I received my first dose of the moderna vaccine for Covid and I think it’s causing depressive symptoms as a side effect. I have experience with despressive symptoms frequently since I have and take medication for Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD). One of the things I’m trying to figure out is how to care for myself when I experience these symptoms while caring for my child, doing distance learning with him and not lashing out at my husband. I want to use the model to help me function and remain committed to my goals when what I really want is to be left alone and not have responsibility. I understand these are thoughts and I’ve come up with the intentional thought “Lucky for me I have a lot of experience dealing with depressive symptoms.” I would be so thankful for any insight.
