This summer has been an unusual one. Normally this time of year, the sun is out, the weather is gorgeous, and it feels like summer. This year, it feels a bit like it’s just gone straight from spring into autumn, aside from a few days with ridiculous heat and humidity. I don’t know how much of that is the depression haze, and how much is real, but I miss my real summer!
After my last post, I’m feeling a bit better. I’m still dealing with a lot of thoughts and a lot of emotions, and I’m still extremely stressed out with school and other general life things. However, I’m doing better, which is all that can be hoped for sometimes, right? Of course, it’s quarter to three in the morning and I’m blogging, so I can’t be 100% even now. Right now it’s a migraine that I can’t seem to shake, and the fact that my sleeping schedule has been so shredded for the last few weeks. I either don’t sleep at all for two or three days, or I sleep for 10 hours at a time because I’m so exhausted I can’t even open my eyes.
In good news, I’ve started talking to my little sisters again. We found a way to text/chat with each other from our phones that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg (international texting is ridiculously expensive!) – the Viber app. It’s so nice to connect with them again, and it makes me feel a bit less out of touch, even though a lot is going on in my family that stresses me out. My family has always been relatively dramatic, though, so I’m trying to take it all with a grain of salt and just remember that everyone has their problems – it’s how we deal with them that counts.
