wordsinsync's Monday Madness


I have suffered on and off with depression.Sometimes I need to take prozac for a couple of months to get back on my even keel. I am writing about this for two reasons.One~Wordsinsync's blogging challenge.Two~I don't think I've shared this with y'all.When I first got sick with crohns disaese I became very depressed.It took away everything that I wanted to do.It took the Dr three years to first get it under control.It being the immense pain.Then I had to have three feet of my intestines taken out.I got better for about a whole year.But even during that time I had very dark days.I have had to deal since I was 18.I'm 41 almost 42.You do the math.If it hadn't been for me putting down my pride and saying I need help I may have hurt myself or some one else.I use it in conjuction to living a life based on the 12 steps.For way more than any substance I needed a way to learn to live with who I am.I am glad to be who I am today.And this makes me happy.
