Long time, no post.
2018 was a hard year. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only who felt that way. I spent a lot of months down in a depression hole. But I kept writing, kept taking my medication, kept seeing my counselor, and I’ve got a great support system. And thankfully, I am currently in a lot better place.
I know it’s not “all better” now. I will still have good days and bad days. I will still have terrible days where everything feels hopeless. But, when I use all the tools I’ve learned and ask for help, I can get through them. I know that.
Depression is such a strange, unpredictable animal. I posted something on my Facebook earlier today that I think relates why I feel that way.
It’s weird and sometimes incredibly frustrating, the things that can trigger an episode for me. Even I don’t always know what it will be.
A lot of people commented with praise for my speaking up, and thank you for that. I appreciate it. I’m glad if it helps someone else, but that’s not why I do it. I speak up because not speaking up is part of my illness. And I always, always feel better when I do. When I name my monsters and shine a light on them. Even if they’re sniveling and ugly and mean. Especially then.
Anyway, I don’t want to get too deep in this first post back after so long. In fact, I’m thinking of setting up a separate blog to talk about my depression and other health issues and keeping this one strictly for writing. But I don’t know. I don’t want to bum anyone out who comes here looking for sexy stories, but I also don’t want to be disingenuous either.
I’ve been getting some new hits here lately, people coming over from my Instagram. (HI IG PEOPLE!) I think it’s because of my toe pictures. People are fascinated by the extra toes. (I’m polydactyl, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned that before. I’ll post a picture below, or you can go look at my IG @morgan_elektra). People coming here for my romance or erotica writing and people coming for my awesome toes and people coming for my depression and/or PCOS posts, it could be confusing and drive people away.
I’d prefer to have it all in one place, honestly. And not only because I am lazy and forgetful either, but because all these things are aspects of who I really am. I’m kind of a mess, but I like sharing that with y’all.
But what do you think? I’d like to hear from anyone who actually comes here and reads these. Should I keep those things in separate spots, or leave them all here for anyone looking for the oddity that is Morgan Elektra?
I am going to be trying to post more this year, so your answer is important to me.
So for right now, this is going to be the one-stop-shop for all things me. That may change in the future. Stay tuned. Comment and let me know your opinion. Tell your friends. Make it a thing.
And if you’re new here, hi. I’m Morgan. I’m a writer who suffers from PCOS, Major Depressive Disorder, general anxiety, and I have six toes on both of my feet. (As in, six on one foot and six on the other.) Those are just a few of the things about me. If you stick around, you’re bound to learn more. At least, I hope you do.
If you want to connect with me elsewhere on social media, you can find me on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for now. I am not tech suave so I think that’s all I can handle for right now.
Thanks for listening. It’s been a good day. I hope you feel the same. If not, maybe tomorrow will be better.
