It is well documented that I have the inability to focus on the actual task at hand when I am feeling hyper. However, it is hard to distinguish between feeling 'normal' after a shift from a low mood, or if I am heading too far in the opposite direction. The risk is the sudden shift can trigger an acute depressive episode. I have often missed the signs, and just enjoyed the sudden bursts of energy. I find the confidence to make life decisions, and start multiple projects simultaneously. Often too many to be sustainably productive. Sometimes it takes an event like this to remind myself that I need to take time out; take some deep breaths, practice good sleep hygiene, focus on slowing down and to re-centre myself.

🌸💮 Need to work on my positive attitude 🏵️🌺 #lifeishardsometimes #lookforthegood #keeppositive #makingthemostofeverything #livingwithdepression

I feel best in the quiet & the cold
I wouldn't miss the feeling of love if it weren't for this flesh & these bones
It's always darkest before the dawn, or so I've been told
Is that why the darkest paths are always the ones I need to take to find home?

Wait. That’s not real life. .

May you always be able to SEE THE GOOD, because there is always, [always], ALWAYS something to be grateful for!

GET IT TOGETHER!
This picture is ... um, not great. It was a candid snap. I didn’t know it was taken.
But it’s LIFE!
We don’t often show the unrefined parts of life. OR, if we do, we make a joke about how we need to “get our shit together”. .

I want to ask you today:
WHO DECIDES IF YOU HAVE YOUR SHIT TOGETHER OR NOT??

“It’s Like Everyone Is Suffering In Silence”

Hats off to @steelbanglez for speaking publicly about his struggle with depression, and for calling out this very unfortunate truth. Please make sure that when you ask someone how they are, you do your best to find out how they really are. Too many people are suffering in silence.

When you're so drained by the demons in your head that the only reason you even get out of bed in the morning is because of work, and the only reason you stay up so late at night is to distract yourself with games so you don't have to think about how much you just want it to go away.
Been a crazy few months, left me exhausted and flared my depression up again. Hopefully things will calm down soon.

Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run

There's still time to change the road you're on

And it makes me wonder. - Led Zeppelin “Stairway to Heaven”

Before anything else,
Find yourself,
Be yourself,
And love yourself. 💕

I'm so thankful I have people in my life who sense when I'm feeling overwhelmed and remind me to take a break and go outside barefood to ground myself.

Please, take me far away from here
I tried my best
I can't stand the sound of my own name anymore I fear
I want to shed my face and all the rest
Pretend theres somewhere else that still has hope and take us there, my dear

Damn, Its been over a year already. Depression is a serious deal. Some of us make it, others don’t. And we’ve lost some great people along the way because of it. This one is a #throwback to a man who’s voice inspired so many, including myself. Chris Cornell’s version of “Billie Jean” R.I.P.
