The weather is beautiful, during the day. But unfortunately, as I work an hour away from my house, when I get off work, I come home, sleep and then get up for work. I really don't get much daylight to enjoy.........at least for the next week. I think it would be a great idea; I just can't make use of it for another week.

I understand. I have not had a bad couple of weeks, but only a bad couple of days. I had an event that threatened to put me in a tail spin on Tuesday. I spent all available time on Tuesday afternoon, wednesday, and thursday in bed. I didn't exercise, eat right or really check in on SP that much. My hands and feet felt like lead, I really had to make a concerted effort to move them and to even talk. I have clinical depression, so it was starting to get scary for me when I couldn't get out of bed. So, I talked to my doc and took another half dose of my antidepressant to help push me out of my slump. And i went out on my porch and sat in the sun for about an hour. This morning, I was able to get up with out too much b***ing, and I have on my workout clothes... so we will see if I actually work out later.

So, my suggestion to you is... if you can... get some sun. It is amazing how much it helps. I honestly don't know if it was the extra meds or the sun, but sitting in the sun just lifted my spirits immensely and my body started to stop feeling like lead while I was there. I really hope that you can find the source of what is getting you down and conquer it. I will be thinking of you.

Imperfection is important. If we were all perfect, then there would be no such thing as growth, and everyone would be extremely boring, which is, paradoxically, not that perfect.-- Dr. Matt

I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but if you try to get outside in the sunlight you might feel better. Go for a walk, don't tell yourself you're exercising if you don't want to, go to check out what's happening in your neighbourhood.

Hang in there.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit. - Aristotle

When things around us are bringing us down it is often hard to fight through it.

I don't know why you and your husband are fighting, but I find that I will often pick fights with my husband if other things are bothering me that I can't solve. Such as, if I found out someone I thought was my friend and wasn't, I might pick a fight with my husband because I can "fix" that. So, maybe you can talk to your husband about whats going on and let him help you. Maybe when you have this talk you have a no "fight rule" and maybe take it on a walk? This way you are getting a bit of exercise and working it out with your husband?

I know I often turn to food too in bad times, so you should try and keep good things around you.

I am really sorry to hear you are having a rough time,
Hugs,
Dawn

I've been having a really tough time over the last two weeks. First off, I've been having some problems in my personal life in general. Someone I thought was a friend turned out not to be; my husband and I have been fighting (which has very rarely happened in our 5.5 years of marriage); AND to top it all off, I'm back on nights for another week at work. (I rotate nights and days)

Consequently, I have absolutely NO energy. I haven't worked out more than 2-3 times in the last 2 weeks. It is becoming increasingly more difficult to care what I'm eating. I don't even feel like cleaning. Getting off the couch for anything seems like a huge chore!

I really need some motivation or maybe just some support. Any brilliant ideas?
