Hi everyone,

It looks like things are well for the majority of us and that is great!! I have a birthday party coming up on Sunday for Micah, my four year old grandson. They are having a bubble party with bubble machines on each end of the picnic table and are giving all the kids a balloon and some personal bubbles to take home or to use at the park. It should be a lot of fun for the kids. I am just home from the gym and have sooooo much to catch up on with all the threads. I don't know where I have been the past week or so, but I've missed a lot on the boards. I hope that you all have a wonderful rest of the week and that you are all gearing up for the weekend holiday. Memorial Day is the kick off to summer around here. Sending positive energy and hugs to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon emoticon

I am feeling great. A teammate and friend of mine at work told me that I look amazing and that she can tell that I am feeling better. It made my day to have such positive feed back from a person that I truly respect!!

You were lucky to do anything with your father. Mine thought females were for procreation and cooking, nothing else. He played with my 2 brother's and included us girl's if we ventured out to play but, were excluded most of the time. I had the audacity to ask if I could go to College and he said for what?? To get pregnant or married and waste my money. I felt so ashamed and didn't know what for, for being born female???? I felt inferior for years after that, I became very withdrawn until my sister met and married my brother in law. He was a Savior to me, he teased me unmercifully until I began to laugh,talk. He gave me an outlet for my frustrations and pain. Then my sister had 3 kids 1,2,3, her husband was diagnosed with Hodgins Disease between 2-3. He went into remission and was looking good when he became allergic to the chemo. They had to take him off it and the rest I'm sure you can guess. emoticon emoticon

Struggling to really get on track today once and for all. I have been really unfocused with my eating. I think I just need to cook more so I am not tempted to grab junk food. I am planning to get out and weed the flowers today. We have had so much rain, the thistles have gotten taller than the flowers! Deb...the little ones will love helping out in the garden! I still remember helping my dad dig potatoes and how excited I was to find one, even though I was probably only four years old or so.

Have a great Monday, everyone!

Today husband got day off, so we had a lazy day sat back and watched movies I didn't like what I got for mail today....summons for jury duty...Just praying I don't get picked for the Grand jury. That is 2 months of Jury Duty. I guess it wont be that bad my son will be off for summer break and can do the morning milking and feeding. This evening we got to go out to dinner with my Grandma she turned 95 today! She truly an inspiration to me.

This weekend going to be busy. I just hope I have the strength to accomplish the work that needs to get done.

Hi Everyone,

Sorry that I have been gone for a few days. I took some time and spent a few days with my son at his house and had no computer access while I was there. So many things seem to have gotten past me during the past three days. I hope that you are all gearing up for the weekend and that you have a really pleasant one. I started the family garden while I was at Sam's. We will have two different kinds of bell peppers, two different kinds of tomatoes, green onions, zucchini, Rosemary, Thyme, carrots, Jalepeno peppers, peas, broccoli, lettuce and cucumbers. The garden should be fun this summer. I will have two little helpers when I weed and maintain the garden. It will be a good learning experience for Blaine, 6, and Micah, 4. I think that I have gotten it in just in time for the rainy weather we are expecting next week.

PAULAGRIFFITH75, Happy belated birthday to you!! emoticon emoticon emoticon Living well to me is being with family and friends and staying healthy enough to enjoy them and the great outdoors.

ZOOMZOOM1231, You are one of the strongest people that I know. You so remind me of one of the other beloved members of the Dealing With Depression team, The Lady Mary. She was strong like you and she had such wonderful words of wisdom for our members, just like you do too. You are an amazing person and I enjoy everyone of your posts.

KERRY4614, Hi I agree with you that it was a great post.

CRAZYNNYSSA, I hope that things at the ranch are going well and that you are feeling good. You are another one for whom strength is a virtue.

DISCOVERLLH, I'm so glad to hear that your interview went well. Who would have thought that self hypnosis could be so successful! It's nice to know that there is a process out there that can be of help.

AMANDAH1979, I hope that your weekend is full of good exercise and fun. Switching to a healthier lifestyle is so beneficial for everyone in the family. It is nice that your family is on board with your plans.

