Default Depressed, AGAIN? STILL?

Sigh. I think I'm depressed again, and I don't even remember the slide down into The Pit. I didn't notice any depression triggers. I'm much more able to identify them than my triggers for anxiety, although I am learning to recognize those, more slowly, now.

I'm in my office. There are two projects I could be working on, plus my everyday sort of work. I feel a heaviness and soreness in my chest that might be Costochondritis (google it). But the only thing for it is Tylenol.

Something I often do when feeling this way is, believe it or not, to listen to sad songs. There are several that I choose from, but I think I'll choose to listen to some upbeat bluegrass, instead. The sad songs are really not conducive to my line of work; I really have to concentrate on the details of things.

Hope your day is better than mine.--Cool

I hear you Coolibrarian. I feel like I've somehow slid down this huge hold of depression and I'm not real sure when and how it happened. I hope you are able to concentrate on work and not feel so burdened by the depression. Kit

Cool, with all that you have been dealing with I am sure your pdoc won't be surprised you atte feeling this way. Between the issues with your T, work, and this horrible winter weather you have been dealing with a lot.

I think I woke up depressed today, but it didn't last. I think I have a few twinges of grief/sadness/depression (and I KNOW those are not the same things!) today, but as my Pdoc and some of you have said, those are very understandable feelings for someone in my position. At this very moment, 3:25 pm, in the Great Northeast (of the USA), I am NOT depressed.

I hope you climb out of it soon. Hugs.

I'm just getting out of a rut myself. If it snows hard, I am going to play in the snow, maybe make some snow angels.

Here's one for you:
