Hello everyone,

Thank you so much to those of you who sent me emails checking up on me to see where I have been. I am not sure why it started but I became severely depressed and had to go back on medication. My blood sugar levels have been really good and so has my blood pressure is fine so I am really confused about what brought this on. Anyone way I am back on here now and starting to feel better about myself.

Hi Gaye, I haven't met you but I've been to those dark places too. I think as a diabetic we are more prone to it than most folks, not sure why. I'm glad you found your way back to DC. It's a good place. I find great comfort here. Hugs coming your way!

That's GREAT Gaye! I have intimate knowledge of those dark places in me, and I know it is no fun! Glad you're back and feeling better about yourself!

My prayers are with you!

Gaye, want you to know that my heart is leaping for joy! I know about those roads that you travel. You don't know where you are going or how you got started. May you be Blessed each and every day. Jim

Having been down that alley I know how tough it is. I know the frustration of checking on yourself, "I am doing okay physically; I am doing okay mentally, I am doing okay emotionally, life is going fairly well at home, work, church…So why am I depressed? I have no reason to be depressed. Of course knowing that you may have no reason to be depressed, does not change the fact, it is just another tool to beat yourself up with! A very trying time, I know. It delights me to the core of my being to know you are on your way back. My daughter, Suz, gave birth yesterday to a half grown baby boy, at 10 1/2 pounds and 22 inches! She is hurting, but doing very well, as is Nathan Christopher. Of course, Pop-Pop is ecstatic!
