Depression does things to you… like makes your toothbrush the enemy. Why bother? No one will be smelling my breath today as I hide out at home afraid of my own shadow not to mention the entire world outside of the door.
No, I am no longer at that point. I worked very hard to get here where I wanted to brush my teeth again. And more importantly I wanted to brush them for ME. Surprisingly after my last bout of depression I went to the dentist and had no new cavities, just a loose old filling. Makes me glad I have been making a strong effort this year to improve things. All one step at a time, or one tooth brushed at a time.
Bonus! Even though it hurts to admit that it was nearly 45 years ago as I kid I went to the theater several times to see this move, (45 years? Can’t be, can it?) I have to say this is one scene I memorized fast. Even at the movies I picked up on ad jingles.

If we start doing things for ourselves, we fare much better. Great post my friend
Thank you Sadje!
You’re most welcome my friend
Depression sucks. I was in it deep for a couple of weeks. I went to the doctor (NP) yesterday. She said I looked real good! I told her she should have seen me last week. She would have called the guys with the straight jackets! Oh, boy was I a mess. We have to keep our heads up and do for ourselves, no one else. It’s easier said than done, I know. 😉 Hugs ❤
Glad to hear you are doing better! You are right, on both counts – do for ourselves and easier said than done. (((HUGS)))
I am glad you are better. We should do everything for us and not for others.
Thank you, I am a work in progress.
Aren’t we all?
Onwards and upwards!
