I haven't posted in a long time - I was starting to feel so much better after Labor Day and with the summer over.  I am always so down in the summer.  I was feeling like things were coming together for me.  My son with epilepsy was given the OK to drive again and we are getting along so much better now that he feels he has his life back.  Unfortunately, I feel like I have nothing to look forward to.  I usually take a Thanksgiving trip with my sons but we are staying home this year.  I'm also trying to find a part time job but no luck so far.
I feel I just sit around and do nothing but watch TV and read.  I don't have the energy I used to - I think I am slowing down as I am getting older.  I just wish there could be something good to look forward to.  I know I should get out of the house but that is hard to do when you feel so down.

Hi Aurora -- I remember you with your lovely name!

Sounds to me like that depression is playing up again. I know often we can predict our depressions by the seasons, but sometimes they just come on to mix things up a bit. I can only write a short message just now as I'm going out in a mo and am cutting things fine already, but I wanted to give you a hug (((Aurora))) first and say that I really think you should pop along to your doc and get some help at this time. -- There *are* things for you to look forward to, but I know those phases with the depression, and nothing on earth can convince you of that when you're there -- which is when you need a bit of help to restore your sense of life. For now just know that *I* know you have things to look forward to and am rooting away for you.
