Things were at a low for me about two years ago. I was so depressed that I couldn’t enjoy much of anything, despite having a wonderful husband and son, and I would stay away night after night, freaking out about everything under the sun (from a sound in the house to the possibility of a tornado), having anxiety attacks. . .
I started Blogging for Therapy sometime around then since I hate talking about my issues out loud to anyone I’m close to, let alone a stranger. I figured at a minimum, it would help to get some things off my chest, and it has been. Plus, I’ve connected with some other awesome bloggers that experience similar issues, and while it obviously sucks, it helps to know that I’m not alone.
The meds have worked for the most part, with the exception of a few days here and there plus the past week, which has been really rough. “Those thoughts” have been happening again, so it’s time to figure something out again, and I will be contributing to the Blog for Mental Health project with some of my posts in the meantime.
