The Blues

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

Another day of feeling down. But I'd been having better days this week, until today. I think I just hit the wall in terms of pure exhaustion. I've been working 12-hour days, and driving all day in the hot sun with no AC. The heat takes a lot out of you.

The good news is I have not been eating emotionally! I was good and ate veggie subs for lunch and veggie curries for dinner with nectarines and pears interspersed as snacks.

I even managed to not go back to drinking soda, which was my usual go-to beverage whenever I was stressed in the past. I've been drinking seltzer water with a splash of grape juice instead. It's an acquired taste.

    How are you feeling now?? Do you NEED to work 12 hr days? When a person suffers from depression and has lots going on, the extra long hours COULD be a recipe for disaster :-( As a general tip, get a small spray bottle and have it 1/2 frozen, ensure that the cap part isn't frozen. Use it as a spray to help freshen you, especially in the car.

    Anyone would be blue under those conditions. But you're not relying on food emoticon emoticon

    I too drive around without AC and get over heated. I've been adding seltzer water to just about everything so I don't miss the fizzy pop as much. Good luck with your journey and it sounds like you need to catch up on your sleep! Lucinda

    Golly sounds like you are doing every thing right.
    Just make sure you are hydrating enough with the hot weather.

    I get so exhausted I stay in and nap in the daytime and get out only early in the morning or after it cools off in the evenings.
    But I am retired and only have a part time job at a school.

    You are my hero. emoticon
