Depression Diary

Feeling much better, though I know it won't last.

Pessimistic? No. I know how my mind and body work.

Once you get into a mindset of depression it's what your body and mind get used to, like any habit. It takes time and effort to change that mental and physical habit for a new one.

Last weekend I had the whole weekend off. No work, no volunteering. The pressure was off so I could relax on one day, then fill the other with things I've wanted to do and needed to do.

I didn't pick up my guitar or start crocheting, but I did clean my windows and the fridge, not to mention cooking a proper meal for the first time in ages.

I got two jobs out of the way that have bugged me for months and still had time to relax, read two whole books, watch two movies, then sleep and eat properly.

Another step on the road to recovery, and no more feeling that I only live to work.
