I just can't get a break sometimes. I went to get a massage yesterday (Wednessday) and it felt really good. It got me out of some of my pain that I'm in. My depression has gotten worse because of all the crap and negativity going on. I had an appointment (Thursday) at 8am and had to call it off because I was sweating like bullets because I had a painfull headache. I half expected it anyway, but I was hoping it wouldn't happen.  
 
I also canceled my son's afternoon appointment because I didn't think I was going to make that one either and I was right. I'm ready to blow my top. I feel so bad about doing my appointments the way I did but I had no choice. I wasn't going to get in an accident in my car while being in alot of pain to the point of sweating. Not good, not good, not good.  At least I'm still alive and yes I've been drinking my water...way too much in fact because my blood sugar is still way down. I had a little Gatoraid today but only a little. I had water mostly because of the massage I received.

Good Morning Hara,

I understand the "appointment cancelling" as I have done that but I finally broke the behavior no matter how down I felt or how anxious I was.   I  set a goal that I would keep my appointments as putting them off was just dragging things out. 

Give yourself permission to be Okay with cancelling this time but please do try to make your appointments in the future.  It is a good feeling to come home and know you  met your goals.

Take care,
Kitt

Hi Hara,

I am sorry about your headaches. I hope that you can find out what is causing them. Give yourself permission for cancelling your appointments. Sometimes we just can't make it when we want to. Reschedule and hopefully next time you will feel better.

I hope that you are taking it easy. And not feeling guilty for doing so. This is your life and you need not suffer. Take care my friend, give yourself permission to feel the way you do. It relieves the guilt feelings.

Hugs, Karen

I think it was the massage that gave me a little bit of a headache. I am feeling better today although my blood sugars are still a little out of whack, but they are getting better. Well, I'm off to be paid.

Hi Hara,

I am glad that you are feeling better today. I hope things continue this way. Pay attention to your blood sugar levels. That can truly effect the way that you are feeling ie your depression.

Please keep posting. Today is payday for me too.

Hi Hara,

Hang in there, and be good to yourself. You did the right thing by not driving with a bad headache. It's not worth it to have an accident or suffer while you're driving. I'm glad you are feeling better, and hope your blood sugars stabilize soon. Take care.

I have Major Depressive Disorder as well as Anxiety/Panic Disorders. I'm not sure I will ever get better. I have my good days and bad on that end of it to.
 
I'm trying to cool myself and my bedroom down so I can sleep. It's been so hot here.

Hi Hara,

I have anxiety and depression, too, and honestly I think it's matter of learning to manage the symptoms and feelings as best we can with tools we learn in therapy and (for some) with the help of medication. It's a day to day challenge, but I know things will get better for you with time and practice. Be kind to yourself, and do what you can one day at a time. If you have a bad day, don't beat yourself up for it....just know you have another chance tomorrow. Feel better, okay? (((hugs)))

I've had my depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember. I just started getting help back in 1993 after my divorce. I never had any help when I was a kid, my parents were poor.
 
I hope and wish someday that I can apply for SSI or SSDI because I have worked some.

I always, and i mean ALWAYS feel unwell after a massage. it stirs up the toxins in your bloodstream and i hate the angle you have to lie down on, feels like the blood drains away from my brain. i ususally feel naseous and get a thumping headache- so that may well be the case for you too.

Well, I didn't feel the blood rushing AWAY from my head more like rushing TOWARD it. That's where my headache came from this time.  I have tension and a little migrain headache mixed in when I don't have a massage of any kind. Sometimes I just wish they would go away period.

Good Morning Hara,

I know how you feel about the Depression and Anxiety.  I have been stuck the past 3 days and I don't know why.  I will have times where everything is going well and I feel fine and then boom the depression is back.  It is hard to remain positive when it comes back out of no where.  confused

I have been to therapy and I try very hard to "stay in the moment" and not let the anxiety that accompanies the depression  go into overdrive.  I try to chase the " what if thoughts'" away as I know they only keep the anxiety in the red zone.

I do love a massage and do not get headaches but I would have to drive a fair distance to a salon that offers the service.  Sometimes a pedicure does the job for me and helps me just relax into the moment.

I really do try to accept that I am a person with major depressive disorder and GAD and most of the time that works............other times I just break down in tears and beg it to stop.

I will never give up as I know that I will have better days ahead and I just need to get through today.

Through therapy I have learned to take it one day at a time. Instead of worrying about how I  will get through the rest of the week or coming month,  I  try to focus on today. Each day can provide us with different opportunities to learn new things and that includes learning how to deal with our problems. I try to focus on the present and stop trying to predict what may happen next week. Next week will take care of itself.

Bless you my new friend and keep on talking with us.  You are an important part of the Family here in the Depression Forum.

I wish you peace,

Kitt

Oh well said, Kitt! Absolutely, you have such a great attitude in the face of adversity. Makes me want to strive to be more positive and accept my illness, and get on with living life, resentment free.
