Just thought I'd come up for air for a few minutes and post a quick update.
Thanks to all for your kind comments and prayers. The depression hasn't lifted, but I do seem to be making it through. It has been difficult because the depression doesn't just affect my mood, it affects my ability to think clearly. And it's difficult to do my job when I'm walking around in a mental and emotional fog.
It's time for science ... My science girls always whisk me right out of whatever funk I'm in. Even though I go right back to it after they leave, it makes for a nice 50-minute class period.
