Help me out here peeps… I’m feeling the icky darkness of depression trying to set up camp again. I’m learning, as I watch this pattern continue to pop up in my life, that it’sno linger something I can say ‘I fought and won’ and walk away from. This battle is ongoing, and is a daily fight, and that’s ok. This is what depression looks like-denial, overextending, extreme ups and extreme downs, occasional plateaus and a whole lots of on-going learning.
Current symptoms include: I’m having a hard time waking up in the mornings, I’m oversleeping, I’m feeling burnt out… anyone else? It can’t be just me? Drop a 🤖 emoji below if this is your battle too…

I’ve found a few things that help me kick this-the biggest things are:

One step at a time, one day at a time… one foot in front of another. We are worth the battle.
