On work nights I no longer have to be asleep by 10PM in order to be up by 9AM, and dragging. If I’m still awake at 11 or even midnight, I’m mostly ok.
I’m still very much a spoonie, and always will be. I still have fibro to contend with. Even if I’m in complete remission from my mental health issues, the full long list, fibro is an energy sap. But like I’m doing better.
This is a huge sign I’m doing better.
Also, I’m reading for fun again. Even though I’m still in classes. See if I spend less time hiding from my depression on tumblr, I can find the time to read.
But like for so long, as much as I love books, I couldn’t find the interest in reading. That’s how I knew it was time to change my anti-depressant, btw. That was many many many months ago. But it took awhile to climb out of the hole I was in. Stress from school doesn’t help.
So in my down time, my main hobby was depression scrolling Tumblr.
I still spend a lot of time on this site. But now it’s mostly to talk to my many friends. That’s not depression. That’s living.
