The relief of seeing my daughter for a little of her birthday did take a big toll on me. It’s odd how something good can lead to an adverse reaction on a person. I wasn’t sure if I should write about that, but decided I would.
I’ve been writing about my mental health before it became trendy to do so. I’m glad I’m still on antidepressants, as I’m sure they prevent me from the most serious consequences of sadness. It’s definitely not like they make you really chirpy or anything, they just take the top off the tin and spoon away the top layer, that otherwise might suffocate you.
