my battle for better health

Because I Won't Stay Silent

We've moved! Read this post and more on my new website.

























































































































I was about to head to bed for the night when I heard my email notification on my phone. I really should have known better, but I checked it. The following comment was left on my post 5 Things You Can Do To Help Someone With Depression:


And since we all know I can't shut up, here's my reply:

The wording of your comment is a bit confusing but I'll try to answer your questions. Yes, I am "sick". I have been diagnosed with several clinical physical and mental illnesses by multiple licensed medical professionals.

Yes, I am sick of all the this and I want to be well. I've gone to school. I do have a job (several in fact since I own my own business). I AM married. I have 3 kids. Dog? Check! I have 2 cats as well.

It's really easy to get lost in your own worries and misery, whether you have clinical depression or not. The whole point of these posts is to help myself and people with similar issues learn to pull ourselves out of it all and enjoy life.

Yes! I do love myself and I am very proud of all I have been able to accomplish. I'm going to keep on doing it, which means I will keep writing. :)


Just in case I wasn't clear enough in the comment above... As long as there are people out there like me who feel alone or don't know where to look for help, wherever there is pain or suffering... I will not go quietly into the night. I will not vanish without a fight. I will be the blogger the internet needs not the one it deserves. Wait... is that the ones it deserves but doesn't need? Hmm... It got away from me, yeah. No wonder. I just realized I didn't get my nap today!

I'll post again soon, don't you worry. It's really hard to shut me up once I start talking!

My goals

I want to have energy to spend time and actually do activities with my family.
I want to be able to be physically active. I’m not saying I plan on running marathons, but being able to exercise and do basic housecleaning on a daily basis would be nice.
I want my mind to feel less foggy all the time so I can do my job well and enjoy being in the profession I love.
I want to be healthy and be at a healthy weight.
I want my life back! I will look for the best in my life and realize what I truly have, always striving to make it better.
