Pan o Palo

Well, I came home from the hospital today. Obviously I’m not cured, but I’ve gotten another springboard to leap from.

I would like to sincerely thank you for your kind thoughts and comments. I realize that I may be departing a bit too much information about my personal life, but I don’t go about the internet as a character or alter-ego (anymore). And, as always, you are free to ignore me if this makes you feel uncomfortable or what-not.

Yes, I’m dealing with severe depression. Yes, I had ideations of suicide. Yes, I’m not close to being fully recovered. Yes, I needed to be in the hospital’s psych ward the past three days. What ever it is that’s making me depressed, I’m working on fixing (or at least abating).

I just ask one thing of you: patience. Patience that I will make the correct decisions; seek out the appropriate treatments; express healthy concerns. And if I use this blog as one platform to do that, so be it. Also, please remember that mental illness takes on many, many forms and manifestations. I’m trying not to be fearful to call out that stigma, and I hope that you are all intelligent enough to do the same.

Just keep in mind that I’m trying, and will continue to do so. You’re more than welcome to comment or advise. Just keep it clean for the kids. ; )
