I can't quite believe it's already a year. So much seems to get in the way of grand intentions. What a lovely life lesson to see that you don't just chuck it all because something got in the way... you step back, take a look and where you've been and where you want to go, and you re-commit and dig into life again.
So I'm digging in...
I've battled with depression for years now, and saw myself falling down a hole since finally deciding to go the medication route. I tried two different medicines since last December, both with nasty side effects that left me just reeling. This latest, only a week into it, has left me so grateful for modern medicine! I feel like a brand new person! Like the curtains have been opened up to a beautiful spring day -- and they were some seriously heavy, drab curtains, let me tell you!
So... re-assessing, re-committing. It is GOOD to be alive! I LOVE waking up happy.
