Understanding Your Mood Disorder
The Midweek Muse:
A little inspiration to get you over the hump
The theme this week is "Wild Things "
I just watched the move, "Where the Wild Things Are" and I really enjoyed it. It is slightly based upon the childhood book by Maurice Sendak but it is a very in depth psychological romp into some pretty heavy subjects in my opinion.
Has anyone seen it?
When you are feeling depressed it is possible that you may feel like a "wild thing", something not human, uncouth, and wild.
Do you ever feel like a wild thing?
Here is my poem about feeling like a "wild thing" and I hope to see yours.
Dangerous to touch
Feel my disease
Filling your veins
Who am I?
You don't know
I could be you.
Seamless, I rip
My story is yours
You know the words
Before I write them
Wild and free
Just an illusion
Trapped, I bleed
Just like you.
Now it is your turn. Have you ever felt "wild" as though you were some beast because of your mood disorder. Have you ever felt less than human, willd, or like you needed to escape? Have you ever felt like you were contagious or infectious because you suffer from depression?
