The great thing about living with anxiety and depression is that it’s causeless – so that, in an otherwise happy life, the person in question still finds it difficult to make it quite up to normal-functioning capacity, to feel comfortable and content, to write or say anything that doesn’t sound hopelessly foolish and stilted and worry-inducing, regardless of whether or not that’s actually true. Sometimes I think I should write about this here – what it’s like to deal with this; but I know that a) in the grand scheme of things, such a problem is almost imperceptibly minor, and b) that it just sounds too Oprah.

More continuations tomorrow, when I feel comfortable writing and reading it and not feeling terrible about what I’ve offered. In the meantime, I think I’ve figured out why I haven’t, as of late, spent much time speculating about the future: I’m pretty good where I am, right now, and I don’t need to plan out anything else until the occasion arises. That makes me unlike everyone else here, and I’m not sure how to feel about such a state of affairs.
