Been A Long Time Gone

Hello Friends:

It's been nine months, and finally a new post. As the picture illustrates, the previous months have been an extreme struggle of trying to pull myself together enough to function in the daily world. The anxieties (and subsequent depressive episode) became so extreme for a time that even trying to write a short post for this blog became impossible. I was also forced to drop several contracts, which are the basis of my employment these days. Needless to say I was very unhappy to have to do it, but was able to focus more on my health in the meantime. A new psychologist, new meds, and some new routines are helping me start to pull the pieces back together. And so here I am. It will probably take most of the year to really come back out through this latest descent into depression, but given that I'm actually posting, I'd have to say things are slowly looking up.

Hi hostess- I hope all is well with you.

I'm worried about Stress Cat. Are his stripes OK?

Poor Stress Cat, I think his stripes are fine. But he needs a great deal of reassurance and validation so he can get over it and find something else to worry about.
