Still Breathing

It's been forever since I posted anything, and significantly longer since I brought you up to date on what's happening here.  I'm sorry.  My offline life is just as far behind!

I have been struggling--still--with depression.  The meds are still not right, although a second opinion confirmed what my doctor has been doing.  Next week I'll meet with my family doctor to talk over a few ideas that the second-opinion doctor suggested.

I've had follow-up visits with the medical oncologist and a surgeon.  By all indications, everything is fine.  Thank God!

I hope to write at least a couple of blog posts this week.  My list includes a review and two giveaway posts.  And I always think about writing for Faith Barista Jam on Thursdays, but I never have the topic, the time, and the creativity all at once.

We'll get there.  Just not today.


  1. Hope you are feeling better soon.

  2. It is good that you are still breathing.

    Will pray.

  3. Thanks for the update, Melissa. It's good to hear from you. Please blog when you can, but don't put pressure on yourself to do it. Praying for you and love you!

  4. Glad to see your update. Just write when the spirit moves you, Melissa. I'll be praying for you.

  5. I was recently tested for Vitamin D levels and mine came back really low. I think the depression is due to this at least for me. I've also read having your Vitamin B levels checked is a good idea. Another reason is I don't get enough sleep...ever. So I know medication can help, but there are some other ways to try to combat depression too and I'm hoping you find a good solution that fits!

  6. If you live in a wintery place, the grey days can contribute to the depression...Vitamin D is very helpful in that case. I just did find your blog, and I thought we've got a lot in common. This is one more thing. But God is faithful. You're brave for admitting your struggles. : )
