So usually when I take a series of long writing breaks, it's because I am too depressed to write. I'm happy to say that my long absence has been due more to having too much going on, rather than nothing going on (for a change). The year has been overflowing (like a fountain, see pic :) although there has been both good and bad, it's mostly been good.
Yet, it's always unsettling to go back to the blog and keep trying to blog, no matter what has been blocking the writing. It's tough.
It's been an anxious year. I've had a lot of health concerns I've been trying to nail down, as well as lots of travel. I haven't been able to really get out and see friends, so I've been sort of isolated. And the kicker is that I've been trying an experiment to see if I can get back into 'real' work, at least part time. Very anxious.
It isn't as if I don't have oodles of ideas for posts. Since there has been so much going on, there has been lots and lots of fodder for posts. I just have to get the stuff down on 'paper' and get it, you know, posted. And I have a lot of catch-up reading to do on all of your blogs, as I get myself back into the swing of things here. Or try to, once again. Which is also an anxious sort of thing.
Up until about December or January I was pretty down, and I think getting out of that can be credited to adding some Abilify to the med mix. Celexa and my many supplements just weren't cutting it alone. I'll also give some credit to my light box as a good 'brightness fix' in the winter months. If you are like me, and feel down in winter, you might want to consider one of these. Mine is pretty effective.
So to wrap up this rambling post, I'm not going to promise too many more posts too soon, although I'd really like to get some of these ideas down. I've just been too sporadic over the last year. But as I try again to get back into other activities that put me into the world, I'm going to keep on trying. I look forward to reading up on your blogs!
