Em Hotep Tjemsy,

So many people battle with depression and anxiety that I considered it one of the worst "epidemics" among so many people. I am not one of those people to tell someone to just continue to slog through their day when they are battling depression. The day, the routine, it doesn't work. It won't break through the sadness. Telling someone they need to shower and get out of bed is like telling me to smile in the middle of the day or in the middle of a thought. Or like telling an insomniac just to "close their eyes and sleep". I'm reminded of the Home Movies episode where Coach McGurk is like, "wow, close my eyes and go to sleep. I never thought of that. Just go to sleep. You're a genius, you should publish a book!"

However, what I can tell you to try try try to do is feed your Ka. Take self-care. Be kind on yourself. Be gentle on yourself. Take your mental health day and do one thing for yourself, no matter how great or how small; be it time with a book, a computer game, our Discord to vent, call someone, reach out to someone on social media, do senut, go for a walk, anything anything anything. I cannot stress the importance of contacting something *good* simply for the sake of something positive in times where you feel this bad. Have someone else give you something good (as I have seen there are offers) if you can't do it yourself. (which is okay). My prayers are with you, and my heart is with you too. But always remember: be gentle. <3

Thank you for this, it is very kind. <3 I have been trying to make "fun" happen lately, so this is very relavant. Unfortunately, a combination of fatigue, depression (what even -is- fun?) and workaholic-ness has been keeping me from such. I will keep trying. ^^;

It's been 5ever, so I suppose I'll give an update. I'm much in the same position, though a bit better, now. I'm able to work 6 or so hours fairly consistently, though I do sort of just die when I get home. I narrowly missed a job opportunity that I reallyyyy wanted, because I tried working full time for just one day and couldn't handle it. It's an unending medication battle for me, trying to find something that works. I'm pretty much immune to medicine; nearly everything I'm on is max'd dosage, and once upon a time when I was having back pain bad, I took 3 medications, none of which had any sort of effect whatsoever.  I'm taking a new thing now that could be promising. I'll need a dose increase, of course, but it's a solid maybe.

I'm just trying to get by day to day. Feeding myself would be great. Right now I have the strength for Hot Pockets. I'm living off Hot Pockets.

Continuing prayers, Tjemsy. You are strong as all get out to keep putting one foot in front of the other. Lots of folks praying for you here (and cheering you on). If there's more we can do, we're just a message away. <3

You prayed for my dad, now I will pray for you (such as I can at this point). I wish you healing for any and all emotional trauma you have left to deal with.
