Happy Monday y’all!
Depression is an awful feeling that is something that can hit any of us at any time. I believe it is one of the worse feelings in the world. However, when I've been depressed, as well I know with other Fibromyalgia and chronic pain suffers, I feel it can be worse for us personally. Please let me explain my reasoning for this. When you are depressed, you feel very low, are in the dark, and possibly suicidal place. Now add the fact you have constant pain all over your body. September is #NationalSuicidePreventionMonth,#WorldSuicidePreventionDay ##PainAwarenessMonth #September2021PainAwarenessMonth, and #NationalPainAwarenessMonth. Depression is a very lonely thing. If you are depressed, I urge you to get help. If you google depression on google, it takes to you depression and it was sent people. 1-800-662-HELP (4357)
I used to get extremely depressed from my pain levels. My depression has been the main cause of it. Around this time of year, it's not unusual for me to see something in a store, or hear a Christmas song they loved, and it takes me back to those days when I was little. I am very fortunate that I have a wonderful support system of my husband and girl best friends. If anyone is dealing with depression, I understand how you feel. I urge you please to seek help or call a friend.
Six years ago, my mother as well as my grandmother passed away. I was so very close to the both of them. This fall, a very dear friend of mine will have been gone two years. He was the "big brother." I never had. He was one of the sweetest, kindest guys you'd ever meet. He was the type of person that made the world better by being in it. Thinking back on my childhood days, there’s not many moments that do not have a memory with him in it. I will always associate the rock band Jon Bon Jovi (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkBwnm7GOfYHsacwUjriC-w)
with him. As a tribute to my "big brother", I’m posting a video of "Livin' on a Prayer". I know that he’s smiling and will always watch over his friends and family. I rely a lot of my faith to get me through all the tough times. I have been known to been known to be very sensitive. Maybe this is a gift from my Fibromyalgia? The song that I've chosen for my friend, works to say farewell to my family too.
