How quickly.......

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

............feelings of depression set in. I must put away my Christmas decor and trees this weekend. That always gives me a down feeling. My daughter is back to TX with no formal plans to see her until May. So nothing special to excite me.

I also get down when the weather is gloomy and cold. And it is, here in southwest Missouri. It has been for a few days. I know. I know. My sister (in NH) says sun's been hiding for weeks there. And low temperature of 10 with high of 30 is not cold to my friend in AK who was excited when thermometer reached +7.

Other family circumstances seemingly have declined in the past couple of weeks. Mostly things I cannot change or control, regardless of how I try.

So now, I am in a funk. Feeling sad and depressed. Only want to sit at home in front of the television.

I know this will pass. But not as quickly as it has set in.

    I know how you are feeling. I have been in a slump too. This too will pass! You have been doing so well. Just know this is temporary and you will have better days. Hang in there and know that you have people that are here to support you.

    How about this. Instead of feeling sad about not possibly seeing your daughter again for a while give yourself a goal of working hard and eating right so that the next time she sees you she's shocked with your progress? Sometimes if I give myself a goal of aweing the people I love the next time they see me it forces the depression away and gets me to work hard on myself. I hope you feel better soon hun. Depression is a terrible thing to deal with. i go through bouts to. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I go on and off with depression. One day I feel great and then one day it is the opposite. I think it is time to go to the dr and get some help. I need to exercise and hopely that will make me smile for at least a little while
