It has been two weeks since my last post so I thought it was about time I got my behind in gear and worked on something. For quiet some time there has only been one topic that kept coming to mind. Depression. Over and over again I kept feeling like I needed to do a post on depression. Not so much for others, but for myself. Well this morning I was reading Sherry’s blog and she had a wonderful post on depression. Again I felt the urge to write about this topic. It seems that so many people suffer from depression. I know I do. The problem is that most of the time I don’t want to admit it. I have completely weaned myself of any and all medication and my doctor is ok with that. So for the last two months I have medicated myself with food. The more the better. Well that didn’t help the waistline any so now I am not only fighting depression, I am also trying to put on all the weight I have gained. When it rains it pours.
My depression has gotten to the point of where it is starting to really affect my family. I have withdrawn myself from family time and it seems that all I want to do is stay in bed. Today I didn’t even want to get dressed (and still haven’t by the way).
I noticed at the bottom of Sherry’s blog that she posted her e-mail if anyone wanted to talk about what they were/are going through. I have decided to do the same. Sometimes people don’t want to comment about their personal lives online and would rather talk to someone in private. If so, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Who knows, maybe we can in some way be of help to each other.