The weather here is overcast today. Tomorrow there should be more sunshine. It is shaping up to be a good weekend and I am looking forward to playing with the kids. Sending positive energy and hugs to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb

Just a quick check in... My brother hypnotized me yesterday to help with the anxiety I would have at my job interview today. It really worked! I was so surprised! I always have a panic attack during job interviews. My mind goes absolutely blank and I can't even remember my name. Today I was able to answer all the questions coherently, without sounding like a blathering idiot. For those of you struggling with depression today, I read a statement that said to "Perceive obstacles as opportunities for personal growth". Sometimes trying to put a positive spin on whatever is negative in your life can really help. I hope everyone had a good Wednesday!

Living well is to live the best we can with the challenges we face in life. I know who I am, and what I am capable of. I know that if we ask God he will strengthen us to over come our weaknesses and face life's challenges.

GOD GAVE ME LIFE and now I serve him by taking care of friend's that I happen to run into ( or GOD sent my way). Four now have had terminal illness's cancer, heart, MD. and now MS, I do what I can, I go to the Store, visit and I let them VENT then I try to encourage them. Just listening is a Very Important Thing. I know how important it is because I have had cancer 3 time's. Luckily I had someone whose shoulder I could cry on. At first then I realized that I was being tested and turned ALL my pain and fear over to Jesus Christ. From that time on I no longer feared it. Again The DEVIL tested me when I was hit by a car and at that time I could not move my legs but, I could move my toes. I broke 5 segment's of my lower back and 2 places in my left hip I also had a massive Hematoma. ( That's a pool of blood under the skin on my back) When I got to the ER the ATTENDING Doctor was waiting for me and he said " I expected you to be a corpse", MY reply was GOD's not ready for me yet!! For anyone who doesn't know the Attending is the person in Charge of the ER!!!! For him to take care of you is a treat ( So to Speak)!!! emoticon emoticon

I posted this on the team wall, but in honor of my birthday, I'm going to post it again: "God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well." (Voltaire) Living well...what does that MEAN to you? For me, it is being healthy; taking care of myself the way I take care of others; and taking time to enjoy life. Now...it is your turn....

That is one thing I will never try Rocky Mountain Oysters...I forgot to ask husband if they had that at the BBQ. He did come home both days stuffed with steak, but I didn't even get any for Mother's Day! My son made me turkey and sweet potatoes instead. He is 14 and a great cook!

I'm glad you decided to pass on the branding, I just knew the food would be too much temptation!!! I personally don't think castrating the bull's would NOT be appetizing, though a necessary thing to do. Enjoy your MOTHER'S DAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Mothers Day!!!


Branding is fun to watch...A person on horse back ropes the calf then my husband and another guy hold the calf down, while their boss brands it, and then someone will vaccinate it. If its a bull then they will turn it into a steer. This takes them about 40 seconds to do. They move fast. If I was allowed to do anything I would be vaccinating. I decided to stay home, and avoid the food. They had steak!

I decided to take the babies away from Dotty today. I found little Elly stuck in the fence this morning I thought she was dead. I got her to take a bottle and put her and her brother into a pen in the house. Dotty doesn't seem to care. It will be a work out to teach her to get into the milk stand the first few times. She will eventually get up there on her own for the grain.

I hope everyone has a great Sunday!

Happy Mothers Day to you all!!!! emoticon emoticon I hope that you all have an awesome Mother's Day! The weather is turning to rain today, so it is not going to be as nice as the past three or four days have been. My daughter is taking me out to dinner tonight for Mother's Day, so I am looking forward to that. I'm sure that my son will drop by for a visit today too. It should be a really relaxing day for all of us.

ZOOMZOOM, I agree with you that branding sounds much harder than mending fences, but they both soundlike they are hard to do.

CRAZYNNYSSA I hope that you had a productive day whatever you decided to do. Both of your options sounded difficult. I hope that you will be able to have a nice relaxing Mother's Day. It sounds as if you could use it.

