Faces of Depression, Day 21

Oct 21, 2016

Today was a little better. Even though I’m still stressed about money matters, I know they will turn around soon, and my depression doesn’t overwhelm me – it’s just buzzing in the background. I felt restless this morning and couldn’t settle myself enough to do much work, so I went to Starbucks, got some...

Faces of Depression, Day 20

Oct 20, 2016

Today has been better. Had work projects to keep my mind occupied and some quiet time on the back porch, including cat cuddles, eased the stress and anxiety on the fringes of my brain. Today is a 5 out of 10.

Faces of Depression, Day 19

Oct 19, 2016

Woke up on the late side this morning, but got to work on a couple tasks that distracted me from my anxiety and then did some journaling that gave me much needed clarity about some of my bigger issues regarding self-worth, validation and self-assessment. After that, I felt confident enough to negotiate some deals and...

Faces of Depression, Day 18

Oct 18, 2016

This is what it looks like when you get up late because you don’t want to deal with anyone, but you shower, put on makeup and do your hair because you are supposed to go to an event tonight that you’ve been anticipating for months, then you find out the financial hole you’re in...

Faces of Depression, Day 17

Oct 17, 2016

I had a feeling that several 7-plus days in a row meant a crash was coming, and sure enough, today was pretty craptacular. Client issues, my living situation and financial stressors compounded to make me extra agitated and irritable…which leads me to something I’ve been meaning to discuss: anger. Many people may not realize that...

Faces of Depression, Day 16

Oct 16, 2016

We’re now a little past the halfway point for the month and I’ve learned a lot over the past couple weeks. It doesn’t matter too much how I look – or how anyone looks, for that matter – when depression is present. If I do my hair and makeup, it can deftly conceal the...

Faces of Depression, Day 15

Oct 15, 2016

Long day but a good one. Spent several hours at the AAA service center getting the car checked out, but had letter writing, journaling and a little urban exploration to keep me entertained. Then went to Pops’ house to hang out and look for old stuff of mine in the attic. Went to the...

Faces of Depression, Day 14

Oct 14, 2016

Busy day with client work, a subject interview for an article, and a new contract (yay!). Took this photo a few minutes ago using the crappy front facing camera on my tablet, so it’s blurry and dim. I’ve been cold today, so been wearing a beanie and scarf my cousin Sasha knitted for me....

Faces of Depression, Day 13

Oct 13, 2016

Took this photo around 3 p.m. Woke up feeling much more positive about everything, and the annoyances that popped up over the course of the day disappeared quickly. I felt restless and distracted most of the day, but by the evening I felt more focused and was able to complete a few items that...

Faces of Depression, Day 12

Oct 12, 2016

Woke up at 4:30 am and couldn’t fall back asleep, so I read a book until I got sleepy. With that auspicious start to the day, I thought it might end up not being all that great. But it turned out to be much more serendipitous than I could have hoped for, and I...
