Mood still sagging, trying to stay positive

Thursday, April 25, 2013

So sleep didn't help my mood any. I woke up in the same funk.

The one good thing is that I really, really had the urge both last night and this morning to head over to Waffle House for some pity-party comfort food. I resisted it, and went to bed.

This morning I'm finding that instead of being just sad, I'm annoyed and have little patience. I slept on the couch because he was snoring badly last night, and I think he was sneaking alcohol (which ALWAYS dials the snoring up to 11). At that point, I'd had it.

So I'm going to focus on just getting through the day, right now, making the right choices, and trying not to let the despair and depression get to me.

Definitely another walk in the cards.

    Keep holding on. A nice walk outside always lifts my mood, so I hope it does the same for you.

    I'm sorry to hear sleep wasn't helpful.

I know you are frustrated with everything going on in your family and you want to get some support, instead of being the supporter. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like your husband is capable of that while he's stuck in his addictions and depression. Sometimes when we can't get what we want from those we want it from, we have to look elsewhere to get what we want. Can you get support from other family members or friends? Can you reach out to others in Al Anon for support? Can you ask for help from your city/county/state, from mental health workers, or a social worker? You deserve support just like anyone - it's a matter of finding someone or somewhere that can give you that support.
