When you're in the throes of a deep, deep depression...
Because of that phenomenon, I missed a few clues that should have told me that I had more support than I thought I had. I think the problem was that I wasn't getting the support I needed from the sources upon which I had depended and counted. Because of that, I missed the support being offered from others who do care about me. I haven't been online much lately (I'll explain that later) but when I signed on today I saw that after I had made some comments on Facebook, quite a few people direct messaged me their phone numbers. Since I was seeking support from elsewhere, I didn't even notice, appreciate or acknowledge the support being offered to me. The simple act of sending me the their numbers was actually an offer of friendship, assistance and comfort. It may sound silly and selfish (perhaps it is) but those offerings totally went over my head.
To the people who sent me numbers, emailed me or otherwise made attempts to buttress my psyche, thank you. I'm sorry that I didn't call but, as I said, my perspective has been rather askew as of late. I'll be in touch soon. Right now I'm going to kick back for a bit then I'll be spilling my guts about something. I hope to be able to do it tonight but if not, I'll do it tomorrow. I have to be somewhere at 9 AM but if I don't get to it tonight, I'll make the next post a top priority because it is rather important.
