You may delay, but time will not, and lost time is never found again.
There is one thing I do best when I am depressed, procratinate. It’s not that I am lazy, it’s just that I have no energy. My energy is devoted to my depression. It seems I just cannot help myself. Now do not mistake this for being a messy person, I try to keep up with the basic household chores, beyond them it is a big zero.
I am not sure if this is a common trait with people fighting a mental illness, but for this person it is.
During a depressed episode it even hurts to think about doing something. So, projects that I may have started when in a high are left exactly where I left them. They stay like that the entire time of my depression.
Somehow I manage to find just enough energy to go to doctor’s appointments, and shopping for groceries. Then I return home and find myself back in bed for I am totally exhausted.
My depressed state of mind feels like a loop. Procratination is my constant companion!
