Don't Panic ! Nothing earth shattering here.....

Yesterday was my 53rd trip around the sun as a functioning human entity.  I hope to make a few more trips before my expiration date however;  in the event that I misread that particular portion of my "owner's manual",  I would like to once again express my great appreciation to the Original Instructables Gang, and all those I have known over the last several years. I have grown VERY fond of many of you, I have learned a lot &  I hope I have taught something to someone (I like to give back for what I have gained).

I hope you ALL have a grand holiday season coming up, whether you celebrate Turkey Day,  X-mas,  the winter Solstice, Saturnalia, Hanukkah, Brumalia, Kwanza, Yule (added after being reminded by Lemonie), or  Dies Natalis Solis Invicti.

I got to be sick this year....whoopie !   Ah well, it was bound to happen eventually I guess, even though I so rarely become ill. *sigh*
Don't feel like the loan ranger! I had a serious fall last March and I am still very limited at what I can do. If it had not been for Instructables I am not sure how I could have stood it. I am a super active girl! I wish you good health very soon so you can enjoy everything you want to do.

I know what you mean.....when I first found this site, I was very depressed, and it really helped me re-focus
I am happy to hear Instructables helped you. I think it helps everyone here in one way or another. I can't afford to go out and spend a lot of money so this is my entertainment and online classes LOL to keep me active! I love it. Have a grand day! Sunshiine

Still I have to motivate myself day in and day out....clinical depression is one of my co-morbids.
Depression is really difficult to deal with. Many many years ago I had severe depression. It consumed me but I was too young to know what it was. Finally one day I made a choice to fight it as hard as I could. It was a hard battle to beat but I did it. I know it destroys the spirit , since then if I catch myself slipping even just a tiny bit , I think of something beautiful or watch a funny movie. It sounds crazy I know but it works for me. Many many people are depressed. I realize there are different kinds of depression so I just wanted you to know that I understand and wish you the best to enjoy life that is so beautiful and rewarding. I ask my son everytime he calls how is his day! His reply is always it is the best day I have had yet! Sunshiine

Thankfully mine is not severe enough to keep me from "living" (I go to work, I do what is necessary), but many times avoid things I want to do.
