My dysthymia has gotten better. My average mood is not as low as it used to be. And my dives into deep depression are not as deep, nor as frequent.
All of which is fantabulous.
But the downside I’m being reminded of now?
It means I’ve lost many of my coping mechanisms.
So this deeper bout I’m going through today I am totally stuck by. I’m not as practiced (and thus as good) at shaking it off.
Stupid depression stupid.
Can’t better just mean better?
