This week, we’re talking triggers, those nasty things that send us into depression or, if you’re bipolar, crank up the mania. I’m more susceptible to depression triggers and nothing triggers depression for me more than work. Tomorrow, I’ll write about work and depression.
Then, Thursday, we’ll talk about other triggers and how to cope with them.
What are your triggers? What sends to the basement? What shoots you to the sky . . .convinced you can fly . . .without a plane? Let us know in the comments.
See you tomorrow.

My anxiety amps up with excessive stress…and I’ve also noticed it kick in when my diet has been exceptionally crappy. As you would assume, a lot of time those go hand in hand.
I used to be really good about not eating sugar. It was the only thing that I could trace to an increase in depressive symptoms. But lately? Oh, my god, I can’t get enough of it. I think I’m under a lot of stress lately, too. Sometimes, I can’t get a decent breath. I hate those days when the only reprieve is to go to sleep.
