It was here before I knew it For some reason The rain clouds parted For the first time In 8 years And soon The sun Was out The skies Were blue The music Was loud The air Was warm And I was smiling For real I was at dinner With an acquaintance And I wasn't nervous I wasn't nauseous I wasn't Afraid And as I drove home I gazed at the stars And realized I was happy Really happy No fake smiles No masks Happy I had forgotten what that feels like I can see Clearly now That things... *Everything is going to be okay
I am officially medicated for my depression, and I had my first counseling appointment on Monday. It still feels...wrong... different. I forgot what it's like to be happy. It still feels temporary, but I just...I'm happy and I know it won't last forever, but I feel warm in my soul. I want to read and write and go on adventures and hike and I don't know how long this feeling will last, but it feels...like safety.
