understand the way others feel. I go outside, I look at people, and I realize that not a single one of them has the questions that I have. I feel very lonely. You do not ask the questions that I ask, and I do not ask the questions you ask. I go into the crowd without feeling like one of them. 

I can only feel a little better at certain moments. In the darkness of the night I raise my eyes to the sky and I feel this light shining out from the dark. Maybe there is hope that all this wasn’t created for nothing? That this entire world so sickening and vulgar still has a meaning? And so do I. My heart aches from all this unclear agony and pain. And yet, there is light somewhere here.

Depression is the biggest problem of our time. More people can't find the meaning of their life and are feeling, that they are not happy or can't feel the life-their taste, colour and everything, what people can feel in their life every day. The people, who are in a relationship, couldn't ever know, what is happening in the soul of human with depression. And, very often, we don't know how we can help to them.
Just few days ago, a famous actor and comedian had died-Robin Williams. He was suffering from depression.
Izzard (friend of Robin) became friends with Williams while working on the film The Secret Agent in 1996. Izzard did not want to go into the causes of Williams' suicide: "I don’t want to get into that. Depression is clinical and some people have it and some people don’t. It’s a disease. He was brilliant and it would have been wonderful if he could have gone on.” This is very sad news.
System-Vector Psychology help us to understand, who can have depression, why it comes in and what needs to be done, that it will get. And people can live without depression and feel happy in life.

What defensive metrics have the wholesale baseball jersers most impact philadelphia phillies jersers on a team's Win-Loss record?

Basic defensive metrics like errors, assists and putouts are readily available metrics, pittsburgh pirates jersers but to tell how the standings are affected, a run value needs to be placed on the play that the player did or not make. To get this data an in-house metric would need to be created. The extent of this type of data available is limited, atlanta braves jersers but with enough time, it can be created. The data needs to be collected on a group of teams (division to entire league) to be able to compare results. If the data was just collected for the team, it can show that they made 10 great diving catches to stop some hits, but how does that compare to other teams.

To get the best information for this in-house defensive metric, three main pieces of information chicago white sox jersers are needed.
The first data needed is how hard and in what direction the ball was hit. Hit F/X data, supplied to blue avisail garcia authentic jersers all teams, gives the direction and speed that each ball was hit. If this data is not available to the team, BIS and STATS provide data on where each ball was hit on the field in various zones.

The next set of data is not currently available is the location of the defenders. This data could be obtained by watching every play of every game (or some subset of teams). Also, you could take the hitter tendencies (pull hitter, hits to all fields, etc) and find the average position of the fielder. Getting the position of each player may be rather difficult and time consuming. If the resources are st. louis cardinals jersers available I would collect all the data on each ball in play. If not, I would collect a sample of data and see if it matters significantly where the defender is positioned. If we chicago white sox jersers know that the amount of variation depending of defensive positioning to be 4 plays per 100 hit in the player's direction, los angeles angels of anaheim jersers los angeles angels of anaheim jersers this level of variation can be added in later.

Finally data would need to be obtained if the player made the catch, threw it to for an out or caused and error. This data is readily available from STATS or BIS or could be obtained easily from the which as all the data in easy to get .xml format.

Once the data has cincinnati reds jersers been collected, a run expectancy chart needs tampa bay rays jersers to be generated for the league. It shows the average number of runs generated given the runners on base and the number of outs in an inning. Say a batter hits the ball and gets to first base on a ball barely missed by the shortstop. The average number of runs with a runner on first with no outs could be 1.1 runs (example). Now if the fielder got to the ball and threw out the hitter, it would be 1 outs with no one on base. The average number of runs scored in this situation would could be 0.4 runs. So by making or not making the play, the average number of runs expected to be scored changes by 0.7. This is the run value for the play.

The data between different players can then be compared to see which players made the most plays given the situation to determines the average percentage of times any given player makes a play. Once this percentage is known, then runs lost or saved can begin to be assigned to players. For example, 50% of the time a shortstop gets the runner out at 1st for a ball hit 4 steps to his left. A shortstop, only makes 3 out of 10 of these plays, cost the team on average 1.4 runs.

Finally, the number of runs saved or lost per team would be known and these values would be summed. Over the past few years, 10 runs prevent or scored is needed to get an additional win. Taking the difference in runs prevent above or below average and dividing it by 10 will give the number of wins or losses that a teams defense generates.
