I seem a bit off today.....maybe it's because I'm off work for the summer and taking my meds later in the day. Or maybe it's just one of those days when the dark place rises up to the surface despite the medication. That familiar place that slowly creeps into your mind with each hour that passes in the day. Try as I might it's just not budging no matter how hard I try to push it down. Today my dark companion demands my attention, taking a firm grasp on my psyche.
The worst part is the negative thoughts....the reminders of past failures. I certainly don't need to be reminded of my failures, as I've not forgotten them in the least. It's funny how your own mind can be your worst enemy at times, feeding you untruths and negativity. I take solace in the old saying "and this too shall pass" ...at least I am hoping it does.
