Always on FB

23 May 2013

My son says I'm always on fb, which is not true.  But still, maybe I've become too attached to distraction. Maybe it's my way of avoiding the real world. Hmmmm….something to think about.

He was right. I was always online, and the hours that I wasn't on social media were often spent on researching suicide loss and risk statistics. I was obsessed with thinking that if I could make a change then I was obligated to do so. Have I made a change? I still don't know. What I do know is that for seven years I tried. I'm not screaming into the wilderness anymore, though I am still moving determinedly toward a cure in my own small way. I have to believe there is a cure or I would not be able to get out of bed each day. My hope is what keeps me moving.
