Today, I’m in bed. Was yesterday, too. Low blood pressure and fatigue have come for a visit again, but it doesn’t keep me from writing or perusing the blogosphere. You all keep me going…your blog posts and your progress in your writing lives and the fact that you all share REALBIE things… it keeps the depression that creeps up on me at bay.
Yesterday, Tinkerbell, the daughter that struggles with a strong addiction to Oxycodone and Zanax, called me in tears. She’s really struggling with the withdrawals. Depression has been at her back door to the point she doesn’t want to be around the Glowstick. She asked, “What can I do, mommy?”
I said, “Find something you like to do even if its eating a pint of your favorite ice cream, walk, watch a funny movie, but don’t curl up into a ball and be alone.” I take my own advice everyday since I wrangle with depression. Wished my daughter could find a group of peeps like all of you.
Anyway, while perusing this morning, I found a fellow blogger with similar thyroid issues to mine. She posted about what she’s going through. And I wanted to share just in case someone else is feeling blue, fatigued, nauseas, dizzy, achy, foggy, etc..Marta pleads with every woman to get their thyroid checked. It could save your life or at least help you to cope.
Marta, thanks for being a REALBIE. Hugs and chocolate to you and to everyone else!
