One of the most challenging parts of having a mental illness is that even with treatment, some days are harder than others. This is exactly why healthy coping strategies make all the difference.

Behind The Mask by Geoffrey Davis
Depressed, stuck in a place of unrest,

the fabric of my mind refuses to be undressed,
so for today I remain depressed…
