Have you ever thought about diving into something and immersing yourself so completely so that you don’t have to worry about the thoughts going through your head? If so, I did it for you and learned that it’s not a great thing to do, so I don’t recommend it. I’ve been very busy with everything going on in my life that it’s hard for me to focus on the stuff that I know makes me feel happier, such as talking with my friends and family, writing, making content for Acceptable Madness, and more. This last week has amounted to me working almost exclusively on my masters classes and other daily responsibilities, and although I was able to get everything done in time, the act of putting my mental health on the backburner to focus on it was hard… and putting it frankly, it sucked. So, to answer the main question of this episode – no, you can’t work so hard that you forget about your depression. In this episode, I dive deeper into why I think that is.
I am not a doctor, so do not treat this as therapy or medical advice. I just do this podcast with the hopes that it can help some people.
