This is especially funny from the standpoint of a crip whose mortal enemy is stairs, lol.
This InfoPax is designed to provide you with some information about depression and suggested strategies for how you can manage your mood. It is organised into modules that are designed to be worked through in sequence. Although it is not necessary that you complete…
It’s not an incapacity to cope with day to day living in the modern world. It’s an incapacity to function. At all. If you and your loved ones have been spared, every blessing to you. If depression has taken root in you or your loved ones, every blessing to you, too. No one chooses it. No one deserves it. It runs in families, it ruins families. You cannot imagine what it takes to feign normalcy, to show up to work, to make a dentist appointment, to pay bills, to walk your dog, to return library books on time, to keep enough toilet paper on hand, when you are exerting most of your capacity on trying not to kill yourself. Depression is real. Just because you’ve never had it doesn’t make it imaginary. Compassion is also real. And a depressed person may cling desperately to it until they are out of the woods and they may remember your compassion for the rest of their lives as a force greater than their depression. Have a heart. Judge not lest ye be judged.
EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ THIS.
Depression is not a synonym for being sad or having a bad day/bad week.
My clinical depression is and was impossible to explain to someone because i struggle to change my thoughts in to words like these. But now, this post has made sense of it all and i will ALWAYS reblog this.
This is wonderfully put- It pretty much explains exactly how I feel at the moment.
Chickpea, tuna, and broccoli wraps!
Open and drain two cans of tuna and one can of chickpeas.
Heat the chickpeas in the microwave so they’re soft enough to mash.
Mix the chickpeas, the tuna, a tablespoon of olive oil, two tablespoons of vinegar, and however much salt and pepper you like. I also added basil and dill.
While I was mixing this up, I steamed about a head of broccoli and finely chopped it & added it to the mix.
I chose to spread it on a wheat tortilla with some mustard, but it’s also good by itself or with some pasta!
Also, this made enough for like four servings, so my boyfriend and I have a quick lunch option for two days :)
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bites
- 1 cup oats
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 1/3 cup honey

Mix it all together. Let chill for 30 minutes. Roll into balls. Nom nom nom.
Oatmeal Peanut Butter Protein Bars
- 2 cups Uncooked Old Fashioned/Quick Oats
- 1/2 cup Natural Peanut Butter
- 4 Scoops Protein Powder (I used ON Whey Vanilla Ice Cream)
- 4 tbls Milled Flax Seed
- 1/2 cup water
I warmed up my PB in the microwave for a few seconds to get it loose but other than that just combine everything in a bowl and mix well.
Then press it into a baking pan or other square dish and put in the fridge or freezer for about a half hour. You can put a little water on your fingers before pressing so it doesn’t stick to you. Take the pan out of the freezer, cut the mixture into 8 or more bars, and wrap each individually or put in snack bags. Done!
I’m leaving mine in the freezer since they were still a little sticky but the fridge is fine as well.
Next time I may add some dried fruit to change it up some.
This recipe makes about 8 bars
