Typical Day

27 Jun

Some might say I lead a pretty busy life, others may say the opposite.  I have three children.  So I guess for the most part I am pretty busy.  There’s always activities to do, appointments to get to, house to clean.  Did I mention I hate cleaning!  It’s my least favorite task.  This typical day I am depressed.  I am fighting it hard and trying not to let it win!  I’m better than it and I know it!  I will go back to my mindfulness and meditation to ground me.  I’ve had a lot of changes over the last couple of weeks.  So I am attributing my feelings t0 all of these changes that I have been going through.  I’m very blessed and thankful for my children.  I’m not sure where I would be without them.  They keep me going!  I wasn’t as fortunate as they were to have such wonderful parents as my kids do!  Now I completely don’t talk to any of my family members and I am ok with that!  It’s been the best decision I have evern made in my adult life.  To be truly happy, you must surround yourself with positives and happiness.  If you want it bad enough, you will get it!  Strive for you dreams!  Cast away the shadows!  Live for today!!

Keep Going!!

25 Jun

When your friend leaves you high and dry, keep going

When you are out shopping and someone cuts you, keep going

When your cell phone dies, keep going

When someone hurts your feelings, keep going

When your car breaks down, keep going

When life is less than perfect, keep going

When your family is non-exsistent, keep going

When the sun is not shinining, keep going

When you don’t think God is listening, keep going

When you have been diagnosed with an illness, keep going

When you go to take a shower and all the hot water is gone, keep going

When your favorite show gets cancelled, keep going

When you find out that Spongebob isn’t real, keep going

When you find out this is the first day of the rest of your life, keep going!

To put it simply….

I have been making some major decisions over the past couple of weeks. I’ve been going through some med changes. I think I am finally on the right mixture! I have also made the decision to leave my therapist of a year and a half. I’ve been doing really well and feel comfortable moving on without a therapist for the time being. This is not to say I won’t go back at some point. I’m confident that I can handle things on my own, I’ve been very positive, practicing yoga and reading lots of books. Leaving therapy isn’t for everyone. You have to be stable enough and comfortable with yourself!! I am in no means saying this is for everyone. I’m very optimistic for what the future holds. I’m sure this is a temporary situation. I will continue with therapy in the future.

Depression

10 Jun

Depression is just a feeling.  Sometimes it is very difficult to see that when we are in the moment.  With proper help and care, we can manage our depression.  As a sufferer for many years, I know how hard it can be to move past this debilatating feeling.  We get so caught up in the moment that we can’t see anything else.  Even the wonderful blessings that are right in front of us.  Therapy, a good support system and possibly medication can help to manage depression.  It’s a long road and we many hit many bumps along the way.  After all, we are only human and are capable of only so much.  We may feel alone this is why having a support system is so important.  Even if it’s just one friend or family member.  We need to take comfort that there are people there to support us and there are resources we can look to.  There are many websites and self help books out there that are amazing and have helped me.  Mindfulness has also become an important part of my life.  It helps me through many difficult times and just getting through tasks.  Staying busy is also another way to combat depression.  Distractions are a good way to shake off thoughts of depression.  I have so much hope for all out there that suffer from depression and hope you can get through it!!
