I am happy to report that I am reading again. That is a sure sign that I am doing great. Now I just have to get off my ass and start exercising again. I have not gone for a walk since this whole 'episode' started. I heard a bird singing this morning, when I let the dog out, and it made me smile. I actually started to sing 'The hills are alive with the Sounds of Music"! Ok not very well, but you get the picture.
I started thinking about depression and how it affects me. I notice ...
Increase in appetite
Tired tired tired
Cry at the drop of the hat
Mean little bitch voice in my head
No interest in anything
The death nell...not wanting to read!
Soo, I have not been exercising. You know what that means...thats right, I bombed my New Years Resolution.
On another good note though. I have written a huge To Do list. I put them in columns like People to call, Things to Do, Things to think about. Then I color coded them Red (right now), Orange (almost right now), Yellow (soon) and Black.
I have done almost all the red, though it took me over two weeks to do them all. I feel better without all those To Do things hanging over my head too. Some of them were really simple, like calling the doc. I hate talking on the phone, or seeing people. All of the items on the red list were about calling people for appointments. Sheeesh!
Well I am off to go singing...
