What Gets Me Through

It's been a while since I last spoke about my mental health, but I'm going to, today.

I've had a bit of a dip, this week. There's been a lot of not being able to get out of bed, and A LOT of tears. I've hidden away a fair bit, as the only person that doesn't ask 
'what's wrong' 
is Mr. Ojo. 

He's been with me long enough to understand that there isn't anything wrong, it just IS.

2 groups of my friends were out tonight, but I simply couldn't talk myself into going, I hid instead. It's easier.

Online I can hide away. I don't have to wear a mask, I just type jolly.

I'm hoping the dip won't last long, and finding things to get out of bed for has helped

For Example:

Yesterday Mr. Ojo suggested getting my sewing machine out. I hadn't made it out of bed until gone 1pm, I couldn't face it. I listened to him, and spent the rest of the afternoon/evening, sewing. It sounds simple doesn't it?

After that, last night, the flood gates truly opened. I cried, and cried, until hubby fell asleep holding me, but that helps! I woke feeling better today, so the sewing machine came back out.

I also did the other thing that gets me through:


Tonight, I don't feel like crying. Actually I feel quite calm, I'm not regretting not going out, as I worry I would have brought others down. I'm definitely feeling better than I did at the beginning of the week though.

What gets you through the dips?
Do you suffer with depression?

I'm always here to listen, if needed.


  1. Jo sending you massive hugs. I'm not sure what gets me through my lulls and lows. Sometimes I think i just ride the storm solo until it calms. I can't pin point anything. Sending you much love from someone who totally understands xxxx


I do love comments and read them all, please be nice and tboughful to others x
