I am thankful for my children who never give up on me!!!
I am thankful for my doctors who listen to me and keep me supplied with Ambien.
I am thankful for Prissy, she is my sunshine when skies are gray!!!
I am thankful for Pinterest. Why? I think it is the easiest way to type in a word and there are literally thousands of motivational, inspirational, and humorous things that instantaneously lift my spirits...
I am thankful for not having to work anymore!!!!!! This is what has ultimately changed my life the past couple years. I have simplified my life so I do not have to. I have worked ever since I was able to work. I went into the military when I was 18, spent the next twenty three years in law enforcement. I was tired, I was depressed, I was just not enjoying life or my family. Things had to change.
One day I will detail my fight with depression, hopefully sometime this month because September is suicide prevention month. The statistic that always sticks in my mind about this month is 22 Veterans will commit suicide today. Which is 8,030 U S Veterans a year. This is a problem.
I am thankful that my readers will not judge!!!!!
What are a few things you are thankful for today?
Were you aware of the staggering suicide rate for U S Veterans?
Have you or a family member ever suffered from depression?
