Depression and Anxiety Along with Aging

It’s been hard. Being someone who struggles with depression and anxiety can be debilitating, but I try my best to be positive about most things.

It seems like as I get older, I’m more afraid. It’s like every little ache or pain scares me into thinking something may be wrong. I do have health issues and they are currently under control, but this aging thing sucks!

It’s hard when you start realizing you can’t do some of the things you’re used to doing. Now, I have to find new ways to get things done and I’m not gonna lie, that’s not a good feeling.

I realize things could be much worse and I am truly blessed for my health to be what it is. With retirement in 2019 and the changes taking place in my body, I feel out of control sometimes. I need to feel in control of my health again. It’s like when you age, it’s out of your hands and that’s scary for me.

If you’re a Christian reading this, please pray for me that I’ll have the strength to get my health under control and feel better. I can’t let depression and anxiety scare me away from aging with grace.

I have all of the tools I need. Now I just need the strength to use them.

I so appreciate everyone who stops by to read my blog. I don’t know why you do it but I love you for it! 😊
