You may or may not have noticed that at some times I write more blog posts than other times, sometimes my posts aren’t as filled with actual words as others.
I suffer from depression.
I say suffer instead of just saying I “have” depression because I really do suffer from it. It affects every aspect of my life, every day.
I’m not feeling sorry for myself or wanting you to feel sorry for me. I just wanted to let you in on this because it’s such a huge part of my life.
I started a Blogspot blog a while back called, Depression-A Harmful Deviation but haven’t kept it up. I’m hoping to start writing more there again, it’s a good outlet.
My mission on Girlfriends Are Like Shoes is to keep things positive, light hearted, and joyful. My day to day life is the reason behind my passion for affirmations, journal writing and positive thinking.
I believe depression is a highly mis-understood issue and that is one of the major obstacles in living with it.
You either get it, or you don’t. (but hey, if you don’t…that’s a great thing for you!)
It’s been an ongoing battle; medications, different kinds of therapy, a lot of reading and trying to educate those in my life about what it really is.
Some days I just don’t have any words.
Many of my days are spent lost online reading about new things but a favorite past time is making digital goodies and custom blog design. I also love D.I.Y. projects & crafts.
This site has been quite a friend to me by allowing me to get lost in my own world and I cherish it greatly, I cherish you greatly. If you are reading this then you are my motivation and I thank you for that.
There are two things that seem to be a constant in my days; you (this blog) and my kitty, Peaches.
