Writing this post as a form of my own therapy lesson! 🙂 Dealing With Depression for 3 straight days? Was it depression or just me being in a bad mood? Have you felt short periods of depression that go away?
Dealing with depression sucks! This is meant to be a short post, and no I am not editing it (that is me living on the edge)! So this last week, I don’t know what got in me but I was feeling really depressed. It was 3 straight days with the worst feelings ever. I actually couldn’t pinpoint what was making me so sad. Anything was setting me off and the tears would flow down my face uncontrollably. The hugs and concerns from my husband weren’t really helping. I knew my feelings weren’t normal. It was like an extreme case of 3 days of the post baby depression I felt with my youngest.
So I have kicked those feelings to the curb and I am able to go along with my day (for the last few days), but those feelings were scary. I am not sure how people deal with depression all the time. It was a different feeling than just feeling upset or having a bad day. I am blaming it on being something hormonal or just an act of crazy. It went away on it’s own. It sucked! Well I think I am back to normal! I am blaming the hormones on this one, but definitely keeping all of my readers who are dealing with real long term depression in my thoughts!
I have had a lot of pressure on my shoulders for over a year now, but I am always upbeat and very strong willed. I am not sure what got in me. HUGS to everyone who deals with this all of the time.
I believe the rain storm will dry up, the sun will come out, and I will see the rainbow of good moods flowing at me again! I am not sure if that was true depression, because I think it is over and I hope it doesn’t come back!
