Update on my Depression

Still here, feeling better during the days but still having some trouble staying asleep at night...

I notice that I have more energy to do things during the day and my moods are getting slowly better and this after only one week back on the medicine. I find that I am not procrastinating about doing things as much.

While out on my walk in the park today I found myself thinking that I felt happy for the first time in a long time! I noticed that the squirrels were playing in the trees and the grass is starting to green up again not only am I starting to come back to feeling alive but nature is also!

Feeling isolated lately but today I asked my neighbor for help and received it. We are down to one car right now so my husband has mine so he can get to his job. I am stuck at home until we can get the other car fixed:( Anyway, my neighbor took to me to the grocery store and we had a great girl chat depression is much more common than you think or at least I think its sad how so many of us suffer from it and isolate ourselves because we "feel" different from every one else.

Thats my update for now nothing very exciting but ordinary is good too!


  1. Glad thing are improving, Susan - and good on ya for reaching out to your neighbor! That chat probably helped her as much as it did you.

  2. I'm with Shelly (and you) and glad things are improving. I tend to isolate also so I have to be careful and often force myself to do things, to get out there. It's funny how many of us are depressed, not funny haha, funny odd.
    Damn, must be sumthin in the water!
    Keep up the good work! We are rooting for you even if we are depressed rooters.

  3. It is hard to reach out sometimes so I am glad that you were able to do so. Hoping things continue to improve for you.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog Susan.

    A former friend of mine has depressions so I've learned a little about it. I'm glad to hear you're feeling a bit better now.

  5. I totally relate. I'm on anti depressants for the second time, at least this time i didn't wait as long.
    Good for you on reaching out and getting help from the neighbor.

  6. I am glad that you are seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. Avoiding the isolation is very smart on your part. Take care.

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I have family who suffers from depression, so my heart goes out to you. I'm glad you're seeing some happy days coming back and were reaching out to your neighbor.

    Have a great Sunday!

  8. I think spring always help you feel more alive - the birds are chirping, you start seeing more green and everything coming back to life.

    Hang in there!
