I know, it’s been a hot minute since I last posted. I blame upcoming tests, school projects, and general course work load, but there has also been some gaming in there. What can I say, it’s how I decompress.
And I’ve needed to decompress.
See last week, last Tuesday, I was on my way to class when my car’s steering column fell apart. While I was driving the car. Luckily I was in a parking lot going about 3 mph. Because if I’d been on the freeway like 15 minutes earlier, I would have died. That is no exaggeration.
So… That image just kind of sums up my, well, year. At least the past few weeks.
School is going well, except for the plan to make friends. If I get an A in the one class I’m going to have to fight for it tooth and nail. So that has me stressed. I mean it’s a good stress. The kind I thrive under. I’m also just still depressed and tired.
But it’ll work itself out, right? It will. I just need to hang in there.
I may have already said this, but I’m in a one-on-one DBT with my therapist. I’ve had to miss a couple of weeks thanks to the car, but we’ll pick up where we left off. It’s good to have a refresher on the skills. I’m also in a point in my life where I’m the most receptive to it. So yeah, that’s going well.
I guess… I’m doing what I need to do. I’m taking care of myself. So eventually this depression will lift. It has to.
