I am feeling more hopeful today. I made peace with some things I was worried about. Sometimes that is all it takes to make things a little better.

Haven't been here for years...depression is back and so am I...for now. Wrestling with, you guessed it, regrets...about my life, choices, business decisions, and more. I'm told to count my blessings, which I do...Just feeling trapped.

I am using music, humor, games, & CBT come backs to keep me in the ups as much as possible.

the batteries went in my small fan todan

frustrating since the ones it takes you can't get from the shop... need to order them online.

was meant to have a call from my mental health team at 12:00 (I called them earlier and told them I needed to talk), but at 15:34, and even later, nothing

been feeling quite low in terms of thoughts, actually really bad

I haven't been sleeping well lately. When I don't sleep well, I get depression very easily. I feel like I'm loaded with depression today. I guess it's because of a combination of things that went wrong and excessive worrying about the future. I'm worried a lot about my health and maybe there'll come a time when the careless things I did for myself will catch up to me.

I seem to be improved physically this morning. Mentally, I'm having much anxiety.

I see a doctor this morning. I wish I could get medication to relieve anxiety. I'm not sure I even dare ask. Don't want to be seen med seeking.

I know sometimes doctors assume we are med seeking, but there can't be harm in asking for that help when you need it badly. Best to you, i hope you get something for help if only temporarily. Hugs

Not much of a day so far. Just did some light shopping. I plan on a bike ride later unless something else comes up. There had been some days, since I left my job, that have been like that. I planned on my ride and then ended up staying in because of having to make important phone calls suddenly.

I woke up this morning with heavy thoughts about the future as to what will happen to or for me. Having dreaded thoughts like how will I handle being very ill and alone. I'm fine now but I'll never know when my health will take a tumble. And then I think about, when I pass away, how will that be handled?

Right now I'm waiting on a payment that was supposed to have arrived last week, but there had been some problems with the processing of it. That has sent me into a real whirl and it feels like a wake-up-call.

Sleep was okay last night; but the trapped feeling is still here. I worked diligently to mitigate this depression once before, and I suppose that I'm doing the same work again. Better days ahead.

I'm feeling very stressed this afternoon. I've had a busy day. But I made things easier on myself for tomorrow. So that should help. I plan to go to bed soon.

I still have severe anemia. I might have to the hospital tomorrow.

The doctor did prescribe Ativan for my anxiety. I sure hope it helps me feel less awful.

I'm not experiencing anything very down or up right now. I have some goals for today. I'm going to try harder to fulfill at least part of them.

I'm feeling very low today. I don't feel like doing anything. I just want to sleep all day.
