Back Into The Light

Dear Readers,
I am so sorry I haven’t been able to post or comment on your blogs.
I have have been in a very deep depression.
I was very worried for a few days. So was my hubby.
I didn’t leave the house for four days, and just non-stop crying.
I am on anti-depressants, and will be seeing my doctor tomorrow.
Depression is such an awful place to be. It’s so painful.
I have suffered with it for many years, and this last week was very difficult.

Yesterday, I felt I was finally in a better place.
I still am not great, but so much better.

Several things have happened since my last post.
I had my birthday.
I saw my family, whom I seldom see.
I went to a cool play at the Fringe Festival.
And of course, I went out to eat!

I am so thankful I am feeling more like myself.
I smile all the time, but smiles can hide pain.
If you have a loved one that suffers from depression, there are many good sites with great advice. Just google depression.

Love,
Wendy

On Day 350

  1. I am sending you as much light as I can.I too suffer from depression. And I admit I live in fear it will return. Which isn't great, but it's true.It is such a heavy and horrible thing. Please take care. There are many of us out here who love and appreciate your words. Even if we have never met.Anne

  2. Dear Wendy,I am so sorry you have been going through a difficult time. I hope you are on the mend now. It is such an awful illness. I suspect I suffer from some sort of anxiety but I have not been diagnosed. It's just horrible.I am glad you are feeling a little better. Thinking of you.A x

  3. I'm sorry to hear you've been feeling down, I've missed reading your posts. Depression can be so debilitating at time, my issue seems to be more anxiety-related, but I can relate to the feelings of wanting to isolate. Glad things are better, and be sure to check in with your doctor about those meds–take care! xx

  5. Wendy I'm so sorry you'be been suffering. I go through periods of depression too, ranging from mild to almost debilitating. Your experience sounds pretty severe 😦 I'm on antidepressants at the moment, I've realisted it's just something I need to do sometimes. And being able to spot the depression earlier really helps – I'm getting there with that! Take care, thinking about you, Waking Up xx

  6. I'm so glad you are feeling better. As you know I suffer from chronic depression as does one of my twins. We are both medicated but, of course, it's a constant vigil. I recently had one of my medications increased after I came out of an episode I didn't even know I was in! (Which tells me I have to listen to my husband more when he tells me I'm going into another episode…I tend to push him off.) This last time left me worried. What happens if the medication just keep increasing…where does it stop?And then I remembered…one day at a time. None of us are promised tomorrow so how about I just live in today and make it the best day possible.I'm so glad you're feeling better. You can always email me if you want to chat further about it. I'm around. Sherry

  8. Hi Wendy!So sad to hear what you've been going through lately. If it makes you feel any better, even though I only know you through your blog, I'm so proud of how far you've come the last 6 months! You've really shown to be someone who is determined, dedicated and strong. It's not easy to post on a blog almost daily whilst juggling the issues which you're dealing with. I really hope you start feeling yourself again soon. I often find it's the kindest of souls that hurt the most, meaning you feel more intensley which is beautiful but sometimes a bit of a curse. Really wishing you the best :)FrancisP.S. You're my favourite friend I've made through blogging 😉
