Depression comes in all shapes and sizes.
Some people can’t get out of bed. Some people can’t think of the anything good about life. Some can’t eat, some eat too much. Some uncontrollably cry. Some people want to die.
Me? I have inexplicable aches and pains. As well as an intense oversensitivity to everything.
Today, the pains are winning. My perfectly healthy left knee feels as if I am in need of a knee replacement. What can I do? Nothing. At this point in my life, I understand that my brain chemicals are out of whack and that I don’t need a knee replacement and I don’t need a trip to the ER because I am not dying. It has simply become a part of my life. And instead of fighting and complaining about it, I accept it and understand it and go on with my life knowing that tomorrow I might have another pain in another part of my body and I won’t need a trip to the doctor for him to look at me like I’m off my rocker.
And let me explain something…I am not sad about anything at all. My life is good. Is it perfect? Absolutely not. But it’s good right now. And I am a day by dayer. I live for today.
I hope that your depression is not winning today… but if it is, just remember that tomorrow is another day and that it will be better.
Peace, Love and may your brain chemicals not wreak havoc on your life today.
