It's Been a Long, Long Time
Yes, it's been a long, long time. I started blogging many years ago. It was virtually a daily ritual which I made time for regardless of what was happening in my life. But times change. A great deal of water under the bridge since those days. Time doesn't seem to allow these days, for the pleasure of blogging, interacting with followers and friends and I miss that. It's not that I have a mad social life. Most of my time is taken up with work as at pushing seventy six, I am working full time in a position whereby a great deal of thought and dedicaion is needed. I am not commplaining as I do love my job. One of the challenges is that working from home most of the time, one tends to work all hours leaving little time for other things that take time and dedication. My husband's death in 2016 and Covid 19 were the 'killers' that changed my life. At first I loved working from home but in 2020, completely out of the blue, I had a severe meltdown. Feelings of gloom, panic attacks, dark thoughts and tears. Eventaully I was diagnosed, as I suspected with depression and severe anxiety. Everything was an effort, including the job I loved but I managed somehow to plod on. What a disaster! Happily two years on, I have it under control most of the time. Not always, but most of the time. Prescribed medication certainly helps. So I have decided today that when my backlog of work has been completed, I will make time for blogging and interacting more with friends on social media the latter having become a victim of my state of mind. Here's to attempting to go back to something near what it was, and happier days. Take care out there!
