Irritable, Restless And Discontent
Updated: Aug 3, 2022
Today is a day for self-care, being gentle with myself, and practicing self-love. I am irritable, restless, and discontented. It is a mood that is different from depression and makes me think depression is coming. I wonder if this is what a bad day looks like for people who do not suffer from a mental illness. When I hear someone who is not mentally ill say they are having a bad day, I think to myself, how about imagining bad several weeks or months?
Upon waking and a few hours after, I like to assess my mood. Today, things seem backward and upside down. I have completed a few things that would normally boost my mood. It worked temporarily, as I was engaged in them but I reverted right back to the jumbled negative mood afterward. I just have to gently walk through today, maybe tomorrow will be better. The only way out is through.
Take good care,
