    Life And Living...with Chronic Disease...

    ...

    Even when I get a day off, even when I'm being left completely to my own devices, for some reason, I always feel stressed. No matter what I do, I feel harried, and/or just plain interrupted. If kiddo, fiance, roomie, dog, or cat don't interrupt me, then I'll interrupt myself. I...

    Depression

    I have very little energy and motivation because of my depression. I am classed as high functioning but people don't seem to understand just how much effort it takes to survive and get through the daily tasks of living. Even brushing my teeth can be a huge task.

    I Feel Like An Addict

     I know that being addicted to drugs and being addicted to mental inflictions has it's differences in effects but they have their similarities as well. Instead of trying to stay sober, you try to stay sane. Although both addictions cause a lot of damage physically...

    I think we all do at times. We would not be human with human emotions if we did not. Life is a struggle and it is up to us how we cope with it.

    It is a struggle to go through the motions of a life.  It is exhausting.  My days last forever because I don't sleep much.  How do you move forward?  I am stuck.

    Into More Pieces Than My Heart Was Made Of.

    Does it break my heart? Of course. Every moment of every day, into more pieces than my heart was made of. I never thought of myself as quiet, much less silent. I never thought about things at all. Everything changed, and that distance wedged itself between me and my happiness. It...
