I’m not sure how I’m doing in regards to my Depression and here’s why

I wanted to put out a brief update on how my tumultuous relationship with Depression is going. 

In case you’ve not read any of my past posts on depression, I’ll sum it up for you. Depression fucking sucks and unless you’re living with it, comprehending it’s impact in a truly meaningful way, is not easy. 

That’s pretty much the status quo for anything, not just Depression. It’s tough to understand without first hand knowledge. 

My war with Depression has been going on since my early teens. I go to therapy, take my meds and see my doctor whenever I feel changes have to be made. 



Lately, I’ve been doing okay, but not great, at least as far as I’m concerned. I’m not always the best judge of this because I’m too close to see things objectively. My wife talked to me the other day about her concerns that I’ve begun struggling a bit more recently. 

Frankly, I don’t know how to qualify that because objectivity is probably mutually exclusive when it comes to judging ones own state when Depression is involved. 



From my perspective, I wouldn’t say I was doing great but I feel like I’m doing okay. I’m really tired in the mornings but that’s also explainable by my life.. 😁

Are you still seeing your therapist? The one who used to be your professor, I think? You mentioned therapy but I didn’t know if you meant that doctor or Pattie.

The first thing I always think of is that a person needs more sleep. Lack of enough sleep will exacerbate anxiety and depression. I know this all too well from personal experience! Sounds like your walking is really helping, plus you and Lizze keeping tabs on each other.
