What adventures? LOL...Well at least I caught your eye and you are here....Not much happening in my life these past few months...
I come and go out of my depression....some days are harder  than others...and others I am coping well.  On the hard  days seem like I  have no motivation at all...and I leave things...things  that  should be  done.  Things like...doctors appointments, social events, housecleaning and  every day contact with the people in my life. I try so hard not to be like that but I can’t help it...all I want to do is be left alone and it is hard to get someone to understand that. My good days are just that...not spectacular but good...I can manage to get things done...and most times I am happy and proud of the outcome. But there are more bad days than good...the trick is to reverse that so that the majority of my days are good.

I finally got my doctor to get me an mri! Today was my first...they did my right knee and tomorrow I have to go back for my left knee...I am not sure how long it takes for the results...hopefully not too long.

Steven is doing ok...He decided not to go and live with my mom and is still here...still has the behavior problems but I am coping with it...his mom wants him to come and live her in Scarborough...but I am 99.9% sure that he doesn’t want to. I am not sure how we are going to handle this as Melissa and I sometimes have a hard time talking...If I say black she says white...and if I say white she’ll say black...get my drift? So I know this topic is going to be a tough one to approach her with...I am not looking forward to it at all.

Melissa is doing fine in Scarborough...she is  pregnant and is due in October and I am excited...she found out that she will be having a boy...I am looking forward to meeting my new grandson.

Miranda is doing great...she is in college taking some courses...she also went to speaker school and completed that...on graduation she had to give a 5 minute speech and she did hers on discrimination...and she wowed the crowd...she had some crying...some shaking or nodding their heads and some hooting and hollering...finally she received a standing ovation....I was almost in tears...now she is being asked to speak at other places...wow!

I found out recently that my little 18 yr old second cousin had leukemia when she was a baby and it went into remission.  I am sad to say that it has returned and they have been doing chemo for the past week or so...they had  to quit that as she had some sort of infection....I just got word that she isn’t doing so well...so I am now on my way to the hospital to see her...

Please join me with prayers for both her and her family...thank you and will keep you up-dated on her condition.

    • To put it bluntly, depression sucks.  I deal with it all the time too. Some days are lots better than others.  It really helps me to get out and get some sunshine.  

      Glad you got the MRIs on your knees.  Hope they can figure something out to help you.

    • I haven’t had any great adventures either unless you count putting mulch in my front yard 1 shovel at a time an adventureohhhh

      I am not an expert on depression so excuse my ignorance but on the days you are having a hard time what does that mean?  Does reading positive and motivational things help on those days? Or no difference? I know that in some people depression is a chemical imbalance (right????) so what can really help with that?

    • Yes it is a chemical imbalance in the brain...I am on medication and have been for almost 2 yrs...they seem to help but I still have days where I am feeling very low...I do read a lot of self help books and also read my thoughts for meditation book every day...but sometimes that just isn’t enough...the only thing is to leave me be and I usually come out of it.

    • I am in an IOP class for depression and one of the things I learned is that sunshine actually stimulates the Pineal gland which in turn does something with serotonin and melatonin.  So chemically speaking sunshine really is good for you.  Just don’t forget the sunblock.

      No great adventures here either.  Karyn, I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
