It can be frustrating to say the least while having this 'invisible illness'. I call it invisible because it's different than someone who broke an arm or a leg or had an operation. I'm not walking around in a cast, on crutches, my arm isn't in a sling and I'm not recovering from surgery. Many people who are going through depression and or anxiety look like anyone and can be anyone. [Note: If anyone from the program is reading this no worries as I won't be sharing names or personal details of your situation in my blog posts. I will be talking in generalities.] Before I became ill I thought I had an idea of what it meant or what it would feel like to be 'depressed' - boy was I wrong! The people in the program I attended were from all ages and walks of life. Ages ranged anywhere from early 20's on up to the 70's. Occupations of the people in the program: therapists/social workers, teachers, business owners, executives, college students
I'm starting this weight loss blog a year after my weight loss journey began. I'm a stay at home mom and I'm in the process of losing weight only this time I'm keeping it off!! There's no going back!
