Reading now: 727

I’ve had a bad summer cold for about a week now. And I am tired of it. I’m tired of using dozens of tissues a day and coughing until my head hurts.

But also, being physically sick brings out another side of me, at least in terms of my mental health. I feel incredibly emotional and sensitive.

I am on the verge of tears multiple times a day. I crave validation and love, even more than usual. I haven’t felt this way on the daily since I was deep in depression a couple years ago.
