Now I am struggling with depression
Depression is the bane of dedicated writers and regular folks too. Can’t promise much production as I should be in intensive therapy for the next few weeks. I am keeping a diary and journal of my struggle and may hope to publish it God willing to help others who have to overcome childhood abuse and neglect. I am delayed onset depression. I can tell you that exercise and food and social withdrawal kept me going. When younger I was a sex addict. But I never used alcohol, street drugs, prescription drugs and never attempted suicide. So therefore I am eligible for outpatient treatment.
Pray for me and I’ll pray for you. This is the worst disease ever. People told me I was crazy, they were right. People told me to lose weight, now I’ve lost 30 pounds in about two months. Not having an appetite seems really really strange to me. I miss being outside. I did a lot of crying and praying. Now I am into relaxation, meds, accupuncture and SLOWING MYSELF WAY DOWN.
I will write when I can. I did not even watch the debates nor care to. You know that’s not like me. I am taking no pleasure in my life or life in general. Just my season to suffer. Yesterday was my birthday too.
