First off, I want to apologize for my lack of reviews and giveaways and for not telling you this sooner.  Normally I post a lot more and I want to let you all know why there haven't been quite as many as usual.  I have been going through a rough time right now and for some reason blogging has become a bit difficult for me.  As some of you may know, I suffer from depression and blogging used to be the best medicine for me.  Lately though, it's become really hard.  I have decided to let you all in on my secret even though this is probably one of the hardest things I have ever done because I see it as a sign of weakness and to share it, well, it's just really hard.  After some soul searching, I discovered a few things.

#1 - Blogging means the world to me

I think that in the back of my mind I do things so that I won't be happy because I don't feel that I deserve happiness. 

#2 - I need to stop being so closed off

Blogging could be the perfect therapy.  I'm sure some of you are struggling with depression and one of the most important things you need to know is that you are not alone.

So, I'm making a New Year's Resolution, better late than never, and I am going to try to be more open with you all about myself. 

Thank you for understanding and I really do appreciate each and every one of you.

  1. I feel for you. I suffer from depression as well. Let blogging become your outlet. It could change you.

  2. As another one who suffers from depression time to time, I feel your pain! Hang in there. This time of year can be tough.
    Blessings -

  3. Thank you so much for posting this, Bridget. I hear you and I empathize. You are very courageous for opening up about your personal struggles; I deeply respect your decision and ability to do so.

    Keep reaching out, hang in there and try not to be too hard on yourself. I know it's not an easy feat sometimes, but I wish you all the best. :)

  4. Hi Bridget, I also left comment on readaholic. I have suffered from depression for over 40 yrs. I have found if I think positive, have happy thoughts and just get outside for 10-15 mins a day that it does help me. Put on some great music and sing along, do a little dance and this does help. I have more depression in the winter and do dislike very cold, wet weather.
    We are all behind you and anytime you need to talk we are here.
