Today is the day I shower and put on pants that don’t have Elastic. My nails have a new version of pink sparkles:
and I have new makeup to play with. You bet your ass I’m going out somewhere today. Maybe it will just be the grocery store, but I’m heading somewhere.
In all seriousness though, those of us who struggle with a mental illness know how hard self-care can be. Just the act of taking a shower can be daunting on even mediocre days. I only just started with makeup again after a solid 8 month hiatus.
I am going to find a friend to go to breakfast or a movie or somewhere with me today so that I have a reason to do all of these things. It’s mandatory after my hibernating for a few days.
Hang in there my friends. It gets better.
