You're still here? Really? Last chance....... okay, you asked for it.
I've been depressed. There, I said it. I don't need to be medicated or hauled back into therapy. I'm simply having a brief relationship with The Blues. It's nothing some exercise, sunshine, and time to reflect won't help.
What caused this affair with old Mr. Melancholy? It started as money worries. I know no one can relate to that, right? Lately it seems there is never enough, and I live a pretty low key lifestyle. I know people who live on far less than I have, including me a few years ago, so I know lack of money is not the end of the world.
Then I found out that a very dear friend has cancer. If you've read my blog before, you know how I feel about cancer. It sucks!!! I have every hope and belief she is going to beat this, so I stay positive. I just hate that she has to go through it.
So, that's what's been going on with me. No excuse for not writing, but there it is. I'm coming to the other side of the Blues. I'm sure it will be back someday, but I'll beat it then too. I want to end this entry with a quote I ran across the other day. It seems so perfect for me and our whole society. As we continue to struggle in wars across the sea, an economy in turmoil, and people who have to choose between feeding themselves or their children this reminds us that will still need something more.
