I’m sorry that I haven’t written for a while. I have been transitioning to a new stage in my life, retirement! The combination of a long, hectic drive to work and a difficult job was getting to me. This stress was causing me to be tired all of the time. And when I become overly tired, my depression starts coming back, even though I take medication for it everyday.
It was time to let go of a job I liked, co-workers that I loved, and a thirty year career. It was very difficult, but I am feeling better physically and mentally, which was the point in retiring. I can now care for my elderly father, help my husband, and fix up our home and yard.
Ask God to show you if something in your life is causing you to be depressed. Maybe it’s time for a change!
“Cast all your anxiety upon him, because he cares for you.” 1Peter5:7 (NIV)
