Hello my Sparkies¡K

Some of my friends on here may have wondered where I have disappeared off too. Its not that I don¡¦t enjoy being around for you guys, but I needed some time to myself. To figure out what has been going on with my head.

For a few months I have been dealing with mental depression disorder. I thought I could handle it all on my own. And God knows I have tried, but I couldn¡¦t handle it. I don¡¦t know why it happened to me because normally I am a happy go lucky kind of person, but this summer was just rough and dark. Mentally. I didn¡¦t work out, I didn¡¦t eat right, I didn¡¦t do much at all. I went camping, but pretty much kept with myself. My mom and I had a talk shortly after we arrived. She noticed I was a bit off. I knew I was in the dark, but I didn¡¦t think I was that in the dark.

Well my husband and my momma told me that it was time I figure out what was going on in my head. I sought some help and counseling. I am doing better. I am not so much in the dark. Still feeling a little gray from time to time, but things are looking up. I am starting to feel like myself again. However I hope that this was just a phase and that I will come out of it and never have to deal with this again.
However I am just happy that I am feeling happier again. ļ

    Glad to hear from you and that you're doing better. I know I struggle with the same thing you do so you're not alone. The main thing is you're dealing. If you need something don't hesitate to reach out!

    I'm glad you sought out some help for your condition. Sometimes, you simply cannot go it alone. Don't be afraid of medication either. I had a lot of trouble last year and went on medication for depression/anxiety. After being on the medication for a while, I went through a cognitive behavioural therapy program and my therapist told me that often medication is needed to get you to a place where you can learn from and really benefit from the therapy programs. The program was immeasurably helpful to me and I was able to come off of the medication without incident.

    I hope you keep on feeling better! Feel free to send me a sparkmail if you want to talk more about this.

    Keep on hanging in there - this is treatable and beatable!

    I( wouldn't worry too much about it. If you were able to get help and come out of it that quickly, you should be okay. Congratulations on your near victory over depression. Glenn
