Apparently it was world Biryani day today. We didn’t know but we happened to order enough Biryani for lunch that there was enough left over for dinner as well.
I’ve been keeping a book by this guy called Matt Haig close by and every once in a while I’ve been re-reading a page here and a page there. The book’s about Haig’s long struggle to successfully beat depression and anxiety, largely without the help of medication.
Helps me with my own struggle to beat my anxiety and depression. I’m into the fourth week after stopping a medication for depression and anxiety and each day is different. This morning I was actually able to do some work. Not much in the second half though.
Covid has added a whole new dimension of fear and negative thoughts. I oscillate between being calm and collected in rare moments, and feeling paralysing terror when I need to sit down and close my eyes and just breathe.
