I talk about my depression a lot on social media, mostly because I’m trying to de-stigmatize mental health problems. I’m currently on several prescription drugs that are working very, very well for me, and the fact that my partner is amazing helps immensely. Sometimes, however, you have a breakthrough regardless of the drugs, and that shit sucks ass. I have three maintenance medications and two acute medications, and they work wonders when a breakthrough happens.
I love my life, now. I think that this is where I belong, no matter if I miss this house or that house, this area or that area. I’m living in the middle of nowhere, and I love the peace. My mind loves the peace. Even when I have to go into town, there’s virtually no traffic! I grew up in a small town, and now I’m living outside a small town. I guess it’s true – you can take the girl out of the small town, but you can’t take the small town out of the girl.
I hope everyone’s 2021 is going so much better than 2020 did. Be safe, be respectful, love each other, and most importantly love yourself.
