What a Difference a Few Months Make

4 Apr

A few months ago I was home, sick and suffering from S.A.D. with no motivation, no gumption, no old-fashioned get up and go to make me get off the couch. All I did was sit there and watch Grey’s Anatomy from season one on and feel like moving was the most anyone could ask of me that day.

The last few days I’ve been sick. I’ve been home watching Grey’s anatomy, season five. I haven’t moved, nor gotten off the couch save to get myself food, but the difference…ahhh…the difference is amazing. I’m here because I’m sick and drained of energy, not because I can’t move because I’m paralyzed by depression. The medication worked. Exercise worked. It’s less than three months later, and I feel like I have my life back. Like I’m me again. Thank God for that, because my couch was beginning to have a permanent dent.

More tomorrow, thanks for reading!

    I’m not happy to hear that you are sick, but I’m happy that you have made such positive improvements in the past few months and really have noticed a difference. Way to go!

    I’ve actually been meaning to talk to my doctor about S.A.D, as I’ve noticed for a long time that I’m highly affected by the seasons, and that it greatly affects my level of happiness and overall energy. I’d never even heard of SAD until reading your blog, so thank you for that. If you don’t mind sharing, would you let me know what medication you are on to help with this? I’d just love some info from a real person before I make an appointment.
