I’m attending a weekend retreat to hopefully help me start to get past this depression and anxiety that has plagued me for 18 months. This is the first time I’ve been out of the house for more than a couple hours in almost 10 months. and the number of times I’ve been out of the house in that time is less than 20 – approximately 98% of which have been for medical or therapy appointments. I’m exhausted from the anxiety, but taking a moment to be appreciative of the strength to do this.
