Taking care of myself even when I don't want to

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

I guess that's my lesson of the day. I don't have to feel good about it or feel like I even care to do something healthy and worthwhile.

Today, and the past several days really, I haven't even wanted to eat. Kind of an opposite for me :P It's a serious depression thing. But my body needs food, and so does my mind. So I'm eating at least something even when it just tastes like cardboard to me.

I'm also trying to keep with other good habits, brushing my teeth and excercising.

It's hard to care right now, but obviously a part of me still cares. And I can't let the depression take from me that I have made progress, however hopeless or down on myself I may feel.

    I understand that feeling! I am an emotional non-eater diagnosed with depression many years ago. Writing about is very good - it's getting some of it out and every little bit helps.
    Eating can be hard with these feelings, but you ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING putting food into your body anyway! You WILL feel better, and when you do, your body needs the fuel to let your mind function and be happier!!
    You're making GREAT progress!! If you'd ever like tt vent, talk etc, feel free to pop by my spark page!
    Hugs to you and I truly hope your spirits lift soon!
