Depression Marathon Blog

My photo
Diagnosed with depression 19 years ago, I lost the life I once knew, but in the process re-created a better me. I am alive and functional today because of my dog, my treatment team, my sobriety, and my willingness to re-create myself within the confines of this illness. I hate the illness, but I'm grateful for the person I've become and the opportunities I've seized because of it. I hope writing a depression blog will reduce stigma and improve the understanding and treatment of people with mental illness. All original content copyright to me: etta. Enjoy your visit!

quick note

Tired. Worked 12.5 hours today, and I've still got paperwork to do. But you know what? Except for missing my softball game tonight, I didn't mind. I like working in home health care so much that 12.5 hours doesn't feel like a long time. Especially since more than 2.5 of those hours came with driving to and from one patient. We cover 10 counties, and today I think I traveled to the furthest reaches of the furthest county we cover. So I'm tired. And it's way past my bed time. I'll catch you up tomorrow.
