List ends here, because over the course of the afternoon I’ve been overtaken by the desire to just curl up and cry. Trying to be down to earth about it, reminding myself that I’m doing well to have been off medication for three months and to have had more good days than bad days recently, but that I’m not ‘better’ and that this horrible spiralling feeling isn’t going to just go away. Though trying to think sensibly about it helps not a jot: I’m just so fucking bored of having depression. It’s turned everything grey.
And I’ve still got a fucking loaf of bread to make.
It’s so so nice to have a day off with largely no commitments. Makes a nice change.
