Starting My Way Back

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

The past week to 10 days has been an emotional downward spiral. My depression is slowly taking its hold again. I’m doing my best to fight it but I seem to be losing the battle. Diet and exercise plays a big part of managing my depression, but as I begin to lose interest in things that once were meaningful, I begin to stop keeping my food diary and move less. I just want to stay home in bed. I just let myself get o tired and overwhelmed by trying to accomplish too many things at once. I need to keep things simple, so simple. I’m frustrated with the awareness I have to keep just to maintain a moderate mood. I was feeling so great couple of weeks ago, what happened? Everything is such an effort. I hate depression. Today I am going to rest and take it easy this morning and then this afternoon get some exercise in; that along with some healthy food might start to turn things around. Let’s hope.

    I can relate to what you are saying so much. I hope very much that you find a way to pull yourself out of the depression. Be kind to yourself and remember that each day is a new day. emoticon

    Depression is a tough thing. Try to get your creative flow going whether its drawing, reading about an interesting topic to take your mind off the details of life and focus on a passion. Regarding exercise the best thing to do is to treat it like brushing your teeth a must, a habit, if at all possible..and it doesn't have to be a killer workout..could be a 10-20 min walk. Just something to get the blood moving..

    You are in my prayers. Be strong. And this too shall pass. Focus on putting that energy from the dark void to an energetic creative place. emoticon emoticon

    If you're stuck for positivity, you can always chat with me. I'm available through the inbox here, twitter, facebook, etc.

    Life isn't about how we eat, or how much exercise we do. Those are just elements that help us to have the energy to do the things that make life matter. If you need them, I have an ear to listen and a shoulder to cry on.

    Little bits, steps, goals, pieces. Do them separately, easily, one here, one there. It can be very difficult to break out of depression's hold. You can do it, and you are worth it.
    I hope you are able to get outside just for a little bit today. It's beautiful out there. The sun is shining, the air is warm.

    Sorry to hear - would it help to concentrate on food only for a while?
    Sending uplifting thoughts your way.
