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!

Still well

Just a brief note tonight to let you all know I continue to be busy, and things continue to go well. My mood is good. I have to keep myself from wondering when the other shoe will drop, and just enjoy the ride. I'm working hard, 31 hours per week the past two weeks, and surviving. My puppy, Jet, is as hilarious as ever. He makes me laugh, as he plays by himself, racing, rolling, and jumping around with his toys in my house, as he is right now, or in the backyard. Our crappy weather has made running challenging, but I've been getting my miles in nonetheless. And I just returned from my new, twice weekly, strength training class. We had a tough workout tonight, and I loved it. I think I may be sore tomorrow, and that's okay. Life is good right now. Depression seems relatively distant. And I kind of like it that way.
