Can't seem to get on tract

Wednesday, July 31, 2019

I really need some advice. Feeling out of control. Today had a doctor's appointment I forgot about. Ate potato chips for breakfast. Called on my forgotten appointment and managed to get another one today. I made it to that appointment and mailed a box off to my son whom is deployed (he's a Soldier). I went out with a friend of mine.
This changed everything. She told me she had to have surgery two times for cancer in her bladder, then someone is suing her for over 150K for a car wreck, and that no one is getting along in her church. emoticon for her.
Wow! Now I do have depression, and I have a lot of problems, but not as bad as my friend had had. I must stop this episode of depression, but it is so darn consuming. It is not feeling sorry for myself, but like I don't want to move or do anything, and I wonder if anyone cares what I do anyways. I have to stop getting this way. It is very hard this time.

    Depression is difficult but I do believe we can move through it becoming stronger on the other side. Take it one day at a time. Each morning decide on one or two things you want to accomplish just for that day - could be something like eat a healthy breakfast and go for a walk. I have found also that when a thought comes to mind that triggers the depression you have to come up with something you can do to get your mind off of that thought - changing the one thought / habit for a better one. Is difficult but I believe we can. If you are a believer in Christ I would suggest turning to your Bible at times like this.

    At any rate you are worth it, you can overcome it, you will overcome it - believe in yourself today making today a good day that you can refer back later bringing good memories to mind.

    Try to do one small positive thing a day-ie. Meditation or deep breathing. I know it sounds silly, but it does help. Good luck
