Wait for the Storm to Pass

 

All I do is wait. When I am depressed, I wait for the storm to pass of my depression. When I am not depressed, I wait and anticipate the next episode or storm that I will experience of my depression. Oh, I am on an antidepressant and antianxiety medication. I take Paxil and Klonopin and usually they work well. But I experienced a major setback that caused a flare-up of my Fibromyalgia and Arthritis last week. I got depressed because my chronic pain was out of control.

I know that I can’t control everything, although sometimes I still try. I just get frustrated and angry that things spiral down when the storms hit and I throw a big old “pity party” lasting a few days. Then, I come to my senses. I start praying and God quiets my spirit and my pain and my depression is lifted and I return to my baseline self and the storm passes.

When I feel well, I’m quiet, serene, satisfied, and encouraging to others. I enjoy my blogging and reaching out to others when able and not having a flare of my pain. I enjoy my family, especially my grandchildren, ages 4 and 6, that I live with. And now with Spring here TN is beautiful.

Last week I waited for my depression to end and the storm to pass. This week I wait for the “next storm” and depression, but I know to focused on the NOW and pray daily. I need not WAIT but LIVE in the NOW. What is that saying we learned as children?…“RAIN, RAIN, GO AWAY. COME AGAIN ANOTHER DAY!”

The idea of Sunday Photo Fiction is to create a story / poem or something using around about 200 words with the photo as a guide. It doesn’t have to be centre stage in the story, I have seen some where the placement is so subtle, the writer states where it is.

Once you have written and posted your story, please add the link to the little froggy below so that it is added to the collection and we can all have a read.
