This will be a super quick post but important nonetheless. I’ve been very open about my struggles with depression. I’m not ashamed and I truly hope doing so helps at least one other person to open up about their struggle with depression.
I made a major decision about how I’m managing my depression.
Some of you will be happy to hear this and others will just be gaining insight. This has been a sort of hot button issue between myself and some of my concerned readers.
For many years, I’ve taken the same approach to my depression management and its worked for the most part.
However, after some soul searching and discussions with my wife, I’ve decided that I will begin seeing someone outside of our family therapist. This will be just for me and while I stand by my decisions up to this point, I recognize that I’m struggling more than I have been and I’m willing to try something different in order to help me be a better version of me. I want this for myself, my wife and especially my kids.
They deserve better and frankly, so do I.
I don’t know how it’s going to go or if it’s even going to make a difference, but I won’t know until I try…
As I’m writing this, I’m sitting in the parking lot, ready to have my first appointment. Wish me luck…
