A fabulous black woman living under the cloud of depression and the stigma that comes along with it!
Good day all, been a busy morning. I’m home finally and about ready to cook and get the house decorated for Christmas. I usually feel a little blue around this time, because I clean houses for people who are having family over and house guests! I’m a little jealous because I have such a weird family on my hubby side and mines! Dreaming of BIG dinners with everyone over is just a dream!!! So I saw this quote and decided as crazy as these 2 years have been, I’m very thankful for a lot! I’m thankful I got my dad together, receiving my degrees, finding a job, and for my son/hubby!!! It’s been such a stressful 2 years I can’t think of a time when something wasn’t going on with me. I’m so thankful that I was diagnosed with my illness, because I now know what it’s like to be sick without looking that way. I found out who my real friends were and how family treat you when your down!! These things taught me so much, and now I can’t imagine trying to end my life. I’m thankful for the thoughts of suicide, because it made me realize that I would only be leaving a burden to my son. I’ve grown a lot since I started this blog and I’m thankful for all of you who take the time to read it!!! Thankful for the kind words of advice and the encouraging comments!!! I’m definitely in a better place now!!! Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving. 🦃chat soon….
