I don't openly talk about this much, but I've been struggling with depression and anxiety since I was a teenager. Sometimes it gets to be too much, and sometimes I have months where I feel completely fine. In the past year or so, I've noticed that when I get down in the dumps, I get really down. I wholeheartedly believe that part of the problem was that I wasn't reading much. A good book can take your mind to a completely different place. It can be a nice escape from reality.
The problem is...how do you maintain a blog when you don't feel like doing anything? There are times where I can't even bring myself to get out of bed. Blogging can be a lot of work, but normally, I enjoy it because it gives me a sense of accomplishment. When I'm not reading, I'm not blogging,
