#Depression makes it worse

      2 Comments on #Depression makes it worse

As the day has gone on, my stress level has steadily increased. The boys are in bed and sleeping. They need their rest after a long day. Lizze and I are watching Jack Ryan on Amazon but I think I’m done for the night.

My stress level is at a point where my left eye has been twitching so much that I have a tension headache.

I’m overwhelmed, worried and have way too much on my plate at the moment. When I get to this point, my ability to cope is severely impaired. This is when I can feel the out stretched arms of depression reaching out for me.



I don’t know how to describe it. It’s like on most days I can keep my depression at bay. When I have the resources available to keep myself righted and moving forward, things are okay for me. When life chews into too many of my available resources, I can’t effectively cope.

That’s pretty much where I am tonight.

I know tomorrow is a new day and I’m clinging to that for strength. Right now however, I battling thoughts of wanting to give up because it’s too hard to keep going.

It will be very important for me to go walking tomorrow be a use the physical activity helps me to rain balanced.

Like I said, tomorrow is a new day and I’m remaining focused on the fact that things will get better. Things will get better.

When you think about it, how could you not have periods of depression and how could it not become part of your life when you have a child who has autism. How could you not feel depressed knowing and experiencing the pain of having to watch your child trying to make… Read more »
