In my last post I said that I had seen alot of bloggers doing this 30 Days of Truth. Bloggers will answer questions a day at a time or a on a day that they are able to get to the next question. I will let you know that I may not get to a question a day but I will do my best. I want to Thank Stephanie Thigpen who inspired me to do this with he answer to question number one. There were similar things in my life that related to her story. She has a great blog called Polos, Pearls, & Pacifiers. Her blog link is When you have a chance you should visit and say hello.

I'm going to answer question #1 tonight to start my 30 Days of Truth. I do want to let you all know that I believe in honesty. When I say something it's what I mean. No tall tails or lies because I would not like that to be told to me. Here we go

Day 1: Something you hate about yourself.

I have to agree with Stephanie that hate is a strong word. My Grandmother says that all the time. The one thing that I do not like about myself is my Mental Illness. Yes, I can actually say that I have this disease. This disease has made my life very hard to deal with. I suffer from Major Depression, Anxiety and Panic Attacks. I have had depression since the early 1990's then in the early 2000's is when I started getting panic attacks and having the anxiety. I can honestly say that during those years alot of bad things kept happening in my life. If it wasn't one thing it was another. I won't bore you with the details because I could probably sit here and write you a book.

I don't like this disease because it can make you so depressed that you sleep for days, cry at almost anything and miss alot of family events. My family is the most important to me and I get more depressed when I can't even leave my home to go somewhere with my children. My children know all about it and have been the best with accepting it. My husband makes sure that I take all my medicines so I can be as normal as can be. When I am doing good I make sure that I spend every moment with my kids, husband and grandson.

So there is what I dislike about me. I'm not ashamed to say that I have this disease. The only thing that I would like for people to know is that I'm not contagious and I'm a normal person besides my mental disease. I have lost friends and snubbed by some people that I have worked with in the past. I want people to know and like me for me.

Thanks for reading!!

Thank you for your honesty. I understand what you are going through. I know what it's like for people to say things like, "I'm too busy to be depressed". But you explained it very well and are right about it being a disease and not a choice!
