Suckage: A Song (With Apologies To Jerry Garcia)

And now, for something a little different (if not particularly chirpy), here’s a little ditty I composed while sitting at the computer listening to classic rock music.

To the tune Truckin’ by The Grateful Dead:

Suckage

man my life’s a mess

Suckage

I’m totally stressed

Suckage

where the hell do I belong?

But I’m gonna keep hangin’ on…..

Livin’ like I have ain’t always been easy

Sometimes I don’t know if I’m coming or if I’ve gone

In debt up to my ass, creditors just keep on callin’

Don’t they know that I’ll never answer the phone?

Suckage

man my life’s a mess

Suckage

I’m totally stressed

Suckage

where the hell do I belong?

But I’m gonna keep hangin’ on…..

Busted flat, I dunno where I’m goin’

All I know is I have to figure it out soon

I’d like to have more time before I leave here

but I’ll probably still be singin’ the same old tune

Suckage

man my life’s a mess

Suckage

I’m totally stressed

Suckage

where the hell do I belong?

But I’m gonna keep hangin’ on…..

I'm a retired registered nurse and writer who also happens to be street-rat crazy, if the DSM-IV.....oops, 5---is to be believed. I was diagnosed with bipolar I disorder at the age of 55, and am still sorting through the ashes of the flaming garbage pile that my life had become. Here, I'll share the lumps and bumps of a late-life journey toward sanity.... along with some rants, gripes, sour grapes and good old-fashioned whining from time to time. It's not easy being bipolar in a unipolar world; let's figure it out together.

  1. have you tried talking to the city about getting some help w/ rent? 😦 that reworking of the lyrics unfortunately is all too good. Been there done that. At 40 moved in with my dad with whom I was hardly on speaking terms. I had no other choice. It ended up being a very good thing as God used it to repair my relationship with him. I don’t know but what God has something good to happen out of all this. We don’t know though if the fat lady has sung yet – my apologies, not saying you’re fat … lol… Love and hugs and prayers.
