This is Not Good



Things are getting bad again.

Everyone with depression can relate. It feels like you're treading water in the middle of the ocean. There's no land in sight. Every now and then, a ship enters your field of view, and you're filled with a little hope that maybe this time, someone will see you. Someone will help you. Someone will pull you out of the f**king water. But the ship steams by on the horizon, never seeing you, never getting any closer, and you're alone again. And then sometimes it's not just treading water. Sometimes, the sharks start circling underneath you. Sometimes, the wind picks up and the flat water gets first choppy, then outright stormy. As if your arms and legs weren't already tired enough.

Yeah. It's like that.

This is not good.

Sorry you're not doing well, friend..I can certainly empathize. The ship metaphor is a good one. I've been treading water in the sea of depression so long, I've forgotten what land looks like.

Hope things get better for you soon
