Do not give up Rose!!! Set a goal for tomorrow...maybe a small goal of just doing one minute of vaccing and putting it away so you don't trip

My laptop is not working and it's got me depressed. There are times when it works but only briefly after I turn it off and on a few times. It gives me false hopes at times. I plan on getting another one.

Sunday and Monday have been good days. I got stuff done. Large amount of laundry done. I'm back in the groove. Tomorrow morning will challenge me. All mornings do. I find it hard to get out of bed.

Congratulations @Rose76 - remember to celebrate your victories when they come, doing a lot of laundry is a big one

I am definitely "Up" today even though I wonder where my husband is. I am starting to get over things slowly, but the heartbreak is a real thing. I am trying not to fall into the "If only" way of thinking.

Today is my third day of not doing good. In two weeks, I see the psychologist again. I don't want to have to tell him I'm not getting better. We made a good plan . . . that I would find somewhere to go everyday and not stay vegetating in my apartment. I've stayed in pajamas the past two days.

It occurs to me now that 5 weeks between visits is kind of a long time. I think the psychiatrist didn't take me as seriously as he might have. He said something about how I could email him. I don't really know what he meant by that.

I didn't go to Yoga this week, like I had planned. This psychologist is probably going to say that he can't help me because I didn't stick to the plan.

I'm not really despondent today. Just horribly apathetic.

It's hard not to beat yourself up @Rose76 when you already feel like you messed up. Be gentle with yourself for not sticking to the plans. Plans change all the time, and sometimes it's tough to stick to them.

My way of getting myself up and going is setting alarms, I set several during the day for all kinds of things. It gives me the motivation to get going. I know you came up with a plan with your psychiatrist, but you can also draw up one for yourself, that you'll be able to stick to.

This is a process. I spent almost 20 years living in my parent's house just existing. I never realized that I wasn't even living. Coming out of it took something very dramatic for me, but for you, it's about pulling yourself out of the darkness by achieving one small milestone a day that lead to bigger ones.
