I had another dull day today. I feel like my depression is getting worse. I don't feel like doing anything. All I want to do is stay in bed under the covers which is what I did for about half the day. The other have I managed to make my self a nice lunch and Dinner. For lunch I had a salad some 40z of tuna and half a mango. For dinner I made myself chicken fajitas. I have to say they were good. I managed to do the dishes after dinner and now I am blogging. I wish this depression would just go away. I just want to be happy. I hate feel down all the time.

    Is tomorrow the big day? I'm hoping it is. No matter what - I hope you write down all you are feeling or at least remember to share it with the counselor. You can do this - do what is best for you. You need it - and it's about time you started to feel better.

Sending you hugs today and hoping that the doctor listens with a open heart.

Your Friend,
Sumay

    emoticon Tanya, that combo of the tuna and then the mango sounded so appealing to me - I'll have to try it. Thanks for the idea! The chicken fajitas sound deee-lish, too... Good for you, for taking the time to prepare yourself some really appealing foods! emoticon It's such a relief to get the dishes done before bedtime as you did, too. I was listening to a podcast where a guy mentioned he prefers to leave his dirty dishes in the sink and wash them in the morning, but I'd hate having to do that; I'd feel bummed when I saw them in the A.M.

You know what I try to do when either anxiety or depression are dogging me and I get in that state where I really don't feel like doing anything? I think of just ONE thing I don't particularly want to do for that day - balance the checkbook, clean the bathrooms - and I do it that day. It never fails: The next morning, I feel better about myself, and I feel a little better overall, too.

Take good care of yourself; you're making some good progress there. emoticon Susan

    Its good you are seeing a doctor soon. Will be interested to hear how it went. Staying in can really bring you down. I know because I am mostly housebound. If you have an injury that pains you that ongoing struggle to withstand the pain can bring you down. I wonder if you use a wheelchair or a walker you can sit on (rollator) If you do then you can go out in the sunshine and enjoy a change in your routine. It will lift your spirits. Remember the CE team has lots of resources for gentle workouts you can do sitting in the chair that don't put pain on injured body parts. Movement is a gloomy mood buster, as is whatever music you like. You can overcome this, with a little help from your SP friends and your Dr, Hang in there hon, it always seems the darkest before the dawn. emoticon

    I believe you said you are getting in to see the doctor on Wednesday. Be sure to let us know how that goes. Your meals sound delicious. I think healthy foods are more satisfying and filling than junky foods, so eating healthy like you are now should help you on your weight loss journey.

If I stay inside the house, it can cause me to feel 'down.' I seem to always be going somewhere and doing something, but I think that is good for me. I know you have pain in your leg from the injury or I would suggest walking, but could you still get out of the house, maybe just to visit the library or just to do something that would get you up and out of the house.

I am keeping you in my prayers in hope that you will soon be feeling better. Take care, and keep in touch.

HUGS
Pam
