I didn’t even see it coming on. I have to admit, I’m pretty fucking surprised. And now I’m smack in the middle of it.
What is it?
Dammit. I thought I was done with this. I thought I had protected myself from falling victim to depression’s sticky clutches.
But I was wrong.
And it doesn’t make sense to me. I just started an awesome new job with a law firm, I’ve been running again, hitting awesome PR’s at Crossfit and seeing positive changes in my body.
But depression isn’t logical.
Unfortunately, it was the death of Robin Williams and all the tweets and posts about depression that have followed that caused me to see where I really am. Most specifically, it was this post that alerted me to the fact that I was back in the clutches of depression: 21 Things Nobody Tells You About Being Depressed. (If you are lucky enough to have never experienced clinical depression, give this a article a read. It is a very accurate account of what I know I experience when I’m depressed.)
