One thing that is rough for me…..
When I am depressed and/or anxious, I cannot enjoy quiet. I must hear something and do something.
Example: listen to an audiobook and sketch.
Why? Because the quiet that others take for granted, that peaceful time, is a hell for me.
There is nothing to silence my mind and all the demons, with their electric-shock-like intrusive thoughts and obsessive self-hate lies taunting me. Ruling me.
