Apologies to any of you who were looking forward to #TeachingTuesday. I’ve missed it the second week in a row. Last week I missed it because of holiday busyness and I figured that you all probably didn’t notice because of your own holiday busyness.
Yesterday I missed because I was hopeless and overwhelmed. In short, my depression seems to have ramped up a bit in the past few weeks. It isn’t particularly difficult for me to get out of bed. The difficult part is staying out of bed. The minute I have to do something real, like check my email, all I want to do is crawl back in bed, curl into a ball, and pull the covers over my head.
It’s been difficult, lately, to stay out of bed and get through the day. All of this despite regular use of my light box, antidepressants, a very talented therapist, and golden milk.
I’ll try to keep posting because, even when it seems like too much, it always makes me feel better. However, I cannot promise any kind of regularity until I find a little more mind-body-spirit balance.
In the meantime, be well, friends.
