Get out your bird flu masks
Depression seems to be going around lately, at least in the little corner of the internet I frequent. There was this post from Kendi, and this one from Jenny. And I’m pretty sure Dooce is still dealing with some stuff.
Are you sad? I’ve been feeling a little down. Not depression, but anxiety. Which some would say is a slight distinction, and I guess it is, but right now it feels very different to me.
The other night I Googled natural anxiety remedies and so yesterday I did yoga and took a lavender bath. Then I got in bed and watched The Bachelorette and ate a chocolate chip cookie (which Google did not recommend, but I do). And I bought some green tea, but then I forgot to drink it. Today I’m feeling a little less anxious, aside from worrying about the bruise I got on the top of my head from doing a headstand in yoga yesterday and the fact that I forgot about the green tea I just bought.
Anyway, as I said, I’ve been seeing a lot about depression/anxiety around the internets lately and have been feeling a bit of it myself, so I just wanted to gently remind all of you to take care of yourselves. I still have the name of a great therapist in Wichita if that’s something you’d be interested in. If you’re not ready for that then I highly recommend a little yoga with a nice chocolate chip cookie cool down.
