Feel like I can't focus on anything useful but then don't even try and then feel guilty. It's such a bad cycle.

An up! I just discovered something that changed a painful belief that wasn't true.

Depression does not seem to want to relent one bit. Awakened rather early today (4 AM) and then could not get back to sleep. So goes the day thus far...It would be nice to have some relief; the real relief is that it is Friday, but it's a small consolation as the depression has me in such a state that I just want to be alone when I get home...I do wish all of you well in your struggle against this terrible and invisible demon.

I'm not doing well. Too many disappointments. I'm mainly disappointed in myself.

Was busy in the morning with the usual Friday stuff - laundry and shopping. In the afternoon I did a small errand and picked up something I wanted that was hard to find, so that made me feel a little bit better.

Did not sleep well last night, even though I went to bed just shortly after 9 PM. Felt very depressed for most of the day and anxious with imagining how terrible things are going to be for me in the future. I go through periods when all I can think about are problems that will happen in the future that I probably would not be able to handle.

I'm still not able to do my exercises because of the restriction. I really miss it and it has helped me. Maybe soon the restrictions will be lifted.

Cleaned in the morning and that's about it. Making progress from the procedure I had on my face. But right now I'm not sure if I can get active quite yet. I'll wait until Monday when I contact the doctor about it. My friend suggested that I should go bike riding. It's a nice idea but I'm not sure if it's permissible. Perhaps it could be and it looks good but I don't want to take any chances. It's been very hard for me to take it easy for the last two weeks.

I feel a little better emotionally. Physically, I'm in pain. I'm trying to have a good mood.

Thanks for the new thread... could use a refresh or reset in general. If only there were a way to escape the daily grind and have some time in peace at the end.

Also just heard on the radio that the chances of a life-killing asteroid hitting the Earth increased to 1 in 1750 or something like that. But the good (?) news is that this won't happen for another 100 years.

What a dreary bunch we've turned into! Everyone here is so down.

Well, not to break the trend - I don't even bother getting dressed lately. I don't seem to care about anything. Maybe because I don't care about anyone. He's gone, and what's left doesn't much interest me. That life should be wasted on me, while the pandemic takes others who matter more . . . There's no rhyme or reason to it.

Wow. So called friends know how to keep a person feeling down. I was thinking of buying a place, mentioned it to a friend I've had my whole life, there's one down the street, and she said "there's not much to rent around here, i wish you luck". it was obvious what i was saying. She also deleted me on Facebook, not that I care about facebook, but really I don't know what her problem is. Does no one want us to succeed? I'm sore and tired. I want to help my youngest.

I am trying to work through my emotions by listening to self help video and meditation and writing out how I feel.