I hope that you all enjoy the day and celebrate with friends and family. Sending positive energy and hugs to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb

Sound's like smelly work, think I would skip it, mend fences instead. Besides too much temptation to overeat, from the sound's of it.

Today is BRANDING DAY! The question is should I go help out, or stay home and repair fences...Decisions, decisions ....

There will be lots of good food down there, and lots of hard work too...I think I avoid them both lol Hope everyone is having a great day.

Deb sounds like fun spending the day at the park!

Hi all,

You can't ask for better weather here. We have sun shine and temperatures in the low 80's. I think that I will take Micah to the park today for some play time on the play structures. He should enjoy that and we will stop by my favorite place for coffee and get Micah a smoothie and myself an iced coffee to take with us as we walk to the park.

Melissa, congratulations on the 12 pounds you've lost. Whatever you are doing is certainly working and what good news at the doctor's office. I hope that your blood sugars reflect the weight loss and that you're blood work comes in great.

ZOOMZOOM1231 Hi, it's nice to see you as usual.

LIBERTY_JOY Welcome to the thread!!! I hope that you will join us on a regular basis. We are excited to get to know you. I hope to see you here often.

I hope that you all are having a terrific Saturday. May your day be productive and fun. I am forward to today and tomorrow. Sending positive energy and hugs to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb

I get reports back on 22nd for the blood work. The best news is I have lost 12 lbs! She just said keep up the diet and exercise. I am suppose to eat some sort of protein every 4 hours...So we will recheck weight and go over lab results in 2 weeks.


Yes there is lots to do today the sun is out so I can get some work done outside! Yesterday I had a great walk in the rain. I let Dotty out of the barn with her babies. When it started to rain I went out to check on the trio, and put them back into the barn. Well they were no were to be seen. We finally found Dotty on the back pasture but she didnt have her kids. We continued over to our main pasture, and under some trees her kids were cuddled up sound asleep. I was so mad at that goat I took her with her babies,and locked them back in the barn. I swear these animals know my goals to start losing weight. I think they are escaping and being brats to get me moving more lol

I hope that Friday is starting out to be a good day for everyone and that it will kick off a wonderful weekend for all of you. Micah is home today from school, so I will not make it to the gym this afternoon unless my daughter wakes up early enough for me to go. Since she works all night that may be impossible. I have exercise DVDs and videos on Spark that I can use today instead of walking, so exercise is not out. I also have weights and a stability ball to use as I work out and that is a help with some of these videos.

OHQUIETONE, you're so welcome. Anytime you need a boost do not be afraid to ask for support. I hope to see you on the threads often and hope that your mood is improved today.

CRAZYNNYSSA Good luck at the doctor's office. I hope that all is well with your blood sugars and everything else that they test for as well. I hope that you have a really good day today on the ranch and that you don't work too hard. You most certainly get in your exercise.

ZOOMZOOM1231 Hi, it's nice to see you here as always. You are such a great source of support.

Well, here's to kicking the weekend off right. Wishing you all a productive and pleasant day! Sending positive energy and hugs to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon emoticon

Zoom you have a great point there to get blood levels checked. Dang it I forgot I have to be poked tomorrow cause I know Oncologist will want to see a recent blood test...

If I do as I am told I see mine every 4 months for blood and other tests. I be happy when I can go back to seeing them once a year!

When was the last time you saw the Doctor and did you mention this problem???? I know that some nutritional deficiencies can affect how you feel a lot!!!!!!!! Been there and done that !! So I know from experience myself !!! If your Doctor doesn't think a blood test, is in order I personally think it's time to find a new Doctor. emoticon

Good Morning everyone! Its windy here today. I AM SORE, but I overcame todays first challenge I got up, and I got dressed!

A storm was coming in, so last night I chased the llama around until I could get his lead rope on, and take him up to the barn. Not good for them to get wet and cold. I thankful I have 2 trained dogs to help, or I probably still be out there trying to catch him!


