When All Else Fails I Bake.

It was a good cake despite the haphazard icing…

I’ve been trying to fight off a depression the last couple of weeks. Unfortunately when I get depressed that’s when self-destructive thoughts begin creeping in to my head again. I want to write. I’ve got many ideas in my head of things I want to write about, but when I feel depressed my self-confidence goes out the window. The sad irony of it is that when I’m writing it makes me feel better about myself, but to start writing I have to be able to believe in myself and my writing abilities…

Cake #1


The most constructive thing I’ve done the last couple of weeks, apart from beginning to beta-read someone else’s novel, is that I’ve started baking again. To date I’ve made two chocolate cakes and now some chocolate chip cookies. I think I’m making them as an apology to everyone I live with for my shortcomings. I can be a moody bitch at times…


My chocolate chip cookies merged into one giant one šŸ˜¦


Anyway I’m planning to shortly begin work on part 17 of my Sky-Pirates story, so hopefully I will begin to feel better soon.


How are things going for you at the moment?

  1. Yummy, your sweets look delicious. My daughter bakes too when she has anxiety (I think) I know we get a lot of yummy cookies when she is trying to think of other things beside stress of anitiety. We all love those special treats so I am sure your roommates are also happy with your treats and have already forgotten about your moods. I just got through reading a post by Floating thoughts about depression, he did a great post. It was how anyone who suffers from depression should understand that they are Super heros https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/112051874/posts/2511 so keep writing and baking of course.
