Sometimes it’s hard for me to write. This is the case for a number of reasons. Depression, exhaustion, life and a few other things, all have a role but I thought I would spend some time today, playing catch-up.
While I try to share as much as I can in regards to our life, there are way more things that go on that just never make it to the blog.
There’s not a reason for this it just sorta happens.
I get questions all the time about things that people have been waiting to hear updates about and I’m finally in a place to sit down and get everyone caught up on some of the things I haven’t talked about in awhile.
It turned out to be a completely severed ACL and there was no way we could provide her with the $6,000+ surgery she would need to fix it. The last time I spoke about this, I talked about how we were told to keep her in her kennel for about two weeks.
The two weeks came and went. It did seem to help because she was physically able to put weight in her leg again but it didn’t take her long to overdue it and lose the progress that was made.
Thankfully, because the ACL was completely severed, there is no pain and she’s not suffering in any way. This permanent injury doesn’t seem to slow her down much but she does tuck her leg up when she runs.
She actually caught an adult rabbit the other day, so this definitely doesn’t slow her down. Don’t worry about the rabbit. Maggie just held it down and licked it. The rabbit was covered in Maggie slobber but never injured.
My war on Depression
I’ve often shared with my readers and the world, my experience with Depression. It’s been a long time since I’ve talked about it, so I thought I would include that here.
Depression is a tricky thing. It’s not something you can see just by looking at me but it very much impacts a large part of my life.
Some of the things that I have experienced as a result of being depressed are exhaustion (which would be there anyway), lack of motivation, inability to focus on the positive, sleep disturbances (if I actually get a chance to sleep), weight gain, loss of interest in things I used to enjoy doing and a very difficult time writing.