Ohquietone I am having a slow start too. You are not the only one that feels down. Just take small steps! There is still plenty of time to go for that walk...There are some days like today that I just want to crawl back into bed, and forget EVERYTHING. There is nothing wrong with you.

Abetterme2015 Your not invisible! I look forward to seeing more posts. I feel sorry you feel left out.

Zoom I agree 100%. We should always be grateful we have another day

Deb Hope you have a great work out!

Hi OHQUIETONE,

You are anything but a failure! Depression makes even the smallest task into a huge challenge, so you are not at fault. We all need a little help from our friends when depression rears its ugly head. Nothing is wrong with you. You are a very worthwhile human being with special talents and gifts that are only yours. Maybe listing some of your positive attributes would help with your perspective. You have the determination to live a healthier lifestyle and you deserve to treat yourself well. I want to offer you encouragement and support today as you struggle with your goals. I am just a sparkmail away if you think that talking will help. Sending you positive energy and hugs!!! Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon emoticon

Hi Everyone,

I'm off to a bit of a slow start today. I'm determined to loose the weight but I find that i don't have the energy or motivation to take the steps needed to meet my goals.I'm looking outside right now and i"m saying to myself it is such a beautiful day i should go for a walk. I can't seem to get myself off my couch and get dress and go. I hate feeling like this. It so hard to do anything when i feel so depressed. I know if I get out I will feel better but i can't take that first step. What wrong with me? I feel like such a failure.

Hi everybody,

I will be going to the gym today. I haven't been able to get out of the house in a good week to get there. As soon as I pack the kiddie off to school, I will be going for an hour and a half's worth of workout. I am thinking of buying a personal trainer for three sessions or so. I just need them to set up a strength training routine that I can do at the gym. I don't know how to use the machines and I want specific exercises to do that will firm me up. I do the exercise videos here, but I haven't tried to adapt any of those exercises to my gym and I guess that I could if I learned a whole routine by heart. That's something to think about and it could save me money in the long run.

MEWING71, Congratulations on the walking!! You go girl. I hope that you weren't too uncomfortable the next day. Glad to hear that you are doing better with your program now that the weekend is over.

CRAZYNNYSSA, I hope that you are feeling better. Your workout sounds like it was hard. I hope that your son's braces did come off. I'm sure that you are all excited. What a wonderful person your orthodontist is!!! I love random acts of kindness. When I was a single working mother I contracted ecoli and was hospitalized for two weeks. I had no relatives and no one to leave my 7 year old son with while I was there. One of the nurse's that worked at my facility was kind enough to invite my son to stay with her and her husband while I was in the hospital. I had no money for the medication that I would need for after I was released, so the hospital staff got together and paid for my meds for three months so that I could recuperate the right way. It is one of my most cherished memories today.

ZOOMZOOM1231, you are so positive and uplifting when you post. I love reading your advice. You remind me a lot of a lady that used to post often before she became ill. Her name was The Lady Mary. She is very respected and much missed. I hope to see her again on the boards one of these days.

ABETTERME2015, I'm so sorry that you have felt invisible. I'm sorry that your posts have not been responded to. Please come here when you feel down. There is generally someone around to respond. Of course we all need recognition and you deserve to have that. I hope that you feel a bit better today, now that you have posted. Sending you hugs!! You matter and we do care. I am available by Sparkmail if you need someone to talk to off the boards. I love making new friends.

Well, I hope that everyone is having a good week so far. We've made it to Wednesday, so the week is half over. It is downhill from here to the weekend. Sending positive energy and hugs to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon emoticon

I know it's been awhile that I've posted but I felt I was invisible!!!!!!!!! every time I posted it seemed like no one was responding & this is supposed to be a supportive group when someone is depressed!!!!!!!! We all need some recognition!!!!!! I've been feeling a little down & trying to feel a little up!!!!!!!

Hello, I decided to try and be more positive. I think I have been down in the dumps looking for the bad, and I need to start looking for the good, and have a more positive out look.

Today I had a great 2 hour workout picking up rocks in the coral. Best part about the workout is I get paid!

