Naturwissenschaften bitch!

It actually is saying Nature Sciences (Wissenschaft = science, Wissenschaften = sciences), but yes this is still very hilarious :)

Depression is humiliating. It turns intelligent, kind people into zombies who can’t wash a dish or change their socks. It affects the ability to think clearly, to feel anything, to ascribe value to your children, your lifelong passions, your relative good fortune. It scoops out your normal healthy ability to cope with bad days and bad news, and replaces it with an unrecognizable sludge that finds no pleasure, no delight, no point in anything outside of bed. You alienate your friends because you can’t comport yourself socially, you risk your job because you can’t concentrate, you live in moderate squalor because you have no energy to stand up, let alone take out the garbage. You become pathetic and you know it. And you have no capacity to stop the downward plunge. You have no perspective, no emotional reserves, no faith that it will get better. So you feel guilty and ashamed of your inability to deal with life like a regular human, which exacerbates the depression and the isolation.
Depression is humiliating.
If you’ve never been depressed, thank your lucky stars and back off the folks who take a pill so they can make eye contact with the grocery store cashier. No one on earth would choose the nightmare of depression over an averagely turbulent normal life.
It’s not an incapacity to cope with day to day living in the modern world. It’s an incapacity to function. At all. If you and your loved ones have been spared, every blessing to you. If depression has taken root in you or your loved ones, every blessing to you, too.
Depression is humiliating.
No one chooses it. No one deserves it. It runs in families, it ruins families. You cannot imagine what it takes to feign normalcy, to show up to work, to make a dentist appointment, to pay bills, to walk your dog, to return library books on time, to keep enough toilet paper on hand, when you are exerting most of your capacity on trying not to kill yourself. Depression is real. Just because you’ve never had it doesn’t make it imaginary. Compassion is also real. And a depressed person may cling desperately to it until they are out of the woods and they may remember your compassion for the rest of their lives as a force greater than their depression. Have a heart. Judge not lest ye be judged.

Manuscript Update

Yesterday, over the course of 8 hours I wrote 6,222 words. I think my total word count for the first draft of my manuscript so far is nearing or at 40k. I think Camp NaNoWriMo lit a fire that I cannot quench. 

It’s okay. I love fire. Mmm, bonfires. Mulled wine. Whisky. Apple treats. Music. Laughter. BRING ON AUTUMN!!!!

I’m still so gross. Granted, the photos on the left are only a week old and I was wearing scrubs (not the soft comfy ones some people get to wear, but the medical grade, non-breathable fabric, cinches your stomach so it looks like you have two kind) and I was bloated from being a woman (stupid reproductive organs). The ones on the right were taken today. 

I do love being able to run around with my son for the first time in his life, though. I’ve gotten quite good at that.

I’m off to go have a writing session with one of the ladies from my group :)

book club

I feel like I could totally start a Skype-based book club with most of the people I follow and who follow me … if it weren’t for these damned time zones getting in the way.
