My Cure For Feeling Sorry For Myself or Depression

Monday, November 11, 2013

Sometimes I feel like the normal happy me is locked inside and looking out while this person who can only see the bad and the negative things in life is in control.
So I am overweight.
I recently found out I have Type 2 Diabetes.
I don't have a full time job.
And my closest is conspiring against me. In the past week 2 times it has crashed to the floor with all my cloths. Yikes!!!! Big mess but I think I got it fixed for good this time. I put an old crutch in the middle of the bar to hold it up and screwed the brackets into the walls with longer screws.
Before I went for my walk today I felt like everything was going wrong and I couldn't do anything right.
Now after my walk I feel better.
I have lost weight and I am still losing weight!!!!!
I am controlling my diabetes and hope to one day do so without having to use insulin.
I can go look for another job when I am ready to and we are getting by for now.
And my closet, well as I am losing weight and having to wear belts or pin up my cloths now so they will fit. Soon the old cloths will be gone and the new ones won't take up so much room!!!!!
I guess the moral to this little blog is a good long walk can turn negative feelings and emotions into positive ones!!!!!!

Have an Awesome & Amazing Day!!!!!!

    I agree with you too Ricki. Walks can help one feel so much better when feeling bouts of depressive thoughts and feelings coming on.

    That is the biggest reason that I take walks any more! If they are outside, they are better for me. I can reflect on things better; I find that if it is a "normal" day it takes me about 10 minutes, but if it is a harder day, it takes about 20.

You have lots of positives here, my friend.
