My last post was the first post I’ve written since I took a break from blogging, If you haven’t read that post I will link it here. It explains whats been happening and why I’ve been taking a break.
I am now feeling ready to start blogging again and getting my life back on track. Over the next few post I want to share with you how I’m getting my life back to normal and how I’m battling against my depression, with a few leg ulcer updates added along the way.
At first I brushed everything under the carpet and put any thought of depression out of my mind. I just kept thinking ‘ I couldn’t have depression, I have to carry on, I have to be the best mum I can be.’ However a few months of doing this, I wasn’t feeling any better, I was feeling worse. I was beginning to be an emotional wreck and my whole family were starting to suffer.
I ended up having a very emotional mini breakdown over something really stupid, that’s when I knew I needed some help and finally admitted I may have a level of depression.
I want to form a mini series about my depression and what steps I’m taking to try and pull myself out of it, with the help from my Doctors, my family and my own strength.
I have come up with a plan of ideas for my next few post.
- Restarting my routines.
- Trusting my doctor.
- Morning pages – How they are helping me.
- Opening up to my family.
- Getting my leg ulcer under control.
- Everyone has bad days.
I didn’t realise how much a mental illness can effect someones whole life, now I’m feeling strong enough to work through this, I really hope some of these post will help others with their depression.
If there is anything you would like to know about my depression or how I’m slowly recovering, I would love to hear from you.
It would be lovely to hear from anyone else that is suffering with depression and find out how you are coping with it.
