CP and depression in your 30s

So the 30s have hit and you’re feeling low again:




So looking at what you have and the thought of why you. And the feeling of being a burden is another problem because you are not able to do things that the people who you live with can. 


Remember that these are also issues that occurred when you were a child, teen and in your 20s 



Ok, the feeling is there again!





This is when you are going through another bout of depression because of the feelings. But you are not alone. There are lots of people who are in the same box.


What to do?


Ok so the feelings are there and you've been given all the cues to get the help in your 20s. Now is the time to use them again. 


If on the other hand, you're reading this post then it's ok. I've been through the same things and didn't know anything until I was in my 30s 



What I did!


It was at this age I finally started getting the help I needed.


I was diagnosed with clinical depression at this point. So I was put on medication. I also went through a course of counselling. For a long time, I managed to be content enough and came off the medication. 



When my family grew and my children were eventually off to school I noticed that my body has started to get a bit more worn. Slowly I also noticed that I was getting more and more tired. However, I ignored all the warning signs and carried on and let life take over.


In that sense, I should not have left myself got at this point but I did. For some of the stuff I was dealing with I got healing thanks to the counselling but there were things I was dealing with and didn’t know.


If you have those sorts of feelings realise that everyone has these and it doesn’t matter if you have a disability or not.


Last words


My thoughts are if you have not got the help you need then push for it but if you have it then use it. There are so many apps as well that can help you. But not everyone is the same so it is best to search on your phone and try as many as possible till you find the ones that work for you.
