It’s been a long time since I’ve kept a journal, so please forgive me if I ramble or abbreviate too much.
I’ve had depression since puberty, and it got much worse in college. After being diagnosed with PCOS (PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome), I started various medications and things improved. In the last 10 years, there have been many changes and many ups and downs. I was in therapy for a couple of years. Lately I’ve been feeling overwhelmed by everything, so I started therapy again. I’m going to be seeing a psychiatrist too, to get my meds in balance, which will hopefully make some difference. In the meantime, I’m exceptionally grateful to have a supportive husband who does everything he can to try to make the load lighter.
So I thought maybe writing my thoughts down could help me to make sense of what’s causing this episode, or help me to cope.
Let’s see how it goes.
