Depression slows you down

I notice that whenever I am down, I don’t work fast. Actually, whenever I am REALLY down, I don’t work at all.

I am putting figures together for a publication and I am just taking a heck of a long time. Whenever I see any loose ends that need to be tied, I just start panicking. Then, when I have pulled myself together, I move slowly. When I walk down the stairs, I do so as a baby would. One foot moves forward, and the other foot does not move ahead of the first one. Instead, it moves to where the first foot landed. I guess that’s why they call it baby steps.

Anybody else feel that way?
