Where I've been...

Well.

Hi, how are you? Me? I'm struggling still. It took me about a month and a near nervous breakdown to realized that I needed to take the same tact with my own depression issues, that I have with my son's...that medication isn't a sign of weakness, it is simply caring for myself. It was a hard paradigm shift for me, which makes me that much happier that I could make the decision for him at such a young age, rather than leaving it to him to figure out in a hard way like I have. One day my best friend, who also happens to be my sister said "Remember when you told me how you wouldn't hesitate to give him the medication he needed if he was diabetic, so why should this condition be any different? So, tell me why YOU are different?" And you know she's right.

If you haven't guessed, this is my excuse for being lame and not writing. I've had a hard time forcing myself to do much more than is required but I'm taking quite a few nutritional supplements and have a doctor's appointment scheduled. The supplements seem to be helping quite a bit, as long as I remember to take them. I tank out when I forget. But I've had some interesting experiences, so I'm going to spend some time today telling you about them. Sorry for the hit and miss posting. Maybe one day soon I'll get myself on a nice schedule. :)

I like the thought of just posting when you feel like it. No obligation. (But I don't want to join that whole movement, which says more about my aversion to Group Things than anything else.) Anyway, we're here and glad to see you when you want to be seen.

I've been struggling along without medication for a while but I'm sort of doubting my ability to keep going on that track since, hello, I've stopped sleeping. That can't be good, right?

Anyway, I'm glad to read whatever you've written. You're worth waiting for.

Your sister has great advice and don't worry, your posts are always worth the wait.

Medication.

Obligation.

Two themes I've been pondering as well.

I love when you find time, inspiration, motivation to post. I hope everything is straightening itself out in your world.

I'm still thinking about you. Hope everything is going better and better.

Yes, I did.
