About 4 weeks ago I started a depressive episode of Bipolar 2. I sank slowly down into a reminder of what my life used to be like most of the time. These days I go long periods without lapsing into hypomania or depression. Using all my tools in this journey through this depression, I was able to stay in contact with my friend from my self-defense classes. I sent her texts and she messaged me back. That was an important aspect of this trip through the blues. Staying in contact with friends. I was able to lessen the depression.
I tell people all the time that it’s okay to rest. I practice what I preach. I have worked hard in making these trips through depression something that I use to grow and change. I know how to do this. Through trial and error and study I have learned what works for me and what doesn’t. I know what works for most people and what does not. Through my work, I get to teach others what I have learned.
I am slowly coming out of the depression cycle. Yippee! I went to my first self-defense class after being out for a month. It was hard and I did it. You can too! If you are dealing with depression and need assistance in your journey. I can help. You won’t get therapy from me. Hopefully, you are already doing that. I can help you make the journey easier. I can be that person you stay in contact with through your process of depression. You don’t have to do it alone. I know how it is and I can help.
We will have a free, session to see if we connect. We can discuss what you want and what you want to change and what you want to stay the same. You will set goals or behaviors you want to achieve, and I will help you. You are not alone in this. You don’t have to walk the journey alone.
