Depression does have a bit of humour to it too, depending on how you look at it. Sometimes I just don’t seem to be able to think straight. My mind takes a few detours until get gets to a proper conclusion. It is something similar to the porridge brain some women get when they are preg – that I remember having all too well too.
Here’s an example. Every term the school sends the parents a list of stationary we should be getting for our child. My list came as usual with the following items:
HB pencils x 2
White board marker
and a few other items
Book for parents evening.
I kept looking at this list wondering why I need a book for parents evening. I haven’t needed one before and why weren’t they handing us typed out sheets as usual. At the stationary shop I got all the things my daughter needed and then stood there staring at note books…
I then decided that I’m not taking a note book with because I have never needed one before…It was only later that I glanced again at the stationary list to make sure I have everything that all the marbles fell into place – I was to BOOK my time to see the teacher for parents evening. Total porridge brain that’s for sure, but now that I think back, it is a bit funny 🙂 My brain is still feeling a little porridgy at the moment, but it does seem to be cooking a little better than a week back 🙂 So there you have it, depression being funny.
