Thank you, Lord!

I have been reminded to give thanks for the loaves and the, "Thank you, Lord!" (John 6:8-13)

I have also figured out that my terrible rash is not the result of bug bites...but I must have had an allergic reaction to something.  I do not have any idea what.  It is clearing up, but I still have a few new spots on my arms and on one foot.  I stopped taking the Benedryl.  I believe that was contributing to my depression.  Yesterday Martha suggested I take Claritin.  She gave me one and the difference is huge.  I feel much better.  I slept better and didn't feel so negative and down either.  I woke up feeling better than I have in over a week!

Yay!! I am glad you are feeling better. I know thankfulness helps me feel less depressed. (Sometimes I have a hard time coming up with things to be thankful for). I woke up much happier today than usual too. I don't know why. I hope you stay happy for a long long time.

I am happy that Kristina left a comment. Now I can leave one without feeling like you will groan and say, "Oh, it's just Martha..." :)

Always good to have an antihistamine that doesn't put you to sleep. I buy the generic stuff.

I don't groan when it's you...but I do like other people commenting too.

I wish I always felt this happy! I hate that I get depressed.

Sorry I'm so bad about commenting. I really DO read your blog. Sometimes I don't leave comments (anywhere) because I don't have anything new posted on my blog. Guess I figure if I comment, people will go check mine and see the same old post, then get discouraged from ever checking. Maybe that doesn't make sense!
Anyway, I can certainly relate--it's depressing to get depressed--and I'm glad you're feeling better!
