I Woke up feeling depressed today. This makes a solid week. Although I’ve had episodes of depression throughout the last several weeks, some lasting days or weeks.
What I feel and do while being depressed:
I have art class today but I have nothing in mind to create.
I have a writing project I am working on but haven’t touched it in five days.
I feel like crawling back in bed and hiding from the world today.
I say to my friends that I’m interested in going for a walk but really I haven’t gone for a leisure walk in weeks. (so I mask the depression)
I let the chores pile up.
I feel hopeless.
I feel regret.
I feel anger.
I feel sad.
I feel shame.
I want to let the past slip away but I am unable too.
I just wish this mood would pass.
