Things have been crazy. I know I’ve been a lazy blogger. Things just seem to get in the way of the path to my laptop.
I’m dealing with #depression. Or it’s grieving. I’m not sure. My best friend says it’s #grief. I have no idea how to tell the difference, or if it’s both. I don’t see my therapist for a couple of weeks, but you can bet that this topic will come up.
It feels like depression because I have no energy. I want to sleep. I want to escape into my books or the internet. It’s hard for me to get up and fix meals; it’s hard for me to get up and take a shower and get dressed.
So, here I am.
It’s “Mental Health Awareness Month” so I need to post some of the things made available by some of the Facebook and websites that I follow. People need to be made aware that because I have bipolar disorder and depression, that doesn’t mean I’m weak or stupid. People need to know that these are diseases, just like diabetes or cancer.
Maybe doing something positive like using the Awareness Month stuff, I’ll feel better.
It’s worth a try.
