Odd Triggers. - March 28th 2017, 05:50 PM

I don't know why but really small fixable things really have been bothering my depression lately.

Like today, I woke up in a really good mood. But then it dawned on me that I have to do part of my internship hours which puts a damper on my date night plans with my boyfriend. I decided just to do it Sunday, but he has to work which I completely forgot about, and now I am just really depressed about it all. Saturday was going to be great but now I have to work and then afterwards I promised my friend she could do my hair, which is going to costs money and my boyfriend is going to be pissed because we don't have a lot of extra money. I could use my personal budget but then I wouldn't even have enough to cover it and I don't want to use all of it, but I feel guilty for not (which is a huge depression symptom for me).

I guess I don't know. I know that I am in control and I can either make today or good or bad, but I can't think of any positives right now. And the more I think that I am in control the more depressed I get because I'm not forcing myself into joy.

Like this is most stupid trigger ever.
Things don't always go our way in life but my depression doesn't seem to get that.
So now it feels like a brick on my chest.

You are not stupid... know that you are having depression and it takes time to cure. They are people who understand that its unpredictable and hard to control, and it doesn't makes you stupid. Don't say that you are stupid...

Do my best at everything I can to live a happy, perfect life.

Happy life won't come by being happy everyday. Struggle and always work hard.

Forgive other's imperfection, they will work hard about it once I point it out to them, just like what I should be doing.

On the other hand, never tolerate with my own mediocrity. Never slack and always strive improvement.

Never settle. Never give up.

Hi Cass,

Thanks for reaching out to get some support.

I understand where you're coming from when you're booking multiple things in a day with multiple people and how stressful money issues can be.

Is there any other day that you can have your date night? A date night doesn't have to be very long, even just cuddle up and watch a movie or go to dinner. When I was in a long distance relationship, we only got to see each other once every 1-2 months depending on money and work. So there were a few times we'd have a 'date night'. my partner would play a movie on her TV, while I was on skype and she'd point her laptop towards the TV so we could watch the movie together.

Are you able to put your haircut off for a week?

There's always positives in life. I know sometimes it's hard to see them, but they are there. Also, sometimes you have no control over how you're feeling.

I hope this helps, and I hope you start feeling better. We are all here to support you through whatever it is that you're going through.

Stay Strong,

“You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.”
