When I decided to post about struggling with depression I was irritated and tired and probably not in the best frame of mind. It seemed like a good thing to do at the moment.
When I woke up we had to leave early and I didn't have the time to remove the post. I was totally stressing about it. I just kept thinking ~ Great~ Now I've waived my freak flag high as can be for the entire world to see! Kind of embarrassing.
Well, by the time I was able to log on I had a ton of comments. I felt so much better and not quite so embarrassed!
So, I just wanted to say thanks for all the support. It definitely made me feel better!
Also, I had a lot of people asking me if I was on medication etc.. what was I doing, so I thought I'd take a moment and give a quick update. I did go to the Dr and he is running some test ~hormones, thyroid etc.. My hair is falling out like crazy, I am tired and dizzy, emotional, and having panic attacks. He thought maybe hormones are a major culprit. I hope so. I was put on medication to deal with the depression and he told me it would take a good 30 days to feel better. I AM feeling better. Still emotional~ A little weepy not much energy but I am not sobbing uncontrollably anymore. I feel hopeful now like I can get a grip which is a good improvement. So..I am just glad to be feeling a bit better!
This is not the first time I spoke first then was embarrassed later and I am sure it won't be the last . I think I could learn to use a little restraint! Oh well Ü
