Throwback Friday

A post from 2019, I did it back then and I can do it again

Day 1 of recovery- absolutely raw and unfiltered.

Been isolating for over 3 months now which means total shutoff from the world. Decided to rise up again because what other option is there really?

Some fun facts about depression:
Regardless of you having a blessed life with the best parents, best sibling, bestest of friends and a good education; you might still end up being depressed.
Why is this so? Honestly I don't know. Maybe because depression does not discriminate. It may attack literally anyone at any point in time.

But when it knocks the living hell out of you, you have two choices and yes these are choices:
1- To stay down
2- To rise again no matter how many times you have to start from scratch

After going through probaby the worst days of my life, i have now selected option 2. But i cannot do this alone so if you reading this, help me out, maybe by sharing your experience with it?

Remember, you are not alone, nor can you fight this alone. So seek the help you need and let's fight this together 👊

Everyday #Mania

Yesterday, I decided to rearrange my room after a #DepressiveEpisode of about a week. Yesterday, when I woke up, I had energy, motivation, determination. This scared me. Still is because I did the same thing today. Woke up, put up laundry, made coffee, and the days just begun.

Why am I scared of productivity?
Perhaps it's because I'm only used to being productive when I'm #Manic . That worries me because I know i need to keep up the pace or at least keep taking one step forward in spite of my #Depression .

However, i have to remember that thats not always the case. Sometimes sure, but sometimes it's just because I've been taking better care of myself. It may be because of the little steps I've taken that has helped me get to this point. Perhaps it's simply because I haven't forgotten my meds in a while. Regardless of the why, I have to remind myself that I have the gas in the tank to go at least a mile today. That the energy I have won't be wasted on facebook or the like. That mentally, I'm #Stronger than I've ever been.

So, for #today , I will be kind to myself. I will alow myself to work AND rest as I can. I will be strong. #strongerthandepression and #StrongerThanBipolar . I will remember just who I am and fall in love with myself over and over again until it becomes habitual. I will remember that I am #morethandepression and #morethanbipolar . I am worthy of a tidy space to live. I am worthy of the love I give. #iamworthy
