It’s not a secret that I struggle with depression and have for a very long time. I may not have written about it on the blog before but it’s not something I care to hide. The past year I’ve been managing fairly well, including my anxiety but following this summer I really started to struggle again. Over a year ago I started working with my doctor to figure out the best ways to manage it with and without medication and I choose to do what I felt was best for me. For the most part, it hasn’t been a problem up until recently. At the end of the summer, Conor started his second year in medical school, I was at a new job, my family has moved away and I just was not able to cope with all the changes. For a while I would try things like meditation, yoga, going for walks and while those are wonderful ways to manage stress and keep healthy, it wasn’t helping like I had hoped.
