This Will Be a Short Post Because I’m Depressed

My brother should have heard the flat tone in my voice this previous week as a result of he invited me as much as his home for a pancake brunch yesterday morning (Sunday). It was good to see him and my sister-in-law and he’s a better cook than I’m. By far.

I had a Zoom session with my psychiatrist, Dr. Lev, on Monday and admitted to her I was struggling. I informed her I purchased a lightweight remedy field, and in the identical breath, I stated I guess it didn’t work as a result of I don’t have seasonal affective disorder. She didn’t wish to raise the dosage of any of my present antidepressants, so she began me on a micro-dose of a thyroid remedy as an adjunct to the antidepressant. First I’ve heard of this, however I believe her implicitly. I’ve to take it on an empty stomach, so I often take it at about 2 or 3 a.m., after I first stand up, so I can have my coffee. I’ve been combating insomnia for close to 2 years. I don’t even attempt to return to sleep anymore.

Every month I meet with different women from the entrepreneur program I was part of in 2018, before I had my stroke. Right now, we’re meeting over Zoom. We assist one another in our respective companies, give one another suggestions and customarily have time. I look forward to getting along with these girls who’ve become my pals. I knew I used to be in bother this previous Saturday after I couldn’t look forward to the meeting to end so I could burrow again below the covers.

To add to the powerful time I used to be going via, I obtained a warning from my supervisor at work concerning my efficiency. I’m not meeting my numbers, however I do know for a fact that neither are my co-workers. I haven’t met my numbers since I began working full-time since getting back from my stroke so I don’t actually know why he’s selecting this month specifically to subject this warning. Part of the explanation, he cites, is the time I take off to attend my medical appointments. I wish to ask him how I’m supposed to decide on between my well being – which admittedly the second half of this 12 months has been a wrestle – and my job? I don’t even wish to know his reply.

The fact is, usually after I begin to feel depressed, I feel concerned because I understand how quickly things can go downhill. I imagine that’s why Dr. Lev prescribed the remedy. Right now, I just feel depressed and flat. That is frightening.

    A 20:00-06:00 curfew has been announced in Miami Beach and will remain in effect for at least 72 hours.
    Traffic restrictions are in place during the curfew, while businesses in the busy South Beach area must close.
    Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber said thousands of tourists had brought “chaos and disorder” to the city.
