Another post about depression

I am full on in it, I am in a funk. My depression is fighting the boundaries it’s been given by meds and is in full on attack. I’m certain the time of year has a lot to do with it. It’s cold, I don’t want to move, it was the holiday season, I don’t want to participate. I’m eating for three I think. My brain is fuzzy and all I want to do is sleep – which if you know me you know sleep is also not my friend except when depression is winning, then I manage to sleep..with some help from the other meds sometimes. I make so many plans and then have no energy to do them. This is what depression can look like. Did I mention it makes your body physically hurt all the time?┬áNasty bugger.

What to do? I dunno. I survive it every year or twice a year. Carry on, gain about 10 lbs, and just miss out on a whole bunch of fun things I could be doing but instead, I sit on my couch.

I am working with essential oils and now is the time to put them to the test. My depression is chemical so what I go through now is a mental thing I’m sure. So Cher’s infamous words “Snap out of it” should be all it takes. I should get on the treadmill I know that works, will I? Probably not, it hurts it takes effort I’m cold I just want to sit here. Lame excuses.

So what is this post about? Whining of course. No seriously if I put it out there, acknowledge it maybe it ceases to be the controller that it is. Wish me luck, I wish you the most wonderful of years!
