Hiding in the House

I’m completing my graduate certificate online. In some ways, it’s great: I get less anxiety interacting with my peers and teachers, I create my own schedule (for the most part), and I don’t have to put on pants to go to school! Also, I don’t have to leave my house. This is both a pro and a con. It’s nice that I don’t have to leave the house if I don’t want to (Who among us hasn’t had days where they’ve gone “I don’t want to go anywhere today!”?), but I think being forced to leave the house has its good points too. If you have to go out to get to work, or school, or the gym, or something (anything), then you’re still out there in the world, perhaps getting some face-to-face interactions, seeing the sun, etc..

I don’t have to go out, so I don’t. (more…)


Psych Central’s Best of the Web + Welcome!

Yesterday, I received an email from WordPress informing me I had a new subscriber…and then another…and then another. I don’t normally get an influx of subscribers on days when I’ve not posted anything. I figured that someone must have linked to my blog. I was right: Psych Central’s blog did.

I’ve been placed on the list of Psych Central’s Best of the Web – Top Ten Depression Blogs of 2014! What an honour for such a little blog!

So, welcome all you newcomers! I’m glad you’re here ^_^

I’m glad all my veteran readers are here, too.

If you haven’t, check out the other blogs on the top ten list; I know I will be!

I’m hoping to get some new posts up soon. I’ve been a bit busy with school lately, and (who’da thunk it) rather depressed. Keep an eye out for my upcoming post on depression-imposed ‘house-arrest’ (I’m allowed to leave the house…I just don’t).
