I hope everyone has done well through the holidays.  I know personally, I have been dealing with a lot of depression over a number of things.  

I'm sorry I haven't been on in so long.  I just kind of fell away for some reason, I can't really explain it.  So now I'm working my way back.  I have missed so many of you, and hope all is well.

I've found meditation to be very helpful.  Of course have never been consistent.  If you can get yourself into doing it consistently, it can be very beneficial.

I think it's best to do something to get your mind off it. Don't just sit around and think about it. I had started getting angry after having seizures which would put me in a bad mood. I realized I needed to do something to change my state of mind. I would listen to music after having a seizure. Music is therapy for me. It changes my state of mind and puts me in a much better mood. I love music.

Today is my first GM in around 5-7 months. Was a bad one but for me and my seizures lately is a long time. Feeling good otherwise.
