In depression, everything is pain.
Even showers are pain.
Water hitting your skin hurts,
seeing your naked body disgusts.
It’s all pain.
Inspired by the writing of Natasha Tracy and her incredible book, Lost Marbles, which we highly recommend as a must read to everyone who has depression and/or bipolar disorder AND their loved ones.
“I remember going to one of those group things and another woman shared how she used to wish sometimes that her partner would just shut up and take a swing at her because then she could finally walk out. Cause we all know that hitting and physical abuse is wrong but it can be so damn hard sometimes when you’re stuck in the mess of it all to know if the verbal shit has gone too far. I could really relate to what she was saying.” By Chanty (offered via promise of anonymity)
