    Having a routine

    A part of my recovery from depression, with which I've had a suicide attempt, isolation, cutting, and more, having a routine was easily the biggest factor in my recovery.

    First time in a while I can say I'm happy

    Father died when I was 4-5. Up until I was 13, I had near-constant self-isolation. It was all I knew. I would never do anything due to neglectfulness, and a lack of basic skills that had yet to be built. Even afterwards, suicidal depression still continued to weak havoc on my mental health...

    Tired again

    How best can you ensure a bad day is but a bad day? Everything was promising after 2 days work. Today (Sunday) I couldn't make my Easter dinner, I'm going to eat anyway (and healthily) but I'd been looking forward to it. Napped, feel fuzzier, the same music to motivate me this morning sounds...
