Ponderings of a Self-Proclaimed Wallflower...

You might be depressed if...

I'm feeling a rather sarcastic humor today...it happens...often...

So in that spirit, I'm starting a "you might be depressed if..." post.  Feel free to add any tidbits of thought to my party...

If you welcome illness because it gives you a "real" reason to stay in bed and avoid people..
     you might be depressed

If you decide to clean your desk but haven't in so long you can no longer find it...
     you might be depressed

If cute holiday children's specials anger you because the real world sucks...
     you might be depressed

If you are bored out of your mind but don't have the energy to do anything about it...
     you might be depressed

If you walk in and people run the other way...
     you might be depressed

If everyone else knows the perfect way for you to "get over it"...
     you might be depressed

If people ask you what your dreams are and you realize you don't have any because "what's the point?"...

Running on Empty

I'm not writing much lately.  To be honest, I'm not doing much of anything creative except my occasional silly song lyrics.I've gotten out more lately.  I went to a couple of Christmas parties. I reached out to a friend over coffee. I've somehow managed to cook dinner and do enough laundry to keep my husband in clean underwear.  Last night, the girls and I even started laughing and singing along to Christmas songs. No matter what happens, once the moment passes I'm back in the gray...truth be told, sometimes I can even feel it trying to creep into the moment. And I'm still empty...
