Not Depressed Anymore

Hello Everyone 🙂

So I’ve had a bit of a rough last few weeks (which is why recent content has been rather depressing).  I apologize for the melancholy mood.  It’s just that I’ve been struggling with depression, and writing is a good outlet for me.  Why was I depressed?  Well…  

A few weeks ago I went to the doctor.  My stomach has bothered me for years, but I never went to see anyone about it.  He believed I had acid reflux, and so I started taking medication.

Within just two days of taking the meds I noticed a difference in myself.  I usually try be positive about life and see the glass as half-full, but I just wasn’t feeling it.  I suspected the meds, but decided it couldn’t be that.

Weeks went by, and it only worsened.  I cried just about every day, and I was overwhelmed with grief.  I suddenly felt alone in a world of people.  Even with friends reaching out to me, I felt lonely and sad.  I was trapped in a hole, and no one could dig me out.

I hit a low point.  I couldn’t take the pain anymore.  I didn’t know why I was suddenly so sad for such a long period of time.  It was consistent.  Friends and family started noticing a big change in me as well.

About a week ago I decided to stop taking the meds to see how I felt.  At this point in time, I feel 100%.  I’m not depressed anymore.  I’m loving my life, living for God, and looking for the positives once again.

With all that being said, thank you to everyone who was an encouragement to me during this time.  I want to sent a special thank you to Isabella Simons for praying for me during this time.  She is a beautiful young woman of God, and such an encouragement to her readers.  She read one of my posts and offered to pray for me when I was dealing with the depression.  I absolutely recommend that you check out her blog “The Song of Isabella Simons”.  I am so grateful to know her in the blogging community!

Thanks for reading this post, and I will keep in touch!
