Back from the Underworld

It’s been rough recently. I’ve gone through a couple of months (at least) of severe depression coupled with physical illness, and I haven’t done anything except drag myself back and forth from work. Lizzie doesn’t even recognise me anymore.

Black depression is something that is difficult to explain unless you’ve experienced it. it seems like the type of the that you should be able to just snap yourself out of, stop being a baby and a whiner, just get out and garden or jog or something and you’ll feel better in no time.

All I can say is, if you’ve never experienced it, you’re very lucky.

Anyway, although I’m not totally back, I’m going to make an effort to do some things. Ride Lizzie. Catch up on LJ. Clean my house.

Missed you all…

  1. Glad you’re still around. As useless as it is in me saying it, I hope you feel back to normal soon :)

  2. Sorry to hear that things have not been so go for you. Hope that getting out to do something other than work helps you.

  3. {{{hugs}}} … btdt etc too so know just how bad it can be … hope Lizzie likes you again soon

  4. I’ve been there before. I’m lucky in that the only time I had depression that lingered for a while was a long time ago and it hasn’t come back sense (I’ve had bit that’ve last a few days but not really more than that.) but I’ve not forgotten what it’s like. Plus I have recurring issues with anxiety; although they manifest in different ways, anxiety and depression are a lot alike.

    Sure, it seems you should be able to get over it just by doing something about it, but it’s a nasty, nasty disease with fierce claws and sharp teeth, clever as a rat and just as sly. It isn’t easy to deal with at all and I’m very sorry you’ve been going through it. I hope that you are feeling at least a little bit better?

  5. *tight squeezes*

    Nice to hear from you. I think we’ve both been under the same black cloud.

  6. Thank you all, very much. :) It helps to know that other people are out there…i’d feel so alone without that.
