home again.

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Even though I knew it was coming, I still didn't have any way of stopping myself from sliding back into my depression, so once again I ended upstaging in hospital, I got home last night. I don't really feel that being there has changed how I feel, or done anything to improve things. The last few times I have been admitted its just felt like a holding pen, I think the most positive thing it does is to give Nikki a rest from me, and it simply makes me stop. When I say stop, I mean stop maniacally trying to do everything at one. Which is what I do.

I am trying to slow down, not do so much all at once. But I feel sometimes things are moving so fast that I have to move quickly to just keep up. If I joined any groups at the beginning of this month I really do feel bad, because once again I crashed and didn't follow them up. Sorry. I also loused up my online Literature course.

BUT I am ready to pick myself up once again and start again. I know as long as I have that I will always be ok.

    Pleased you are home. They are supposed to be changing the way they deal with mental health here aren't they? Let us hope it is sooner rather than later, not much help at all unless you search really hard.
    Never apologise to us, just do what you can, when you can, and don't put more pressure on yourself emoticon

    emoticon You ended up in the hospital for depression. I am Bi-polar too so have been there. Sometimes it just seems that the stay really does not help, because when you are released you still have to face day by day again.

    Hang in there; I know that winter is not far away and I hope that you can use the seasons of change to give you quiet time for reflection and that you can slow down. Do not worry at all about the things you do not do---literature will always be out there waiting; Spark People will always be here waiting. It's most important that you find the pace that makes you feel good without and within.

    You are always a winner when you pick up and keep going. There are always hurdles in life. Hold your head up high and do the best you can. What more can anyone want. The best we have, IS the best !!!

    Hang in the baby you have a long way to go !!!!

    I'm so sorry that your experience in the hospital was so unhelpful to your situation.

    I know that feeling of not being able to stop doing things. That is when we, most of all, need to rest.

    Have you given any thoughts to my recommendation of cutting back on sugar and carbs? I don't know if it will help you, but it sure helped me dig myself out of the pit of depression that I found myself in. Mind you, I didn't cut back, I stopped altogether eating sugar and refined carbs. I was pretty amazed how much it helped. I stopped feeling so confused, tired, out of sorts. It stopped the anxiety and I started to feel that there was hope.

    Even if it feels like just a holding pen, taking yourself off to hospital seems like good self-care. And, yes, a break for your partner can be a good thing. Can help keep the love strong. Good for you being ready to pick yourself up and continue where you left off. Wishing you strength.
