After an extended leave from everything, I'm finally back. The last couple of months have been very difficult for me and my family and everything just kind of came crashing down on me at once. It took much longer than expected for my husband to find a job (he's working now - yay!!), we had no money, we applied for all kinds of services and were able to get some help with things. I applied for Social Security Disability and have recevied notification that they have determined I am disabled and I'll start receiving benefits in April. Another yay!!
During all of this my depression was worsening each day, while waiting for the woman at the doctor's office to get her thumbs unstuck from her butt I ran out of my meds, which in turn worsened the depression. I got to a point that I knew I needed to be in the hospital or I wouldn't be here any more. I was there for almost 3 weeks. Now I'm feeling more like me every day, still depressed but not nearly as bad as I was. Being back on the meds does wonders!
I'm not only back at Healing Well as a member but as a Moderator again. I will do my best to catch up with how and what everyone is doing by reading posts and will answer new ones as they come up. I've missed everyone here and I kept thinking that I should come here to get the support and help I needed. But honestly, I just couldn't do anything; especially while off the meds. I really felt like I had to hide from everyone and everything.
But I'm back and here to stay! I'll be "talking" to you soon. I'm so happy to be back to this wonderful family - it's where I belong!!
