One of the symptoms of depression is a lack of interest. I didn't think I ever lacked interest. I am very curious. I fell under the category of engineer because I do like pulling things apart and seeing how they work. I also like fixing broken things. I love teaching people how to use their computer. I am interested in so many things. Well, the dark blanket of depression has slowly lifted over the years. This month I renewed my interest in crocheting, planted a garden, teaching someone computers, learning to cook....yup, I've done more in a month than I used to do in a year. I didn't know how intensely curious I am, until the depression started to recede. It is difficult to be true to myself when I don't know who I am. I am very excited about the things I am doing. The crocheting I started to stress out so I made an ugly scarf....yea, I probably couldn't give it away but it gave me a chance to review stitches. I am astounded at how many webpages and videos are available for free. I am also learning about cooking, I didn't know that there are 5 mother sauces. Once I read about them I realized I used all except one. I never attempted to make my own Hollandaise sauce. I also ate a yummy dinner with DH that I fixed on Sunday so only needed to heat up today and dinner was ready in 15 minutes. I didn't realize until now how much depression took a bite out of my curiosity. Sometimes you got ta come out of the trees to see the forest.
