Depression is an older friend than I let on. We still pretend not to recognize each other on the street.

shitty, isn't it?

It's got some down-sides. I have an unhealthily large amount of willpower, which can get my past it more often than it should.

I can have life suck horribly for a long time and just... not... stop.

Not that there are no problems. Just that they occur in motion.

You are highly functionally depressed. Its a mixed blessing, i think. On the one hand, you are highly functioning. On the other, its hard to tease out what is depression, what is compensation, and what you might be able to do without depression.

Ouch. You ok?

Okay enough. I'm noticing how I'm not jumping at things I should jump at, and slowing down on things that have motivated me well for a long time.

I'm always surprised when I remember that, oh yeah, "I don't get what I need and I stop being able to force myself to do the work" applies to me too, not just other people.

Mine, too. Sorry to hear you're more than acquainted as well.
