That Old Swirling Depression


The swirling depths, overtaking the mind. The snow, obscuring.


An evocative card for Depression, definitely. I liked this idea from Mindy in the booklet:

“Remember that this ‘black hole’ is emanating from within, not without. We are not at the mercy of externals when this card appears.”

We are not.

    My thoughts can block out the “sun” and convince me that I’m surrounded by darkness. I have to put on my detective hat and look for evidence instead of accepting those thoughts as truth. But being motivated to do that can be tough.

      In a clinical depression, all motivation disappears, which makes it tough. We are supposed to believe in pharmaceuticals as a magic panacea, but they are pretty limited in my experience, and have side effects that are worse than the depression.
