Not sure about the therapy....

...but yesterday, for no reason I could fathom, I sank into a pit so dark and deep it scared the living daylights out of me. 

Depression is a serious illness and not one to be taken lightly, but I do think "depression" is an over-used term and it gets used far too often to describe people who are, perhaps, going through a prolonged period of being a little down in the dumps and don't have the wherewithal to pull themselves out of it.  That happens to us all now and again.  I don't have depression, but yesterday I was in a place where I could see a glimpse of it and I don't want to go back there.

Today is much brighter!


  1. I'm sorry you've been feeling that way (have you given up coffee????) but glad you're feeling a bit lighter today!

  2. Sarah, it's not a constnt thing. It just comes over me in waves every now and again. And no, not given up the coffee so it's not that!

  3. Stick with coffee - it helps. Honest!

    Wish I was the sort of person who spouted wonderful inspirational words of wisdom but I generally talk utter shite so will say no more than I'm pleased today is brighter. Onwards and upwards. Big hugs.

  4. Been there. After the "pause" it hasn't been so aggressive. But, you know, just the other day I was there with you... chewing on the inside of my head
