Depression Caused by Loss of A Loved One ― Namely, MLM…
This is an impromptu post—I haven’t written in so long that I feel a little guilty. Well, not really. But whatever, I wanted to share some silliness in case it helps boost your mood.
I started doing Snapchat for My Sister (and myself) after My Little Mom “transitioned”—she died, folks, there’s no sugar-coating it—last fall. My Sister and I were both so grief-stricken that we were fighting over who would jump first from the second story window.
That’s not true, either. We didn’t discuss our depression. We were too depressed to do such a thing.
And, as mentioned in another blog, we knew that from only two floors up we’d likely only break an arm. And though My Sister doesn’t eat when she’s down, I do, and since I couldn’t guarantee I’d break my non-dominant arm, the risk of limiting food consumption was too great. Plus, I’d have had to get out of bed to go to the window.
Eventually, I put the sheets and suicidal thoughts away and went back to Vancouver.
But I was worried about My Sister, and frankly, I still needed a mood booster, too, so …
I put the snacks away and took up SnapchatⓇ!
Here’s a short compilation of my early “works.” If you want more, let me know.
My Little Mom left us almost a year ago. I write to her almost every day in my journal. That’s the baggage some guy is gonna eventually have to put up with. But at least he’ll know my love is loyal and undying. (If he feeds me.)
How I Cured Depression Caused by the Loss of a Loved One—Snapchat!
p.s. Let me know if you want me to “title” these Snaps, like an artist might name a painting and such.
