I've been thinking about my struggles with depression today. I haven't had an episode for about a year. In fact, I can't pinpoint the last time I fell into the black hole, but I know it was early 2009. I'm going to pretend I know why and list three reasons for today's 3BT's:
1. Going out with Russell almost every Saturday and snapping pictures.
2. Constant contact with my friends from Kellogg and seeing them in person with increasing regularity.
3. Relaxing and learning playing online poker, playing for play money.
I would also add that I've been very good about taking my medicine and supplements and vitamins. I'm also doing all I can not to do much of anything if I'm fatigued: I'm no longer pushing myself very often. The idea of pushing my limits is dead. I need to live within my limits. I'll let the athletes and super scholars push their limits. I'm not super. I've accepted limits in my work life and home life and surrendering to things I cannot change has helped my mental health a lot.
