My journey in the depths of Depression is still on going. Another day that lacked joy, happiness or any positive emotion. Almost as if I was riding along a flat line, for the most part. Just here. Occasionally I find myself dip deeper into the despair and darkness. I have still forced myself to get out of bed today and to do some basic things that needed attending. Though, those things took a great deal of time to accomplish. I also forced myself to crochet to occupy my mind, but found that I was still having trouble focusing, which made me have to recount stitches until I just put it up and was done with it. Sigh…..
Now, I am waiting for bed time to come so I can crawl back under the covers and sleep. Where, in my dreams, I find something other than depression. I keep hoping each day will be the day I wake up and I no longer feel this way. At 8pm, I realized I had not ate the entire day, so I ate an apple, a piece of cheese and some frozen veggies from the freezer. I will force myself to watch the shows my sons girlfriend wants to see and then I will go climb in my bed. Even typing this, I have had to correct so many of my words, that it seems like a great chore to just write this post. With that I bid you all goodnight…..
