Having a Tough Time...

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

I had a complete mental breakdown yesterday. It wasn't triggered by anything, it was just the weight of everything finally breaking through. Again. Times like this I HATE being so dang poor, because I think I honestly need medical mental help with deal with my depression and anxiety but there's just no way I have access to something like that.

I know my feelings are irrational and make no sense and "it's not the end of the world," but that doesn't help me cope. I KNOW they're messed up, but that doesn't mean I can suddenly CONTROL them. It just makes me feel even worse about it all when it happens over and over and I'm powerless to control myself or fix what's clearly broken.

I pretty much gave up entirely the last few days just because it's hard to even make myself get up in the morning. I'm trying to keep a positive attitude, but right now that's FAR easier said than done. I think I'm going to half give up on the food side of things, but I'm going to try and move'll be better than nothing and might be all I'm capable of right now. I need to get my feet firmly planted underneath me before I can walk steadily and I really don't want to keep collapsing.

I'm going to TRY to eat healthier, and I'm GOING to exercise more.

If I don't have power over much of anything in my life right now, I can at least try to control that ONE thing, right?

    Spark coach Dean Anderson has some great articles on motivation and "keeping on" here on SP.

    Taking control will empower you, so any small successes will help you gain MORE victories , one success at a time...

    You can do this!

    That's a good point. I need to try and keep that mindset. I need to find time/energy to come up with a thorough plan to combat this or I won't get anywhere. I need to stop flying by the seat of my pants when it comes to coping, methinks.

    I do not know about dealing with depression but like Jarol7 said today is a new day. Put yesterday behind you and don't let it affect today. emoticon

    Sorry for yesterday, now that's done ... Glad for today ... start over again. We've all been there. I'm on day # 68 of a 97 day journey.
