Depression: It’s a Real Thing

Who really thinks depression is fake? Whoever you are, you are mistaken.

Depression is as real as any sickness. There are just fewer outward signs. There’s hardly any vomiting.

It’s a struggle every day to keep the depression at bay. Every day. Lately, I don’t feel much like getting out of bed. I’m not sure if it’s depression yet but it could be. I recognize this sign so I try to do something constructive when I get out of bed. Whatever keeps me out of bed works. Housework, blogging, craft projects, photography,  yoga . . . as long as it keeps me active. The further away from depression that I can get, the better.

On most days, I absolutely do not want to leave the house. Yet, I have a schedule that requires me to leave the house every day. It’s a cruel joke, isn’t it? However, getting out of the house is good for me. It means that I have to drink coffee, shower and put on something besides my night owl pajamas.

When I have a set back in life, I give myself very little time to pout. One evening and then it’s time to move on and get it together.

This quote from Elizabeth Taylor is my motto on quite a few days. My drink is usually coffee but lipstick is sometimes the cure for what ails me.
