Sallie, thank you so much for sharing your story. Depression runs in my family as well and it seems to be the one "secret" people are unwilling to share and even acknowledge. My young adult son struggles and it is encouraging to hear that women like you are willing to go the distance. Very inspiring -- thank you!

Linda, great question. "M" is for Mindfulness on my blog. That means staying in the moment, not catastrophizing about the past or the future. Knowing what is real and not having my brain WORRY about the "what if's, when will we tell when?, what if this doesn't work?" All those inner thoughts that jump onto your shoulder when you find yourself struggling to breathe. When that happens, I stand tall, take a deep breath and tell myself what is REAL, WHAT IS TRUE...and then I begin to ask myself what I need to do to nurture myself. What brings me a smile, what brings me laughter on the dark days while supporting him. Take whatever time you need to get the rest and energy to revitalize yourself. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, STAY IN THE PRESENT MOMENT!
Next week's post talks about what you need...stay tune.

Welcome, Sallie, as a Guest Blogger. I've been a member of the Spirited Woman International Blogger Team since March 2009. Good post! Could you explain the definition of M in Spirited Woman - Mindfulness to hold me still? Thanks.
