Still rejoicing over finding a antidepressant that works! I give God the glory for the wisdom He gave my doctor!
But really, I feel normal again! Haven’t felt this well for this long in about 2 years! If you’ve ever experienced clinical depression, I hope you know what I’m talking about.
If you read my post Where’s Tammy?, you might understand where I was. And that was only 2 weeks ago! The waves have stopped, the water is still. And I CAN BREATHE!
I no longer have the struggle just to move. I catch myself doing things like washing the dishes, or straightening up the house, or just being nice to someone, without all the effort. Those things, most things actually, took so much effort! Wow, and praise the Lord, is all I can say!
Hopefully this will also mean I’ll kick some butt in the losing weight area! My 15 year class reunion is in late September, and I’d like to lose some inches before then!
I used to judge people with depression. I used to think they didn’t have enough faith, or must have some great sin in their life holding them down. Now, I’m not saying those things don’t happen, but who am I to judge? My depression was a chemical imbalance in my brain. It wasn’t because I didn’t pray enough, or spend enough time reading my Bible, or was just lazy, it was a disease, just like MS.
Speaking of MS, things are good there too. My body’s still not a fan of heat, but that’s OK. I’m having some weird vision issues, but nothing disabling. Not fully healed, yet. But will be someday. Either on this side of Heaven, or the other side!
Please take a moment to read my other post about supporting my mission trip is Costa Rica (here). Thanks!
