I can finally say with pride I am out of the depression cycle. FINALLY!!! Sorry for yelling, but it feels so good.
Depression, my old friend, it really something. I am glad to be rid of you.
Coming out of a depression cycle really feels as if you are coming out of a fog. I was struggling for weeks with depression, and I will admit I was apprehensive that I was in for the long haul. Some of my worst depression cycles lasted years, and this current cycle really felt like that–I came out the other side stronger.
I felt like I needed this cycle, I may not have liked it, but it was necessary. I usually go through some depression during the winter time. I was spoiled because depression did not touch me October-December, where I typically have my worst depression of the year. I was due.
Lifting the depression fog was due to a few things. For a few days I gave into the depression and let it over take me.
I wrote blog posts about what I felt so that I could process my thoughts and feeling. When I felt a little better, I would do the things that make me happy. I binge watched my favorite shows when I couldn’t bring myself to leave my bed. Above all, I told myself, “it is okay to not be okay.”
If you are dealing with depression, know there is always an end to the cycle. I have proven that depression is not forever. If you ever need anything I am available to chat. My number is public: 831-287-4369.
Always Keep Fighting
My GoFundme Campaign
I am still raising money so that my blog can reach more people through the WordPress Business level. This blog is partially funded with my own money, but it takes a lot to take The Bipolar Writer to the next level. It means the content on this blog can reach more people and help end the stigma of mental illness. If you can please donate! It means the world to the contributors, followers and of course The Bipolar Writer.
Recently we were able to reach 11,000 plus followers on the blog. I am not asking for significant donations rather small ones. $1-$2 dollars will go a long way! I am getting closer to the overall goal, but we still have a ways to go. So if you can please donate. I would like to end the campaign at the end of the month if possible! Please help us reach the goal!
We have raised $250! That is amazing.
We are still short of our goal of $325, the cost of the upgrade for a year. If we raise enough, I’d like to upgrade for the next two years (which totals $435.) If you can donate it would mean the world to me, if not I understand. 100% of what is raised will stay with the blog and only used to upgrade.
