Depression Sucks

I’d like to apologize to my small group of viewers for my lack of posts over the last two weeks.  I have been dealing with a depressive episode for the last two weeks.  It hasn’t completely passed, but at least I can get out of bed now.  Over the last couple of weeks, I haven’t had an appetite at all, and some days I didn’t even eat.  I’m sure I lost some weight, but I don’t have a scale to check.  The important thing is that I think I’m coming out of this particular episode, and I should be able to be more productive, therefore more capable of posting consistently.

While I have been stuck in bed most of the last two weeks, I have been able to force myself out for a select few things, most importantly my job search.  I’ve been looking for work since the beginning of the year, and only in the last week has anything panned out as a possibility.  I applied for Inspiration Field, which is a program that helps higher functioning disabled and mentally handicapped people live normal lives and find work.  I have a second interview for the position tomorrow, which I understand to be when I will be formally offered the job.  I will be working 14-16 hour shifts overnight to supervise the houses where these individuals live.

In conclusion, I may officially have a job by the end of this week, and depression is a bitch.

  2. Thank you. I’ve been dealing with this without medication for a while, but it’s been getting worse in the last year or so, and I may need some new coping mechanisms. I see you’ve written a bit on the topic, maybe I can effective that works for you.
