    Lets Have A Talk

    All my life. That's how long I have struggled with my own personal depression issues. It wasn't easy to figure out and didn't take until I was almost 30 to figure out. That's how hard it is to actually diagnose depression. A lot of people wont talk about it because of that. There's many reasons that people either wont talk about it or try the best they can to hide it. Some of those reasons include:

    Self-Care

    Self-Care

    One of the things that really helps me cope with the woes of depression is making sure that I can recognize myself in the mirror. It is so easy to go deep into that rabbit hole of weariness where you don't brush your hair, you might skip a shower or two and you haven't washed the three day old makeup off your face. One thing for me is that I would go days without making my bed. I would literally sleep on a bare mattress with my down comforter and felt fine with that. I just didn't have the energy to straighten up my room even if it was to just make my bed. As of Monday, I went almost a month without making my bed. My mom would beg me to stop living like that and I was like "my mattress is clean." Looking back two days later, in my extended moment of melancholy, sleeping on a bare mattress because you can't muster up the energy to carry out day to day activities is not ok and that's why it is so important to remember to embrace SELF-CARE.

    it’s the weight of a full-body cast, forcing you to the bed, unable to move. it’s the cotton in your mouth after a root canal, morphing your words to indecipherable muttering. it’s the silence after a wake. you can’t name it, but it brings about a heavy silence that you can feel, rendering you useless. it’s the woman lying on a hospital bed after a miscarriage, feeling utterly alone after the body exits her womb.
