Introduction

I’m fairly new to this. I had one of these years ago like over 14 years ago. Writing helped me a lot in the past so, I decided to give it a try again. I think dealing with depression is difficult for everyone. I have good days and bad days. The non stop roller coaster of emotions can be overwhelming. It feels good to know that I’m not alone in this and I’m more normal then I used to believe. I love a lot about my life, but sometimes it’s easy to get lost in the sauce along the way. I’m a very caring and open person and I really enjoy helping others through tough times. Everyone can use a listening ear in hard times.

Today for me was a day of less anxiety and it was actually more peaceful then others. Its hard to juggle married life, work, and 4 children. Though my children are now of ages to where they can care for themselves, it still can become overwhelming at times. The weekend was pretty decent compared what it has been over the past 8 months. I think I’m finally beginning to heal from my traumatic year last year. And I’m more hopeful then I was previously. Still struggle here and there but honestly who doesn’t.

I hope I can be of some type of help to someone out there. I’ve dealt with depression for quiet a while. Not going to fully put myself out there but I’m an 80’s baby so I’m getting up there in age. 🙂 I hope all had a great weekend or at least one to where you were at least okay.

@kartoffeltorte Hey, I’m Shannon. Yeah depression is a hard one to deal with. I used to be on medication but I got sick of being switched all the time. If you can find one that works and stays working then thats great. with my experience though I just have therapy with my therapist and trying to figure it out with out medications. If I didn’t have such a difficult time or bad experience then maybe I’d be for it again. My weekend was good. Last night wasn’t such a good night but hey you wins some and lose some. I pick myself up and keep moving. but Friday and Saturday were outstanding 🙂 I am glad your weekend went well. That is always good to hear. I really hope the new med helps you. I’m all for people feeling better and more themselves. Have a great one!

I’ve never had a depressed day in my life – wonder what that feels like . . . .when I get a tinge of feeling down, I get raving mad and that punches me right out of that depression alley!   Stopped to say welcome to the OD . . .its been here since 1998!
