Blogging helps depression!

Yes, it really does. I read an article on Health Magazine's website then I thought about a bit and said it has helped me tremendously. I started this blog to get my crazy thoughts out there. I did not care about people reading it. I only wanted to get it out of my head. Knitting also helps me with my depression, though it does cause frustration at times. I came across this article from MSNBC with my knitting blogging depression googling I was doing. My shadow still follows me around constantly and it is a battle that may never go away. I am prepared to fight it and dodge it. My blogging has taken a back seat lately to some of my problems like my father's health and Mom in the nursing home but I have also felt that the shadow was hanging over me. I must think that I won't be able to help anyone if I don't take care of myself, physically and mentally.

  1. I just came across your blog while searching the web to find out how to start my own blog as an outlet for my depression. Just curious if you may have any tips or advice for me to get started. FYI....I've never blogged before. Please help!

  2. Well, honestly, I felt if I wrote my thoughts down it would help me. I didn't think I would do well writing in a paper journal so I started the blog.

    I did not care who read it at first. I just got what was inside me out. It has helped me along with the therapy and medicine. I can tell by reading it how things have changed.
