Rogue List: #45. Surprise Myself with my Own Strength

I have been struggling with depression for a while and seem to be FINALLY coming out of the woods. Over the past few months since I started taking and then slowly weaned myself off antidepressants I have felt the cloud that was over my life lift a bit and the sunshine, ah the glorious sunshine is beautiful. Although I feel like I got chewed up and spit out of something horribly unpleasant with every single bone in my body broken and battered I did learn something important; I never really knew how strong I was. Although my recovery took some time I can now say with confidence that I am much better and I credit this blog to be a large part of that recovery process. I have been toying for weeks weather or not I should use this as my #45 on my Rogue Life List and in the end I decided it was perfect. Although there were times, dark sad times when I thought I would not make it I know now that with the love and support of all of you I did. And for that I thank you.

I am so happy to be part of your life, even if it is via the blog. You definitely have taught me a lot about yourself and how inspiring you are to others, myself included! Even being unemployed, recovering from depression, you have filled you life with meaningful things that make you a more well rounded person. You are lucky to have experienced all this before children, not that your life will stop then, but you sort of will take a back burner for awhile! I definitely feel I have gained a sister as well! Thank you for exposing yourself!(haha)

I've had the same ongoing problem--its been over two years now, and although I have made lots of progress and have a different outlook on life, I'm still not out of the woods. I still have a "poor me" attitude which I think goes hand in hand with my weight gain. I have everything you could ever want, but I think because I'm still not happy with myself, I'm not 100% happy with everything I should cherish. The problem now is...go back and try new meds? Or figure something out on my own? I want to do it on my own, but I can tell you, the motivation to do so usually isn't there. Its so frustrating!
