Depression Slump

I’ve been putting off blogging for the last few days. I was in a hole. I’ve got to admit, my depression had gotten the best of me. I ended up isolated for about a week and it wreaked havoc on my mental state. I often forget how important it is to get out of the house. It’s like I get stuck inside for a few days and the longer I stay in, the harder it is for me to get out.

During this “down” week, I’ve had lots of crazy dreams. I notice that they get weirder when I’m depressed. I was able to feel better over the weekend though. It helps that I can confide in my husband how I am feeling. Sometimes it’s hard to put into words, but he’s learned me over the last 6 years. I so appreciate his support.

I think part of the depression was due to stress. I had been overthinking my dentist appointment and just praying that we would be able to move onto the next step. I’m so thankful that the appointment was a success and my next one will be to check out my wax try ins! I’m almost at the end of this dental implant journey and it’s been a long time coming.

I think the implants and a few other things were just all wearing on me. The load got a little heavy. One day at a time.


  1. Sometimes we have down days and that’s okay. As long as we keep fighting. I’m so glad you’re getting closer to the end of your dental journey. And I really hope you feel better.

  2. Feeling depressed is drowning in exhaustion and sad feelings. I love to sleep through it, but getting in the sun and forcing a friend to take a walk with me to talk helps a bit. Thank you for sharing your struggle.

I want to hear what you think!
