Thank You

I felt that this was owed - no well deserved - to my faithful followers.

Many of you came when I was my witty self and were kind enough to follow me. Then my emotional crazy self came and reared it's ugly head. Because of this, I have a feeling that some of my followers have decided to just skip over my posts instead of doing the bloggy folly of un-follow - and that is fine, I don't blame you.


Some of you have stuck with me through this - and I really want to express my gratitude. Your comments and concern meant the world - and how sad is that??? But alas it is the truth. You my dear readers have fulfilled a missing part of my life. I crave for a way to express how I really am feeling and not be judged. Because I normally don't let people get close to me, my IRL friends are at minimal. You all are like going to a MOMS group or playdate, but fit into my hectic schedule a lot easier.


There are days that I think about securing my blog again - making it by invite only. Then I remembered why I opened it up. What I am going through is real life - not everyone has the picture perfect life they paint. If I am able to touch one person (why does that sound perverted?) and help them understand it is okay to be not perfect. If I am able to spread the word that depression happens - it is nothing to hide from. Then all this is worth it.


Thank you again to all my lovely followers - I really appreciate you sticking this out with me! Oh and you lurkers too.

XOXO

no.... Thank you! Thank you for opening up and sharing with us. Thank you from those of us who struggle along with you but haven't the energy, faith or strength to share our own stories.

***puts on Renee Zellweger Halloweenie mask*** "You had me at 'hello'." --You are not depression OR depressing. I like you and your blog and I'm not going anywhere! You're right, depression happens and can happen to anybody AND you don't have to hide behide the couch to appease. (<--- Shhh! Don't tell anyone, but that's Jesus' spot and a lot of people are "looking" for Him.) Being good to yourself is the best medicine, and when life seems ultimately crappy and you don't know what to do, do nothing, becasue that is okay too.

What a good friend we have in you!

Ditto. I like you and I'm not going anywhere, either. We are too much alike and it comforts me to know there is someone else there who's not all bright & cheery all the time. Someone else who has shitty days and vents them publicly. Because that is what your blog is for. Don't worry about the losers who unfollow, etc. (easier said than done, I know), b/c they are missing out!

I am here to stay. I freak out all the time. I think you (that's a collective you, not just you) have to blog because you like it, because it is fun, or because if fulfills something, not because of the followers, etc. Do it for yourself.

Don't worry about your readers! Take care of yourself and write what you want. If you can't let it all hang out on the internet, where can you???

Smooches!!
