We are having an "Austerity Christmas" this year, and part of our money saving efforts is to make some of the Christmas presents we are giving. I have all the ideas and supplies I need to make the gifts, and am crafting my fingers to the bone trying to get them completed in time, and I'm not sure if I'm going to make it!!
I am way behind due to my bright idea last month of stopping taking my antidepressants!! I ran out over a weekend, and then kept forgetting to ring for a repeat prescription. I found I was feeling fine at first, a lot less "flat" emotionally, but gradually the depression started to take hold again. It was such a gradual slide, that I didn't even realise at first, and thought I was doing good! Once I started to take notice of how I was feeling I made sure I got my tablets and restarted them. I started to feel better straight away, apart from the incredible tiredness that always hits me when I feel depressed, that is taking longer to go away.
I wish I had been sensible and carried on taking my medication properly, as I'd be much further ahead with my crafting, isn't hindsight a wonderful thing!?! So I am going to try and make the best of it, and probably have a few weeks of late nights and, fingers crossed, I'll get there in the end.
