Depression is Depressing! Honestly, How do people that have this disease function? I've been depressed for several months now and I just cant take it anymore! I'm so tired of being depressed! I have no energy. I can barely get out of bed. I force myself to get out of bed! It takes a great deal of will on a regular basis to actually get up and do things. I have a long list of things I need to take care of everyday. Yet I am so depressed, I can barely do them. Life functioning things-things that if I don't do there are going to major problems. I'm not talking about things like washing my hair, or getting my nails done. I'm talking about survival! Yet, still, I'm so depressed I can barely do what I have to do in order to survive. This sucks!
I cry at any given moment. Like right now. I'm crying! ridiculous! I'm sad and depressed and crying because I know I have so many things things to take care of and I just don't know if I can do them. Things like keeping food in the refrigerator, keeping my lights and gas on....etc etc. Yet I sit here and cry! Depressing! Shit!
I hear and read that there are things you can do to get of a depressed state of mind. Oh really? Like go for a run? Yeah, I tried that. I've tried that on several occasions. You know what happens to me? When I start running, I start REALLY balling my eyes out. Like crying so hard, I can't see where I'm going! I get an hour to exercise and it's so quite and peaceful and then I start thinking about all the crap I've been through in the last 7 months and I really just start sobbing uncontrollably. Or I run by all the beautiful houses near my tiny little apartment and I really start crying, because of course, I should have all of that if not for the circumstances that have left me with nothing, which we won't get into because if we do, I won't finish this blog. I'll be too depressed. So no, exercise does not do it for me.
Eat some ice cream. No not that either, that doesn't make me feel any better. It makes me feel worse. I don't even love ice cream and if I eat snacks or crap that's not good for me, I just feel fat after and that makes me more depressed.
Take a pill. I've never been good at taking pills. Hence, my four year old daughter! Plus- pills for depression, I've heard makes you feel nothing and lethargic. I need energy to take care of stuff not a pill that will make my head fuzzy.
I guess I'll just ride it out.
