I’m Falling Behind On My Procrastinating

Ever feel overwhelmed by daily life?  It is something depressed people live with and fight with.  Little things can seem daunting, so we put them off saying, “I’ll deal with that when I feel better.”

It’s not something we see coming.  Depression often sneaks up on us when we are busy trying to cope with an unexpected task.  It takes away our energy and worse our ability to think clearly.  We delay decisions and things pile up.  When the days of clarity arrive, we set off in panic mode to get caught up.

Depressed people live their lives in fits and starts.  Feeling capable one day and hit by a truck the next.  We can’t claim that our lives aren’t interesting.  And if we aren’t communicating with you, we probably have no idea that we have shut down.  Feel free to interrupt our thoughts as it may help to ease the alienation we are experiencing.

If you haven’t been diagnosed with depression but see yourself in this post, get help.  It is worth the effort to leave the bad stuff behind and make human contact, even if it is over the internet.  Most of all, it helps to know that you aren’t alone.
