The Girl With Moxie
Faces of Depression, Day 11

Today marks the seven year anniversary of Momcat’s death. Funny, I expected to be much more of an emotional wreck, but yesterday was way more difficult. Today I woke up and didn’t feel miserable, just sad and preoccupied. Maybe it’s because I’ve been thinking a lot about what the leader of a bereavement counseling...

Faces of Depression, Day 10

Today was rough. Woke up at 6 and cried from all the anxiety running through my head – my anxiety is at its worst in the morning – and fell asleep again after 7 and didn’t wake up again until after 9. Putzed around, journaled, ate breakfast, then felt emotionally drained and went back...

Faces of Depression, Day 9

Bad anxiety this morning, which didn’t quite go away even with a meditation session. And while the focus with this series is depression, the two are closely linked for me. Today I’m faking it as best I can.

The Girl With Moxie
Faces of Depression – Day 8

Today started out not so great – I was looping on depressing thoughts and anxiety was high. But by the time I took this photo in the early afternoon, I had done some meditating to help me through the worst of it. Started at a 3, got to a 5.

Faces of Depression, Day 7

Took today’s selfie a little before 1 p.m. Post-shower and post-hairstyling, but pre-makeup. This morning I kept busy with household tasks, like changing the duvet cover, finding out the autumn duvet cover will not fit the new, oversized full/queen duvet after I already started the burrito method of changing the cover, going to basement to get...

Faces of Depression, Day 6

After yesterday’s post, I noticed something that disturbed me, so today we’re going to do an unscientific experiment. Here’s the selfie I took today around 12:45 p.m. Now here’s the selfie I took seven minutes later. Based on these two photos, what would you guess my depression level to be today? A five or...

Faces of Depression, Day 5

Took this photo at 1:45 p.m. I’m busy with work projects and personal admin-type tasks (organizing my office/sewing area, doing laundry, etc.), so that means I’m not looping on the issues that make me anxious or stressed. I’m aware that those issues are on the edges of my thoughts, waiting for an opening to...

The Girl With Moxie
Faces of Depression, Day 4

Took today’s photo at 10:45 a.m. Tired, but last night ended on a good note after an honest conversation with my housemate about some issues. I expressed myself clearly and didn’t go into attack mode or get defensive, which made a huge difference. As a result I slept well and woke up feeling more...

The Girl With Moxie
Faces of Depression, Day 3

Took this photo around 1 pm. I had showered and dressed but hadn’t put on makeup yet. Today is a 3 out of 10. I’m stressed and frustrated by my financial situation, and my living situation is also frustrating me. I am very aware that my mouth and jaw are full of tension, and...

The Girl With Moxie
Faces of Depression, Day 2

Took this photo around 3:30 pm. On a scale of 1 to 10, today’s depression level is 4. I had a few interactions that left me feeling wrong, and time at Pop’s house left me feeling sad and a little irritable.
