This is not the easiest thing I've blogged about, but I feel drawn to address it. So...here goes! :)
It seems like "being depressed" or "suffering from depression" is just an over-used excuse these days. At least that's kind of the way I used to view it. When I was diagnosed with it, I didn't really "believe" in it. I thought it was just a nice way to say I was a downer or just plain moody at times. Recently...just over the past month, actually...I've felt big changes in my life. I know it sounds hokey, but it's as if I'm coming out from under a fog..... and kind of like the gravitational pull has eased up a bit. I feel lighter and more capable. Things that seemed like huge under-takings before are now just items to check off my to-do list. I feel like I'm taking charge of my life and getting things under control. Kind of like I'm standing up and ready to be counted. I'm sure many who read this will think it's just me being silly. That's okay. For those of you who are currently depressed or have been in the past....I just want you to know, I understand.
