If you’re just joining us, last October I made a commitment to write openly about my depression and how it affects me on a daily basis in an effort to help de-stigmatize depression and other mental illnesses. This is another follow-up post about my life, my serotonin levels, and what I’m doing about it.
I felt like my depression was always manageable as long as I could get through the day, and for a while it was working because I could sleep most of the time. When I started working two jobs, I lost most of my sleeping time and my socialization time which took a big toll and I also lost most of my days off. My home life has been in the shitter since I got back from Germany. I was making it work, but then my mom told me she was selling our house and moving to the mountains with her husband and her husband told me I wasn’t invited and I needed to pack my things and get out. Since that point, I’ve been unable to really do anything. I had to quit a job I liked so that I could make more money, and I’m still working two jobs and 12 hour days.
So that’s what’s up with me right now. I’ve basically checked out of everything else for the time being except for the part where I bought an $80 vibrator on Valentine’s Day and I’m trying to get my money’s worth. TMI? IDGAF. W/E, TTYL.
