Todays the first day in yonks that I've been a fully functioning normal person!!!
Had a flare up of depression that started 4 weeks ago and have been of work since (long story short version is had pnd since Sept 2010, came of antiDs (under the GP) and it didn't 'work' so back on them now but taken while to 'kick in')
Todays the first time in 4 weeks that I've managed on my own to get up and dressed at normal time (for 8am ish) get 2.9DS to swimming class, cook decent dinner and tea for DS (as opposed to frozen crap stuff), get dinner prepped for me and DH, do the hoovering, (just one load of) washing and had NO NAP (tiredness has been killing me this time round)..... I'm really proud of myself, this time last week I went to a friends for coffee and cried buckets when DS has a wee accident, anything not going to plan was sending me into a flat spin, whereas today I've managed to deal with a leaking washing machine and DS accidentally smashing a pyrex jug in the kitchen without a tear!
I feel like a normal person! Horrah!!

Yeahhhhhhh. You take it easy tonight and as already said don't worry if tomorrow isn't so productive, you will have more and more brighter days.

Bollocks to both "secretly" and "a little bit" tbh - you've done great!

Remember this feeling, remember that you can feel like this. The black dog will try and come back but you know you're stronger, this is your proof

Marvellous. Leaky washing machine would've made me near tears before broken glass so be well and proud. You're getting there.

Be proud of your pride, well done.

Just remember to take it easy this weekend and don't feel bad for relaxing a bit if you feel tired from today's burst of energy.
