I hope you feel better goneaway.
My friend sent this to me. I try to use/ do it. I have to make it a habit .

“ keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words.
Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior.
Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits.
Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values.
Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.”

It is hard to take in a big change all at once, but we can try to take small steps. Small steps are hard at times also certainly because when we take them, they seem insignificant. But they are not. It is progress.

I am also overwhelmed with depression and have been for a few days. I believe I have undiagnosed cyclothymic bipolar disorder and my low has been hitting... well, it has been hitting me very effectively. Depression is an often biological response to brain injuries. Over 50% of individuals who have experienced a brain injury experience depression at some point in their lives. Know that the depression you are experiencing is not of you. It is not your fault and sometimes it can definitely feel like there is nothing we could do to make it better. I've been coming to a place of acceptance with my biological struggles. I've come to a place where I am becoming proud of them. They have helped make me who I am today and I am a kick *** person. Yeah, depression can affect me ... but that doesn't mean it is me! I disassociate myself from depression. I cannot allow it to control me so I do not.
I level with you here: That was my old response to the depressive moods I would experience (that were not of me, please know). However, recently I have not been able to shake the depression off. It is hard. I cannot cry any more. I try to cry to be able to get the emotions out but I cannot. I don't know why. It's as if I have no tears left and that sounds so hopeless. Yet, it's real for me so .. just trying to share here.
I am sorry to hear it was a hard night for you in January. Hopefully things are better for you now!
Take care,
