I am experiencing a depression relapse.

friends depression irritability solidarity stories

My friends are establishing a routine of playing a board game when we're able to get together, but they're annoyed by my lack of focus.

Honestly? I'm experiencing a depression relapse, and I use my phone a lot to avoid the seething irritability that is constantly bubbling underneath my skin.

I cried the other night because of how amazing it is that I have friends who want to sit down and play a board game with me–and because I feel guilty for not meeting their expectations.
