So things are looking up
I have made a few changes in order to "accommodate" the depression and work with it rather than against it. I dropped my course load at school down to 2 classes from 5. This allows me to have better availability to work with K as both being in school makes it difficult, and also meet with my CBT (cognitive behavior therapist ) to work through the depression. I am hoping to work part time in fields related to Social Work, helping others has been proven in some studies to increase levels of satisfaction and joy in ones life...getting paid might help too. I am not and never have been planning to apply to UVic this year, so I have not changed or derailed my school plans by cutting back on classes, and plan on taking spring and summer classes, and then a couple next fall. I think over all it was the best decision to make for me and LB.
