They always ask me if I’m depressed.
I’ve got Bipolar Type 1 and I cycle super rapidly, what do you think?
No, really, are you depressed?
Let me tell you the truth, I hope you hear me say it this one time because I’ve had enough.
My anxiety, my stress – if that’s what you need to call it – is at 7 of 10. 10 is call the morgue. My adrenaline has been full on since I can first remember. Fight or flight…. or both.
Yes, that fight or flight reflex can be triggered.
Listen to me. All the time. It’s all the time. Stop asking me if I’m depressed because the answer will always be yes. What you should be concerned about is my anxiety. I’m more likely to have the top of my head exploded from that than I am from depression.
You know, you’d be surprised at how often that’s the case.
