2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here's an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 3,700 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all my readers, new and old.

I got out of the hospital on Saturday am trying to figure it out.  It was a good hospital stay, things are so structured there.  I am now at home recuperating.  Mental illness sucks!  I am thinking of sharing my disorder at my work.  I work in the mental health field so there is definite fear of stigma but I feel like no longer hiding behind this blog and being free.  My family disagrees with this decision.  Any thoughts on this is appreciated.    I would love to hear stories of others who have made this big jump of faith into the unknown.

I don’t feel ready to work again and have 2 weeks off so that is good.

Here is to a better 2015!





Dear readers,

Thank you for being patient with me while I took a needed break from blogging.  I just got out of the hospital today after severe depression set in with suicidal ideation.  Medication and excercise have been key to my recovery along with prayer and awesome doctors!  I am also thinking about “coming out” at my workplace with my diagnosis.  I have heard this can be exhilarating!  But we shall not make any hasty decisions in this regard.  Well, it has been a long but good day.  I wish you all the very best.  This disorder can kick one in the ass.  I will write more soon about my hospital experience.

Happy to be home with family for the holidays!
