Expectations [Oct. 3rd, 2007|07:01 am]

There was a part of me that hoped that, with therapy and anti-depressants, I wouldn't be depressed any more.

Instead, it's like being cured of addiction... doesn't work that way.

Sometimes it's easy, but a lot of the time it's all "one day at a time" bullshit. Which not only sucks but is also seriously fucking boring.

I didn't ask how ya'll handle depressed friends a while back to garner attention for my own depression. It honestly never occurred to me to NOT hassle the hell out of my depressed friends in some mistaken notion that I was helping them. Having had that tunnel vision slapped out of me, I realize that some people want to be left in peace to sort themselves out, some want limited interaction, and some need full-on intervention. It really depends upon the person. Duh.

If you feel the need to talk to someone else let me know. I'd be more than willing to get together with you and talk about this. And yes, it's a constant process, not like getting over a bad illness. I'm sorry.

Depression is a whole lot of no fun. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

Yes. That. Exactly.

Yeah, I didn't think you were trying to garner attention, either. Not a kjc trait, as I see it.

Also, the daily struggle: it's a real fuckin' drag, I'll give you that. I wish there was a button that could be pushed, the "okay I've worked hard enough on this issue" button. Instant emotional and intellectual freedom! I'd be first up against the wall, come *that* revolution.
