I probably should have warned you about my blog before I started throwing these posts up on my happy go lucky FB page. If anyone is bothered by the window into my soul, let me know. I can remove the link to FB and have people come over to the site to read these. I could put a link in my profile or something.
My goal with this blog is to get the things out of my head that I normally can’t talk about. Writing the words on these pages is far easier for me than talking with a person. There is something raw in talking about the inner workings of my depression. These confessions seem light and easy, but they do take a toll.
While this blog helps to relieve my inner struggle, it also makes me wonder if people are interacting with me less because of these insights. Am I scaring people? Should I stick to writing about horror movies instead?
I don’t know. I guess this journey will tell me in time. In the interim, please feel free to leave comments or send FB messages if you have feedback and/or thoughts. This journey will not be successful without support from my wonderful friends and family.

Hi Zander, it’s been a while, but I wanted to tell you I enjoy reading your blog and to tell you that I also have depression (major depressive disorder is the official diagnosis). I have been on meds for around 5 years now. Every day is an adventure, sleep either escapes or rules me. My doc and I actually discussed melatonin on Friday. She has recommended a 14 day cycle of 5mg about 2 hours before I go to bed. It’s supposed to correct your internal clock, we’ll see. Keep writing whatever you want/need to if it helps and don’t worry about what anyone else thinks. I will let you know how the melotonin thing goes.
Thank you. I think my official diagnosis is Moderate Severe Depression. I’m not at the top of the scale. I can’t imagine how hard that would be. I have just gotten to the point where I am embracing it and not hiding from it.
I think the best therapy is to let it all out, everyone have different ways of doing it. Keep on writing, all the best.
