A Ranting Vacation

01 August 2007
I would like to thank all of you who read my blog and especially those who comment. I love all of you, despite my lack of knowing some of you. I just wanted to tell everyone that I am going to be taking a break. I am perfectly fine, but I just do not have the time and effort to write posts.

Here is a little rant for y'all. I have only really been writing depressing posts because those are the ones I need to get out and off my chest. My life is mostly great and I love it a lot. There are just some hard times. One thing that really bothers me is when people comment or email that I should think about going on pills. Personally, I do not think pills will help me. Sure I have ups and downs, but it is a natural part of life. I am not depressed all the time! My counselor has told me that I am perfectly fine psychologically and that I am just a normal person. So please quit telling me that I need pills!

That is all. I am done for awhile and I hope that when I get back you will read my blog again.

Abelard- It will probably be a couple of weeks. I am really stressed out with school and I need to focus on that. The end of the term is coming up, so I'll have to see.

Drew- It was nothing. Thanks for coming and having a good time. Also thanks for helping last night. :)

Good luck with school. You've told me some of it, and I fully understand the blogholiday. :) Let me know if I can help you in anyway!

I fully understand your rant. Medication is not always the answer! It can help a lot of people, but only your doctor can tell you that you need it. I think you're fine.

I'm going to miss reading your posts for a while. I know you're uber-busy and don't have any time, so I totally approve of your decision. You need to get better and catch up with school stuff! Just remember to say 'hi' to me every now and then and keep me updated too =).

I'll look forward to your return. Work hard and stay focused on school. And take just a little time to smell the roses.

Sorry if I offended you about medication, but I don't understand your reaction. I just wanted to make sure you are taking care of yourself. I hope your reaction has nothing to do with looking down on people who use medication to deal with depression. I've seen too many people say they just need to pray and read the scriptures more in order to feel better. I don't know if you have clinical depression or not, but it's not something to treat lightly. It's a debilitating and potentially life threatening illness. I always suggest medication when I hear someone is depressed. I've been very close to a few family and friends who didn't seek help and have gone through much unnecessary pain and suffering. I am a huge advocate of mental illness and reducing the stigma surrounding it, so don't be too upset with me.

Dear, dear Gimple. Remember that there are many of us who are here for you. We truly are, however you may feel.
