It’s evening – 1858 as I start typing this post. I made it through today! Yay!
Today’s Big Bad Thing was a difficult conversation I had to have with the dearly beloved around my inability to work at present. That might sound like a small thing, but as I’m sure you’ll understand, we all have our triggers. He, as always, was pretty jolly awesome. ❤ Yes, I am extremely lucky. Neurotic, but lucky. Depressed and anxious, but lucky. Relieved, and lucky!
This evening I am grateful for the mental health community on WordPress and, in particular, all the wonderful people who helped me through today. It was a battle: my depressed and anxious mind twisted reality into a pretzel-shaped destruction tornado, but thanks to contact, supportive messages and conversations, I was able to get through the long hours until my S.O. came home.
Thank you. Thank you so much. You are treasures.

It seems to me that quite a few of us are going through rough patches at present. Are there ways we can support each other? Without falling into the trap of trying to fix each other? Perhaps a private, invite-only group on Facebook? Just an idea. Add your comments below or drop me at line at dysthymia dot bree at gmail dot com. XX DB
