Talking About Life With Depression on Facebook

Facebook blog photo


I decided I should get into the 21st century. So I created a Facebook page for my blog!

I would love it if you could hop on over and “like” me.

I can’t say that I have been doing well. I am struggling. Maybe it is the endless winter with storm after storm or the fact that Dad has been in the hospital or that work has been bad or that I am wicked lonely or a combination of them all.  I think it is just a combination and I am worn down.

I am going to be 40 in a few months and I don’t want to be feeling this way. I have no energy. I called myself a sort of zombie going through the motions the other day. I don’t know. If I don’t take my migraine meds, I have headaches all the time. I can’t take it anymore.

I must take care of myself. Seriously. Why is this so hard?

I am just holding out for the weekend because mostly I have nothing to do.

Dad was moved to a rehab nursing home last night. It is depressing because it is owned by the same people that owned the one my Mom was in and it is like going back in time. I am hoping he will be out in 5 or 6 weeks.


  1. Jen, I hope your father's stay in the rehab nursing home will not be long. I understand about the feeling of going back in time. My father was in a nursing home when he died. Since then my mother has been in a nursing home for rehab several times. It's really hard for me to even be in a nursing home to visit.

    The calendar says spring, but I know the weather in a lot of places is saying otherwise. I hope that the sun will shine and the warmth will come soon to your area.

    I know it's hard to take care of yourself. Perhaps you could try doing at least one good thing for yourself each day to start off.

    I stopped by and "liked" your FB page. Look forward to following! :-)

  2. I really do think some of it may be seasonal - at least with some of your comments in previous posts. I do sincerely hope things get better my friend and the spring birds start chirping and the weather warms :)

  3. I'm sorry you're struggling, Jen. I hope things get better for you in the next few days and that the weekend is good and relaxing. I also hope your dad recovers quickly and gets home soon.

  4. Oh, hugs, Jen!! I'm sorry. It HAS been a rough winter with all the snow. I'm so over it too.


I love your comments!
