Before I spent a couple of crucial seconds yesterday decorating the hood of some lady’s car with my precious, precious bod, I was celebrating a different survival milestone: springing forward! ….
I always think of the “falling back” portion of daylight savings to be the official beginning of my seasonal affective disorder, so springing forward is a symbolic sign of the lessening of some of my depression symptoms. Alright! Spring’s official beginning is just over a week away.
For me, a big signal that depression is kicking my ass is self-denial of some important things: sleep, healthy meals, a clean house, time to work on important projects. I focus hard on self-care as a way of preventing this from occurring when I can. I even started a self-care themed tumblr that you’re welcome to follow: Care of the Self.
