Christmas can be rough for those like me with #Depression but I’m feeling pretty okay

When I originally started writing this post, it was just a basic update. As I was writing, it evolved a bit and will now serve a dual purpose.

While this is still an update, I also wanted to share a bit about my Depression because it helps to remind or make people aware that Christmas can be hard for like me with Depression.

Last night the boys spent the night with Lizze’s parents. Lizze and I used that time to take care of a few outstanding Christmas related things.

It’s been a little while since I had some time off and I’ve been struggling with Depression a bit more than usual lately. When you’re depressed, exhaustion is absolutely not your friend. For me personally, exhaustion makes it harder to fight my thoughts and that quickly gets overwhelming.

Lizze and I made sure that when we were done hitting the stores we had to hit, we set time aside for a cheap date night. It’s important that we take time to focus on our marriage and our friendship because it’s very easy to put our relationship on the back burner.
