Am I Depressed? Or Just Tired?

“All I want to do is sleep.”

I feel like I could crawl into bed and never get out.

I realized yesterday that I’m not depressed … I’m tired.

It has to be sugar and cigarette withdrawals. What else could it be? After eight months of dumping unholy amounts of sugar, flour and nicotine into my system – interrupted only by the occasional extreme diet – how energetic could I possibly be?

I’m sure my body is like, “Dude. After everything you put us through, we are tapping out.”

Fair enough.

I have to keep reminding myself that this, too, shall pass. It’s only been 12 days since my last binge (which was a doozy that knocked me out for days).

Healing takes time.

If I keep doing what I’m doing – eating well, resting, exercising – I’ll start feeling better in no time.
