Dealing with depression

Saturday, October 01, 2011

It must be my menopause that's causing me to swing back and forth between emotions now. This week it's been a week of being down again. some would say to count your blessings instead. Well i do have my daughter and friends and a good church I go to and of course all of you on Sparks. What is really getting me down is being without a job for so long and being in debt. i have credit cards to pay and bills. One is from the stupid neighbor who tried to catch our dog and was told not to.And then about a week ago I get this notice in the mail attorney about contacting my liability insurance carrier because she's trying to get money for being bit by our dog. But the way my daughter heard before she did this repeatedly to other neighbors. And i think it got thrown out of court cause i haven't heard anymore since. Yes, I know charging is not a good idea but what is a person to do when tour savings keeps going down and you have nothing to replenish it with? Like borrowing from peter to pay Paul. I can only pray something will open up soon. Also getting another cold doesn't help either. On the good side my sister-in-law is talking to me again. As of today I am increasing my cardio to 60 minutes. I did strength training on Thursday for 10 minutes until my back started hurting again. Have a great day everyone and keep on sparking.

    So sorry :( That is a difficult thing to cope with being out of a job and the finances in the cellar :( I hope you can find something soon. I have a Spark friend who finally got something after a year and a half..
    Good for you still keeping up your exercise in spite of it all! Be careful with the back, wish you could see a physiotherapist who could set up an exercise program that would not bother your back, and make sure you have correct form etc. I have back problems and she is suggesting I use poles to not only help relieve it when I walk, but to give me some upper body strengthening too. They can be a big help. They have helped me with a lot of my pain over the years..
    Keep on Sparking!
