Probably The Worst

This is probably the worst depression I’ve had in a long time and I’m so tired of putting on a happy face so no one else worries.

I can’t find anything positive. If you ask me what’s wrong, I couldn’t tell you other than I’m depressed. I just feel like curling up into a ball and staying that way forever.



SO I’ve survived another year–we had our last competition this weekend until January of next year.  The girls did well, earning highest honors in one dance and 2nd highest for all the others.  The classes were good as well–one I actually enjoyed watching was musical theater–it did a scene from a musical about a newspaper reporter in New York.  It was funny to watch him teach it and the girls learn it.

But I am so very tired today from the trip.  I slept in despite my best intentions. But I’ve done grocery shopping and laundry so don’t feel too bad about being a little lazy this morning.  We’re not quite off the merry-go-round yet–the little one leaves Saturday for church camp and will be gone until Wednesday.  And the middle one has already started band camp for next year.  So there’s some overlap in activities.  But we do have one week that is clear before school starts and I’m hoping everything will go well.

I did fairly well during the competition but was really jumpy and antsy during the two days of classes.  I tried to read the whole time and did do two books but I spent a lot of time pacing around outside, too.  Very anxious. Even with Xanax.  But now I’m home and can rest up a bit.



What the World Needs Now

The song goes “What the world needs now, is love sweet love. No not just for some, but for everyone.” I read two articles this morning that go a long way to make this happen. Our city holds the Ladies’ … Continue reading

Weekly Wrap-Up July 18, 2016

Mood I’ve running as such a high lately that I assumed, as we know, it was all going to come crashing down with major depression. I was right and I was wrong. I did hit some depression for a couple of days, but wasn’t so major that I couldn’t function. Pretty much a funk that […]

Kitt’s New Media Kit

Getting ready for BlogHer16 I set up a new Media kit page. Noticed that my statistics have fallen this year. Yes, 2016 is not over. Still, it is more than half over, and I’m at lower than half the views I had last year. I know I’ve been busy with caregiving. I’m blogging more about it and less about bipolar disorder. I’m not able to read and comment on as many blogs as I did before. Oh, well. Honestly, I’m not quite sure why I’m even setting up a media kit, for I’m not strongly motivated to monetize my blog.
