I'm awesomer than depression

Guys, I'm doing really well with depression. I pretty much have it locked up in a jail cell far away, and even though it can talk to me sometimes, it can't attack me.

I'm awesome!

It's a lot of work to keep depression under control, though. Emotional health is interconnected with everything else; by balancing my attention among my intellectual, spiritual, and physical health, I'm likelier to stay feeling good.

I've been very careful about what I eat, because I've noticed that junk definitely makes me feel worse, while non-junk makes me feel better.

I'm reading, practicing Spanish and otherwise keeping my college-educated brain limber and muscly.

I try to wear real-people clothes instead of pajamas all the time. It might sound silly, but dressing up like every day is a normal day helps me feel more normal.

I also set aside time every morning to study the scriptures (I'm so spir'chal, guys). 

I'm awesome. Go, self!

I'm quite impressed that you get dressed every day! I get dressed on the days I'm going out of the house, and put on sweatpants almost every other day... :)
