Fighting Back

I’ve been suffering with labyrynthitis and a sinus infection for over 5 weeks now and, unfortunately, it’s seen some of my depression and anxiety symptoms return as a result of being cooped up indoors with nothing to stop me overthinking “stuff”.

My normal coping stategies are my writing (but my eyesight hasn’t been good enough to allow me to do that) or going for my short walks on the canal. Both act as a natural anti-depressant and I’ve missed them both. Have started some medication which is starting to help so, fingers crossed, I’ll soon be back to my magical self and back doing the things I love.

For some weeks now I’ve been unwell

I’ve not been happy and things don’t gel

The fear creeps in and life is hard

I need to find my happiness card

When in my zone I use fairy magic

And trust they’ll steer me away from tragic

But I’ve lost my way and need a guide

So I find a way and do not hide

Today’s a start I’m back to my writing

I’m coming back and started fighting

Depression is a big black hole

And I’m climbing out to retrieve my soul

I just need to put one foot out

the other will follow, I have no doubt

Take one day at a time and gradually I’ll regain

My happy place and ditch the pain

For some weeks now I’ve been unwell

I’ve not been happy and things don’t gel

The fear crept in and life was hard

But I’m fighting back for my happiness card
