Today was one of those days where I had nothing important to do, and no one important to see, so I basically stayed in bed doing nothing. Something told me just to get out of bed, take a shower, and get ready as any other day. In the middle of putting on my makeup I started crying because I realized that I did something that began becoming impossible over a year ago. As I get better I still have up days and down days, but today I have to count this as an up day because I got ready for no reason, and no one asked me to. The little things in life that seam so simple to most people can be so hard for others that have depression or anxiety. It may sound crazy to you that people like me have to force a smile on their face, but I know i’m not the only one.
