I disappeared for a bit after my most recent post and I figured that people deserved an update on that front.

I basically realized, with some help from people, that I was driving myself insane from staying at home all the time after work. Along with that, my therapist had suggested that I'm building a skillset for attracting attention to my depression in social media environments but that doing that is not the greatest use of my time either.

I spent the majority of this week getting out of the house and visiting other people instead. It was pretty great and I think I could stand to do even more than I did last week. I also re-re-re-started an exercise program and shifting my schedule around working with that which has also been helpful for dealing with my depression.

I'm going to be shifting downwards a bit just how much I am writing here except when I really have something to say that makes sense to this medium. I'm also going to move some posts to my website I'm working on to give them a more permanant location along with updates related to my recent realizations about asexuality.

Thank you to everyone who has helped me talk these things out and had me over in the past week. I hope to keep this up into the weeks, months, and years to come.

I'm really glad to hear you got out of the house and spent time with people, and even more glad to hear you had a great time doing it! Go you! :D

Thanks for the update. I was reminded recently of how it can be useful to view the process of self-awareness as exploring or experimenting. Since my instinctual tendency is to be of the mindset that I've tried something and it didn't work out so I guess that's it then, it's definitely useful to me.

I bring it up because I see that experimenting spirit in you. You have tried something in seeking out peace and support, and then you analyzed the results with assistance from your therapist, with willingness to say "Ok I've learned from this so I'm gonna modify". I think that's great. :)
