Moment of Depression

Thursday, July 13, 2017

Well...I got back on Sparkpeople and I was pretty positive at the time. I think I was trying to do too many things at once and I was stressing myself out. My therapist pointed out that I am an all or nothing type of person and I have never really thought of myself that way but I suppose that is part of my problem. I tend to obsess over things. So while i'm obsessing other more important things don't get done. Sp is important to me but I got so caught up cleaning and planning things that I wasn't exercising...or taking my insulin...or some days eating or drinking enough. So...I managed to drag myself away from my own head to come back. I know i'm not off to a good start but...i'm going to try again. So this is me hitting restart. Ready, set, go!

    I always say you haven't failed until you say "I quit," but even then you can start again if you choose to.

    I too deal with depression. I worry about everything. It is hard when you are having a bad day. Just remember that tomorrow is another day. Don't give up. Just because you have a set back doesn't mean it's over. Regroup and keep going. Welcome back.

    Welcome back! Don't be so hard on yourself. I have been there before but some people don't come back. Give yourself a pat on the back! You can do this!
