depression doesn't equal fat

Saturday, January 07, 2012

Life is catching up to me.
Usually, I binge eat and still get a ton accomplished (including gaining a few pounds). I've decided not to find comfort in food but what has happened is now I just want to go back to sleep. I don't want to get out of bed. In fact, I'm still in my sleepwear at 12:30 in the afternoon, lounging in the bed while typing this.
I couldn't get my tail in gear and made excuses for not being ready so Thatman went on errands without me. I know when he comes back he thinks I'll be washed, dressed and even half way cute. Living with someone is NOT conducive to feeling BLAH.
If i still lived alone I could do nothing all weekend and then Monday feel bad about it and go into a manic cleaning rage. *SIGH*
And NO I don't want to get up and exercise.
Have I mentioned that depression sucks.
Well, here's to another cup of liquid energy (COFFEE) and going to do my hair. Pay no attention to the sluggish grouchy woman waddling through the house.

    Depression sucks and when you have the feeling that no one understands makes it feel worse. I know I've been there. It's an awful downward spiral. Reach out to someone. Tell them you don't want advise, you just need to vent. Hope things will get better. I'll say a prayer for you.

    Hang on. Sometimes life just throws a curve ball. I too suffer from depression sometimes. Going outside, getting some sunshine can work wonders. Good luck!

    Hey don't sweat it. The fact that you are still in bed and not raiding the fridge has to be a good thing!
I didn't get out of my PJ's till 2.30pm today. The weather is yuk and all there was to do was watch TV. So... I got out the knitting to keept the hands busy and watch the box.
Depression does suck. I know as I have suffered myself on and off for years.
If you fancy a good read about it try "All Blacks Don't Cry" by John Kirwin.
Keep strong and sometimes we do need to slouch around and be slobs.
I did manage to get sorted by 3.00pm and showered and put on make-up and I feel a bit better. I have to walk the dog so that's how I'll get out the door today!!!
