I’m proud of you and the goals you set! Sound achieveable and wise. I’ll borrow from you as I too have more depression issues in summer.
Hussajupeia it’s long weekend friday!
I was up at 2 am, the long TV evening totally messed with my sleep. Had breakfast at 4, chores were done by 6 and I had a nice nap after shower. Weird morning
The insurance appointment turned out good, the rates will decline markedly with the new insrance company. I’m happy.
Lunch was leftovers, the weather is nice, the cats want cuddles and I will nap away in the afternoon enjoying a relaxed time.
Garden work is sheduled for the weekend, I’m so happy with the new herbs I’m going to plant.
I do have a nice and happy ordinary friday with nothing special and all fine
I think it is more common than most people think to have worsening depression in the summer. All that pressure to be outside living it up is tough on my depressed brain. This is the summer that I conquer that voice of sadness.
I’m really focused on depression these days. Quitting alcohol gave me such a mood boost and I’m pretty sure if I can just listen and do some friendly hand to hand sparring with this occasional depression I will be unstoppable.
As part of my day off plan I stopped by to see my sister. She was holding a patio chair for me that I was half done spray painting. We are very similar except she is still actively drinking.
About 10 seconds after arrival I realized she had been drinking. She was angry at her boyfriend so we talked through a lot of that. My go to emotion was sadness hers is anger. My go to coping method was drinking hers still is.
It makes me very grateful that I no longer drink when I see people I love drunk. It felt like I had all the self awareness in the world back then when in fact I was hiding. I felt tough back then but I bet I looked so scared. I am so grateful to be in my semi clean home with a clear head and iced tea and a sandwich in front of me instead of oblivion.
Im all outta hearts! im freezing my spending for the weekend. Granted i bought all things we “need” but it was alot of money for one day! Groceries, more dinner plates, size smaller clothes (4 shirts, 2 capris)…lots of money…erg
I think the moderators @ only works in PM context. I asked the others for the number of likes. I only found number of 50/day when you are abouve TL 0. But this seems a general default setting for discourse.
