Soldier on alone…


Today’s Daily PromptWhen you’re unwell, do you allow others to take care of you, or do you prefer to soldier on alone? What does it take for you to ask for help?

As far as the bouts of depression go, I go that alone, because the times that people knew about it, it caused them fear and worry.  I prefer not to be the cause of anyone else’s fear and worry.  There are those who spot my bouts because of my physical appearance at those times.  I tend to go a little pale and those dark rings around the eyes sometimes appear, but then its easy to just simply say I am nauseous or some other white lie.  So, those are the reasons that I go it alone and my reply to the prompt. I do talk about it here on the blog though…as you may have noticed by now.
