Depression has arrived again
I have suffered from depression since I was a young teenager. It seems to come and go. Most of the time it is manageable with medication.
However, I get tired of taking the meds and I fool myself into believing that it will not come back if I stop taking meds. So, obviously, I am currently unmedicated for depression.
I seem to usually be fine until something dramatic happens in the family. Then I get all tangled up in the drama. Daughter is going through divorce and is an alcholic and has other serious health issues. She is 37 and unloads all her drama on my shoulders. Then I go diving into the pits of depression.
I am embarrased to go back to my doctor and tell him the current meds are not working, so I usually just try to ride it out.
I have to force myself to get into the shower and get dressed and do something for the day. If I could, I would stay in my pj's all day and sit in front of this computer all day!!!!
That is my story.
