LOF Glass Mirrors, 1959

Tomorrow will be 4 months since my near fatal fall on the ice. I still haven’t been released by my specialist and I’m still on limited duty at work. To say things have been rough would be an understatement. I had to close down my antique business because I could no longer physically keep up with it. I keep having depressive episodes and trying different meds but nothing seems to work. The rehab doctor said its normal for people to be depressed after an injury like mine, but already having a history of severe depression and suicide attempts just compounds it. I now wish I had died that day I fell on the ice four months ago.

This has to be the funniest sketch in TV history!
