In a recent post on this blog/website, I talked a bit about my suspected depression. On Wednesday of last week I had the mentioned appointment with the family doctor. As expected, I came out of it with a diagnosis of depression. Not that I needed a doctor to tell me, but he officially diagnosed me with migraines, and allergies, too. I’m now on prescription medication for all three. It’s helping with the depression and the allergies. The migraines? Not so much yet. Still, I’m trying hard to get myself through this for my family, myself, and all of you – my fans and readers.

Can some good come of this? Hopefully. If possible, I’d like use my status as a bestselling, award-winning author to help bring attention to depression. People who have never suffered from it (and you’re lucky if you haven’t!) don’t know what it’s like. It’s not something you just cheer up from, or get over. It’s not a funk over something in your day that put you in a bad mood. It’s a disease. It’s a chemical imbalance in the brain. It’s a serious matter.

If there are any depression awareness, or depression treatment groups out there reading this that would be willing to have an award-winning, bestselling author working with them to bring awareness to the issue of depression, please let me know. I want to hear from you. The best way of getting in touch with me is through the “Contact” page of my website.
