Writing Helps Pass the Time

Today I'm once again doing precious little other than sitting on the bed in my pajamas with my laptop in front of me, a tall glass of milk on the nightstand, and a brain full of ideas that need to manifest themselves as written words. My fingers have been flying across the keyboard as I've responded with my 2 cents on a variety of topics on Helium's website.

I'm glad that I have writing as a creative outlook. Without it I'd certainly be going crazy. Sitting at home is NOT my idea of a good time, but since I'm still so worn out, there's precious little else I'm able to do. Also, the whole point of taking time off work to rest is that I actually sit back and REST. This is against my nature, and I'd be lying if I said that all this idle time wasn't eating away as my psyche.

Some people (myself included) have a hangup about the word "depression." It's hard for me to even admit that I am in a depressive mood lately. Part of me thinks that I'm weak or a failure for giving in to that feeling. I've had to be reminded that depression's roots are in the brain's inability to function properly. Although a depressive episode can be triggered by an emotional event or circumstance, ultimately it's bad biochemistry that prevents a person from feeling "okay."

I'm learning a lot about different health issues as I've been generating short articles for Helium. I like learning new things. Here are a few things I've written today.
