Two and a half weeks update

Yes, Anonymous, I suppose I owe you an update.

I'm writing this later in the afternoon when I tend to be at my grumpiest so do take that into account.

I don't have much to report. Since we last spoke, I've had one pretty big life change - one that's greatly affecting my sleep schedule - and one professional slap. I don't really feel like getting too much into either of these except to say that both are leaving me feeling rather down on myself and in general.

Vague enough?

Anyway, I only say that as something of a way of giving folic acid the benefit of a doubt. I haven't noticed any improvement beyond what I described earlier and I find that I'm sleeping in again. However, I have real life reasons to be a bit depressed, not just the usual unbalance. Perhaps I'd be feeling worse than I do if it weren't for the supplement. It's impossible to say.

So, I'm down but only a little and certainly not out. And, most importantly I suppose, I still have hope.

There's your update. We'll see what time brings.

And, if you're on the edge of you seat about the atheism thing, sorry I haven't done that yet. As you can see, life has me a little distracted just now and since this is a largely non-paying gig, I have to prioritize my keyboard time. I'll get to it.

Thanks for the update.

But you thought wrong; you don't owe me or anybody anything. Post if you want; don't bother if you don't want to. It's your blog, your rules. Who cares what some crazy depressed person out there who hides behind an anonymous moniker to bitch about her life that sucks donkey balls says anyway?

No matter, I really am sorry to hear about your situation. I've been hit with "reality" too, so I can understand.

Take care.

I am VERY glad to hear that you still have HOPE.

I'm truly sorry to hear about your hardships. Life really can dish out a lot of CRAP, can't it. Just remember that it dishes out crap to EVERYONE and try not to let it beat you down.

Keep in mind, as well, that part of the "recovery" process is changing your way of thinking, your perspective, as well. When you have thought one way for so can be hard to let go and break depreciating habits.

Chin up. I'm still rooten' for you.

yeah..."chin up" was kind of lame. Just go with know what I mean. :)

Anonymous is right you don't owe any or us or any one anything. I know I don't want to add to your depression. I am however very interested in what you write when you do write. I too am glad to see you have hope. I wish you the best and hope your current situation improves.
