living with depression

Monthly Archives: January 2019

Today is supposed to be Blue Monday, the day when people are sad / depressed. It’s a new one on me and I don’t feel any more sad or depressed than any other day. I am stressed out which is to due to what we’ve been going through over the past two and a half years and doesn’t seem to be easing up.

The highlight for the New Year has been getting Sam who has been growing at a good rate. It’s funny watching him with Cassie and the kittens but as yet Jacob is still coming in at night and Grace gives him a wide berth.

I’m so tired all of the time no matter whether I have the right amount of sleep or not. It’s making my mood go up and down several times a day and I can’t be bothered doing anything.


Christmas was much better than I thought it would and enjoyed our meal out. It has been the third year running for us going to Tindale Crossing for our Christmas meal. I enjoy it more as I don’t have to spend half the day in the kitchen cooking then washing up afterward.

On New Year’s Eve we went to a friend’s home to see the new year in which was a novelty in itself. It was good to have a relaxing evening with friends apart from one smoking weed which set me off with a horrendous headache. It was about midday yesterday by the time I got rid of it. Rick spotted lurcher puppies on Gumtree so I sent a message enquiring about them.

Yesterday we went to see them and came home with one. Cassie came round with him fairly quickly and even lets him sleep with her on the bed
