I spent about ten minutes trying to find the perfect Parks & Rec gif to sum up my depressive state to make things seem funny. I want to say to people, "hahaha yes, I am depressed and everything is grey and dead inside but things are okay no really." Mostly as a heads up for why I am being weird and that I am safe and all right and COME ON let me try and find some humor in all of this because it is what makes me feel better for a few minutes.
(and yes I have listened to the "Hilarious World of Depression" podcast. I thoroughly enjoyed it.)

I got up, I had some tea, I made my daughter's lunch. I will help find jumpers in a moment. I will get dressed, brush my teeth, slap on some moisturizer, take the kids to school. I will run errands. I will tidy as much as I can. I will do this. And in exchange I can have another cup of tea, and look at some videos of a capybara chilling out.

I am so sorry to hear you're in a depressive state again. If you ever need to vent, I'm here for you. I will also send you cake, but it will be a store-bought one because I cannot figure out how to use our oven.

Thanks. I don't like venting too much because well shame spiral. Plus I get so fucking sick of myself as it is.
I like sheet cake. Not gonna lie. Grocery store sheet cake with the roses in the corner are the absolute best fucking things around.

Damn, woman, I will never cease to be impressed by the strength of your willpower when dealing with this.

The capybaras have got your back.

I really don't see it as strength. It is kind of a drifting.

Humour is the only thing really that helps me survive my severe depressive episodes. When I lose my sense of humour... that's when things get really dire.

Same. It is the tiny little thing I can hold onto when everything else is washed away from my grasp.

Even those of us without depression are finding this a really bleak time. You'd think 75-degree days in February would help, but it just makes everything more creepy.

Hugs.
