Where is the sun…?

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , at 10:27 am by copingwithdepression

Feeling a bit low this morning.  The day just seems really bleak & is stretching out in front of me.  The weather is rubbish as well which probably doesn’t help (where is the sun?).  Will try and get through it as best as I can.  I’m also gettign stressed out about work things I have to do – & you know what it’s like when you get depressed, everything just seems so overwhelming. I’ll try and do little bits of them and talk about the problems so they don’t get on top of me and seem even more impossible.

I’ve read about the 50 million introductory chapters (more like 4 or 5 really) in my new book – Overcoming Depression and am now onto the nitty-gritty of the practical stuff.  I promise to read another chapter today, maybe it will help me feel a bit better.

Also have to try and do some sort of exercise hopefully it won’t rain, it’s looking pretty dark outside…. Bye for now.

No further forward really!

Posted in Uncategorized tagged at 8:54 am by copingwithdepression

WEll as the title says I’m no further forward in my thoughts about my next appt with the counsellor – to attend or not to attend?  I feel like I shouldn’t just give up.  But I just don’t feel entirely comfortable with her.

Got the book from the library yesterday that I wanted:

It seems good so far – it’s just a relief to know that I’m not going mad and so many other people are experiencing the same thing.

My boyfriend tries to understand but he just can’t and I usually end up feeling even more down thinking there is something wrong with me that I just can’t be normal.

I will read this book 1st now before the low self-esteem one as it is more applicable to my current situation.

I haven’t even eaten my breakfast yet so I must go….
