So Low: A Postscript

OK, so this morning I was in a pretty low place.

This little postscript is a tribute to the dearly beloved who cajoled/nagged/forced me to go out for a coffee.

It was a game changer.

Not only that, it demonstrates the importance of a “support team” when dealing with mental health.

I’m fortunate to have my partner who helps me out, but I know not everyone has a supportive person to share their home with. I hope online communities can pick up at least some of the slack.

In the meantime – kudos to those who kick us out the door! You’ve done well.

thanks heart

P.S. If anyone can tell me why WordPress continually recommends “Oceania” as a tag for my posts, I’d be interested to hear the answer!

  1. I am so glad to hear that you are doing better. Support teams are essential to my well being. I live with two of the best, but in addition to them my weekly support group and even friends on line help out when I’m having issues.


  2. Hurray for your dearly beloved! It sometimes takes a lot to get out the door but it is so worth it. Alas, I do not have a support team at home and it can be challenging. Well, the cat insists that I at least get out of bed to feed her, so there is that. 😉


    • Huzzah to your cat! Yes, I do realize how lucky I am. Well, as a general rule I’m not a huge fan of the word ‘lucky’ in cases like this – let’s say instead that I made a wise choice some years ago which has continued to work out well! 🙂