We are hoping son gets his braces off tomorrow. The orthodontist here actually did his work for free! I was a single Mom at the time, and was just diagnosed with cancer. His office called, and said they wanted to do my sons braces at no costs to us I was speechless. We need more people like that in the world.

OK....a few days MIA....that's me. Life is crazy and Internet time has been limited. Unfortunately I should have gotten on here over the weekend, perhaps then I would not have strayed so far from my diet. Terrible eating over the weekend. AND despite attending a 5K my son was running in, I did very little in the exercise department. Good news, I did much better yesterday - the most walking I have done in years. Despite the cramping this morning, today is going to be a good day.

Hi everybody!!!!

Well, it is Monday again. Today is gym day. I will go and get my 10,000 steps and then some in. The kids are in school, the house is picked up and vacuumed and I am off for a morning walk around the neighborhood because the sun is out and it is in the 70's out there. I should have gone with my daughter on the hike that she's going on today. I don't know if I have it in me to hike 2 miles in and 2 miles out. Right now at the gym I average about 3 to 4 miles with an incline of at least 5%. It is not hiking in the mountains though. I will go with her the next time that she goes.

ZOOMZOOM1231 - Yes, my daughter, Jeni, is very driven. She wants more than anything to become a nurse,so she is working full time and will go to school full time in the Fall. It is a hard row to hoe that's for sure. She has very little spare time, but she manages to get it all done. Thank you for the good wishes. She will need them.

CRAZYNNYSSA - Wow, you are branding in addition to all the things that you already have to do? I don't blame you for having to rest every 30 minutes. You have a huge work load that you are responsible for . Like ZOOMZOOM1231, I wouldn't mind being on a ranch, but not one quite that big.

I hope that everyone is going to have a really great week. Mine is starting out well. Sending positive energy and hugs to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon emoticon

My husband volunteered me to help his boss with branding season! It starts tomorrow! I not very happy with that. It is going on my 100+ things to get accomplished today list.

Hi all,

Wow CRAZYNNYSSA, you have quite the ranch! I'll bet you get all the exercise that you can handle taking care of the animals and the property. Every day for you must be a new adventure.

This weekend we have absolutely no plans. My daughter starts a new work schedule this weekend, so Micah and I are on our own for the evening hours. She is working 5:30 pm to 5:30 am Friday through Sunday. She has taken on this schedule so that she is in good shape to start the fall term at nursing school in September. It leaves her with Monday through Friday day to attend classes. It looks like it is going to be cloudy today and sunny tomorrow, so maybe we will go to the park, so that Jeni can sleep better without all the noise in the household. I hope that everyone is having a good beginning to the weekend. Sending positive energy and hugs to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon emoticon

Hi everyone,

I hope that today marks the end of a good week and the beginning of a terrific weekend. Today I have to go with my grandson to the Neurodevelopmental Children's Center for an occupational therapy session. We don't have to be there until 1:00 pm, so Micah at least gets a half day of school in. My daughter is ill. She has what sounds like a really bad cold with laryngitis. I hope that the rest of us don't get sick too.

CRAZYNNYSSA, it sounds as if you have a huge day planned. Good luck with all your chores. What kind of horse do you have? I used to ride when I was much younger. I haven't been on a horse in years now though. I thoroughly enjoyed riding with my grandfather on his ranch. You must live on a ranch too. Having property like that is a lot of work. You definitely get in your exercise every day!

We have nothing planned for the weekend, even though it is supposed to be nice. Maybe we can take a ride up the Gorge and watch all the waterfalls. It's been awhile since I've been back home to Cascade Locks. Since my Dad passed away last year we've hardly been up there at all. I do miss seeing my friends. Sending positive energy and hugs to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

Glad its finally Friday! Son comes home early today from school. Today my goals are to finish putting in fences in upper and lower pasture and to pick up and clean the front room. Depending on energy level might train my horse as well. But for now I have to go milk the goats and feed the bottle babies... emoticon

