I want to respond to a few concerns I have over my previous blog; What Now.
Firstly, I want to give a sincere and heartfelt THANK YOU to all who have replied on Facebook, via email and messaging, and in person. I very much appreciate your concern and words of encouragement.
I am doing well. The “bottom” was Christmas Eve. It took a while to get to a point of publishing the blog, but I did that now as a significant step forward. I am no longer on the “edge” I have made a lot of progress and have a completely different perspective. I still need to decide what I’m doing with my future, career, athletically, and where I’ll live, etc. but I’m exploring all the options.
Ironically, and unfortunately, the paradox of the depression I -and so many others face- is the deep insecurity and feeling of invalidation in revealing the difficulties one is confronting.
