Hello....anybody still there....?:) I'm slowly getting back to normal life, step by step...have to explain you a lot of things though But I won't do it today...only in short - nothing deadly serious, no...I've just been in a very bad shape...mentally...the psychologist called it a 'deep depression':) That's it. Other than that we're all fine, the kids are growing (too fast, especially the little man - Brooke!:)) And, actually, they're gonna get a little brother soon:) I'm glad I finally got the courage to post here, really! That's a big step forward for me. So I'll tell you the details some other day, ok? And I'm really sorry that I've left you without a note of any kind, I completely closed myself out of the digiworld, have not even come to this blog for months...let alone my email....but I'm getting better, as you can see:) Hope you forgive me...love you all!

Sure I can understand you. My sister has depression too. And sometimes some things happen in our lives and we can't understand it. I was worried about you. I am happy you come back. I wish I can see again soon.

Lucy,

I think it's a good thing that you were able to confide in us. I'm sorry you've been experiencing a difficult time! It wonderful to have you back! You just take it one day at a time and try and keep your chin up! I'll be lifting you up in prayer. You're not alone!

Hi Lucie,

You don't know me, but I'm a BIG fan of your designs. I can also TOTALLY relate to depression. It's a nasty bugger that can sneak back up on you. I've gone through 2 post partum depresssions and I'm in the middle of crawling out of my third - in 24 years - major depressive disorder.

Sounds like you're pulling through the other side, and for that I'm glad. I've missed reading your blog updates, collecting your amazing freebies, and daydreaming about the designs in your shop.

I applaud this step you've taken and look forward to seeing more of you in the digi-verse. And congratulations on the impending arrival of your new son!

Peace.

HI THERE!! I am jumping up and down over here. I am SOOOO HAPPY to hear from you. ((((HUG)))) that is what I would do if you were standing next to me! I have missed you so much!

I to understand about depression, while I have never experianced Deep depression, what I went thru was bad enough so I know you have been thru the dark and are now seeing some light!

CONGRATULATIONS on the new little brother for Mr Man and Little Missy!

Remember there is nothing to forgive, you are working toward the light and happy times! I am very thankful to have you back!

Hi, i'm happy your back, it's been so long.

Take care and take it one day at a time.

You're multi-talented and you've just gotta keep putting some energy into YOU and your getting better whatever that includes. We all tend to let ourselves be last in everything we do - but think of yourself and how being in a good space is good for everyone. Hope that doesn't sound too preachy - it isn't meant to. But I feel for you - sincerely. And I adore your work. You make the best ribbon wraps ever. Love your LO's, designs, etc. Hang in there! xo

Welcome back - lovely to see you again.

I had post-natal (post partum) depression about 3 years ago - so hugs and prayers. Actually just blogged about a book about PND and anxiety written by a friend.

Congrats on your pregnancy.

Take it easy on yourself, put yourself first, no pressure, we are just delighted to see you around :)

I'm still here, too... SO sorry to hear about your struggles lately. I know I've been there before where I just don't want to be around anyone... and my depression is more manic... Highs... and Lows at times... never in one place too long... but I thank GOD that the last 10 years I have way more Highs for long periods of time. I've never taken meds for it... Tried to manage it with Dietary means... but my sisters both had to have meds... I think it's genetic for us...

Will keep you in my prayers. I had emailed you once back a couple months and was a tad concerned when I didn't hear from you or see you around on any of the boards or here but just figured life must've gotten away with you. I will be thinking of you... please let me know if there's ever anything I can do to help.

Congratulations on your pregnancy. I hope things are well... when you feel like it post us on the details... Due date, etc... lol

Blessings!
Shawna

Hi Lucie!!!
I'm soo glad to hear from you finally.. I'm sorry for you depression, but I'm glad you're able to write again. I really missed your warm posts, wonderful LO telling stories, showing emotions. I hope to hear from you very, very soon.
Congratulations for a new baby!!! We'll also have a second child :)

TifLyn said...

Oh, Lucy. So sorry to hear about your depression. I can so relate. I have struggled for years with what's probably called a "mild" depression. Doesn't always feel so mild to me... Life goes on, but sometimes I wish it didn't - ya know? Well, not like seriously, but at least not as this life...
I have struggle with talking about it for years as well. Which slowed any hope of treatment. Now I am taking a new medication - and this one I think helps. Every few years I've tried a new med, but ended up stopping after a few months when it doesn't seem to help...
It's sad really that it makes you feel ashamed to have depression. I wonder why that happens? It is a medical condition, wonder what the stigma is about? I am slowly getting to the point of acceptance. But today is a good day. There are blah days, and there are bad days too... Ugg!
Anyways, wasn't trying to write a book! But it's so important to share our feelings!
I sooooo love your designs. I have missed your blog. I admit I don't visit favorite blogs often enough, but I have been sad when I do stop by and saw no responses... Happy to have you back!
Hope you take care of yourself -even moreso with a little one coming! How blessed! Can't wait to hear more from you!
Hugs, Tif

There is nothing to forgive!!! We have of course missed you but totally understand. Life has a funny way of making you stop and reevaluate things. But have faith in the good Lord and follow where he leads you. You just take care of you and your family!! BettyJoR

Ahoj Lucko,
hned jak jsem dneska videla Tve LO ve standouts na DTS, musela jsem se jit kouknout k Tobe do galerie - mrknout jak Eneko a Amaia rostou a na blog :-). Je mi lito, ze jsi mela takove porblemy, ale jsem rada, ze jsi z nejhorsiho venku - ted uz bude i hezke pocasi ;) . Kdyby jsi neco potrebovala, staci napsat ;) . Gratuluju k miminku a preju cele rodine hodne zdravi a pohodu. Obcas zase juknu, papa.

Hi Sweet Lucie... I've been trying to comment to ya, but for the life of me cannot remember my password... anyways, I want to let you know that you are not alone in depression and that this too shall pass... you are fine, just going through a season of mourning - one of God's Beattitudes... just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you and I'm actually coming out on the other side of the same black tunnel... so I want to send this smile to you... hugs, Pattyanne
(and yes, I still cannot remember my password to show my identity! LOL)... hugs, hugs, hugs
