Writing and depression

This is a topic not too many talk about. Yes. I am a writer ad yes, I suffer from depression and anxiety. Many of you have been wondering why you haven’t seen many post on my blog related to writing, well, just in thick of moving my psychiatrist decides to take me off meds and them goes on vacation. So I had to call my primary doctor and tell him I was crashing and what do I do. He put me back on my meds and now it is a matter of getting them back to a stable level to help me function well enough to get back to writing some 3,000 words a day. Right now, I am finding it hard to get out of bed every day and see the bright side of things. I have no doubt will get there it will just take some time to get the meds right. So bare with me as I get through this depression which just saps my creativity.

My best to all!

  1. ugh. What a revolting jolt. And to think, you’ probably be stuffing around with meds again when your psychiatrist comes back. Yuck! Hello to the Zombie feelings!
    How are you managing at work? Is your concentration doing okay? Can you reduce your hours if you need to?
    I usually need to take time off when I have a medication change!!!
    My horrified thoughts rest with you with all manner of empathy.


  2. It is nice to hear someone who has been taken off their meds and not been afraid to go back on them again… I am being slowly weaned off of my medication right now… but I don’t know if I will be strong enough to go back on them if I need to… I just want to be done with having to take medication all of the time… I want to be done with all of the side effects and in my brain it is like… ok you will be done with depression when you are off of your medications and still able to function normally…but I don’t know if that will ever happen… ok. Sorry for ranting to you and going on and on. It is just good for me to hear this. Thank you.
