Please note that this is a fairly personal post and I don’t want you feeling sorry for me or anything… I just need to get things out.
Yes, I phoned in to the doctor’s office and made an appointment for next Friday. I’m pretty proud of myself because usually I am too afraid to admit that something is wrong with me.
What’s the appointment for, you ask? Well, I think I’m depressed. It’s kind of ironic because I’m usually a very upbeat, positive and encouraging person. But lately, I’ve been feeling so completely overwhelmed that I feel that I am capable of doing nothing and have been extremely moody (especially in the negative direction). Plus, I pretty much have most if not all of the common symptoms.
This isn’t the first time I’ve thought that I was depressed. Two years ago I went in, got a recommend to see a psychologist but the office never called me back. So hopefully this time around goes better.
Well, what happens if I’m actually depressed or have some other mental illness? I guess I’ll go one day at a time and it’ll be an interesting journey. And find lots of online blogs and other resources. 😉
