My daughter has depression and suffered from a pretty bad breakdown a few weeks ago. After some digging, we figured out it was a new medicine she tried that threw everything out of whack and caused her depression, which was in remission, to spike. The thing about depression, too, is that it was a slow slide, so it wasn’t obvious at first. But everything suffered, especially her schoolwork.
Thankfully, as noted before, my daughter has–along with a mom who pays attention–pretty amazing doctors who were able to help identify and rectify the situation. She has new meds, and she is on her way back to herself again.
For the Blogging from A to Z Challenge this year, my theme is gratitude. Every day, I am going to post about something I am grateful for. Tune in tomorrow to see what I pick for I.
