I'm pretty sure I haven't really talked about it on ello yet, but mental health awareness is something I feel pretty strongly about. I myself have depression, anxiety and ADHD, but I know and love people that run the gamut from Bipolar II to OCD, and probably some others.
Being a creative in the middle of a depressive episode sucks. Straight up, no joke, very un-fun. But it's doable. I am realize I'm sliding into one now and I'm trying to keep it from being too bad, at least.
(On a political aside, I'm very lucky in that I've never had to struggle for insurance coverage. If you're in the US, please call your reps about the new Trumpcare coming up and ask them to vote no.)
I realize that this was a pretty disjointed series of thoughts, but that's what I have to offer right now.
