I've been low key depressed for a couple weeks. It's preferable to the depression I get sometimes where I only move to go to the bathroom or smoke but it's still pretty shitty. I'm not even working my way out of it by being an adult a few times a day as is my general strategy in this situation. After two years of bullshit, disappointment and discouragement I might be stuck like this for a while, not wanting to do anything or having energy to do things I enjoy. It's very meh and there's not any solace in the fact that crippling depression and manic psychosis are worse.

I find going to the supermarket a pretty nice way of just dragging yourself out of bed and, like you said, being an adult to cope. There's always something you can restock: rice, beans, toilet paper, olive oil. It's not the most efficient, but for staying afloat while low-key depressed, I think it's a good strategy.

I've been too broke to buy food at several points recently. From about 10-3 is the only time I can expect to leave my apartment without being stuck in ridiculous traffic. And the grocery stores here are crazy busy if I don't go during that time window. I really need to move to a different living situation
