Today I woke up depressed as usual. Hubby decided to put New Girl on Netflix and we watched several episodes and while I wasn’t laughing like him, I felt things lighten a little. Then I got hungry and he went out and picked me up something to eat. He really is a dear even though he can piss me off like no one else. Speaking of which when he came home he did something that pissed me off. I couldn’t let go of it and right now the pissed off feeling still lingers.
Thing is it was something stupid and trivial. I know I should just let it go but my body really loves to hold on the that anger. Or is it the brain? Probably both. I know I’ll calm down eventually but for now I am just pissed that I almost felt good and it’s gone now. FUCK!
The same thing happens to me. Soooo frustrating! Irritability is one of the terrible symptoms of depression 😦 I have found that forcing myself to do something that distracts me from what is irritating me really helps. If I start to get aggravated to the point where it doesn’t feel like it’s going anywhere then I will usually go for a walk, listen to music, or write. Writing how I feel usually gives me a chance to really process my thoughts and identify what is underlying my emotions. I hope maybe this helps you too!
Thanks I will try doing that next time instead of sitting there fuming. Anything has got to be better than just sitting there getting more and more pissed.

Yeah I hear you, just letting myself stew in it always ends badly.
