I’m about to go get some stitches taken out of my butt.
You have heard me go on at length about how you need to baby your whole body during depression…
It turns out there is a reason why it’s more than just Feeling Sad. A landmark study from the University of Michigan has shown that the body clock of a depressed person is, well, completely ratfucked. And this might explain why you want to eat icing out of a can, why getting out of bed is such an exhausting prospect, why you’re up with the hamsters all night…
…and why it’s just more than Choosing To Be Happy.
Depression fucks with you on an absolutely cellular level.
Just look at this diagram.
So, forgive me, Happy Folks, but teasing that bit of yarn apart is going to take some time and some serious recovery tactics.
Stay strong, my fellow fruitbats.
