Jesus that was a really bad one. This week has been absolutely terrible – I haven’t sunk that low for a very long time. I’m feeling much better today – the black thoughts have lifted somewhat and everything just seems a bit better. I don’t know if that is to do with the natural curve of my depression, or somehow my first tablet of Prozac has had an effect (I thought it was supposed to be at least 2 weeks before you noticed any change at all? – perhaps it’s a placebo effect?) Maybe the black mood was somehow related to my headache which has now also disappeared… coincidence?. Whatever the cause, I feel very relieved to be through it. I am now able to wear my public mask and function as a human being again – long may it last.
