Thank you all for your comments from yesterday’s post. Today… I am still down, but not as much as yesterday. I will get a break from Brian on Saturday and I will survive until then. I’m hoping that it will be nice enough outside that I can go for a run and sweat some of my stress out. I talked to mom on the phone last night and it helped to have her tell me that it was all okay. Sometimes you just want the kid to go to sleep, and sometimes I just need to vent it all out.
I’m probably going to talk to the doc about upping the medication because I think it might help. The fact is I suffer from depression and Spring is my bad time. The good news is that I know my signs and symptoms and I’m not letting it run my life. I know I will be better, I will get more sleep, the house will get clean, the sun will come up and eventually Brian will be done with school. I’m glad that I have the blog as an outlet. It’s become an important place for me to vent my frustrations and let people into my world. I’ve become “friends” with people I’ve never met and it’s been a positive experience.
So, thank you all for telling me it’s okay and that you all feel this way occasionally as well. One of the things depression does is let you isolate yourself and my writing here is a way to combat it. Thanks to all of you, I don’t feel alone here at all.
