I’m finally feeling lighter. Depression feels like a heavy weight on my chest and in my gut. It holds me down and makes it hard to move, hard to do anything. I feel perpetually drained. And it kills any interest in things other than my pets and sleep.
But the weight is lighter. A month after my last medication adjustment and after the adjustment period (read: hell), I actually have some energy, and my motivation and willingness to engage with the world is coming back.
I’m hoping this is the start of some momentum upward and out of the darkness.
