Depression & Anxiety

Ran through my stash collection on self-care about depression and anxiety. This has helped me.

I saw the comment about having a "soft night" or a "soft day". Do things slowly, gently, and with no expectations.

I relate so closely to the second photo you posted @Redneck-Kitty..with my Generalized Anxiety, i feel like i have lost all control over my brain. I would lose hours, flip a page on a textbook and forget what i just read, have to have someone repeat what they just said because i heard them but it didnt really store correctly in my brain but on the flipside I could describe things that happened a million years ago in great detail, remember where I placed something months ago or remember a friend's childhood number...

I legit thought i was making it up (i was countlessly told i was making it up so I just started believing I did). It wasn't til I got older, learned about how anxiety, depression, etc can effect how your brain stores things, and how the Flux of chemicals released can damage memory storing that I understood it wasn't my fault I had these issues.

I wasn't a broken doll that was worthless but the things that broke me is what made my brain this way. And that I can slowly work to build it back, but it will take years to undo what has been done.

I have both depression and anxiety. It's a kind of cyclic circle of Hell when at it's worst especially this time of year. One leads to the other usually. 

I think they go hand-in-hand for a lot of people unfortunately. I know mine do. And yes, mine get worse around this time of year too. I think it has something to do with the weather and cold, gray, dreary days

Alana_Lala. Your not broken or worthless. you are You.
I am Bi polar mostly on the depression side. I have seizure and anxiety attacks on a daily basis.
I thought my memory issues where just age related.
It's not. Both the depression and seizure do long term damage.
But I am still Me.
Those things may slow us. But they do not stop Us.
I apologize if I have done anything wrong.
I am nu here's.
