Everyone always says:
“It’s going to take time”
“It’s not going to happen over night”
“It’s not something that has an instant fix”
(regarding depression, anxiety and whatever other mad things go on in my mind)
It seems to have disappeared…
I’m not saying everything is perfect, but I feel good. Really good.
I feel like I can cope. I can get everything done. I can take on the world!
I don’t understand how this can have happened overnight. At first I thought it was just going to last a day or two, but it’s been about a week now… And I don’t feel like this good mood is going anywhere anytime soon!
The ambitious, happy, active, sociable me appears to be back. I’m not complaining…just confused.
I’ve posted about this before I know, but it seems to be lasting… Is it really possible to wake up one morning and be “cured”?
This makes me think IF it’s a chemical imbalance, a real illness**, then this wouldn’t have happened…
Did I really make this all up?

**Please note I do not mean ALL depression/mental illness etc, I mean MY particular case so please don’t be offended. I know that depression and mental illnesses can have HUGE impacts on people’s lives and I in no way mean to trivialise this, I just mean in my personal case, it seems strange that I have suddenly magically got better!
