It's possible...

During the worst of my depression (which is
revisiting itself now), I was in a day treatment
program at a hospital, and getting up everyday was
a struggle, but it was either that or be an inpatient.
something I NEVER EVER want to do or be again.

I have had sex since my depression came on, but
with an "old" friend, I'm not ready for a "relationship"
yet, whatever the heck that word means anymore.
It was nice to see that the parts still worked.

If I don't work, I don't eat, have a home, have my
pets, and so on. For the past three weeks it's been
all I can do to go to work. I was almost grateful
for the intestinal virus I have had this week so
I had a "real" excuse not to face the world. I
have no one to depend on, no one to "let" me crash
and burn. The idea of going on public assistance
is abhorent to me.

It's possible to have a life with this disease.
I'm of the unipolar depression variety. I am
living though, and I'm getting along. I see my
doctor, and I'm doing my "mood logs" again.
I take my medicine, I meditate and I pray. I cry
and I laugh. I bleed and I heal. I have to.
