Today's not starting out too well. It's only 7:30, and I've already broken down in tears.
I told myself to step back from the situation and take a deep breath, and detach from the situation, but that didn't stop the tears from coming. My rational side knows exactly what triggers led up to these feelings of depression and despair (not enough sleep last night, unresolved issues that I'm worrying about, too many exciting events going on at the moment, recent car accident). When I get a buildup of so many stressors, seemingly all at once, I go on a downward spiral emotionally.
I'm way too familiar with this cycle, since I've struggled with it for most of my life, so it's nothing new. But I just don't want this bout of depression to negatively affect all the good progress that I've made so far since I joined Spark. This time, I don't want to turn to food for comfort.
So I'm reaching out for help and encouragement.
