DepressionDiaries: Interview Anxiety

I have an interview for one of my college choices in about a week. I’m honestly not looking forward to it, the past week has been rough and I haven’t been able to pick myself up again so I could do something productive.

DepressionDiaries: Small Expectations

Growing up I never really did well in school. I wasn’t the best student but I wasn’t the worst either.

I started setting the bar higher for myselfContinue reading “DepressionDiaries: Small Expectations”

DepressionDiaries: Way too tired

I hope this works. I’m typing this out on my phone. I’ve just left my grandparents’ house and I am exhausted. I didn’t sleep until 3-4 am last night.

DepressionDiaries: The hardest question to answer

HOW ARE YOU? if you’re mentally ill, this question and other variations of it are really difficult to answer.

People tend not toContinue reading “DepressionDiaries: The hardest question to answer”

DepressionDiaries: The Crisis team have been and gone

The two assessors from the crisis team who came over to assess me just left a little while ago. Our session went much better than I had expected.

DepressionDiaries: Crisis team are coming!

I went to see my doctor this morning to see what could be done about my suicidal thoughts. He gave me the option to increase my medication dosage or have a referral to the crisis team.
