I added an addendum — pasted below — to the ‘About’ page that I wanted to bring to your attention, dear readers.
Also, I’m working on a posting schedule for my social media projects (a sci-fi about teen depression – Senescence and a site focused on learning about social media – odawni.com) so you can expect new content here regularly. Stay tuned!
When I started this blog and composed the ‘About‘ text. I was still searching for a partner. Little did I know, a few months later I’d meet Kevin — my beautiful, patient and thoughtful Rennaissance man (seriously, his guitar skills are swoon-a-licious).
What I wrote still applies in terms of the purpose of this blog, but I decided that I would focus blog content on how my depression impacts my relationship with Kevin, including what we do to help us work through the times when my symptoms circle around again.
In relationships, conversations about depression absolutely need to happen – transparently and with oodles of compassion. Depression visits me (us) relatively regularly so this is something Kevin and I come up against a lot.
My wish is that what I share here about the relationship Kevin and I are nurturing together helps others to feel understood and hopeful that depression doesn’t need to drive a wedge between partners in a relationship. Depression can provide opportunities for partners to engage in deeper intimacy that strengthens and enriches relationships.
