Depression Marathon Blog

My photo
Diagnosed with depression 16 years ago, I lost the life I once knew, but in the process re-created a better me. I am alive and functional today because of my dog, my treatment team, my sobriety, and my willingness to re-create myself within the confines of this illness. I hate the illness, but I'm grateful for the person I've become and the opportunities I've seized because of it. I hope writing a depression blog will reduce stigma and improve the understanding and treatment of people with mental illness. All original content copyright to me: etta. Enjoy your visit!

tired

tired today.
just
tired.
hard to be tired.
unfortunately
part of this damn illness.
this is where the runner
the athlete
identity
gets so screwed up.
hard to run
when
tired.

hard to work
too.

but lying around
does
not
feel
better.
lying around
screws with the identity
too.
