I'm still here

I'm still here. I never thought I would be away for almost four months and I apologize.

I have a lot to write about, if I can find the words. Suffice it to say it was the worst depression I've ever had, though I've said that about most of the depressions I have had lately. This one started in August and continued to get worse and I did not want to burden Anyone by how bad it was getting.

Then one night the cat knocked the laptop over and broke it. I have not replaced it; I am torn between getting another MacBook or a iMac. Right now I am on an iPad.

I just haven't been on the computer as I said I pretty much just stayed in bed. I have a lot of work to do on the blog, I've lost hyper links and its difficult to blog or update Facebook on the iPad.

The latest blow was three weeks ago when I found out not only does kitty have thyroid problems but also some kidney ones. For now she's happy and healthy but she's on a special diet and gets shots from the vet.

Please bear with me I just need to figure out how much to say and how to use the iPad.

It's good to hear from you again!

My Siamese wanted to share his favorite video (cat band and car chase...can't go wrong there!) with your kitty:

I'm sorry you're going through such a hard time. I hope you are able to start blogging frequently again soon. I've missed your writing.

Just found your blog while looking for personal accounts of other people who are struggling with PTSD, anxiety, depression, etc. Haven't had time (sigh - or energy) to read much, but I'm a cat person, too, and am sorry that your kitty is having thyroid/kidney issues. Have had a lot of experience with both of those. This site has loads of well-researched info and advice:
Its focus is primarily kidney disease, but there is info on other conditions including hyperthyroidism. When I have more energy/fewer mountains to climb, I'll stop in and read some more. Hope things begin to get better for you.

Hi, just came across your blog. Sorry to hear you went through such an awful time. You are not alone! :)

You know what? I just came across your blog and what got my attention right away was your title "If You're Going Through Hell Keep Going" These words are powerful. I have not even read your story yet but wanted to drop this line right away. I too am going through difficult time in my life but wanted to thank you for your inspiring title no matter how Depressed I can be I will keep on going :) Best of luck to you.

Sending many good thoughts out to you and Holly.
