The Upside of Depression

1. When you call to see a doctor and they ask why, when you tell them you've been feeling sad, they will get you in RIGHT away.
2. You finally did something to render your mother-in-law speechless for now, and just a little afraid of you forever.
3. Skimping on outfit changes and showers means less laundry, lower water bills.
4. Crying burns calories.
5. Suddenly, you're getting high fives for getting up in the morning.
6. Apathy and mood swings makes you feel like a teenager again.
7. Doing Nothing is a cheap hobby.
8. Your new expressionless face is eradicating your forehead wrinkles.
9. No one asks you why you are adding chocolate chips to your cheese omelet.
10. Once you are really feeling good, you can plan a 'bad day' every now and then just to keep everyone on their toes.

I've so lived this dream. OMG. Heh. I'm still laughing about #1. And crying, to the nurse, on the phone, about needing drugs. A high point, I tell yah.

You're just upset because I haven't brought my husband to be waxed yet.

I think that most normal people spend about 40 percent of their waking time depressed. It's the ability to say, hey, this isn't right and actually go to the doctor that's the step in the right direction.

And, no matter what I actually think when I am depressed, working out really does ease bad feelings. It's too bad that that's the LAST thing that I want to do when I am down and out.
