I was recently diagnosed with a form of depression called dysmythia, a chronic mild depression. Symptoms are very similar to full blown clinical depression, including decreased appetite, no motivation, sleeping a lot, and a general low mood. I have experienced these symptoms my whole life and I decided to get help after I realized I wasn't normal. I'm seeking treatment and my therapist said that sharing my feelings and actively finding ways to remind myself that not everything is bad. This is particularly hard for me, because very few happy things come to me when I try to think about it. Obviously riding is one of those things that bring me joy which is a main reason I started taking lessons again.
I want to know how other people (whether it be you or people you know) find ways to cope with your illness. Posted via Mobile Device
