|Several Dead Geese|
only7slots: hey hey
One of the first things I do on a Sunday morning is read the comics in the Sunday paper. It's a ritual I have been doing weekly since elementary school. It's the foundation of my day.
I don't think about my depressive period very often, but I've noticed how many emotion-oriented systems I developed over those two years. I used to go online and read jokes. They couldn't really change how I felt, but spending a few moments laughing was a relief, a break from apathy.
Often enough, whenever I have a period of time where I have nothing to do, I'll relax and meditate automatically. If I'm doing homework on the computer, I'll most likely be listening to music and when I need a break, I'll switch my focus from the work to the tune. I type into disconnected keyboards.
A lot of my coping mechanisms aren't very healthy. I'm reclusive, secretive. I'm not very trusting. I dwell on my negative methods more than the ways I've managed to keep myself sane over the last couple of year.
Sundays, I can break from it all.
