Have you Unfollowed Me Yet?

You just don't know how many true friends you have
until you stop blogging for a while and get screamed at.

Lovely screams.

It's been a week since I've posted anything.
And I've heard about it.
Isn't that nice?
I've received emails, phone calls and even a sweet ecard.
All wondering if I was dead.

I'm not.
I assure you.
I'm am most certainly, probably alive and well.
These pictures have nothing to do with this post.
I just like a post with pictures, don't you?

Where have I been?

A dear sweet friend of ours passed away.
So there was a funeral.

Another friend is very sick.
So there is soup to be delivered.

More derm appointments to cut stuff off my face.

A bout with depression.
Which was really weird since that's never happened before.
Just couldn't get out of bed for a few days.
I feel fine now.
Did you know that being depressed is not fun?



I haven't read any blogs in the past week.
But know I love you all.
Really.
Thank you to those of you who wrote
and called to make sure I was among the living.

That's all I have for now,
I'll try to come up with something witty soon.

Holly
xxx-ooo

Yes, I do know that depression isn't fun. It's crap. I hate it! Hope you rebound soon. Sorry about the funeral and the sick friend and the depression too. I'm at Daughters. Hounds are running through back yard trying to kill each other, Gunnar is crying and boys are gone but have swim lessons in a bit. It's just special here. Hugs and Diet Coke all around. At least you have people that miss you when you're MIA. I think it'd be months before anyone missed me.

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your friend.

I hope you are feeling better & that is no fun.

You cannot get rid of me, still a follower/fan :)

I've been through that 'crap' too. I am prone to the big D(epression) genetically speaking and take meds. When I can't get the ones I really like, I have to take another and I hear about it from my body/brain/whatever. Really makes a difference. Want me to bring you a very strong diet coke? Because you know I will. Miles mean nothing to me. :))

What a bummer of a week. No wonder you were so quiet and depressed.

Funerals: we've been to TOO many this year. Sad stuff.

Sick friend: your soup/stew will do the trick for sure. YOU are a GOOD friend indeed.

Depression: can't say that I've had it (although I can be grumpy/out-of-sorts/quiet now and then) but it runs in my family, so I've seen it first hand. It's temporary, Holly. You don't seem the type to hold onto things and seem to see the positive side of 'life'.

I could give you more wisdom, but won't. Just know I love you and if you need to call me, please do. We can talk about crap that isn't deep....just silly stuff.
Or how great I am!!! And Jo. And YOU!!!!!

Warm hugs and cool breezes.

i kept waiting for you to post something. i figured after the closet cleaning you were exhausted. Good to see you are still around!

Bev said...

Well, I've certainly missed you! You always give me such a great laugh. I'm so sorry to hear about the reason.

I was hoping that you won the lottery and found better friends. And got a pool.

Seriously, I hope you'll soon feel better, Holly. We really do miss your antics.

How wonderful you have blog friends who call to see how you're doing! Sounds like you've had a lot on your plate lately. Hope you're feeling better soon. I don't think this heat helps. Sometimes I find I have nothing to say on my blog ... so I wait until inspiration strikes. Blessings,

Sounds shitty, and yes depression was my closest companion for years.
Do something extra nice for yourself, a kind of payback :)
Sorry for your loss, glad you're on the mend.

I did not unfollow, and would not. I was worried, but did not know what to do. I was concerned that I would make things worse by asking you what was wrong, sometimes we just need a little space. I am glad you are OK, cause I really missed you and your wonderful view on the world. (glad your back, my friend).

A Vintage Green said...

Glad you posted today. Sleep when you can, drink water, breath some fresh air. Take care of you. Your comment friends have good thoughts.

Tabitha said...

I'm so sorry for your loss and sorry for the depression. Miss you and hope you feel better very soon. *hugz*

You are always a dose of whoopie fun to me. I kept checking for something outrageous to be posted from you, so ... the answer is "no, we're not gone", looks like we're all still here. I'm not always a barrel of fun myself and we all go through the highs and lows of life. Debi

Laraine Eddington said...
