Well. Here we are. Just a few days away from 2018 – a new year. I know I’ve been MIA for a while… like a long while. For any regular readers, I apologize. But you know how it goes, right? Of course you do! Why else would you be a regular reader of a blog called Depression Ever After?

I won’t make any excuses. I wasn’t sick (well, I was a little bit). I wasn’t particularly depressed. I just wasn’t writing. It’s like how many of us, myself included, discontinue whatever we’re doing to make ourselves feel better, once we actually start to feel better. We think that we can stop taking our meds because we don’t need them anymore. We think we can stop seeing our therapist because we have nothing to “complain” about. But in reality, we feel like we don’t need them anymore BECAUSE they’re working! So why stop if it’s working?

I miss writing. I don’t even care if no one reads this (but thanks so much to those who do!) I just want to write again. So I will!
