Today I was told that happiness doesn’t stop depression, it just masks it.
Is this true? If it is, what’s the cure?
Yesterday I was told that I’m not broken, I’m stuck.
Is this true? If it is, how do I get unstuck?
Today I feel like I’m only surviving depression.
Is this acceptable? Only I don’t want to just survive it-I want to conquer it!
I’ve only been diagnosed with depression and anxiety for 2 months now. How long will it take for me to not just survive and cope with depression, but conquer and defeat it? Will it be tomorrow, next week, next month….
I hate going to bed after a good day, as I’m worried about what mood I’ll wake up in. Will it be a good day? Will anxiety rear its ugly head? Will depression permeate my brain? Will I get through the day without crying?
Having anxiety and depression is exhausting. I’m struggling to exercise, am overeating, putting on weight and lacking positivity in everything.
This is so unlike me. But is this who I am now? I hope not.
I don’t like the new me.
The new me is sad.
I want the old me back.
The old me was happy.
But if happiness masks depression, was I truly happy before?
Looking back, me think not!!
So who am I and who do I want to be?
