Busy Day..That is a good thing

Tuesday, October 15, 2019

I think I have found the secret to helping my depression..just stay active and busy..I have been sleeping better, longer to. Making good food choices and getting exercise in everyday.
This is the first autumn that i can remember that my mood did not plummet..(So far anyway).
At first I was overwhelmed by all the changes that were going on in my life..Husband's health and all. I thought will I ever find the time to take care of everything..I was overwhelmed..All it took was one conversation with my dr. telling me..she knew I had difficulty making decisions so she would make it for me..I just looked at her and thought you don't know me very well..I will make my own decisions..I am older yes but I am not ready to turn over my life's decisions to someone else...and so the decision was made (by me) to continue to care for my husband at home.....

I found homes for my cats and they got to go together and for that I was happy..A few days alone with just me and husband in the house and I thought ..I am an animal person and I am really happiest when I have an animal I adopted a silky terrier puppy. She is so cute and so energetic but she is perfect..She will make a perfect companion for me when it is time for my husband to go higher level of care.

Yes the last few months have been difficult. But I am learning so much about time management. eating right and getting right amount of exercise for me..getting outside with my dog (Nosey Rosy) and soaking up the sun...

I have a lot of things I want to do and there is no reason i cannot accomplish all of my goals and take care of my daily responsibilities to the house and the family..It feels good to know that my plate can be full and I can do all that i can do by taking one day at a time, one thing at a time....

Getting up every morning with a goal and accomplishing it and knowingI have did my best is the greatest feeling in world...

It sure beats having goals and sitting back and doing nothing...I am blessed.
