I'm glad Christmas is out of the way for another year, it wasn't as bad as usual but still not particularly pleasant. I managed to control my thoughts a lot better than normal, which is a sign I've done, or doing, something right. One long standing side effect of my depression which I can't seem to kick very easily when it starts is the horrible feeling of confusion and lack of concentration mixed with anger. It usually happens when I'm doing something I usually enjoy, like gaming.
For me, depression isn't just feeling sad. It's being unmotivated, tired, irritable and many more things.
I have found reading can provide a bit of relief for a short while but actually finding the motivation to do it is a whole different thing. I'm just hoping I don't have that many episodes of this when I'm completing my Project365. If anything I hope my photography will be a distraction at times.