Hi all,

Just a quick stop by to say hello and that I hope everyone's week is going well. I have the baby again tomorrow, so I will be gone all day babysitting grandsons. I have started doing my exercise video's over at my son's house when I babysit, so that I don't miss out on strength training on those days. So far when the baby goes down for a nap, I get in my DVD routine and feel as if I have accomplished something. Sending positive energy and hugs to all that need them. Take care and God bless, Deb

MEWING71, I hope that you got all your running around done and got to bed early. It is so draining when you haven't had enough rest. Hopefully the rainy weather will break soon. Coming from the Pacific Northwest I can relate to being tired of the rain. Wishing you a better tomorrow. emoticon Deb

ZoomZoom, it is very understandable that you are having to narrow down your team choices. I am still new and already see how hard it can be to keep up. Unfortunately, you really don't catch up with everything when there are so many different teams and people. I wish you the best.

Extremely tired today. I keep wanting to go to sleep... Unfortunately, I still have several places to go tonight before I can changed into comfortable clothes and even think about sleeping. The rainy weather is not helping.

Hi everybody,

LOSINGWEIGHT62, I hope that your Mother and your Brother are doing better at this time. I'm sorry that you have such deep concerns about their health. Hopefully the days will get better soon. Until then, always know that you do have this team to rely on when you are feeling down and out. I will be keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Blessings to you and yours.

BIKESANDROSES Hi!! Thanks for stopping by.

ANGEYK, I hope that you were able to get in your walk at another time of the day. Sunshine is wonderful. I love the Spring time too when it doesn't rain.

ZOOMZOOM1231 we welcome you to the team and this thread with open arms! I'm so glad that you have a doctor who understands your MDD well and is so responsive to your needs. Medication readjustments are a pain to deal with at times, but are a necessary part of managing a disorder. I think that it is terrific that you have a correct diagnosis and work hard to stay on top of it.

Today I have to go to the library. It is quite a little walk, but I need the steps for this next week's tally. I have seven books to return and at least five to pick up that are on "hold". I am still having a bit of a tricky time with my knee, since I fell on Tuesday. I am not hurt badly, but my left knee is bruised and is giving me a time when I do my DVD strength training videos. I have to modify everything for that side of my body. I would like to get to the gym today to walk on the treadmill, but my daughter has the car and it is really way too far to walk from the house. The library walk will have to do today. I may take the bike out and ride around the neighborhood. It is all weather dependent. I hope that everyone is having a great weekend and that your new week will begin on a high note. Sending positive energy and hugs to all that need them! Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

I want to join, I am already on 7 teams now. Sorry!! I am fully aware of the importance of suicide awareness. I had attempted it 2 times along time ago. I was put on med's. for the first time and that made me even more depressed. If it weren't for my belief in GOD which made me go to the hospital I would have died. I now have a Doctor who understand's that I have Major Depressive disorder not schizophrenia or bipolar. I am aware of my disease and when my medication begins to fail I go to her right away, So I have been there and done that!!

I hear you BUT, you CAN NOT dwell on those thought's say NO to them when they pop into your head. In time, it will become second nature and you will feel so much better emoticon emoticon emoticon .

ZOOMZOOM I definitely got outside for a little while yesterday and today. They are calling for more rain so I am enjoying the sun when I can.
Hang in there QWESTING. You are right...The sun is out and positives are the best things to look at. Years ago I quit smoking. I did it cold turkey. Every time I thought about grabbing a cigarette and had any kind of desire to smoke I would tell myself I was not a smoker. I would put little notes to myself about being a nonsmoker in various places that I was sure to see them throughout the say. I chose to approach things in a positive way. The Bible tells us to Speak things not as though they were. Right now I am choosing to be positive and focus on and speak positive things for my life. Each morning I am choosing to be happy (whether I feel that way or not). The hope is that the more positive I am, the more times I say "It is a Great day!", the sooner and more frequently I will feel that way.

Hi all,

Pretty tough couple of weeks, between sad anniversaries, panic attacks and low mood. Seeing my doc tomorrow, trying to not feel gutted that yet another med appears to have failed. But the sun is out, I need to get out there and look to the positives. Hoping the same for you all!
