This last week has been a bit rough.
The mother of a friend of mine died. It was expected, she has been ill for a long time, but I know my friend will be sad and I feel for her.
And then the 17 year old niece of a dear friend (she was also the granddaughter of another old friend) died suddenly of a brain aneurysm. Such a tragedy when a young life is cut off so unexpectedly like this, and such a shock for all the family.
Throughout most of my adult life I have suffered from bouts of clinical depression and this week what has been building slowly over the last several months finally tipped the scales again. So I am now back on meds, after being nearly two years without them. I detest taking drugs, but I know they help so I take them.
We have had quite a few warm humid sticky days lately, but this coming week is meant to be dry and mostly sunny. I am looking forward to them.
