The normal person so it seems hits bumps in the road as we walk along our life path. Many of us have dealt with depression since childhood, though for some this may be a brand new experience. To add to the ever changing landscape of our lives there may have been events which trigger bouts with depression that was once thought under control. The familiar idiom, two steps forward, one step back. Then, new found anxiety and panic. Through everyday life changes we learn to adapt. We learn that their are tools that help us overcome those challenges. As we continue to grow some are lucky enough to move on and hopefully never ever have to look back. Some people may go for the rest of their lives without having to deal with the terrible traits again. Not everyone is that fortunate. An event or seemingly nothing at all can trigger another bout with one or more, AGAIN. So we pick up our tool box and start working, AGAIN. If only it was as easy as it sounds in this little write up of mine.
At the age of 54 out of nowhere, just when my life was coming together I was hit hard with menopause (OH! goody!! NOT!) paired with PTSD from something that happened in my early twenties. I already had in control and was coming out of the financial and emotional ramifications of a very dark depression I survived when my rose colored glasses were ripped off when my son was stationed overseas in early 2010. I happen to be a very good research analyst and while he was gone, I put my expertise to work. Unfortunately, there are things once discovered that you can never unlearn.
One of the wonderful things I learned from that dark depression is, for me, a most helpful and fulfilling part of my lifetime gathered hand dandy survival tips and tricks that are carried in my tool box-are best shared with a side of humor and wit. I help “me” by sharing and listening to other’s tales and tips of success. Trust me a lot of people carry those tool boxes. Just because you don’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there.
So here I am…Once again, knowing I need a little help from my friends and perhaps with this blog I can make some new.
