THE GREAT WALL OF DEPRESSION

The world leans on us. When we sag, the whole world seems to droop.  ERIC HOFFER

Well, I was fine when I wrote yesterday’s journal. I had lots of plans for the day. Then at 10:30 a.m. I hit the "GREAT WALL OF DEPRESSION". I STARTED CRYING, ANXIETY, COULD HARDLY BREATHE AND ON IT GOES. POOR HUBBY JUST DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO MAKE OF THESE SESSIONS THAT COME OUT OF THE BLUE. I TOOK EXTRA PILLS AND CRAWLED BACK IN BED. THAT IS WHERE I STAYED ALL DAY. TODAY IS "IFFY" I FEEL IT SQUIRMING JUST BELOW THE SURFACE. SUPPOSE TO GO TO THE SUGAR WOODS TODAY WITH OUR FRIENDS AND HAVE PANCAKES AND SAUSAGE. THEN PLAY A LITTLE MEXICAN DOMINOS. I REALLY HAVE MY DOUBTS THAT THIS WILL HAPPEN. BUT I WILL PUSH MYSELF AS MUCH AS I CAN. HOWEVER, I DON’T WANT TO GET AN HOUR FROM HOME WITH LOADS PF PEOPLE AROUND AND HAVE A MELTDOWN!!!

Debbie, I so understand how you feel. I think sometimes we just need to go with it and allow ourselves some down time, quiet time. If you were sick with the stomach flu, you would cancel and stay in bed, right?

You have been so much better than you were a few years ago. I remember a time that you could not even function much at all day to day due to all the meds you were taking. Now you have your vitality back. We are bound to have these bouts of depression that kick us in the butt.

Take care of you and do what you have to, to be well. Hugs
