You might have noticed that my posts haven’t been quite as regular as they usually are. The eagle-eyed amongst you might even have noticed a couple of blogs posted with no content. That’s because I set up the regular blogs at the start of each month, and recently I haven’t been updating them in time for publishing.
I’ve been really frustrated recently with various aspects of my life, which always triggers a bit of a depressive episode in me. I’m fine. I’m alive. But I feel tense and wound up all the time. The littlest things can irritate me and send me into a crying fit, or a strop. It’s not a nice place to be.
Even when my mind, miraculously, does go for a few minutes without stressing, it’ll realise what’s happening and give me something new to worry about.
Depression blows. It really really blows. And I try to find ways of dealing with it, which recently has been colouring. I like colouring. It relaxes me. It keeps my brain distracted. It’s a hobby that I share with a couple of friends in this hostel place. And by “share” I mean that I’ve infected them. But the point is that to keep myself semi-sane, I’ve been colouring a lot, which means not so much blogging.
So apologies to any of you who might have been missing my regular posts of random nonsense, and a thank you for bearing with me 🙂
