Feelings vs Depression

In the last week or so I have felt: happy, sad, motivated, proud, angry, disappointed, uncertain, annoyed, content, silly, tired, appreciated, loved, challenged, smug, chastised, relieved.

I have not felt despairing, hopeless, or desperate.

Isn't that nice?

  3. @Todd - ha! I suppose so. I'm happy about this because it seems like the way healthy people experience life. Lots of feelings, good and bad, without falling into a pit of despair.

    @Jerri and oms - thank you. It's a gift even to notice a good week.

  4. Hello, I came across this and I feel SO badly that you have had to go through all this. I am a pastor's wife and have never had any issues like this but I do know that even on a good day, being a PW has its "interesting points" (!). I do pray that this Christmas will find you seeing the blessings and not the pain. Thank you for sharing. Peg Mundahl
