Hang in there, it gets better, you are amongst your own kind here :-)
"The ocean has always been a salve to my soul...the best thing for a cut or abrasion was to go swimming in salt water
. Later down the road of life, I made the discovery that salt water
was also good for the mental abrasions one inevitably acquires on land."
- Jimmy Buffett
The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
There is nothing like lying flat on your back on the deck
, alone except for the helmsman aft at the wheel
, silence except for the lapping of the sea against the side of the ship. At that time you can be equal to Ulysses and brother to him.
- Errol Flynn
Cheers and good luck
