I DO NOT HAVE AN EATING DISORDER - Page 73
I knew before I started the tracking diary that my moods were going to show a lot of fluctuations, but it was still confronting to look at. Even though my circumstances (job, relationship, family, finances etc) were relatively stable, my mood could take an enormous dive from one day to the next. This is something I still struggle with - trying to accept (and convince those around me to accept) that depression has nothing to do with circumstances. If it did, I wouldn’t have a problem (this is also why that line about people starving in Africa really doesn’t help). It’s a health issue that takes time and treatment to overcome.
