A cool fact about me is that I struggle with/try and keep a handle on depression. Good times, good times. One of the reasons I started this blog is to have an avenue to share truths about myself that I didn’t always feel comfortable admitting to. I’m self conscious and want people to like me soooo ya. Middle child, need I say more? Now that I’m old (practically 50, what?!) I care more about how I live my life than how others perceive my life. Came with age and lots of self help books!
So parenting with depression is fun. I’ll probably write more about this in future posts but for now I just wanted to let you know that there are many of us out here that find raising kids while navigating the dark clouds of depression HARD. Yup, I give up all the time. I do it monthly, I have the stamps to prove it. 4 more and I get a free car wash. It takes medication, conscious effort, some good ole CBT and
chocolate healthy snacks to get me through some days.
