I'm Still Here

Last Update: June 29, 2020

Hello everyone. I haven't been very active lately but I am still here. I suffer from depression and have had a lot of changes in my life that has gotten me so down that all I want to do is sit, eat, and watch TV. However, I am pulling myself back up by my bootstraps and continue on. Today I have gone through and welcomed the new members that have followed me in the last few weeks. I appologize for being so slow. Also, I have to change my niche once again as I truly have a passion for cooking new things and sharing recipes with others. Please keep me in your prayers as I fight with my depression. I do not want medication as I have had side affects from it in the past and other medications cause weight gain. As I am already very over weight, I don't want on any of those medications. Keep me in your prayers as I deal with my depression and forgive me for not answering as soon as I should have.

Take care,

Charlotte

Hi Charlotte,

I am sorry that the depression has reared its ugly head and has tried to pull you under. I hope that your passion for cooking new things will help you have a focus that will fight the depression down.

I will keep you in my prayers. I am very familiar with depression and recently went through a bout with it. I was the victor this time! You will be, too!

Thank you Karin. I spent most of the day today working on a new recipe and had some friends try it out. It was a fried meat pie, like a fruit turnover only with meat. So far everyone likes it. My problem is not eating so much.lol

Take care,
Charlotte

Charlotte (Chacha)! I bet the fried meat pie was delicious. Not eating too much would be my problem, too! :)

Have a great week, friend!

Good afternoon Charlotte,

Realizing what the problem is will be the first step forward. When life shows up with some hard and difficult lesson, it is quite amazing what people are capable of doing.
You will be able to get out of this, I am sure. Chin up, and better times will come.

Greetings from the south of Spain,

Good to see you Charlotte, you are here so you are still moving forward. Best wishes.

Just being involved can be enough to help us all, and that is one of the cool things about WA. there is such a positive vibe here in the community we share with each other and grow by default.

Take care and stay healthy Charlotte.

Good to hear from you again Charlotte. Depression is a terrible thing. I call it the black hole. I find that getting plenty of sunshine and keeping my self busy helps. Another tip is to have a container of 1000mg Vitamin C tablets handy. When I'm really struggling I take one of these, it seems to help, but I'm aware that we are all different and could have different results to anything we try.
I hope you are able to cope and I wish you all the best. Jim
