What is the best way to cope with a really bad depression? After the last few weeks, I confess I must have forgotten. Sitting it out until it magically dissolves again? Bravely confronting it with your last crumbs of energy and determination? Taking an extra dose of pills? Trying to talk about the un… the untalkable with someone in his right mind? Attempting to rationally analyze your desperation, fear and disgust? Clinging to simple small daily routines such as taking a walk or feeding the cat? Concentrating on something physical using that mindfulness thing? Or just sleeping, sleeping, sleeping, sleeping, sleeping for most of the day?
The last weeks I tried nearly all of these things, and I’m still not yet sure. I think I’ll opt for my bed again now.
Probably I’ll be back here within a few days as if nothing happened. With another Interesting Inspiring Informative Post. But right now I’m afraid I am, well certainly not out of weird ideas, but sadly out of words. Out of motivation, too. Temporarily sold out, sorry ma’am. We’re waiting for the next batch. For the meantime, as a light and healthy alternative, can I recommend you this wide array of Cat Photos at Flickr?
If you came here expecting one of my Interesting Inspiring Informative Posts, then please do take a look all over this site. For actually over the last couple of years I wrote plenty of them. At times when I could find some words. They’re not bad at all.
Right now, I can do no better here than saddling you with a bleak picture and a bleak song. Neither will cheer you up. Still, please be kind enough to consider that at least for my part, this still counts as a sign of life.
