Mental health - the long and winding road
Monday, November 23, 2020
It seems like ages since I've blogged and I even debated doing so today....but here I am! Not to sound too much like a broken record, but my mental health has been acting up again. I'm sure some of you can relate, sadly.
I am a fighter, though. I refuse to disappear altogether! I might disappear from Spark for weeks or months on end because I just can't log in. Physically, I can log in but mentally, I cannot. The times that I disappear are when I'm fighting my hardest battles. Those are the days, when everything is so dark. Dark to the point where if I didn't have such a wonderful support system, I think I would be looking for a way out. Yes, it does get to that point!
Anyway, I feel a little bit of light peaking through the darkness today so I'm allowing myself to appreciate that. That light might be dimmed tomorrow and I'll take that when it comes. The mental journey, for me, has been a very long and winding road.
