This so much! I’ve been doing mostly better lately too, and it’s confusing, because during the worst of it, I always tell myself that depression is an honest reaction to reality. Like, the world is shit, so sane people are the wrong ones. So it’s confusing when I’m able to live in the same world with all the same huge problems, but I can access happiness more and function more. I know that the world as a whole hasn’t changed, so I must have changed, but… yeah, it’s confusing. Yay for feeling mostly better!
