Today was a bad (depression) day

It’s the pre-Christmas crunch for the Red Wings, with 5 games to be played over the course of 10 nights, and Monday was a busy day from a news cycle point of view, with Robby Fabbri’s surprise contract extension being announced at 9 PM…

But I had to step away from the computer and pull the covers over my head instead. I’ve been dealing with both a bad cold/flu bug for a couple of weeks, and my anxiety and depression have been flaring up.

Monday was a particularly bad day from the depression standpoint, and I’m still in a lot of discomfort this evening. There’s not too much that my medications can do to help and even the aunt couldn’t seem to break down the walls that I’ve put up, so…

I’ll see what the evening holds, and hopefully be good to go for the morning skate on Tuesday.

This sucks, and I hate talking about it more than I hate having to deal with it, but people tell me that it helps them to be reminded that people with mental illnesses are human beings that have public lives, so…I’m letting you know how things are. They ain’t great.
